Indigo Herbs brings you this amazing and culturally significant fungus in its pure form so you can benefit from its most profound characteristics. We stock very high quality pure Reishi Mushroom Powder and a Reishi Tincture as these two are the most diverse ways in which one can incorporate this ingredient into a healthy diet. Join us in this long standing Eastern tradition and let this medicinal mushroom invigorate your daily life.

Being an entry in the worlds oldest medicinal medica under the name Ling Zhi ('herb of spiritual potency'), Reishi Mushroom has been helping the people of Asia throughout history. According to legend the Chinese Emperor Ti from the Chin dynasty ordered 300 soldiers and 300 hundred beautiful courtesans to set sail and bring the Reishi mushroom back to his kingdom. Because of the scarcity of this mushroom in the wild only the Emperor and affluent upper classes were able to benefit from its medicinal properties. This mushrooms cultural significance was so prevalent Reishi was rendered in many paintings and artwork throughout Asia.

Although the name comes from Japan, this mushroom can be found in the cold mountainous regions of China and Korea also. Preferring a natural habitat of damp shady forests the Reishi fungus grows at the base of deciduous hardwood trees where it comes in six different colours and varieties. These are red, purple, green, white, yellow, and black. It is generally held that the red varietal holds the most healing properties.

Hailing from the Lucidum (meaning 'shining') family of fungus, and having derived its generic name from two Greek words meaning 'bright skin' (ganos, derma), this mushroom is classed as almost being luminous in appearance. Another interesting property of this mushrooms anatomical composition is that it is classed as a polypore. This means that the body of the mushroom doesn't have any gills where the stalk meets the flat top of the fungus. This medicinal mushroom has a long traditional history of use in the east and is now gaining popularity and respect in the west.

Known to the ancients as "the Mushroom of Immortality", Reishi mushrooms have been used for medicinal purposes for at least 2,000 years. They enjoy a great reputation of promoting health, longevity & supporting the immune system due to the hundreds of biologically active molecules contained within these mycological heavyweights. One of these compounds is Ganoderma Lucidum Peptide which is thought to be responsible for its powerful antioxidant capacity, with polysaccharides & triterpenes targetting inflammation which in turn can bolster the immune system. Traditional Eastern Medicine attributes the success of reishi mushroom to its ability to "defend the equilibrium" and maintain balance in the body - there is now a growing body of research which appears to back this up! For thousands of years reishi has been used by monks, Taoist adepts & spiritual seekers throughout Asia in the belief that it helps to calm the mind, ease tension, strengthen the nerves & build willpower resulting in the attainment of wisdom - earning it the name of "the Mushroom of Spirtual Potency".

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

This powder can be added simply to water, fruit juice, smoothies or made into a hot tea.

High in Potassium

Potassium, the third most abundant mineral in the human body, is an essential mineral whose ions are vital for the functioning of all living cells!  Potassium plays a role at both the cellular and electrical level – considered and electrolyte because it carries a tiny electrical charge – it is found in red blood cells, muscles and bones.  Our bodies use potassium ions to conduct electrical impulses along muscle and nerve cells, it helps to boost the efficiency of nerve reflexes that transmit messages from one body part to another, this in turn helps in muscle contraction to perform various activities without tiring quickly. 

Potassium also has vasodilating properties that work to relieve the tension of blood vessels which is one of the main causes of high blood pressure.  It is helpful in reversing the role of sodium in unbalancing normal blood pressure thus acting as a vital component that maintains the normality of blood pressure in the human body.  The importance of potassium should not be underestimated in your dietary plan, most famously found in bananas other rich sources of potassium include spinach, avocados and coconut water.

Potassium contributes to:

·         normal functioning of the nervous system

·         normal muscle function

·         the maintenance of normal blood pressure

Protein

Source of Protein

Proteins are a group of biological compounds which are present in every live cell, organ and tissue of the body.  Meaning “first” or “of prime importance” in Greek, proteins participate in every cellular process occurring in the body.  Proteins are made up of structures called amino acids, there are a total of 21 amino acids, 9 are essential, the rest are nonessential – you must consume the essential amino acids in your diet because your body cannot make them. 

Dietary protein supports bone health in three main ways: by supplying the raw material required to construct soft bone matrix, by increasing plasma IGF1 and by promoting muscle growth and retention.  IGF1 is a growth hormone that stimulates and increases the activity of osteoblasts (cells which secrete the substance of bone).  It is especially important to ensure that children get enough protein since they are still developing and it is necessary to ensure their growth is unimpaired.  Proteins play an important role in muscle contraction and coordination, they are present in the muscle tissues in the form of many microfilaments and provide muscle structure.  Muscle growth depends on the adequacy of proteins in the body.  Proteins function as building blocks for muscles, bones and cartilage, opt for a variety of whole foods to meet your protein needs including; grass fed meat and poultry, eggs, dairy, seeds, beans and nuts.

Protein contributes to:

·         the maintenance of normal bones

·         a growth in muscle mass

·         the maintenance of muscle mass

·         Protein is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children.

Vitamin C

Source of Vitamin C

Vitamin C, a water soluble vitamin also known as ascorbic acid, is one of the safest and most effective vitamins whose benefits are many.  It is absolutely vital in collagen production – collagen is a simple protein and an essential part of our connective tissue – the very framework of our body.  All of the components that hold our bodies together such as skin, bones, blood vessels, teeth and gums, tendons and cartilage rely upon collagen.  Vitamin C is directly responsible for influencing collagen synthesis and helps to shield us from the symptoms of collagen deletion – most famously scurvy! 

