For this Amazonian Reishi extract, we only use Ganoderma applanatum that comes directly from an indigenous community called the Siekopai people. Just after raining season, the members of this community go out onto their ancestral lands to harvest fully-grown Ganoderma applanatum. An independent, onsite ecologist who specializes in mycology manually assesses the harvested fruiting bodies so that we are sure that we are dealing with the correct type of mushroom.
By buying this extract from our store, you are directly supporting the Siekopai community in Ecuador.
This full spectrum concentrate is designed to convey the entire character of Ganoderma applanatum while keeping convenience and ease-of-use in mind.
By using ultrasound during one of the stages of our extraction method, we are able to break down the hard chitin layer in the fungi. Using this method, we rupture the fungi’s cell wall which enables us to extract a maximum amount of active mushroom components. This is how we can keep the naturally occurring synergy of different compounds intact.
This full spectrum concentrate has a long shelf-life because it contains 60% alcohol, which prevents micro-organisms from growing.
For every liter of Amazonian Reishi extract, we use 1 kilogram of Ganoderma applanatum fruiting bodies.
