What are the benefits of Wild Reishi?

Wild Reishi comprises of around 400 different biologically active constituents which have been proved to have several therapeutic properties to control various diseases.

Broad spectrum of its pharmacological actions have been established which include immunomodulation, radioprotective, anticancer, antidiabetic, antioxidant, antiatherosclerotic, antifibrotic, chemopreventive, antitumor, anticancer drug toxicity prevention, analgesic, anti inflammatory, antinociceptive, antimicrobial, hypolipidemic, hepatoprotective, antiandrogenic, antiangiogenic, antiherpetic, antiarthritic, antiosteoporotic, antiaging, antiallergenic, antiulcer properties and estrogenic activity. [1]

Wild Reishi contains:

- Polysaccharides
- Antioxidants
- Triterpenoids
- Peptides
- Enzymes
- Steroids
- Sterols
- Nucleotides
- Vitamins
- Minerals (copper, manganese, zinc, sulfur)
- Natural vitamin D

Why Wild? 

Wild plants are far superior to conventionally, and even organically grown ones. They have a much higher nutrient capacity. 

Why? Because they are grown in biodiverse territory that benefits from the symbiotic lives of both animals and plants, that extract and give nutrition to one another.

There is no interference of industrial pollution, human intervention, pesticides, fertilizer, contaminated water, and so forth. 

The end result is an amazingly pure, excellent addition to your health. 


Unique 'ultrasonic' extraction method:

Traditional solvent extraction using organic ethanol, mixed with cold water, high speed friction extract. The medicinal components of Reishi and other mushrooms include not only polysaccharides but proteins, sterols, SOD, and enzymes including catalase, peroxidase, RNAase, and DNAase, all of which are damaged or destroyed by temperatures above 180ºF. Instead of direct heat source exposure to liquid, we utilize high speed stirring at approximately 1,500 RPM for 48 hours to release and extract components using heat created by friction. This promotes molecular breakdown of chitin from cell walls while reducing any risk of medicinal compound damage from direct heat exposure.
