Reishi, an umbrella-shaped appearance, is a fungus belonging to the family Polyporaceae and Ganoderma lucidum. Ganoderma lucidum refers to the fruiting body of Ganoderma lucidum in ancient and modern times. It is listed as “The main nourishment by nature, non-toxic,” The high-quality medicine that takes more and long time does not hurt people has the reputation of “immortal grass” since ancient times.
Reishi has a wide range of applications. From the dialectical point of view of Chinese medicine, since this product enters the five internal organs and replenishes the qi of the whole body, it can be taken if the heart, lungs, liver, spleen and kidney are weak. Disease types involve various systems such as breathing, circulation, digestion, nerves, endocrine, and exercise; covering internal, external, women, children, and five sense organs diseases.
What is Reishi fruiting body?
Reishi fruit body is the general term for the whole ganoderma lucidum strain. We usually say Ganoderma lucidum is the fruit body of Ganoderma lucidum. It is divided into caps and stalks. It can be ground into powder or cut into slices. It is mostly used for soaking in water, soup or wine, etc. , Reishi caps contain very rich Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides, triterpenoid ganoderic acid and other biologically active ingredients, while Reishi stalk contains few effective active ingredients. Under normal circumstances, it is not recommended to eat, and it is also discarded when producing Reishi series products. Unless it is not necessary, do not use stalked Ganoderma lucidum.
What is Reishi extract?
Reishi extract is a high-content substance extracted from Ganoderma lucidum fruit body through water and alcohol. It is bitter and easily oxidized and deteriorated, so the storage conditions are very strict. The polysaccharides and polypeptides contained in Ganoderma lucidum water extract have immunomodulatory, anti-tumor, protection against radiotherapy and chemotherapy damage, sedation, analgesia, strong heart, anti-myocardial ischemia, lowering blood pressure, lowering blood sugar, regulating blood lipids, and improving hypoxia tolerance. Anti-oxidation, scavenging free radicals and anti-aging effects. The alcohol extract of Ganoderma lucidum and its triterpenoids have the functions of protecting the liver, anti-tumor, analgesic, and anti-oxidant and scavenging free radicals similar to polysaccharides (peptides), as well as inhibiting histamine release and inhibiting angiotensin. Invertase activity, inhibition of cholesterol synthesis, inhibition of platelet aggregation, etc.
What is Ganoderma lucidum spore powder?
Ganoderma lucidum spore powder is the seed of Reishi. It is a powdery germ cell ejected from the cap during the mature period of Reishi. The diameter of each spore is only 5-8 microns. The spores are rich in Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides, triterpenoid ganoderic acid and trace element selenium. A variety of biologically active substances.
Why does Ganoderma lucidum spore powder break the wall?
Since the surface of the Ganoderma lucidum spores has double hard shells, the effective active ingredients contained in the spore powder are all wrapped in it, and the ingredients are not easily absorbed by the body. At present, the technology of Ganoderma lucidum spore wall breaking includes biological enzymatic hydrolysis, chemical method, physical method, etc. The ultra-low temperature physical wall breaking technology is more used, which greatly improves the body’s absorption and utilization of the effective ingredients of the spore powder.
Is Ganoderma lucidum spore powder bitter?
Pure Ganoderma lucidum spore powder is not bitter, and fresh Ganoderma lucidum spore powder exudes the unique fragrance of Ganoderma. The compound spore powder added with Ganoderma lucidum extract powder has a bitter taste.
What is the difference between Ganoderma lucidum spore powder and Reishi fruit body?
Reishi is a treasure in the treasure house of traditional Chinese medicine. The fruit bodies of Reishi are rich in polysaccharides, triterpenoids, proteins and a variety of trace elements. The broken Ganoderma lucidum spore powder uses modern technology to break the spores. It is processed under the conditions of bacteria and low temperature, and maintains the biological activity of the Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides, peptides, amino acids, triterpenes and other active ingredients in the Ganoderma lucidum spore powder. The content of active ingredients is much higher than that of Reishi fruiting bodies.
