What is Reishi?
Reishi, or the yellowish or shiny mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum), is a species of mushroom that grows on decaying wood logs. Its hallmark is a fan-shaped hat with a shiny, yellowish surface. Although it grows in various parts of the world, the tradition of worshiping it and consuming it for medicinal purposes is an inherent element of Asian culture, where it has been known as Reishi for thousands of years. Reishi mushrooms have a special place in traditional Chinese medicine.
The main active ingredients with amazing properties are considered to be beta-glucans - belonging to a broader group of compounds called polysaccharides and triperpenes .
Beta- glucans and polysaccharides
Polysaccharides are an extensive group of chemical compounds with long chain molecules made of repeating sugar units. Due to their structure, polysaccharides can be perceived as biopolymers that occur naturally in plants and animals. Polysaccharides include starch, cellulose, glycogen and chitin. Individual polysaccharides have different properties and therefore play different functions, depending on the way in which the monomeric sugar units are linked together and depending on their type.
Another subgroup of polysaccharides characteristic of mushrooms are beta-glucans , which, like cellulose, are a component of dietary fiber, but unlike cellulose, they constitute its soluble fraction. Beta-glucans are part of the cell walls of mushrooms, constituting one
of the main structural elements of their fruiting bodies.
From a chemical point of view, they are compounds composed of D-glucose molecules connected by beta-glycosidic bonds. Beta-glucans differ in their chemical structure depending on their origin, practically every species of mushrooms has its own unique variety of beta-glucans, which is responsible for specific properties.
What makes our extract unique? / Triple standardization
When buying dietary supplements with Reishi, it is important to pay particular attention to the type of standardization of the extract, i.e. based on what ingredient its strength is determined. Even though many products are based on highly standardized extracts, they often only refer to the total polysaccharide content. However, there is no information about the content
beta-glucans , while they, along with triterpenes , constitute the essence of Reishi, giving them unique, health-promoting properties.
Information about the total polysaccharide content alone does not determine the high quality of Reishi extract, even if it is 40%, 50% or more percent. These may be alpha-glucans (which include, for example, starch), or, additionally, the polysaccharide content may be artificially high.
due to the presence of maltodextrin, which is sometimes added as a carrier to stabilize the extract. Therefore, a full picture of the quality of Reishi extract can be obtained by additionally knowing the content of beta-glucans and triterpenes.
