Reishi offers a wide range of health benefits

Reishi mushroom

(Ganoderma lucidum)

Reishi offers a wide range of health benefits, from improved sleep and enhanced immune system to increased mental clarity and focus.
Reishi mushrooms contain bioactive compounds such as polysaccharides, triterpenoids, and phenolic compounds. These compounds have been studied for their potential health benefits, including immune system support, antioxidant activity, and anti-cancer properties.

Grown with Care

We take great care in the growing conditions of our reishi mushrooms. Our partners at KÄÄPÄ Health grow them in real logs with passion in Karjalohja, Finland. They ensure it is of the highest quality by using the most advanced growing techniques available.

World-class “triple-extraction”

After the mushrooms are harvested, it is essential that the compounds of interest are extracted and made bioavailable. We only use reishi extracts that have been processed with ultrasonic-assisted extraction (UAE). It is a process that uses the help of high-frequency ultrasound waves in addition to hot water to break down cell walls and release the active compounds. UAE has been shown to be effective in extracting a higher concentration of bioactive compounds compared to traditional extraction methods.
