REISHI - Ganoderma Lucidum
Reishi is the most well-known medicinal mushroom. It only grows in Asia and is a wood decaying polypore fungus, meaning it uses pores instead of gills to spread its spores. It has been used for centuries in traditional Eastern medicine, with mentions of its use found in scriptures and books from the Han dynasty, dating back to i.e. 25-220 AD. In China Reishi is called ‘the spirit mushroom’ and in Japan ‘the mushroom of immortality’. It is said that Reishi nourishes our physical body as well as our spiritual body or ‘shen’, the Mandarin word for spirit.
The medicinal use of this mushroom wasn’t known in the Western world until the late 18th century. Still it took another 200 years before it became more widely known. Nowadays Reishi is being used all over the world by practitioners and people choosing a more natural approach to health care. Due to EU legislation it is not allowed to make claims about all the possible benefits of medicinal mushrooms, including reishi.
The mushroom extracts from Opus Mushrooms are selected for the highest quality ingredients. The extracts contain organic mushrooms and organic Yacon syrup for flavor. The Yacon syrup has a glycemic index of 1 and is therefore suitable for people with diabetes.
The Reishi, Lion's Mane and Cordyceps mushrooms are grown by organic growers. Turkey Tail and Chaga are picked in bio-controlled environments in nature. After the mushrooms are imported, they are immediately taken to an organic certified laboratory where they undergo various tests. The mushrooms are tested per batch for the content of heavy metals, mycontoxins, allergens or other ingredients that may cause intolerances or cross-contamination. The list of allergens that could cause possible side effects is included in Annex II of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 (scan label for more information).
