Duanwood Red Reishi Mushroom
10:1 Concentrated Extract Powder - 2oz (56 grams)
What is Reishi Mushroom Powder?
Reishi mushroom comes in six varieties, with duanwood red reishi being both the most common and nutritionally dense type of them all. This strikingly beautiful polypore has a woody texture and shiny appearance, and it grows in all parts of the world. Our duanwood reishi is log-grown and carefully cultivated to the highest standards to produce an excellent quality powder. We turn ten pounds of the highest quality reishi mushroom into one pound of concentrated, bioavailable extract powder.
What Are the Health Benefits of Reishi Mushroom Powder?
This little natural wonder is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, amino acids and minerals including potassium, calcium, and magnesium. What really makes it stand out from other medicinal mushrooms is the synergistic effect produced by a combination of polysaccharides, bioactives, and triterpenes. Reishi mushrooms have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2,000 years, no wonder it is often heralded as “the mushroom of immortality".
Reishi is also one of only 16 substances that have been classified as having adaptogenic properties. The naturopath, Edward Wallace, explains that “an adaptogen doesn’t have a specific action; it helps you respond to any influence or stressor by normalizing your physiological functions, which means that it is able to help your body to better respond to both mental and physical stresses”.
How Do I Use Reishi Mushroom Powder?
Traditionally, reishi mushrooms would require hours of preparation, but our reishi extract comes in a highly concentrated powder form so it can be instantly added to any food or drink without any further preparation. Reishi mushroom does have a distinct woody and bitter taste so it’s often made into a tea; to mask the bitterness you can add some of your favorite sweeteners. You can also blend half to one teaspoon into a smoothie or juice, or mix it into food with some herbs or spices. If you're a bit of a wizard in the kitchen, then you can use reishi to jazz-up your healthy recipes such as superfoods bars, energy balls, raw chocolates, smoothie bowls, truffles, and cakes.
Reishi also blends well with other medicinal mushrooms such as lion’s mane, tremella, turkey tail and maitake medicinal mushrooms. You can experiment with adding a range of superfoods, medicinal mushrooms, and tonic herbs to create your own unique tonic elixirs to nourish your body and mind. Can’t choose which medicinal mushrooms to buy? You may just love our medicinal mushroom complex powder which contains a concentrated blend of eight of the most-loved medicinal mushrooms in an organic Miron violet glass jar.
Our reishi powder is available in different sizes and comes in a resealable, eco-friendly pouch which is perfect for travel. We recommend storing your reishi in a cool, dry place to further help to extend its shelf-life.

Reishi Powder Dose: How Much Should I Take?
Out of all the medicinal mushrooms that we offer, reishi is considered to be one of the most powerful of the bunch. Some people report feeling the effects of taking reishi almost immediately. If it's your first time trying any sort of medicinal mushroom, then we suggest that you start with a smaller dose of between 1/4 and 1/2 a teaspoon, and then working your way up to a larger dose. Reishi mushroom can be enjoyed throughout the day, although its particularly great to take first thing in the morning as a replacement for a caffeine-laden coffee or tea.

Warming Reishi Tea Recipe
For those new to reishi, the intense flavor profile may take a little getting used to start with, but many users report growing fond of the taste after a while. This simple recipe helps to soften the reishi with a nutritious blend of plant-based milks, natural sweeteners, and spices. It’s great to sip on on-the-go too, so prepare your reishi tea in the morning and then pour it into a travel flask so that you can enjoy it throughout the day.
You Will Need
Plant-based milk - try coconut, hemp or cashew milk
A pinch of cinnamon
1 tsp of coconut oil
1/2 - 1 teaspoon of Hybrid Herbs Reishi powder
Pop the powder into a mug and then add in around a cup of warm but not boiling water. Stir until the reishi is fully dissolved. Transfer the mix to your trusty blender and then add the plant-milk, cinnamon, dates and coconut oil. Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour back into your mug and enjoy. In the summer months you can enjoy an iced reishi tea by first cooling it in the fridge or by adding a few ice cubes.

"I've been using your Duanwood Reishi Mushroom for the past few weeks, and I am already feeling great shifts happening inside. I've tried many types of Reishi, but your Reishi is definitely the real deal. It gives me a sense of calmness inside, an inner knowing that everything will work out. It assists me in really intuiting what my body needs and when, whether it be rest, exercise or work.”
