Reishi Frequently Asked Questions

Which of your reishi products is the best one?


They all are great products. You can't find better Ganoderma Luciudm red reishi products on the market than the ones we carry. We carefully select the reishi we carry after extensive research, visit to the manufacturer sites, comprehend their cultivation and extraction methods and survey real benefits from customers. Usually, the higher the Polysaccharides concentration the better.  The most common and effective extraction method takes a more traditional approach of wood logs cultivation and hot water extraction. This method has been used for centuries resulting in very high grade red reishi essence extracts. We carry U.S and Japan made reishi.  Although there is a substantial difference in cost, the qualities are on par.  Japanese products are more expensive due to import fees and currency fluctuation.  These companies also spend a considerable budget for marketing and advertising.

So which one is best for you? We suggest to our new customers to try one reishi made in the U.S and then one from Japan. We recommend ProFormula and GanoPrime and then, any of the japanese brand. Take a first one for a month and evaluate it. Then take the second one for one month and assess the differences. Most of the time, the best one for you as an individual may be different from someone else. This is due to your own body's ability to react and heal from a specific brand of reishi. Lastly, the cost of the product must also enter into your decision. If you feel similar benefits from the products, then perhaps the lower cost one may do just as well.

What are the possible side effects?


We strongly encourage you to consult your physician before taking red reishi. Reishi may cause some rare mild side effects including dryness of the mouth, throat, and nasal area along with skin itchiness, upset stomach, nosebleed, muscle soreness, and diarrhea. If you experience any of these symptoms, stop using reishi immediately. The symptoms should slowly subside. Wait a week to 2 weeks before resuming your reishi intake at a lower dosage. If symptoms reappear, you may be extra sensitive to these rare side effects. Special precautions must be taken to those who take medications for high blood pressure or anticoagulant drugs as reishi may interfere with them. Pregnant women should avoid taking reishi.
