Known as the “Mushroom of Immortality” in Chinese, Reishi has been used for thousands of years to promote vitality and long-term overall health. Reishi has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 4,000 years. The Chinese name lingzhi means “herb of spiritual potency.” A Japanese name for the reishi is mannentake, meaning “10,000-year-old mushroom.” Reishi’s use is documented in the oldest Chinese medical text, which is more than 2,000 years old.
Fresh Reishi is commonly harvested for use in teas, tinctures, and other extracts in order to unlock its value.
How our tinctures are made
Our mushroom tinctures are made by a dual extraction process: first the mushroom is soaked in pure grain alcohol for six weeks, shaken often, then strained. The mushroom is then simmered in water overnight to produce a double extract, which is then strained and then mixed in with the alcohol extract. Double extraction is necessary to extract the maximum amount of medicinal compounds in the mushroom since they contain some compounds which are soluble in water, and others that are soluble in alcohol.
We recommend taking between 1m-3ml, one to three times daily.
Tinctures are best mixed with fluid to dilute the concentrated flavor- add to tea, coffee, cocoa and other hot beverages (the heat will cause the alcohol to evaporate leaving the beneficial compounds in the cup for you to drink), add to smoothies, oatmeal, soups, salad dressing and anything else you would like.
