What is Ganoderma lucidum?
Red Reishi Mushrooms, also known as Ganoderma lucidum and lingzhi mushrooms, have a long history of use, dating as far back as the Han Dynasty more than 2,000 years ago. Red reishi mushrooms are identified by a shiny red cap with a kidney like shape with white or brown pores on the underside. Red reishi ganoderma lucidum mushroom is soft and corky but the red-varnished cap lends them a vibrant appearance.
Red Reishi Mushroom Extract has been prized all over the world for its various reported benefits. Several ganoderma lucidum benefits have been reported from all over the world over a few years. Various studies and anecdotal evidence suggests that Red Reishi Mushroom Extract uses include promoting cellular function and immune health. Red Reishi mushroom constituents include polysaccharides like beta-glucans, ganoderic acids, coumarin, mannitol, alkaloids, and fungal immunomodulatory proteins (FIPs), which help to support healthy immune function.

What is Whole Fruiting Body?
You may see that we have a few different versions of extract ratios on some of our mushroom products.Whole fruiting body means that the red reishi mushroom extract is made from the actual mushroom that grows above the ground. Our whole fruiting body extract is created by treating the mushroom fruit body material with hot water to break down the cell walls of the mushroom.
The cell walls are made of chitin, a firm material that keeps active components of the mushroom trapped inside. Chitin acts as a protective outer layer of the cell, keeping all the beneficial components like beta glucans stuck inside. Breaking down these cell walls enhances the overall bioavailability of beta glucans by freeing them from the cells, allowing them to be more easily absorbed.
All of the raw red reishi mushroom is processed with hot water, dried out and made into a powder. Additionally, none of the starting material is discarded, making the 1:1 red reishi mushroom powder a full spectrum extract that provides all the beneficial compounds in the ganoderma lucidum mushroom. Think of all our 1:1 mushroom extracts as whole mushrooms turned into a powder, except the chitin is broken down to make the beneficial components of the mushrooms more bioavailable. Since none of the initial mushroom material is lost, the beta-glucan content is very high. This means that with the full spectrum red reishi mushroom extract you will be getting every beneficial compound within the ganoderma lucidum mushroom.
Organic Whole Fruiting Bodies From Nootropics Depot and Nammex
When you buy Red Reishi Mushroom Extract, it’s important to be sure you’re getting a high-quality product that ensures you’re taking advantage of ganoderma lucidum benefits. 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 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.
