Although there are reportedly more than 2000 species of Reishi, only six kinds have been studied extensively regarding their potential health benefits- red, black, blue, white, yellow, and purple Reishi. Of these six types, red Reishi has been shown to have the most significant health-promoting effects.There are well-documented immunomodulating effects, including allergy management and immunostimulating properties that strengthen and support the immune system’s resistance to infection. Bioactive compounds in Reishi have also been found to have direct antimicrobial activities1
Reishi’s formal, taxonomic name is Ganoderma lucidum . It is a large, dark mushroom with a glossy exterior and a woody texture.The Latin word lucidus means “shiny” or “brilliant” and refers to the varnished appearance of the surface of the mushroom. Also known under the name of Lingzhi , Reishi has been recognized as a medicinal mushroom for over 2000 years, and its powerful effects have been documented in ancient scripts.
The global mushroom market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9.5 percent from 2021 to 2028 .We’re seeing an upward trend in mushroom consumption because mushrooms are associated with three hot topics: plant-based eating, immune health, and sustainability
Our mushrooms are grown in a controlled and clean environment where the quality of water is thoroughly monitored and the wood chips on which they grow are sourced from sustainable forests, especially planted for this purpose. The mushrooms are grown in greenhouses with natural lighting and ventilation that is provided by mountain breezes.
Mushrooms are sponges and absorb most of components that compose its environment : water, soil, air. The main challenges that the industry faces when sourcing mushrooms extract is its purity which is very much linked to the raw material quality. At BKD we source our mushrooms in the Zhejiang area, they are grown in a controlled and clean environment where the quality of water is thoroughly monitored and the wood chips on which they grow is sourced from sustainable forests, especially planted for this purpose.
