Together with high levels of polysaccharides, Reishi contains over 100 triterpenoid compounds (ganoderic and lucidenic acids) found predominantly in the fruiting body.
Although Reishi is traditionally made into a tea (hot-water extract) these triterpenes are only poorly water soluble. However, they are highly soluble in ethanol (alcohol) and so MycoNutri Reishi combines hot-water (polysaccharide rich) and ethanolic extracts of log-grown (Duan Wood) Ganoderma lucidum to deliver high levels of both polysaccharides and triterpenes.
