Reishi is one of the most scientifically researched herbs on the planet and is among the most powerful and “superior-class” adaptogens.
It has been over two thousand years since Reishi was first written about in Shennong’s Pharmacopeia, which is the very first Chinese herbal text. Reishi was classified at the forefront of the Superior Class herbs.
He wrote about how “continuous consumption of Reishi makes your body light and young, lengthens your life and turns you into one like the immortal who never dies.”
For this reason, Reishi has earned the title, “The Mushroom of Immortality,” and is one of the most treasured and sought after herb of all time - an icon for health, vitality, and longevity.
Reishi’s primary functions are to restore the bodies daily energy (Qi) in multiple organs. According to Chinese five elemental theory, the organ of the heart corresponds with the fire element which is considered the mother of earth in the elemental cycle.
This earth element corresponds with the spleen/stomach. In five elemental theory, when the mother (heart, fire) is nourished, the son (spleen/stomach, earth) flourishes. Thus, we can observe just one mechanism of how Reishi restores the digestive function.
In a similar vein, Reishi nourishes the lung or the metal element, which in turn nourishes the water or kidney element associated with jing, the deepest energy reservoir within the human body. Lastly, the wood or liver element is directly nourished by Reishi which, as the mother of fire (heart), only further supports the heart.
Our Duanwood Reishi is a potent, concentrated dual extract - not merely ground up raw mycelium. It has been 3rd party lab tested to contain 2% triterpenes and 12% polysaccharides. Hyperion Herbs' Duanwood Reishi is grown organically on hard wood - ensuring the utmost quality and purity.
Through our extraction process, the active constituents are extracted from our Organic Duanwood Reishi, and then concentrated to a 10 to 1 ratio. This means that TEN pounds of whole Reishi is concentrated down into one pound of extract. This results in far more potency, bio-availability, and efficacy in less space.
We have had a relationship with our distributor for many years, and not only know exactly where our herbs grow, but ensure the purity and potency with 3rd party lab testing. We are involved in every step of the process and proud to take the extra effort to ensure the quality so you don’t have to. Our products are grown organically, extracted purely, and secured in their respective packaging without the use of any fillers.
