It has high polysaccharide content (41% beta – glucan) and triterpenoid compounds which belong to two families: ganoderic and lucidenic acids.
This mushroom is grown on Duanwood (or “original wood”) logs where Reishi grows naturally producing the best and highest quality Reishi.

Reishi also seems to be able to lower blood pressure. this is a concern that it might make low blood pressure worse and could interfere with treatment, so don’t use it, if your blood pressure is too low. Taking Reishi might increase the risk of bleeding during surgery, so stop using Reishi at least two weeks before scheduled surgery.
