THE MUSHROOM GLYCERITES
Over the last few years it seems as though companies involved in producing mushroom supplements have been engaged in an “arms race” of sorts, with each company trying to outdo the other in terms of how many beta-glucans or other of the important constituents of mushrooms end up in their supplements. The problem with this “pharmaceutical” approach to herbal extracts is that you end up with standardised or concentrated extracts that bear little similarity to the whole natural herb. You end up with a pharmaceutical!
This approach distracts us from the fact that these mushrooms have thousands of years of use; their reputations growing way beyond other herbs and medicines. Reishi for example, has been practically worshipped thanks to its reliability and effectiveness. All this incredible history was not based on pharmaceutical extraction or concentrating and isolating active components…it was based on simply making tea from them! Boiling them in water, simple hot water extraction.
So, what we have done with our extracts is to take a step back in time, to traditional methods using whole mushroom fruiting bodies cultivated on organic substrate. Our mushrooms are extracted by the traditional hot water extract and then mixed into a base of vegetable glycerine. Deliberately moving away from pharmaceutically manipulated extracts and back to whole, food state mushroom extracts, as it was done for centuries.
“Herb of Immortality”
If there was a top ten of the most famous herbs of all time Reishi would be at number one. Reishi has the longest written history of any of the medicinal mushrooms, but also one of the longest
documented uses of any herb, with over 2000 years of recorded use. This mushroom has literally been worth its weight in gold in the past. The Ganoderma lucidum strain CGMCC5.0026 has had
both its genome and its mitochondrial genome mapped such is its commercial and pharmaceutical significance. Scientists want to know how this mushroom makes all these interesting chemicals! There are over 270 patents on Ganoderma products and processes, and the world-wide market is now worth hundreds of millions of US dollars based on the production of hundreds of thousands of tonnes.
Traditionally, Reishi was used to replenish chi/Qi, the life-force, and to promote long life and energy levels. The ultimate tonic herb, used to treat all manner of serious and degenerative disorders.
Chinese legend says that if you take Reishi every day, you will live for ever! Research has shown that the effects of Reishi are due to two main classes of compounds, the beta-glucans with their well-known immune system modulating activity, and the triterpenes, which have also been shown to have a wide range of positive effects such as an anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy effects.
In summary, Reishi is a great every day boost for the immune system but can also been called upon in serious situations. Reishi is a bracket fungus in the wild, growing from tree trunks and getting its nutrients from the tree.
Our Reishi is grown on wood logs in order to replicate the natural habitat.
