Red Reishi Mushrooms, also known as Ganoderma lucidum and lingzhi mushrooms, have been used for centuries in Chinese medicine, dating back to the Han Dynasty over 2,000 years ago. These fungi have a shiny cap that is red in color and shaped like a kidney, with white or brown pores underneath. The mushroom is soft and corky but their red-varnished cap gives them a striking appearance.
Red Reishi Mushroom Extract has been prized in Chinese medicine and adopted over the world for its health benefits.
Various studies and anecdotal evidence suggests that Red Reishi Mushroom Extract uses include the following areas:
In general, Red Reishi Mushroom Extract uses seem to be effective for conditions marked by a compromised immune system, inflammation, and allergies. Its chemical constituents include polysaccharides like beta-glucans, steroid-like ganoderic acids, coumarin, mannitol, alkaloids, and fungal immunomodulatory proteins (FIPs), which help to bolster the immune response.
When you buy Red Reishi Mushroom Extract, it’s important to be sure you’re getting a high-quality product. Unfortunately, many brands today use manufacturing processes that lead to a low-quality product.
Red Reishi Mushrooms are typically grown on a bed of grain, like rice. First the mycelium develops, which is to a mushroom as roots are to a tree, and then the fruiting bodies, or the above-ground mushroom portion, develops. Although most of the active compounds responsible for the health benefits of the mushroom are found in the fruiting bodies, many manufacturers only allow the mycelium to develop and then grind it with the growing media and package it.
Nootropics Depot and Nammex offer only high-quality Red Reishi Mushroom Capsules. Derived from organic whole fruiting bodies, our extract retains the helpful compounds that have been prized for centuries.
