Reishi Mushroom Liquid
How to Use
Frequently asked questions
Q. I’ve seen that other products contain mycelium. Why don’t yours?
It might surprise you to find out that most “mushroom” products on the market don’t come from actual mushrooms. In fact, most sellers have never grown a single mushroom. Instead, they grow mycelium, which is basically the roots of the mushroom.
Mycelium is grown on grain, like rice, millet, rye, or wheat. Many sellers grind up the mycelium along with the grain of, say, Turkey Tail. The truth is, what the customer ends up with is a product that contains few (if any) beneficial mushroom compounds. Instead, they’ve paid top dollar for a jar full of (mostly) starch.
Look for the words 100% fruit body to ensure you’re buying the good stuff!
Q. But why do other sellers insist that mycelium is the best bit of the mushroom?
Because it’s cheaper and quicker to grow, of course! The problem is, there isn’t hard evidence to show that mycelium is overly beneficial to humans. Graham (our founder and 40-year mycologist) has made the conscious choice to exclude mycelium from his products.
1. Mycelium is full of salt and carbs and offers no proven benefits
2. It’s impossible to separate the mycelium from its growing medium (often rice or grain) — including mycelium in mushrooms powders inevitably introduces fillers that definitely aren’t beneficial
Q. Where do you grow your mushrooms?
We grow our own mushrooms in Western Australia's most high-tech mushroom growing lab. But there are some that we can't grow ourselves because of our climate and conditions. In this case, we import mushrooms from Certified Organic growers. This means our customers get the best possible mushrooms.
im convinced this the best product i have taken for my anxiety, i will try the alcohol free brew in my next order, chris
I really enjoy the mushroom tonics they don’t add a bad taste to drinks when added which is what I dislike about other supplements I take. I take it before bed and nine times out of ten i have a very relaxed sleep, sometimes I sleep too well !

My daughter suggested I start using Reishi. I've been using Reishi since early this year, initially in my morning cup of tea. I have recently switched to the evening. Thank you
