Reishi tincture 50 ml – Ganoderma lucidum
Reishi mushrooms (Ganoderma lucidum) are polypore bracket fungi indigenous to Asian countries, including Laos, Vietnam, China and Japan. The mushroom is also known by its Chinese name lingzhi.
Reishi mushrooms grow either as parasitic or saprophytic organisms on living and/or fallen hardwood trees. Saprophytic organisms extract nutrients from decaying organic matter, which is why reishi mushrooms can be found on fallen trees. Over the course of its growth, the reishi mushroom will extract nutrients from the living or dead tree.
Once it reaches maturity it contains many phytochemicals (plant chemicals or nutrients), many of which are being investigated for their therapeutic value. Reishi mushroom tinctures contain high concentrations of these beneficial phytochemicals and are generally more convenient than dried powders.
