Mycology Press Monograph:
Together with high levels of polysaccharides, Reishi contains over 100 triterpenoid compounds (ganoderic and lucidenic acids) which are responsible for many of its unique properties. Although Reishi is traditionally made into a tea (hot-water extract) these triterpenes are poorly water soluble but highly soluble in ethanol (alcohol). In order to deliver the full-spectrum of this most revered of mushrooms the Reishi used in MycoNutri Organic Reishi is grown on whole Duanwood (basswood) logs, extracted twice with hot-water and once with ethanol before the combined extracts are concentrated and spray-dried without the addition of maltodextrin or other carriers to achieve a finished product with a minimum of 15% beta-glucans and 4% triterpenes.
