Reishi Main Uses

1. Allergies

2. Liver Disease 

3. Insomnia 

4. Anxiety 

 

1. Allergies

 

Reishi contains steroid-like anti-inflammatory compounds that inhibit inflammation and histamine, the chemical responsible for allergic symptoms such as runny nose, watery eyes, hives and bronchial constriction.

 

The main compound responsible for Reishis allergy assistance, are the Triterpenoids found in it. The Triterpenoids are capable of lowering allergic reactions due to the way they affect the immune system, strengthen the digestive organs, protect the gut lining, lower inflammation, inhibit a histamine release, improve oxygen utilization and improve liver functions.

 

2. Liver Disease 

 

The fruiting Body of Reishi has long been a popular traditional treatment for liver disease.

 

A 2013 study published in the International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms found that Reishi induces hepatoprotective effects on acute liver injury because it contains antioxidant properties and fights harmful immune responses that slow down liver function.

 

3. Insomnia

 

The combination of effects on both gut health and stress and anxiety contributes to a much better night's sleep. Stress is one of the most significant factors affecting how well we sleep. Drinking Reishi before bed is a great way to relax and unwind.

 

It's also believed that the terpenoid compounds in Reishi help soothe the nerves and promote a sedative action that can positively affect neurasthenia and insomnia.

 

5. Anxiety

 

Reishi has shown incredible results in assisting with Anxiety related symptoms. These effects have been tied back to the polysaccharides and triterpenoid compounds found in Reishi.

 

Interesting Studies 

 

A study examined Reishi’s effects in 132 people with neurasthenia, a condition associated with aches, pains, dizziness, headaches, and irritability. The researchers found that after 8 weeks of taking the supplement, fatigue was reduced and well-being was improved. 

 

A further study, in a group of 48 breast cancer survivors, found that after 4 weeks of using Reishi powder, fatigue was reduced and quality of life was improved. 

 

A further study of 132 people with neurasthenia found a significant reduction in fatigue and improvement in overall wellbeing after using a Reishi supplement for 8 weeks. 

 

*Neurasthenia is a condition associated with depression, anxiety or emotional stress.

What is the % of Polysaccharides?

 

Our Reishi contains 50% polysaccharides. 

 

What does the Fruiting body or Mycelium mean in the context of Reishi? 

 

A fruiting body is generally what you would visually recognize as a mushroom. It is fleshy, contains spores, and grows above ground or directly on the surface of its host, like a tree or old log. The mushroom's fruiting body comprises of a stem, cap, and gills, which are what the general populace would eat in a culinary dish, but in nature, it acts primarily as the reproductive component of a fungal system, dispersing spores and inoculating hosts. 

 

Mycelium is the main body and feeding membrane of a mushroom. It grows underground or within the host plant. While it might not look like much, the mycelium acts much like a complex network that can communicate with and adapt to its surrounding environment. Think of it like the roots of the mushrooms. 

 

Which one is better Mycelium or the Fruiting body? 

 

Fruiting bodies are considered “full spectrum” as they provide a wider array of the mushroom’s nutritional components. Fruiting bodies offer more minerals, including phosphorous, copper, zinc, and potassium. Fruiting body extracts also contain higher concentrations of vitamins, including vitamin C, vitamin D, beta-carotene, and various B vitamins. 

 

Mycelium, on the other hand, was primarily created as a “cheaper” alternative that was quicker to produce. Mycelium unfortunately contains very little of the important compounds, vitamins, and nutrients of the actual mushroom. 

 

Furthermore, mycelium is not allowed to be considered a mushroom by the FDA, but many companies in the mushroom extract industry will hide this with clever labels.

 

Which one is Antioxi's made up of? 

 

The product is a 100% fruiting body extract. The extract provides a concentrated form of the glyconutrients and healthy components present in Reishi. The fruiting body is where the magic is. 

 

What is difference between Reishi powder and Reishi Extract? 

 

An extract is a preparation that results from taking raw plant material and applying a solvent to it, such as water or alcohol. The solvent causes the dissolvable compounds to be separated from the structural part of the plant or mushroom. Extracts contain high levels of the active ingredient a particular herb or mushroom is known for. 

 

Another advantage of extracts over raw herbs is higher bioavailability – a fancy term that means they are easier for the body to absorb and use. 

 

What are the different extraction methods? 

 

Currently there are 3 methods of extracting said nutrients: Water, Alcohol and Dual (both). 

 

A hot water extract is exactly what it sounds like – using hot water to dissolve water-soluble ingredients from raw herbs or mushrooms. The same process is undergone for Alcohol extraction where the water is substituted for alcohol. In some cases, it may be beneficial to use both water and alcohol extraction – a method referred to as a dual or double extraction. 

 

Which extraction method is better? 

 

When shopping around for mushroom supplements, it is beneficial to know what kind of extraction method is used for your specific product. This will ensure that you are getting a high-quality supplement that actually works. 

 

If you are looking for a Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Shiitake, or Maitake mushroom product, you should look for a hot water extract product. This is because their most important active ingredients – beta-glucans – are water-soluble. Using alcohol or dual extraction for these mushrooms is not desirable, because alcohol would cause some of the beta-glucans to solidify and be filtered out of the liquid. 

 

On the other hand, the Reishi and Chaga mushrooms benefit from dual extraction because they contain both water-soluble beta-glucans and alcohol-soluble terpenoids. 

 

Is it safe to consume during pregnancy? 

 

Generally speaking, if you are pregnant or trying to conceive, we recommend seeking medical advice before taking Reishi or any of our other products. 

 

Furthermore, to date, there has been no concerted investigation into the use of Reishi mushroom in pregnancy and lactation.
