Triterpenes–the highly prized lipid constituent of Reishi well researched to provide a host of benefits, yet it remains the elusive ingredient missing or marginal in most Reishi supplement formulas. Enter MushroomShen–hardly the peddlers of biomass or mycelia found elsewhere, our formulas contain the highest percentage of triterpenes of any formula on the market. Now we are also offering the alcohol extract in unadulterated powdered form. Extremely potent.
Note: Customers have asked what we think the difference between alcohol and hot water extract is. There is ample scientific research delineating the two. The hot water extract is richer in polysaccharides including beta glucans which are immunomodulatory. The alcohol extract contains triterpenes which have more action on renal and hepato function. Effectually, we find that the hot water extracts are better for calming, sleep (heart calming (TCM)), whereas the alcohol extracts we find to be more physically strengthening(jing tonification (TCM)).
8% minimum triterpenes, 10% minimum polysaccharides
