this is one of the products I am so excited about.

If you know me in person you know tonic herbs are such beautiful support to my life. one of these herbs has always been REISHI.

Reishi is known as the “mushroom of immortality” and used for thousands of years, particularly in China and Japan. Its possible benefits include

•  very strong antioxidants

• It is believed to suppress the growth of tumors in people with cancer.

• Also beneficial for people suffering from asthma and other respiratory conditions because it seems to have a healing effect on the lungs.

• Have anti-inflammatory properties and are therefore used sometimes for patients who have Alzheimer’s and heart disease.

• Reishi mushrooms can improve the flow of blood to the heart and reduce the amount of oxygen the heart consumes. It can help to lower cholesterol and some of the ingredients may help combat high blood pressure.

It is one of the magical herbs that can work on all of the Three Treasures, only a handful which can work on your Shen / spirituality

this brings me to today’s topic

“this spirit reishi is not for EVERYONE”

reason – too expensive for those who are not willing to work on themselves

let me explain.

Reishi and other medicinal mushrooms are classified as tonic herbs, which means it is safe to take for everyone (well, almost.. of course you need to listen to your body and be conscious about the dosage) But these things are quite expensive , especially this one.

Spirit Reishi combines a triple hot water extraction from only the fruiting body (standardized to a minimum of 20% polysaccharides) with the cracked cell wall spores (cracked to 99.8%) of legendary Red Ganoderma Lucidum mushroom. This is done without any fillers, binders or excipients so that you have the cleanest and most potent reishi mushroom product available anywhere in the world.

The reason why Spirit Reishi is so effective because its growers work with nature in the conservation of energy when producing it and use 40+ wild and indigenous plants as the substrate for growing it. These herbs are used as the growth medium upon which our mushrooms are cultivated and this process allows us to select for a more robust genetic expression that is closer to its wild counterpart and thereby greater amounts of polysaccharides and triterpenes than normal lab grown reishi (often cultivated on just rice, corn or wheat).

the fruiting body of the reishi mushroom is used and not never mycellium. This is because you will always end up with a higher quality extract with no fillers (rice) or indigestible fungal matter from mycellial biomass (chitin). With Spirit Reishi you get 100% extract and broken cell wall spore powder, nothing else.

amazing stuff.

In my opinion nothing will “fix” your problems on its own. I take herbs and I think they are amazing and grateful for its existence. But I don’t just rely on them.

what I eat, think, feel and I surround myself with are all as important as just taking herbs.

If this spirit reishi will give you without you doing your own work then it doesn’t give you as much as it can potentially.

However if you are willing and ready for this it is totally worth it. It is like an intelligent guide on your journey.

are you ready for this? go here to purchase or at the shop 120 high street, Northcote, Melbourne

only limited number available


If you are new to reishi and not sure if you want to spend this much, we also have a great quality reishi extract of 10:1 here It still gives us everything you expect without any fillers and preservatives.
