Organic Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is perhaps the most famous of all the scientifically researched mushrooms. Its wide-ranging health benefits stem from its high levels of beta glucans and polysaccharides and its more than 130 identified triterpenoid compounds. The science on reishi is some of the most extensive in the mushroom literature, with many promising avenues of research and potential benefits. Reishi is a complete whole food, rich in proteins, enzymes, minerals, and complex polysaccharides.
Organic Maitake (Grifola frondosa), also known as Hen of the Woods, is a highly prized mushroom that grows throughout the temperate forests of North America as well as in China and Europe. Long valued as a gourmet culinary mushroom, maitake also has excellent nutritional value, containing a variety of beneficial phospholipids, unsaturated fatty acids, polysaccharides, antioxidants, beta glucans, and plant sterols, such as the potent ergosterol.
Organic Cordyceps was discovered in the mountainous regions of China and Tibet about 1,500 years ago. Revered in Asian cultures, it was prized in the Emperor’s palace in China.
