Description 

Botanical Name – Ganoderma lucidum 

Chinese Name – LING ZHI 

English Name – Reishi Mushroom 

Tincture made by a process of hydro-ethanolic percolation, with a ratio of 1 part Reishi Mushroom to 3 parts liquid. Liquid comprises of 75% water and 25% sugar beet derived ethanol.

The Reishi Mushroom is a polypore mushroom belonging to the genus Ganoderma. Its red-varnished, kidney-shaped cap gives it a distinct appearance. When fresh, the Reishi Mushroom is soft, cork-like, and flat. It lacks gills on its underside, and instead releases its spores via fine pores. Depending on the age of the mushroom, the pores on its underside may be white or brown. 

LING ZHI mushroom is used in traditional Chinese medicine. In nature, it grows at the base and stumps of deciduous trees, especially that of the maple. Only two or three out of 10,000 such aged trees will have LING ZHI Mushroom growth, and therefore its wild form is extremely rare. Today, it is effectively cultivated on hardwood logs or sawdust/woodchips.

Immunostimulant –The most widely recognised use for Ganoderma is as an Immune system booster. Studies have shown that Reishi can affect the genes in white blood cells. molecules found in the mushroom can increase the activity of a type of white blood cell called natural killer cells.
