Organic Reishi Mushroom Powder



Revered in ancient Asian healing, Reishi mushrooms have been known for their medicinal properties for more than 7,000 years.  Modern medicine is now confirming that the immune boosting chemical compounds in our Reishi Mushroom Powder can ward off bacteria and viruses, as well as provide excellent cardiovascular support.

Revered for more then 7,000 years in Asia, medicinal mushrooms have long been a source of healing and wellness.  In Japan, the Reishi mushroom, also known as the “Herb of Good Fortune,” is used as a health tonic to strengthen the immune system and bring it back into balance.  The Chinese call the Reishi “Lingzhi,” and claim that it tonifies the three treasures, Jing, Qui, and Shen.  In China, Reishi mushrooms are prized for their ability to build resistance to illness, detox the body, and calm the nerves.

A Revered Immune System Booster
Our Reishi Mushroom Powder is abundant in enzymes, polysaccharides, and proteins, including beta-D-glucans, which give the immune system a powerful boost to help ward off foreign invaders. The chemical components in Reishi enhance the production of T-cells, helper T-cells, and natural killer cells, which provide defense for the body. Current research shows that Reishi mushrooms encourage the production of the tumor necrosis factor.

Modern medicine is showing that the Reishi mushroom has evident and positive healing properties. The polysaccharides in our Reishi Mushroom Powder aid the body in building the immune system and combating many allergies. Japanese doctors have prescribed Reishi mushrooms for the treatment of bronchitis and memory loss.

Cardio and Allover Health
Sterols and triterpenes in our Reishi Mushroom Powder are responsible for the mushroom’s capacity to lower elevated blood pressure and serum cholesterol levels. Reishi mushrooms also moderate the body’s inflammation response, and protect the liver and enhance its function.

Our Reishi Mushroom Powder offers great support for cardiovascular health. Reishi mushrooms are widely used in Asia to improve the cardio system, reducing excess fatty acids from the blood. Taken daily, Reishi mushrooms help to prevent hardening of the arteries, angina, and shortness of breath.

A Proprietary Growing Process Yields an Abundance of Nutrients
The mycelia of the Reishi Mushroom contain the greatest quality of polysaccharide compounds, so we use this part of the mushroom in our Reishi Mushroom powder. We grow and harvest only long-established and proven mushroom spores, which are cultivated in gluten-free substrates.

The highly nutritive matter that provides a food source for our Reishi Mushroom Powder is 100% pure, with no additives or fillers. Our Reishi mushrooms develop throughout a carefully monitored process, which ensures that the most beneficial components of the mushroom are intentionally free from heavy metals or toxins that are present in many mushroom varieties.

After harvesting, our Reishi mushrooms undergo a cold drying and cold milling technique that protects the heat-sensitive enzymes, and breaks down fibers in the soft walls of the mycelia to make them more digestible.

Our Reishi Mushroom powder is one of the first of it’s kind offered in the United States, and is of premium quality.

Try our Reishi Mushroom powder as a tea, mixed with vanilla and honey, or added to your favorite vegetable dishes and sauces. You may also stir our Reishi Mushroom Powder into water.

Storage Instructions

If cared for properly, our Reishi Mushroom Powder has a shelf life of two to three years. To preserve the freshness of this product:

  • Avoid exposure to heat. The powder will remain fresh if stored at room temperature or below.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
  • Squeeze all of the air out of the bag before sealing.
  • Seal the bag tightly after each use.
  • Store the powder in a dry place, and avoid all contact with moisture.


We package all of our superfood powders in all-natural brown kraft bags, each with a resealable zipper across the top. Each bag has a thin metal lining, which serves as a very effective barrier to light, oxygen, odors, flavors, moisture, and bacteria.

While printed plastic bags with clear windows may look beautiful, studies have shown that the toxins contained in the plastic are absorbed by food that is in direct contact with the plastic. Foods that are raw and all-natural, like superfood powders, are even more susceptible to this type of contamination than processed foods.
