REISHI is considered a superior herb in Tradition Chinese Medicine and is perhaps the most revered of the mushrooms. Reishi is considered a potent Shen (Spirit) tonic and aptly named Ling Zhi 'The Mushroom of Spiritual Potency'.

Reishi is said to bring inner strength, peace of mind, balance as well as tonify the lungs and cardiovascular system. Reishi is also said to restore Qi, our vital energy reserves and thus support adrenal health. 

Reishi is a potent adaptogen that can play a part in reducing stress in our everyday and is a must have tonic herb for your home apothecary.

Extract Strength

16:1 (indicative) & 20%+ Beta-D-Glucan levels


Yes. Our Reishi Ultra is sourced using only certified organic ingredients. Our Brand will be certified in 2019.

Growth Substrate

Solid Oak Wood.

Why is this important? The growth substrate for Medicinal Mushrooms greatly alters the quantity of active medicinal compounds in the product. Solid Oak is a hardwood that Reishi is traditionally found on in the wild and is shown to yield high levels of medicinally active ingredients.

Part Used

100% Fruit Bodies.

Why is this important? The fruiting body of the mushroom contains the highest quantity of active medicinal compounds. Some manufacturers add the mushroom mycelium to the product as a filler, this is the root system of the mushroom (called hyphae) and has less medicinally active compounds. Our product is free from all fillers.


Jinzhai country, Anhui Province (Di Tao)

Our Reishi is grown in the mountainous highland provinces ofJinzhai country, Anhui Province. These areas are abundant in natural forest cover and fresh water sources, our Reishi farm is irrigated using natural Spring Water. Sourcing mushrooms from their native environment as we have done is also called Di Tao and is said to imbue greater potency to the herbs.
