Background information on reishi mushrooms
If you are interested in healthy living, then reishi mushrooms might be a great mushroom for you to learn about. Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum, Ganoderma tsugae) is well known in Asia, but this mushroom also grows here in the northeast. You can find it growing on hemlocks, often found near water. The mushrooms will begin forming in the spring and are at maximum potency for a summer harvest, once the mushroom has turned a beautiful red color.
We sell our reishi mushroom capsules and powder for those who don’t live in an area where reishi grows abundantly, and for those who simply cannot find the mushroom in the wild. Plus, since our supplement products are lab tested, you know exactly what is involved in the reishi mushroom capsules and powder. This way there is no guesswork, and no fear of getting contaminated mushrooms.
Why our reishi mushroom capsules contain the fruiting body extract and NOT mycelium grown on grain
Not all mushroom supplements are created equally, including a reishi supplement. To understand this we need to understand the fungal life cycle. The mushroom is the fruiting body of the fungus, which only comes out occasionally.
The mushroom fruits from “mycelium” -- a network of cells that are always present and usually out of sight. The mycelium is how fungi gather food, grow, and communicate with the surrounding environment. Mushrooms magically appear after heavy rain because the mycelium is always there and when the environment is just right, mushrooms pop out of the mycelial networks.
Confusingly, some mushroom supplements don’t use any mushrooms at all and instead they only use mycelium. When you look at the back of these supplements they will say at the bottom other ingredients like freeze-dried myceliated brown rice. These products are primarily not mushrooms and they mostly do not involve the mushroom fruiting body. Instead, they involve mycelium grown out on grain.
Traditionally the mushroom fruiting body has been consumed to support health. However, now that mushroom popularity has grown in the last 10 years, mycelium is now being used in supplements. Mycelium grown on grain has not been thoroughly researched but is economical and easy to scale for companies offering mushroom supplements. The choice to use mycelium on grain isn’t based on efficacy; it’s based on economics and it comes at a cost in quality.
One study on the topic was discussed in Powell’s book Medicinal Mushrooms: A Clinical Guide. Studies have shown that higher amounts of mushroom polysaccharides come from extracts of mushroom fruiting bodies, and not the mycelium on grain.
Understanding the benefits behind reishi mushrooms
One of the biggest reasons people use reishi mushroom powder is because of the reishi’s ability to support the immune system*. Studies have shown that polysaccharides found in reishi mushrooms may be able to modulate the immune system.
People also turn to reishi mushroom to support blood health*. In one study, athletes exposed to stressful conditions used reishi to improve the function of white blood cells*. Another study on reishi and white blood cells shows that reishi may alter inflammation pathways.
Reishi mushroom has also been seen to promote calmness, relaxation, and sleep in particular*. In fact, a study that involved mice and rats in a lab setting showed that sleep time, including non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep time increased*.