A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C can protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals which are harmful by-products of digestion or foreign substances in the atmosphere.  Inside the body it changes form to a negatively charged compound called ascorbate which helps to protect nerve cells and improves psychological function.  It has been known as the antioxidant’s antioxidant because it functions to protect vitamin E from oxidation too, another vitamin that interacts with free radicals to prevent cell damage.  Vitamin C strongly enhances the absorption of iron - when they are consumed and digested together, vitamin C combines with the iron to form a compound that is more easily absorbed.  Crucial to the overall health of the body in its efforts to fight off infections – both bacterial and viral – white blood cells contain 20 times the amount of vitamin C than other cells and require constant replenishment to keep the immune system working to its optimum capacity, especially during and after intense physical exercise.    Whilst highly concentrated in citrus fruits, other rich sources of vitamin C are acerola cherries, leafy green vegetables, red peppers and potatoes.

Vitamin C contributes to:

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of gums

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of teeth

·         normal energy-yielding metabolism

·         normal functioning of the nervous system

·         normal psychological function

·         the normal function of the immune system

·         maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise

·         the protection of cells from oxidative stress

·         the reduction of tiredness and fatigue

·         the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E

·         Vitamin C increases iron absorption

Iron
more info...
Source of Iron

Iron is needed for a number of highly complex processes that continuously take place in the body on a molecular level and that are indispensable to human life.  Formation of haemoglobin is the chief function of this mineral – this is the primary protein found in red blood cells and represents about two thirds of the body’s iron.  Haemoglobin binds to the oxygen molecules that you breathe in from the air and releases them into your tissues.  The brain receives around 20% of the blood oxygen and a proper flow of blood to the brain can stimulate cognitive activity and help to create new neural pathways, it is especially important that children consume enough iron in their diet – iron deficiency in the first two years of a child’s life is associated with delayed cognitive and psychomotor development.  

Ribonucleic reductase is an iron dependant enzyme that is required for DNA synthesis (cell division), thus iron is required for a number of functions including healing and immune function - red blood cells are necessary for providing oxygen to damaged tissues, organs and cells.  Iron is also involved in food metabolism and is a cofactor and activator for some enzymes which play key roles in energy production and metabolism.  If iron stores are low symptoms can include tiredness, fatigue and dizziness.  Dietary iron has two forms, heme (animal based) and non-heme (plant based), important sources are; grass fed beef, oysters, spinach, lentils and beans.

Iron contributes to:

·         normal cognitive function

·         normal energy-yielding metabolism

·         normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin

·         normal oxygen transport in the body

·         normal function of the immune system

·         the reduction of tiredness and fatigue

·         normal cognitive development of children

·         Iron has a role in the process of cell division

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Reishi Mushroom Powder comes from the infamous Qingyuan county, otherwise known  as 'Mushroom City' in China. The grower of our Reishi is one of the most accomplished and technologically advanced cultivators of mushrooms in the world. Every aspect of the growth process is monitored from temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, light intensity, and nutrient uptake making sure that these mushrooms result in the very finest examples of Reishi. This particular supplier has been sending his products to the US and Europe for over 15 years and is trusted for their very top quality product. The process of growing the mushrooms involves using 30cm slats of steamed (sterilized) wood from the basswood tree being placed in plastic bags and the Reishi spores placed on top. These bags are then placed in a perfect warm moist environment where the spores can develop and grow across the basswood slat. After 4 months the spores have developed sufficiently enough that the slats can be planted under earth in a growing base where the temperature is maintained at 25°C. Over a period of about 3 months the mushrooms break ground and start to mature. Around August and October every year the Reishi Mushrooms are harvested to be selected for size, colour and quality. After this selection process the mushrooms are ready to be milled into a fine powder.

Side effects from Reishi can include dizziness, dry mouth and throat, nosebleeds, and abdominal upset. These rare effects may develop with continuous use over three to six months. Pregnant or breast-feeding women should consult a physician before taking Reishi.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Reishi Mushroom Herbal Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Serving:

Reishi Mushroom Herbal Tincture:
Traditionally Taken: 2-3 ml 2-3 times per day.
or as directed by a Herbal practitioner.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

Every aspect of the Reishi Mushrooms growth is monitored from temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, light intensity, and nutrient uptake making sure that these mushrooms result in the very finest examples of Reishi. The process of growing the mushrooms involves using 30cm slats of steamed (sterilized) wood from the basswood tree being placed in plastic bags with the Reishi spores placed on top. These bags are then placed in a perfect warm moist environment where the spores can develop and grow across the basswood slat. After 4 months the spores have developed sufficiently enough that the slats can be planted under earth in a growing medium where the temperature is maintained at 25°C. Over a period of about 3 months the mushrooms break ground and start to mature. Around August and October every year the Reishi Mushrooms are harvested to be selected for size. After inspection and drying the Reishi Mushrooms undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.

Side effects from Reishi can include dizziness, dry mouth and throat, nosebleeds, and abdominal upset. These rare effects may develop with continuous use over three to six months. Pregnant or breast-feeding women should consult a physician before taking Reishi.
