ReishiMax GLp: Dietary Supplement ReishiMax is a dietary supplement formulated to provide nutritional support for a healthy immune system. This mushroom has the effect of enhancing our bodys natural resistance and physical well being, resulting in optimum health.
What is Reishi? Reishi, also known as Lingzhi, is one of the most valued herbal products in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Reishis earliest herbal remedies were recorded between the years of 206 B.C. and 8 A.D.
Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) mushroom is a fungus occurring as a shelf-like form on the sides of trees and stumps in densely wooded mountains with high humidity and low light. The spores of Reishi have such tough outer husks that germination is next to impossible, which accounts for its rarity.
In 1971, Yukio Naoi, a researcher of the Kyoto University in Japan, successfully developed the artificial cultivation of Reishi, which resulted in mass production of Reishi.
There are 62 types of Reishi, of which six are most common: REDBLACK BLUEWHITE YELLOWPURPLE Pharmanex has chosen to use RED Reishi in ReishiMax because it can produce the highest quality extract and has been subject to the most scientific evaluation.
Reishi Spores These highly active substances are the essence of Reishi. They are the reproductive cells that are released at maturity. Reishi spores are protected by an extremely hard shell which prevents us from optimally absorbing the actives.
Reishi Spores The unseen microscopic oval spores come from the top of the mushroom at maturity (4–5 months of cultivation). The Cracked Spore technology softens and breaks open the shell of Reishi spores so that the potent active ingredients can be extracted.
