Red Reishi

Ganoderma Lucidum

Red Reishi fruit  8.jpg

Reishi Mushrooms, or (Ganoderma Lucidum) has been used for thousands of years in China.  It was usually reserved for the wealthy because of its scarcity in the wild.  In ancient Chinese folklore, the Red Reishi strain was believed to grow in the gardens of the 3 Ancient Immortals and was thought to be a source of their power, thus gaining the name “The Mushroom of Immortality”.  Whereas every other medicinal mushroom was seen to benefit physical health aspects of the body and mind, the Red Reishi mushroom was the only medicinal mushroom believed to benefit the spiritual aspects of our being.


Due to its all-encompassing health benefits, Reishi has been the most used medicinal mushroom in history and has the oldest written texts documenting the effectiveness of this mushroom.  Still today it remains as one the most popular of medicinal mushrooms used as there are hundreds of acres of farmland dedicated to growing only the Red Reishi Strain.


What makes the Red Reishi so potent is the spores that they produce.  When properly collected, a grower can harvest as much spore weight as the mushroom itself.  The potency of the spores is a thousand times more than the mushroom itself.  We would need to consume one thousand pounds of the Reishi mushroom to get the same potency of consuming a single pound of spores! Here at Medicinal Mushrooms Hawaii, we take pride in our ability to collect the Reishi spores to include it in each of our bottles.

2. Immune Support:

Reishi mushrooms are rich in polysaccharides, beta-glucans, and other bioactive compounds that bolster the immune system. These potent immunomodulatory agents help regulate immune responses, enhancing the body's ability to fend off infections and diseases.


5. Antioxidant Defense:

Reishi mushrooms are potent sources of antioxidants, including triterpenoids, polysaccharides, and flavonoids. These antioxidants neutralize harmful free radicals, protecting cells from oxidative damage and supporting cellular health. Regular consumption of Reishi mushrooms may help slow down the aging process and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.


8.  Anticancer:

Reishi mushrooms contain bioactive compounds, such as polysaccharides and triterpenoids, which have demonstrated anticancer effects in preclinical studies. These compounds exhibit various mechanisms of action, including inhibition of tumor cell proliferation, induction of apoptosis (programmed cell death), and enhancement of the immune system's ability to target cancer cells. While more research is needed to fully understand the anticancer potential of Reishi mushrooms in humans, preliminary studies are promising and suggest that Reishi mushrooms may play a role in cancer prevention and adjunctive cancer therapy.
