Japanese name - Reishi or Mannetake (10,000 year mushroom)
Chinese name - Ling Zhi (spirit mushroom - mushroom of spritual potency)
The 'mushroom of immortality' of Chinese legend, Reishi is rich in active polysaccharides as well as the triterpenoid compounds (primarily ganoderic and lucidenic acids) responsible for many of its wide-ranging benefits.
Together with high levels of polysaccharides, Reishi contains over 100 triterpenoid compounds (ganoderic and lucidenic acids) which are responsible for many of its unique properties. Although Reishi is traditionally made into a tea (hot-water extract) these triterpenes are poorly water soluble but highly soluble in ethanol (alcohol). MycoNutri Reishi therefore combines concentrated hot-water (polysaccharide-rich) and ethanolic (triterpene-rich) extracts of log-grown (Duan Wood) Ganoderma lucidum and is standardized to contain 30% polysaccharides and 3% triterpenes in order to deliver the full benefit of this most revered of mushrooms.
