What is Reishi?
More common in warm temperate regions, Reishi is a mushroom that grows throughout the world, from the Amazon through the southern regions of North America and much of Asia. Ganoderma lucidum grows on oaks and other hardwoods, typically on dead or dying trees and tree stumps. Foodsporen® Reishi Capsules offer a pure, potent product. All Foodsporen® extracts are standardized to a remarkable 30% polysaccharides (PSP)
What is Reishi good for?
Reishi has been used in China and Japan for its health-invigorating effects for centuries. The use of Ganoderma lucidum spans more than 2,000 years. In China, Reishi is known as Lingzhi or the mushroom of immortality, indicating their belief Reishi plays a role in increased longevity and its potential to support other aspects of health.
Reishi is among the most well-studied functional mushrooms, a source of polysaccharide immunomodulators, especially beta-glucans. Polysaccharide-P (Polysaccharide-Peptide) supports the body’s immune defense system and immune response. Ganoderic acids (GA), a class of triterpenes found in Reishi, may contribute to heart and blood sugar health. Packed with beta-glucan polysaccharides, triterpenes and nutrients, Reishi has shown various important bioactivities including antioxidant, immunomodulator, antibacterial, anti-inflammation, and neuroprotective. Reishi supports overall health and energy levels.
Unfortunately, current EU legislation prohibits us from making claims that may suggest medicinal properties of mushrooms or herbs. Although traditional Chinese medicine has existed for thousands of years, has been tested on numerous patients and recognized for its immune support and overall health potential, we cannot mention effects confirmed by current scientific research. Instead, we refer you to the following detailed sources of information on mushrooms, available publicly online:

How long does it take for Foodsporen® Reishi to work?
If you’ve never taken Reishi, it could take up to three weeks to experience the potential immunomodulating and energy enhancing health benefits from Polysaccharide-P (PSP) and Ganoderic acids contained in Reishi.
What is the recommended dosage of Foodsporen® Reishi capsules?
Take 1 capsule 1 or 2 times daily. Do not take with carbonated beverages or medication. Take with food or on an empty stomach. Please consult your doctor or immunotherapy specialist before exceeding the recommended daily dose. Your doctor or immunotherapy specialist can ensure that Reishi and the dosage suit your needs.
What time of the day should I take Foodsporen® Reishi?
Consistency is more important than exact timing to unlock Reishi’s full immunomodulating potential. A regular daily dose helps maintain nutrient levels in your bloodstream at an optimal level. Add Foodsporen® Reishi to your daily routine to continually support your body’s immune defense system and energy levels.
What are the possible side effects of taking Reishi?
Functional mushroom products are generally considered safe for consumption. For most healthy individuals, Reishi mushroom extract is well tolerated for up to a year. If you have any questions or concerns, please consult your doctor or immunotherapy specialist before use. Common contraindications may apply if you have low blood pressure or certain bleeding disorders. If you are currently on medication (including drugs to slow blood-clotting, chemotherapy drugs and immunosuppressants), have surgery planned, have health or medical conditions, are pregnant or breastfeeding, we strongly advise you consult with your doctor or immunotherapy specials before incorporating Foodsporen® Reishi into your daily routine.
Do Foodsporen® Reishi capsules contain filler or mycelium on grain?
Foodsporen® only uses the fruiting bodies for each of its products. The products do not contain fillers or mycelium on grain. Foodsporen® Reishi capsules contain organic fruiting body extract with a 12:1 concentration. It took 12 grams of dried mushrooms to produce 1 gram of the extract used in this product. Thanks to the high concentration of Polysaccharide-Peptide (PSP) and Ganoderic acids (GA), you get the full immunomodulating potential of the Reishi mushroom.
Foodsporen® Triple Extraction Method
Foodsporen® utilizes a triple extraction method to harness the range of immune defense system benefits fully. When it comes to mushrooms, beneficial compounds are primarily soluble in alcohol (such as triterpenes and similar compounds) and in water (such as 1,3 1,6 beta-glucans). To create a balanced and potent product, Foodsporen® combines alcohol and water extraction with the ultrasonic sound frequency extraction technique. This triple extraction method follows strict scientific guidelines, utilizing optimal alcohol percentages, temperatures and extraction duration. Finally, in the case of powders and capsules, an evaporation process takes place. What you’re left with is a concentrated, alcohol-free mushroom extract. Foodsporen® offers high-quality products that align with their commitment to quality and effectiveness.
Where should I store Foodsporen® Reishi Capsules?
It is not necessary to store Foodsporen® products in the refrigerator. Products are packaged in high-quality MIRON violet glass. The packaging materials are designed to protect and preserve polysaccharide immunomodulators and other nutrients contained in the Reishi mushroom. Store away from direct sunlight at room temperature; there’s no need to worry about temperature fluctuations.
