Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) extract (40% polysaccharides) contains active constituents that promote energy and stamina.

This beautiful saucer-shaped, deep-red mushroom thrives in both temperate and tropical environments. In the wild, it’s habitat-specific to the base of hardwood trees. Our red reishi is sustainability cultivated in fully shaded greenhouses to maximum potency and purity.

New Roots Herbal’s Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum; ling zhi in Chinese) is a hot water–extracted medicinal mushroom formula standardized to contain 40% polysaccharides (500 mg per capsule) providing 30% beta-glucans. Hot-water extraction is critical in obtaining a high-quality and effective mushroom product, and is the traditional Asian method of extraction. In the whole mushroom, polysaccharides are bound by indigestible cell wall comprised of chitin; chitin must be dissolved through hot water in order to gently release the medicinal components, the mushroom polysaccharides. Conversely, grinding the mushroom may cause damage to the long-chain polysaccharides and fails to remove the indigestible chitin (fibre), limiting the amount of therapeutic constituents that can be fit per capsule. Standardization ensures that the final product contains a consistent amount of polysaccharides to allow delivery of a therapeutic dose.

Active constituents found in reishi, including triterpenes and polysaccharides, boast many benefits. Increased energy and stamina make reishi an ally for an active life.
