Red Reishi mushroom has been revered for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine as the “mushroom of immortality”. Not only is Red Reishi a powerful and natural immune supportive mushroom, but it is also known for its ability to calm the mind and alleviate the symptoms of stress. Chinese medicine refers to the human spirit as Shen, which is said to reside within the heart, and it is here that Red Reishi’s tonifying, protective and balancing properties are directed. Red Reishi soothes the spirit, boosts vitality, and promotes longevity, homeostasis and overall wellbeing.
Scientific studies have further validated Red Reishi, acknowledging its ability to support inflammation, the heart, liver, kidneys, immunity, and the nervous and endocrine systems. Besides its immunoregulatory polysaccharides, Red Reishi also contains oily terpenoid compounds such as ganoderic and lucidenic acids which contribute significantly to its wide range of beneficial actions.
Helvetia’s mushroom spagyric extracts are dual extracted to achieve a full spectrum of both water and alcohol soluble active compounds.
Helvetia’s RED REISHI spagyric extract is packed in vegan, enteric-coated capsules. These are specially designed to remain intact as they pass through the stomach and its acids, thus allowing the body to maximize absorption of the active compounds in the intestines. This delivery system significantly increases bioavailability as compared to conventional capsules or solid extracts.
