The Reishi mushroom is a red woody fungus that tends to grow predominantly on hardwoods. The mushroom is commonly known as the mushroom of immortality, as it has been used for many millennia in Chinese medicine to various diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and insomnia [1, 2]. In China the Reishi mushroom is regarded as a symbol of health, longevity, success and divine power .
Unlike some of the Reishi mushroom’s counterparts such as Lion’s mane or Shiitake mushroom, it is not famous for its edibility and taste but rather its pharmaceutical properties . That is why it is commonly taken as a liquid extract.
The simple and clean method of extracting the beneficial bioactive compounds from mushrooms in alcohol, to create a liquid extract, is still applicable today. As is the effortless way of incorporating these mushroom extracts into your day to day life. This Reishi mushroom liquid extract makes the bioactive compounds within the mushroom readily available to you, so you can take it easy.
The bioactive constituents that have been found to hold medicinal properties within the Reishi mushroom are mainly Lanostane-type triterpinoids and polysaccharides such as beta-glucans. These are considered as potent agents for enhancing the immune system, as well as having high antioxidant and anti-microbial capacities [1, 3].
The mushroom is also well known for its beneficial effects on sleep and relaxation. When consumed, the mushroom shows to have hypnotic/sedative type effects, which can decrease sleep latency (time taken to fall asleep) and may increase overall sleeping time, which explains why the mushroom has also been used to treat restlessness, palpitation and insomnia in China for hundreds of years [4, 5].
