Organic Reishi Powder (50g)
Our Organic Reishi powder is made from mushrooms we culture, grow, dual extract and freeze-dry on site offering you the freshest Reishi powder on the market. The majority of Reishi powder/capsules on offer are manufactured from dehydrated mushrooms. While dehydrating mushrooms to preserve them is an age-old tactic, around 20-30% of the medicinal benefits are lost when compared to fresh mushrooms during the dehydrating process. Freeze-drying preserves 99% of the mushrooms benefits offering a far superior product than anything else on sale currently in the UK. We harvest our mushrooms and freeze-dry them immediately offering you the freshest possible products.
So what is Organic Red Reishi powder and why would I need it?
The Reishi mushroom is a fungus that grows around the world. For many years, this fungus has been a staple in Eastern medicine. Within the mushroom, there are several molecules, including triterpenoids, polysaccharides and peptidoglycans, that may be responsible for its health effects.
One of the most important effects of the Reishi mushroom is that it can boost your immune system. While some details are still uncertain, test-tube studies have shown that Reishi can affect the genes in white blood cells, which are critical parts of your immune system. What’s more, these studies have found that some forms of Reishi may alter inflammation pathways in white blood cells.
Research in cancer patients has shown that some of the molecules found in the mushroom can increase the activity of a type of white blood cell called natural killer cells.
Another study found that Reishi can increase the number of other white blood cells (lymphocytes) in those with colorectal cancer. Although most immune system benefits of Reishi mushroom have been seen in those who are ill, some evidence has shown that it can help healthy people, too.
Overall, it is clear that Reishi impacts white blood cells and immune function. More research is needed to determine the extent of the benefits in the healthy and ill.
On top of Reishi’s immune-boosting properties, it’s also high in polysaccharides and beta-glucans making it a fantastic gut-healthy prebiotic. With so many health benefits, it is no wonder that this mushroom is now being touted as a super mushroom. Why wouldn’t you want to include Organic Red Reishi powder as part of your healthy lifestyle?
