similar to chaga, reishi is very diverse in benefit with high anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety and immune boosting properties. reishi is considered an adaptogen for its ability to calm the fight or flight response, strengthing resilience in both physically and mentally stressful situations. reishi is additionally known for its potential benefits to the kidneys and liver by reducing inflammaiton and reducing erosion of the nephron outter membrane (decreasing kidney permeability). reishi’s immune supporting properties are well rounded, including promoting the innate immune function, humoral immunity, and cellular immunity. in particular, reishi extract may improve the function of B and T lymphocytes, dendritic cells, macrophages, and natural killer cells.


what to expect. 

while reishi is rich and diverse in benefits, the two most noticeable effects are stress reduction and digestion improvement. reishi is considered a powerful adaptogen, which 


we do it right.

all roots apothecary mushroom extracts are certified organic and lab tested to verify beta-glucan content and therapeutic compounds. our mushrooms are grown on native substrates and always extracted from the fruiting body. if you’re wanting the powerful benefits of performance mushrooms, choose organic extracts from the fruiting body to maximize both therapeutic compounds and bio-avilibity.

extracts are better.

mushrooms are often dried and ground into a powder. this is cheapest way to produce a supplement, but it provides the least health benefits. essential beta-glucans need to be extracted from the cell walls of a mushroom. these cells are made of an indigestible fiber called chitin. the human body can’t easily absorb chitin, and so the beta-glucans end up passing through rather than being absorbed. extracts break down chitin, making beta-glucans available for absorption.

fruiting body has the good stuff.

fruiting body refers to the actual mushroom cap and stem. myceliated grain is the root system of a mushroom grown on top of a grain substrate resulting in approx. 50% roots, 50% filler, and 0% of real mushroom. mycelium is cheaper and faster to produce than waiting for a full proper mushroom. beta-glucans are found in the fruiting body, not the mycelium.

a boom and bastardization.

mushrooms have been around for a long time. the greeks labels mushrooms as “food for the gods” and hippocrates, circa 450bc, classified mushrooms as a potent anti-inflammatory. there are countless examples of mushrooms being recognized for their medicinal properties throughout history. performance mushrooms are becoming very popular in modern holistic health and western medicine for their and ability to calm the stress response, reduce inflammation, promote neurogenesis and plasticity, strengthen beneficial gut flora, support the immune system, fight pathogens, increase sustainable energy and much more. like most natural remedies that go mainstream, the mushroom industry is flooded with low quality products that testing low in beta-glucan and active compounds. when a mushroom tests high in polysaccharide, but low in beta-glucan content, it's basically an exotic potato. high in starch, low in therapeutic value, and deceptive above all. while the booming popularity of performance mushrooms is bringing mainstream attention to these healing enigmas, the bastardization of quality and authenticity makes it difficult to find a product that packs the therapeutic benefits found in nature. if you’re interested in the benefits of mushrooms, you should know what you’re getting.

Great quality

I cannot confirm Reishi is the reason for it (as I have been doing many additional things for my health), but I have not gotten sick since November of last year. I mix it up in my coffee, and don’t feel the taste. I feel very good consuming a product of such good quality.

Give it a try

I've been reading about ways to decrease my level of anxiety without going on medication, and reishi was something my therapist recommended. I did some research on mushroom blends versus reishi itself, along with companies that claim theirs is more potent etc. I stumbled on Roots Apothecary, and I couldn't be happier. They stand by their products and offer your money back if you're unsatisfied, so I figured, why not? After one to two weeks, I've noticed a difference in my sleeping pattern. After one month of taking it consistently, I've seen a difference in my level of anxiety. Since then, I've been on a monthly subscription. I've also given samples to friends, and they're now on a monthly subscription. I also like that they provide small samples of other products for you to try.
