Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum, lingzhi mushroom) is a wood-decaying mushroom from the Polyporaceae family. We mostly find it on trunks of dead trees or stumps. Its sporocarps are semi-circular and usually have the diameter of 6−12 cm and they have a glossy lacquer layer, from which the mushroom’s Czech name (lesklokorka) is derived.
Reishi (ganoderma) has its home in Asia where it’s also called the”divine mushroom of immortality”. It’s an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine, which has been using it for more than 4,000 years. Reishi (ganoderma) is also mentioned in the basic work of Chinese medicine, in the Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor. It was so rare in those times that it was intended only for the emperor and his family. And it wasn’t only used in Chinese medicine, but also as a powerful talisman for happiness and protection from all evil. Monks in Taoist monasteries used Reishi (ganoderma) before meditation, for its ability to soothe the soul of Shen. It’s also used by Russian astronauts or Sherpas in the high Himalayan altitudes for its ability to regenerate and activate functions of the organism.
Reishi can activate immune responses and it contributes to maintaining a healthycirculatory system. At the same time, it helps toreduce cholesterol levels naturally. Reishi contains many bioactive substances, which make it unique. Reishi, besides vitamins, minerals, also includes a great amount of polysaccharides, beta glucans, ganoderans, and also steroids, cyclic esters – lactones, triterpenes, including ganoderic acid or lanostans, etc. We use 6-9 months old sporocarps for our production, as the concentration of active ingredients is at its highest at this age. In older mushrooms, the concentration of active ingredients is gradually decreasing and the effect is less efficient.
