Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi) is often referred as ‘the herb of immortality’ and ‘queen of mushrooms’ It is a superior medicinal mushroom, indeed. Chinese traditional medicine, consider it as ‘superior’ herb, meaning it has lots of therapeutic benefits. Nowadays modern science also confirms that Reishi mushroom has a lot to offer. We believe it is its popularity that led so many researchers to investigate Ganoderma lucidum’s active components.
Reishi Mushroom Extract-Why we are different
Into the wild Ganoderma lucidum grows on wood. So as much as clocer to the nature-better. Because we want to get rich in bioactive components mushroom extracts, the first thing is to get mushroom fruiting bodies. In addition they have to grow on wood log, Linden tree one (Reishi Queen’s favourite) . (More details for this topic – check out our youtube channel).
Most of the mushroom producers actually grow mushrooms on grain substrate due to the lower cost. This reflect the end result – low quality powders or extracts, also they are cheaper.
We use organic Reishi mushroom fruiting bodies entirely cultivated on sustainably harvested Duanwood (Linden tree).
Bioactive compounds in Reishi Queen Mushroom Extract
There are two main types of bioactive compounds in Reishi:
beta-D-glucans (type of polysaccharides)
triterpenes (aka triterpenoids).
The glucans may vary, depending on their structure. What is important to remember is that mushrooms grown predominantly on grain substrate are rich in alpha glucans, but mushrooms grown predominantly on wood substrate are rich in beta glucans. What science has proven as most potent for our immune system beta glucans are the 1-3, 1-6 beta-D-glucans.
beta-D-glucans are class of polysaccharides
polysaccharides may contain some beta-D-glucans, but not necessarily
it is the 1-3, 1-6 beta-D-glucans that have potent effect on our immune system
If a mushroom containing product has a statement on its label that it contains a certain percent of polysaccharides, that does not automatically mean these polysaccharides are made up of beta glucans. This is why it is crucial to know the difference and make sure you get products that contain the actual active ingredients you want.
Our organic Reishi mushroom extract powder comes with analytical data which proves its high content of bioactive ingredients.
The triterpenes in Ganoderma lucidum also come from the use of wood as a substrate. Hence if Reishi has been cultivated on grain it will have little or no triterpenes
