Why Mikei Red Reishi?

With so many natural health remedies out there for building a stronger immune system… why take Red Reishi Mushroom and more importantly, why take the Japanese Mikei Red Reishi? Well, let’s start with what is red reishi…

What is it?

Once reserved only for royalty, red reishi was the most sought after medicinal herb in Eastern medicine because of its rarity. Today, practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine consider red reishi nature’s most powerful and beneficial adaptogen.

What are adaptogens?

Adaptogens are herbs that can increase the body’s ability to handle external stressors and restore it to normal physiological functions. No other adaptogenic herb can do this better than red reishi.


Traditionally, red reishi was prized as the “herb of longevity” – used to promote calmness, improve meditative practices, and attain a healthy life.

Reported Benefits

  • Increased energy
  • Reduced stress
  • Regulated immune system

Red reishi contains unique compounds such as polysaccharides (beta-glucans), triterpenes (ganoderic acids), and amino acids. Studies have shown these components to have several benefits including, but not limited to:

  • Immune system support
  • Stress reduction
  • Anti-aging, anti-oxidant
  • Supports liver health
  • Modulated energy
  • Cardiovascular health

If you are a history buff, here is how Red Reishi was discovered…


Around 2730 BC, a Chinese emperor, Shen Nong, personally tasted and catalogued over 365 plants to create the first book of Traditional Chinese Medicine. For each plant, he evaluated them on the range of illnesses they treated, how effective they were, and the number of side effects they had. One plant in particular “the red reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum)” was classified as the best of the “Superior” plants.

Reishi was depicted in paintings, embroideries, buildings, sculptures, and carvings of the gods and immortals. It was revered as the “herb of longevity” for its ability to improve health conditions without side effects. Now, as modern medicine struggles to mimic the healing powers of natural substances, more and more people are discovering the ancient secrets of red reishi.

With so many types of Reishi, Why Japanese Red Reishi?

Japanese are the foremost experts on reishi growing and were first in the world to commercially cultivate crops of the red mushroom variety–a task considered impossible to achieve for centuries. In 1976, the Mayuzumi family, renowned mushroom growers in Japan, identified and patented the most superior strain of red reishi, and perfected its cultivation and concentration to the exacting standards of the Japan Reishi Association (JRA).

Studies have shown that mycelium and spore-based reishi products do not contain all of the chemical constituents that are found in red reishi. In fact, the most unique and identifiable ingredient, ganoderic acid, can only be found in the fruiting body of mature red reishi. In the history of Traditional Chinese Medicine, mycelium and spores were discarded for extraction.

Like many products on the market, unextracted reishi powder has few results compared to authentic red reishi extract. Unprocessed, ground-up mushroom particles in the reishi are different from its medically active ingredients; the particles do not contribute any benefits and can actually cause an allergic reaction in some people.

Properly extracted red reishi contains the highest levels of medicinal substances in the most bio-available form. With Mikei Red Reishi, the high quality extraction technique is just as important as the stringent growing conditions.
