One of the most renowned medicinal mushrooms, our Reishi Mushroom Powder is used to relax the mind, energise the body and support immunity.
- Australian grown – we grow our Australian reishi on our off-grid farm in Gippsland, Victoria.
- Sustainably harvested – our Australian reishi is grown using nothing but organic waste materials, fresh air and water.
- Hot water extracted – our reishi mushroom is extracted using hot water, making the medicinal qualities available for your body to use.
- A unique blend – we combine Australian reishi with ganoderma lucidum (one of the most widely studied strains of reishi), which grows in the Chang Bai mountain region of China.
Reishi is a woody, kidney-shaped fungi with a beautiful reddish colour and glossy sheen. In ancient Chinese culture, reishi mushroom was a symbol of success, power and longevity (and you’ll see why when you experience its extraordinary health benefits).
Most notably, reishi mushroom promotes a sense of calm mind while energising the body. Animal and human studies have shown reishi’s rich concentration of organic germanium, polysaccharides and triterpenes may work to improve immunity, heart health and sleep (to name a few).

What is hot water extraction?
When we eat mushrooms in their raw form, the medicinal compounds are hard for the body to digest. By putting mushrooms through a hot water extraction process, it breaks down their nutrients making them more available for your body to use. We wrote an article about it here: mushroom powder vs extract.
What is myceliated brown rice and why is it in my Reishi Powder?
If we liken mushrooms to plants, mycelium is like the underground root system (and the mushroom itself is like the flower). So, when mushrooms are grown in a farming environment, this root system needs something to feed on to give the mushroom nutrients (enter, brown rice). We choose to use brown rice as new research suggests that the combination of mycelium, brown rice and mushroom fruit body fruit body have greater medicinal benefits. The fermented brown rice is also loaded with goodness. So much so, we wrote a whole article on it: the health benefits of mycelium.
Are there any side effects of reishi mushroom?
Reishi is considered a safe mushroom to use in your diet with side effects being rare and minor. But as with anything, it’s best to consult your doctor or medical practitioner before incorporating reishi mushroom powder into your diet.
Can children and pregnant women use reishi mushroom?
We’re mushroom farmers, not doctors. So, health advice isn’t our area of expertise. If you’re an expecting mother or have children, it’s best to consult your doctor before using reishi supplements in your diet.
Is there any research on the nutritional and medicinal value of reishi?
We use a combination of Australian reishi and ganoderma lucidum — much of the research we see today is on G Lucidum. Take a look…
