What are Reishi Supplements Made of?
It’s crucial to evaluate the quality of a mushroom supplement, namely the use of fruiting body instead of mycelium. Fruiting body is where all of the essential vitamins and nutrients are found. Supplements that display fruiting body extract will perform better.* Many supplements choose to use mycelium powder, which is not an actual component of the mushroom.
Mushroom Wisdom’s Super Reishi Supplement is made from the mushroom fruiting body grown on logs and extracted using hot water and alcohol. This extraction process ensures fruiting body is being pulled from the mushroom, not mycelium. We clearly display Super Reishi’s ingredients, including 700 mg of reishi fruiting body double extract and 80 mg of vitamin C per serving.
