Reishi - The Mushroom of Immortality
Stress and Anxiety | Hormonal Balance | Antioxidant | Anti-Aging | Adaptogen
The most widely known and researched medicinal mushroom, used over millennia in the East for an unending list of health issues.
Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is called Ling Zhi in Chinese literally meaning the Herb of Spiritual Potency. Reishi is the mushroom with the most versatile health applications owing to its unique polysaccharide ß-D Glucan, GLPS, triterpine, and ganoderic acid components.
Lion’s Mane - The Smart Mushroom
Brain Health | Memory & Cognition | Nervous System Support | Clarity & Focus
Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) has been dubbed the world’s first Smart Mushroom by fungi expert Paul Stamets for its brain enhancement properties. It not only looks like a brainy mass of neurons, but it contains unique properties called Neurotrophic Factors that stimulate the regrowth of damaged brain and peripheral nerve tissue.
Lion’s Mane is renowned for its special therapeutic qualities in conditions of dementia and cognitive impairment, memory loss, multiple sclerosis, nerve damage and more. That’s just the beginning…
Chaga - The King of Antioxidants
Antioxidant | Anti-Aging | Immune Support | DNA Protection | Anti-Fatigue
Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is a must-have for any immune boosting and anti-aging health protocols. It stands in a class of its own among the medicinal mushrooms and may be one of the most important anti-aging foods yet discovered. This is due to its extremely high ORAC value (antioxidant properties), similar to that of blueberry extracts.
This immune boosting powerhouse is wild crafted from living birch trees and its health benefits are due the presence of active compounds including melanin, betulin, betulinic acid, triterpenes and non-linear complex polysaccharides.
Turkey Tail - Cloud Mushrooms
Immune Support | Prebiotic & Microbiome Support | Digestion | Anti-viral
Trametes versicolor is known in Japanese as Kawaritake or Cloud Mushrooms and its concentric rings evoke symbology of health, spiritual essence and timelessness. Its two unique polysaccharides PSK and Polysaccharopeptide (PSP) have been the subject of cancer research involving activation of the immune system to better fight cancer.
With a rich tradition of indigenous use especially in North America, Turkey Tail demonstrates a unique “host versus tumor” effect and diverse health benefits for building and maintaining bone density, for gastrointestinal health and DNA protection from radiation.
Cordyceps - Power and Vitality
Libido & Sexual Vitality | Autoimmune Support | Energy & Performance
Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis) is considered by many herbalists to one of the most powerful of all tonic herbs. First utilized among Tibetan herdsmen, it is now essential in Chinese herbalism and the Taoist traditions to treat a wide range of human ailments, increase vitality and improve sexual function.
Its capacity to increase cellular utilization and absorption of oxygen has profound effects in physical performance, stress and fatigue, and libido restoration. Cordyceps is the quintessential Yin and Yang harmonizing adaptogen.
