Reishi Mushroom Extract
Reishi Mushrooms are one of the most revered herbs in traditional Chinese Medicine. Reishi, known as “Ling Zhi” in China, was referred to as the “herb of spiritual potency” and the “ten thousand year mushroom.” References to reishi extract’s use go back as far as 100 B.C.
The Reishi extract is made exclusively from wood grown fruit bodies and is a combination of both hot water and ethanol extractions. The benefits of reishi mushrooms were historically well known. Reishi's are also beneficial for people suffering from asthma and other respiratory conditions because it seems to have a healing effect on the lungs. They are good for building respiratory strength and curbing a cough. They can help support health in your heart as well as being an anti-inflammatory while also supporting joints, mind and a healthy blood pressure.
Scientists have learned one active ingredient is polysaccharides, which contain beta glucan. Beta glucan is known for its ability to enhance the immune system – in fact, it is one of the strongest immune system supplements there is. Another ingredient in reishi is triterpenes. The type found in Reishi Mushrooms is a ganoderic acid that has been proven in studies to ease the symptoms of allergies by stopping the release of histamines. It also can improve the body’s use of oxygen and help the liver function better.

The Components of Reishi
Scientists have learned one active ingredient is polysaccharides, which contain beta glucan. Beta glucan is known for its ability to enhance the immune system – in fact, it is one of the strongest immune system supplements there is. Another ingredient in reishi is triterpenes. The type found in reishi mushrooms is a ganoderic acid that has been proven in studies to ease the symptoms of allergies by stopping the release of histamines. It also can improve the body’s use of oxygen and help the liver function better.
The benefits of reishi mushrooms are so well known and proven that you can get them in forms that are much convenient than slicing them up and cooking with them. You can buy them dried, as a Tincture - Extract (such as here) or ground into powder (See related products). In any of these forms reishi mushrooms can be used as a dietary supplement.
Antioxidants... These mushrooms are very strong antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the body from the negative effects of free radicals that are formed inside the body through daily exposure to the sun, chemicals, and pollutants. Reishis are proven to boost the immune system, especially when taken with other antioxidant supplements.
Respiratory... Reishis are also beneficial for people suffering from asthma and other respiratory conditions because it seems to have a healing effect on the lungs. They are good for building respiratory strength and curbing a cough.
Anti-inflammatory... Reishi mushrooms have anti-inflammatory properties and are therefore used sometimes for patients who have Alzheimer’s and heart disease. This is based on the idea that inflammation plays a part in each of these conditions. The pain that accompanies other inflammatory conditions like neuralgia and arthritis may also be lessened by reishi mushroom supplements.
Heart Health... As far as benefits for the heart, reishi mushrooms can improve the flow of blood to the heart and reduce the amount of oxygen the heart consumes. It can help to lower cholesterol and some of the ingredients may help combat high blood pressure.
Nourishing the Lungs
As we have mentioned, Reishi has been used in TCM for thousands of years for its many health benefits, but perhaps right at the top is its ability to support healthy lungs. Traditionally, Reishi mushroom has been used to stop cough and wheezing and disperse phlegm, in addition to strengthening the body and calming the mind.
Research has demonstrated Reishi to address a wide range of respiratory issues. For starters, it can increase the alveoli’s ability to absorb oxygen, as well as reduce the cough reflex for people suffering from bronchitis.
Considered a natural antihistamine, this miraculous mushroom is also used for its immune balancing and adaptogenic properties that help your body respond appropriately to environmental irritants like dust and mold.
It also has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties (does that mean you can call it a “great anti”?).
When it comes to overall well-being, great respiratory health is a must. Eating wholesome foods, exercising regularly, getting quality sleep, dealing with stress, and taking Reishi will help give you a healthy respiratory system, allowing you to breathe easier for many years to come.
Ancient Purity - Bringing Reishi in all forms
Ancient Purity offer Reishi Mushroom in Multiple forms... The Tincture Extract (presented here) Ground Powder and we also offer Dried Slices so you can make your own Reishi Tea. (See these products below in related products).
So which one is best for you? Well... Tincture could arguably be the stronger form, however an alcohol tincture although potent may damage some parts of the Mushroom during the process, so its good but not perfect.
The Powder is the easiest to use (simply add to a smoothie or water) its dreid and ground, yet not as potent.
The slices are really to be used in tea or can be ground into a smoothie, they are dry, pure and not processed in any way. Again not as potent, so its worth considering how urgent you need the benefit of Reishi.
If you've found Ancient Purity you're likely going to live a very long time, so why not try all of them.
