Default The best medicinal mushroom supplement is


David Avocado Wolfe's 24 raw freeze dried medicinal mushroom powder from Longevity Warehouse. The product contains substrate, mycelium, and fruiting body. Costs between 30 to 40 cents per gram depending on quantity. Poor peasants like me and Janet do not purchase that. Instead we like Om consisting of substrate and raw mycelium for the low low price of 15 cents per gram. Medicinal mushrooms grown from China are grown in enclosures where the air and water are filtered. The substrate is organic. They are tested for purity and potency.

I have firsthand experience and knowledge with reishi mushroom extract. You can study reishi articles yourself from Pubmed.com for example. Red reishi (Ganoderma Lucidum) is very intresting and potential nutritional supplement for many different things. It is a tree mushroom (grows on dead trees) and probably transforms some of trees superp ingredients to human edible form. Same kind of mushroom is Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus). Reishi has very high or highest meaning in TCM (traditional chinese medicine). TCM considers reishi as the king mushroom of immortality. Wild reishi grows usually on stump of a leafy tree. I have taken reishi extract supplements and made my own chaga extracts. These extracts are very safe but shouldn't be unerestimated. There are at least 7 herbal components in reishi such as germanium(known very good antioxidant), polysaccharides(gives long lasting energy), triterpene, Linghzi L Z 8, nucleosides and enzymes(aids digestion). It even contains a form of steroids but don't worry these steroids are not harmful or doping. Many atheletes have used reishi, chaga and cordyceps which is also potential supplement for exercicing. The beneficial effect of Reishi is probably multifactoral. I suggest that if you want to use reishi, start slowly (400mg) and increase the dosage as your body adopts to the ingredients. Just don't go higher than 1500mg per day although I haven't heard problems of Reishi overdose. If you use medication of some sort beware that reishi might have some sort complications with immunosuppressive drugs or lowering blood pressure drugs although people some studies have shown that reishi has improved in some cases therapetically the condition of people tkaing immunosuppressive and lovering blood pressure (Check Pubmed). Most importantly listen to your body! Regularly it takes a week or ten days for body to adobt for Reishi so be patient the stuff usually delivers

Best products of Reishi are probably made by japanese goverment approved Reishi farmers. But I wouldn't buy right know from Japan because its difficult due to language problems and they just had a powerplant accident which may have impacted their reishi harvest. I have used Mushroom Science Reishi and Chaga and also New Chapters Reishi that I have bought from Iherb.com. If you haven't ordered from Iherb before you can use my coupon code EXI747 and you get 5 dollars of from the deal

iherb.com/Mushroom-Science-Reishi-Super-Strength-400-mg-90-Veggie-Caps/16425

iherb.com/New-Chapter-Organics-LifeShield-Reishi-60-Vcaps/22650

You can find more information of these products from the companies websites: NewChapter.com and MushroomScience.com

Beware that some companies make Reishi that is bad quality. Always buy good quality Reishi or don't buy at all.

I have found that Reishi keeps me sleeping better and I can recover faster to workouts. It keeps me more calm and it is a wonderful aid in my life busy life. Highly recommend. You can boost Reishi by taking it with good quality vitamin C (250-500mg).

Chaga gives nice stable energy due the day. Don't take Chaga in evening because it can keep you wake.

You can also go and collect your own Reishi (from forest that is not near of pollution) if can recognise the mushroom or can get help from someone who knows the mushroom for sure. Then you can make your own Reishi extracts. I would boil Reishi for couple of hours in water.

Hope this information was useful.

Thanks for sharing.

Reishi is a great adaptogen. Also it acts similarly to Finasteride (Propecia) in that it slows the conversion of DHT. So, many think that it has the ability to strengthen the hair follicles. Keep hair from falling out to quickly. Grow new hair?

One has to remember that these herbs/mushrooms do take time to work well. Also, as you said, try to find quality manufacturers. I prefer cracked cell to "extract". I prefer as little processing as possible. I don't know if it makes a difference. Just my preference. Extract means a heated water process, I think.

Reishi is the number one longevity food for centuries. Truly fascinating.
