The Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma Lucidum) is one of the most revered herbs known. Now known as Ling zhi in China, there are references to its use in that country as far back as 100 B.C., where it was referred to as the "Herb of Spiritual Potency" and the "Ten-thousand Year Mushroom". Our mushrooms are cultivated exclusively on wood with a hot water method and certified organic, just the way nature intended. Wood-grown mushrooms are known to produce the richest and most potent full-spectrum extracts available.
Birkdale Medicinals also uses a two-step extraction process; first hot water extraction to extract the polysaccharides that contain the beta glucans, and then a second step using hot water to extract the triterpenes, guaranteeing that we capture all the active compounds needed to deliver the health benefits Reishi is famous for. This very difficult extraction process we use, which is absolutely essential when making a therapeutically effective extract, may be why Birkdale Medicinals is the only mushroom company in North America that lists guaranteed levels of active compounds on the label of every mushroom extract supplement we sell.
