Together with high levels of polysaccharides, Reishi contains over 100 triterpenoid compounds (ganoderic and lucidenic acids) which are responsible for many of its unique properties. Although Reishi is traditionally made into a tea (hot-water extract) these triterpenes are poorly water soluble but highly soluble in ethanol (alcohol).
MycoNutri Reishi therefore combines concentrated hot-water (polysaccharide-rich) and ethanolic (triterpene-rich) extracts of log-grown (Duan Wood) Ganoderma lucidum and is standardised to contain 30% polysaccharides and 3% triterpenes in order to deliver the full benefit of this most revered of mushrooms.
MycoNutri products are manufactured in the U.K. to EC food standards and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans (capsules are of plant origin). No additives are used and the products are dairy, gluten, maize and soya-free.
