Ingredients: Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum), Mushroom Substrate (brown rice & mycelium)
Our Reishi mushroom is grown and dried in Yarra Valley, Victoria. It is freeze-dried for maximum nutrient retention.
It comes to you as a powder form so it’s easy to make into tea or add into a smoothie.
The dried “mycelium” of Reishi the root-like body that produces mushrooms has been found to be highly effective in the treatment of neuroses caused by “environmental stress”. In addition, in an eight-month study of Alzheimer’s disease, patients taking a Reishi mycelium product demonstrated significant improvement

Immune System: Ganoderma lucidum contains high concentration of Polysaccharides and Triterpenes. These active components are proven to strengthen our immunity cells and improve our immune system

Healing the Liver: Reishi is used for the treatment of chronic hepatitis. Reishi extract has been reported to be
effective in treating patients with liver failure. In animal studies of mice with carbon tetrachloride-induced hepatitis, the extent of liver damage was significantly inhibited by continuous dosing with Reishi tincture and the regeneration of the liver was promoted

Cancer: Studies of Reishi proved to have an anti-tumor effect. The active anti-cancer constituents in Reishi are
called Beta-D-glucan. Beta-D-glucan is a polysaccharide basically a huge sugar molecule made up of many little
sugar molecules chained together bound to amino acids. These intricate sugars stimulate or modulate the immune system by activating immune cells such as macrophage and helper T-cells, as well as increase the immunoglobin levels to produce a heightened response to foreign cells, whether bacteria, viruses, or tumor cells
