Reishi: Vital mushroom – “The mushroom for long life”

Reishi – the mushroom of immortality – has a fixed status in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). No wonder: Reishi is effective against allergies and regulates high blood pressure.

Reishi is the Japanese name for a large, dry and woody mushroom. It grows exclusively on hardwood trees in the subtropical climate of Southeast Asia. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the mushroom is called “Ling Zhi”. Reishi is also known by the Latin name “Ganoderma lucidum”.

Reishi – the Chinese vital mushroom is very rare in nature. This anti-inflammatory food supplement has a long history: Due to the extremely difficult finding and preparation, the use of Reishi was reserved for emperors, high nobility and the high Taoist priests in China and Japan, until well into the 20th century. It was not until the 1970s that this vital mushroom was successfully cultivated. As a result, Reishi as a natural food supplement became accessible to the general public.

The valuable ingredients of this vital mushroom have a beneficial effect against many complaints:

  • Reishi activates the entire immune system and is effective against allergies

  • Reishi increases the detoxification functions of the liver and kidneys

  • Reishi helps to lower blood pressure

HANDO®: The high-quality production of reishi powder

HANDO® relies on strict quality standards with selection during the production of this natural dietary supplement: HANDO® uses only the spore-bearing part of the vital mushroom for further processing. And that makes the difference. In many Reishi products on the market the woody stem is also used to dilute the powder. The effect is thus weakened. With HANDO® Reishi-extract on the other hand, the concentration is 1:6. 1 kg of concentrated, high-quality Reishi powder extract is obtained from 6 kg of Reishi vital mushroom.
