FORMULATED WITH WILD HARVESTED REISHI!
Our Reishi Shroom Complex is pure Duanwood Red Reishi Mushroom!
Naturally grown and harvested from hardwood logs in the forest. We only use matured fruiting bodies of Red Reishi – one of the most potent of all the types of Reishi Mushrooms.
PLUS CRACKED SHELL RED REISHI SPORES!
We also add equal amounts of Red Reishi Spores, which are very rich in triterpenes, one of the main active compounds in Reishi.* In fact, the spores are far more potent than even the fruiting body.*
Our Reishi Formula contains Red Reishi and Cracked Shell Red Reishi Spores.
- 30% Polysaccharides
- 20-25% Beta-Glucans
- 5% Triterpenes
- No Fillers, No Dying Agents, No Additives, Just 100% Pure Extract
Spores are, however, impossible for humans to digest due to their hard coating. They must be “cracked” by a modern technique to expose the inside of the Spores to our digestive system. Cracked Reishi Spores are prized and are more expensive than Reishi alone.* Supporting Research 1–25
Reishi Shroom also includes the addition of piperine, the active alkaloid chemical found in black pepper. It immediately increases the bioavailability of the powerful compounds in these mushrooms so that you can feel the difference!
WE ONLY CULTIVATE & HARVEST THE PUREST SOURCED BOTANICALS
HOW AND WHEN TO USE REISHI SHROOM COMPLEX
- Add 1/2 tsp to hot water, coffee, tea, or smoothie.
- Reishi Shroom Complex can be taken day or night – with or without food, so enjoy!
- We recommend once daily, but most importantly listen to your body (if it requires more, less or none:)

WHY EVERYONE SHOULD RELISH REISHI MUSHROOM
It’s beautiful, it’s intriguing—it’s reishi mushroom (Ganoderma spp.), a woodland fungus that haunts the woodlands in both Asia and the United States.
Growing sometimes to an enormous size, people may spy this mushroom erupting from the side of certain tree trunks, often showing off colors of bright scarlet and yellow, though sometimes it can also take on a deep purple-burgundy color.
Regardless of its appearance, it’s the bewitching health benefits that lurk underneath its surface appearance that people are truly after.
Ancient herbalists in China, the forerunners of today’s modern Traditional Chinese Medicine practices (TCM), experimented with this tough-as-nails mushroom and eventually discovered that, when made into certain preparation forms, reishi imparted very noticeable health benefits.
Today, what was once considered a simple health tonic is now one of the most popular, renowned, and premier supplements for wellness.
Seek out the best and highest quality reishi extracts and experience its ancient benefits firsthand—health properties that, though once praised long ago, are now backed by dozens of scientific studies and research. Including:
- Boosting of immunity to lower inflammation, reduce one’s chances of getting sick, and helping deal with allergies better*
- Antioxidant support that can help one age better, strengthen organs and systems, rev up energy, and stop degeneration and free radical damage*
- Neuroprotective and neurogenerative effects that both protect and stimulate the growth of healthy nerves and neurons*
- Enhancement of brain function, including memory, focus, multi-tasking, learning, cognition, problem-solving, and mental energy*
- Metabolism benefits that can help unleash better energy levels while improving metabolism to keep an ideal weight*
NOT JUST ANY REISHI MUSHROOM…
It’s true that reishi touts many perks for health and wellness, supported by both evidence-based use in the past and modern scientific studies today.
But it’s not true that just about any reishi supplement is effective, nor do they all have same effects as any other preparation.
For the most effective and trustworthy reishi extracts or supplements that are far more guaranteed to deliver all of its research-supported benefits, seekers of the healthful mushroom should look for formulas that include cracked shell reishi spores.
Spores from reishi are known to contain the densest concentration of the mushroom’s bioactive compounds (polysaccharides and triterpenes). However, they need to be “cracked,” because each spore is surrounded by one of nature’s hardest natural substances ever, a fiber called chitin.
The human body cannot digest chitin and thus we can’t access reishi’s compounds naturally. As such, supplement extracts that only contain cracked shell spores—or otherwise a dual extraction process of hot water and alcohol—will be noticeably more effective.
Fortunately here at Primal Herb, we work hard to make sure our extracts are only made using dual extraction and cracked shell spores to ensure that every single compound is guaranteed to go the extra mile.
