Traditionally known as “the mushroom of immortality” - Reishi mushroom is used to calm the mind, energise the body and support immunity.
Recognised as an ancient superfood, Reishi is a type of woody fungus that emerges out of dead or decaying hardwood. It has a distinct fan-like appearance with a glossy sheen.
Reishi mushroom is a nutritional powerhouse. It has a rich concentration of organic germanium, polysaccharides and triterpenes which can improve immunity, energy and sleep. In our fast-paced world and jam-packed schedules, our Reishi Extract works to release your inner-calm.

What is dual extraction?
Mushrooms and their medicinal compounds are difficult for the body to digest. Dual extraction means that our Reishi mushroom is extracted with both alcohol and hot water. This process enhances the mushrooms effects as it draws out the medicinal compounds.
What is myceliated brown rice, and why is it in my Reishi Extract?
Mycelium is the vegetative part of the fungus (the underground root system). New research suggests that by consuming a combination of mycelium and the fruiting body there are greater medicinal benefits. In the forest, mycelium absorbs nutrients from the soil, however, as we grow our own mycelium right here on our farm we use brown rice to give it nutrients. And the exciting news? Studies now suggest that the fermented brown rice substrate is a nutrient powerhouse. Click here to read more about why we use myceliated brown rice.
Are there any side effects of Reishi mushroom?
Reishi is considered a safe mushroom to consume, however as with many foods, a small percentage of people are susceptible to allergic reactions. Symptoms include a dry mouth and throat and if you experience any adverse effects please discontinue use.
Can children, pregnant women and nursing mothers use Reishi Extract?
As mushroom farmers, this is not our area of expertise. Due to the lack of research in this area, we recommend children, pregnant women and nursing mothers avoid our products or consult their doctor before incorporating Reishi supplements into their diet.
Is there any research on the nutritional and medicinal value of Reishi?
Much of the scientific research that’s been carried out on Reishi mushroom is on Ganoderma Lucidum. While research still has a long way to go before we can draw any definitive conclusions, there are some very promising discoveries. Take a look:
