Description

What Is Ganoderma lucidum Red Reishi Mushroom?

Red Reishi Mushrooms or as they’re known by their scientific name, Ganoderma lucidum, have been used for over 2,000 years in traditional Chinese medicine. Red Reishi Mushrooms were first used in Chinese medicine during the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD). Research has found information written about Ganoderma Lucidum mushrooms in classical Chinese medical texts. Red Reishi mushrooms are sometimes referred to as Lingzhi mushrooms.

Red Reishi Mushrooms have a vibrant flat, red-varnished cap with a shape similar to a kidney or clamshell, featuring white or brown pores on the underside. These soft and corky mushrooms have a long history and unique appearance. Due to the wide range of red reishi health benefits, red reishi mushroom has been a staple in eastern medicine for many years. Years of study has determined various red reishi benefits including respiratory, immune, and cardiovascular benefits.

 Ganoderma lucidum Benefits

    • May help promote respiratory health
    • May help support cognitive health
    • May help promote healthy immune system response
    • May help support cardiovascular function

Function and Constituents of Red Reishi Mushroom Extract

Red Reishi Mushroom uses span many areas of health. Studies have shown that Red Reishi benefits can be credited to several compounds. For one, the Ganoderma lucidum mushroom synthesizes ganoderic acids which share similar molecular structure to steroids. Other compounds include polysaccharides, notably beta-glucans, coumarin, mannitol, and alkaloids.

All these compounds have been found to provide various Red Reishi health benefits individually. Red Reishi Mushroom also contains fungal immunomodulatory proteins (FIPs), which help support the immune system by stimulating certain cells and components that facilitate the immune response.

What is 8:1 extract?

We offer both a 1:1 and 8:1 extract of Red Reishi mushroom powder. The 1:1 Red Reishi mushroom extract powder is mixed with hot water to break down the chitin. Chitin is what makes up the red reishi cell walls. Breaking down chitin makes the red reishi mushroom powder more bioavailable. Additionally, none of the starting material is discarded, making the Red reishi 1:1 extract a full spectrum red reishi mushroom extract powder that is high in beta glucans. Red reishi mushroom also contains triterpenoids which tend to carry more immune-modulating and cognitive promoting benefits. Triterpenoids are ethanol soluble while the beta glucans are not. Our red reishi 8:1 extract uses an ethanol extraction method to create a highly potent triterpenoid red reishi mushroom extract powder.

We start with a 16:1 red reishi extract which carries some of the highest triterpenoid levels possible. Yet, since beta glucans are not soluble in ethanol we see lower beta glucan levels with a 16:1 red reishi mushroom extract. To get the best of both worlds, we mixed the 16:1 red reishi mushroom extract powder with the 1:1 red reishi mushroom extract powder to add beta glucans back in, creating a red reishi 8:1 extract. The best part about the 8:1 red reishi mushroom extract is the high beta glucan levels AND high triterpenoid levels.

This means that the 8:1 red reishi extract is more likely to have more immune system and cognitive promoting benefits. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the 8:1 red reishi extract has more calming effects whereas the calming effects in the 1:1 red reishi extract are less intense. This makes the 8:1 extract the best option for those looking for a good balance of general red reishi health benefits and cognitive benefits.

Beta-Glucan (β-Glucan) minimum content: 20%

Contains Triterpenoids

Red Reishi Mushroom Dosage

As a dietary supplement, take 1000mg of Red Reishi 8:1 Mushroom Extract once daily.

    Fantastic mushroom extract!!

    Really excellent stuff. Quality is on point as with all ND's mushroom extracts I have ordered in the past (Lion's Mane regular, Cordyceps regular & 8:1).

    Tried this for skin health. Have been taking 1 to 2 g, 2-3 times per day for about two weeks now. I notice a very natural calm and clear-heading feeling after I take it, and my skin health has improved significantly even after cutting back severely on my topical Rx medicine. It also seems to ease my joint pain and stiffness.

    I like to mix 1 g each of this and ND's Lion's Mane 8:1 into my bulletproof coffee in the morning - makes morning college classes a breeze. Would sincerely recommend this to almost anyone.

    Thank you ND!!!!! :)

    Good

    I was using the 4:1 for sometime until this 8:1 was released. So far so good but my only complaint is that its such a strong taste with the 8:1 its hard to enjoy it with my morning coffee compared to how well the 4:1 sat with my coffee. I have mostly been putting in capsules when I dose now.

    Cure for the Common Cold

    Having knowledge of medicinal mushrooms, I bought this because of a common (albeit violent) cold. I could have chosen from many sources but trust NootropicsDepot for many reasons. I can accurately state the following: I started this product for the "common cold" at 5 days after symptoms presented. Within 2 days symptoms were reduced significantly and pathogenic phlegm was being expelled at an accelerated rate. Within 4 days only mild symptoms were present (mild bronchial and nasal discharge) and no malaise was present whatsoever. Within 7 days, symptoms were almost completely gone and I felt a general sense of revitalization. At approximately 10 days, most of my co-workers (who all had contracted this cold already) had a recurrance while I remained in remission.

    Very Good Concentrated Extract

    I love Nootropics Depot's 1:1 reishi powder. I use it daily, and like the high beta glucan content. I have started to use this more potent extract a couple times a week to get some triterpines. This extract is more bitter, as you would expect from a concentrated resihi extract. I find this 4:1 extract helps my allergies more than the 1:1. I like having the option of using the 1:1 for beta glucans, or the 4:1 for triterpenes.
