For those looking to buy ganoderma mushroom, there are a few things to know first. First off, Ganoderma tsugae and Ganoderma lucidum are the mushrooms often used. Both of these mushrooms are commonly known as reishi.
“Ganoderma” is Latin for “shiny skin”, so when you see these mushrooms, you can notice that it has a shiny appeal to it.
Gaoderma tsugae can be found growing in the northeast US, often close to water. The “tsugae” is based on the hemlock tree (Tsuga canadensis), and that's what it grows on. The reishi that we've seen the most medicinal studies from China is Ganoderma lucidum. This mushroom is technically a different species but in the same genus. It's not clear if there's a huge difference in the medicinal properties, although many of the compounds are going to be similar.
Reishi mushrooms have a long history of usage for thousands of years in Japan and in China, and are becoming more and more popular here in the US.
To access the healthful benefits of this mushroom you need to break down the chitin. You can do that either by extracting it in hot water or alcohol. The primary constituents that we're looking for with reishi are beta glucans, sterols and triterpenes. We provide reishi mushroom extract supplements in powder and capsule form so you can get the most from this wonderful mushroom. Our reishi powders and capsules contain 51% beta glucans in tests, so you can feel confident that you are getting the polysaccharides in high amounts. These supplements are certified organic, vegan, non-GMO, and are made with 100% reishi fruiting bodies and not just myceliated grains. Buy ganoderma mushroom supplements from us now!
Buy ganoderma mushroom spawn to grow your own at home.
You can grow your own reishi to reap the reishi benefits! Reishi is not typically eaten but it is used to make medicinal teas and tinctures. Other ways to grow reishi mushrooms include plug spawn, sawdust spawn, and grain spawn. The reishi spawn we provide is Ganoderma lucidum, which is best grown on sugar maple but will also do well on oak, red maples, and sweet gum trees. Here’s a quick rundown of the spawn type that would be best for you.
Reishi mushroom plug spawn: If you want to inoculate a few sugar maple logs on your property, then plug spawn would be your best bet.
Reishi mushroom sawdust spawn: Have any oak or red maple stumps on your property? You could easily turn them into totems with the use of some sawdust spawn. You can also use sawdust spawn for inoculating larger amounts of logs, or inoculating hardwood sawdust.
Reishi mushroom grain spawn: Interested in using supplemented hardwood sawdust indoors? Grain spawn is a great option for you.
Buy ganoderma mushroom in growing kit form for the easiest growing option around
Reishi mushrooms are not necessarily the first mushroom that comes to mind with home mushroom cultivation, but it is an option! Reishi can often be found in abundance in certain parts of the country, but they aren’t always found everywhere and not everyone has the ability to go foraging as desired. This is why reishi growing kits are available.
These kits will also grow differently from reishis in the wild. They will begin growing with an antler stage, so they look quite different from reishis you may have found out in the forest. This reishi mushroom growing kit begins with the antler phase and then the mushroom morphs from the antler shape to the conch shape during growth. Many times this happens when the mushroom is in a higher CO2 and lower light environment. If you have used the other growing kits we provide, then you will recognize this mushroom is growing very differently from the others. With one of our reishi growing kits you do not have to forage this wonderful mushroom to experience reishi benefits. This is perfect for those living in areas where it’s difficult to find reishi in the wild. It is also great for getting fresh reishi during the winter when the mushroom is past prime and not available fresh.
Buy ganoderma mushroom supplements or grow your own at home to support your mind and body
According to Herbal Medicine: Biomolecular and Clinical Aspects. 2nd edition, “Polysaccharides, peptidoglycans, and triterpenes are three major physiologically active constituents in G. lucidum”.
Polysaccharides that are unique to mushrooms and provide benefits are beta-glucans, specifically 1,3 1,6 beta-glucans. Alpha glucans are also polysaccharides but are not unique to mushrooms and do not provide the same benefits. After researching on the Healthcare Information Directory, one can find a few major benefits of polysaccharides from a health standpoint, including:
Supporting healthy blood sugar levels
Supporting cardiovascular health
Supporting the immune system
Supporting liver function
Supporting digestion and intestinal health
