BENEFICIAL SUBSTANCES CONTAINED IN REISHI
The mushroom contains a whole host of important biologically active substances. For example, it is very rich in polysaccharides, especially beta-glucans, which harmonise the immune system and have beneficial effects on blood cholesterol levels.
Another important group of substances includes triterpenes, which also support the body’s defences.
TRADITIONAL USES OF THE “DIVINE MUSHROOM OF IMMORTALITY” 
Reishi was one of the basic medicinal remedies of ancient China, with references to it appearing in ancient medical writings as far back as several millennia ago. This mushroom was administered as an immune support, both against threats coming from the outside and for inadequate immune system responses.
In the words of traditional Chinese medicine, reishi has a ‘tropism to the heart’ or also ‘nourishes the heart’. For this reason, hazelnut has been indicated to strengthen the heart and cardiovascular system. At the same time, its ability to ‘calm the spirit’ was exploited and it was given to those suffering from melancholy or sleep disorders. In monasteries it was used to promote a meditative state.
Reishi, in combination with cordyceps, was recommended as a tonic for fatigue.
WHERE OUR REISHI COMES FROM
This reishi is grown on an outdoor farm in Karjalohja, Finland. The gentle process ensures the production of the highest quality mushroom fruits. The cultivation is carried out using solid trunks of Finnish trees that have been carefully tested beforehand. The procedure is that the birch logs are inoculated in the spring and the following year they are already colonised with reishi.
Our supplier, KÄÄPÄ Mushrooms, currently grows 10 different reishi strains, which are combined in an extract of the highest medical quality.
What is important about KÄÄPÄ Mushrooms’ mushroom tinctures is that they contain only the fruiting bodies, not the mycelium. By preserving the root network during production and processing only the above-ground part of the mushroom, it is assured that the extract contains all the important compounds that may be missing in the roots. Although mycelium can be cultured under laboratory conditions and subsequently declared as mushrooms, some mushroom products obtained in this way tend to be poorer in active substances.
UNIQUE EXTRACTION TECHNOLOGY
KÄÄPÄ Mushrooms tinctures are processed using a revolutionary method of ultrasonic assisted extraction – UAE (Ultrasonic Assisted Extraction). This process is very clean and gentle, while increasing the yield of precious compounds from mushrooms many times over.
Ground fruiting bodies of medicinal mushrooms are placed in the ultrasonic extraction device. The ultrasonic waves help to break down the chitin cell wall in the mushrooms and release precious compounds that would otherwise be indigestible to our body.
Only liquid extraction reagents are used for double extraction: purified spring water together with hot alcohol. This extraction process yields the maximum amount of active substances.
The UAE method ensures that each bottle of tincture is highly potent, with all the beneficial substances in an easily digestible form without residual chemicals.
