Made using a combination of log-grown Ganoderma lucidum and wild harvested Ganoderma oregonese. Our tinctures are specifically designed to create the most bio-available medicinal mushroom product. We use different methods for different mushrooms. For Reishi and Chaga a proprietary 1:1 dual extraction method is used.
Ethanol Extraction: The first extraction is done by soaking ground Reishi fruit bodies (no myceliated grain) in 99% ethanol. After the extract is complete the Reishi is filtered out. The alcohol pulls out all of the beneficial triterpenes and alkaloids that are not water soluble.
Water Extraction: Using a fresh batch of Reishi fruit bodies (many companies use the spent Reishi from their alcohol extraction), a water extraction is done by simmering Reishi in warm water for 24 hours. The water extraction pulls out all of the water-soluble polysaccharides and immune boosting beta-glucans.
Reishi Benefits*: There are so many, we recommend you further research this mushroom because we are limited by the FDA on what we can say.
