Every growing season, the Reishi mushroom produces its “fruiting body,” that part which we see and think about when we think “mushroom.” At the end of the growing season, Reishi produces “spores,” which are like tiny microscopic seeds. Each Reishi produces millions of spores and these spores form a coating of lovely chestnut brown powder all over the fruiting body and beyond. These spores are collected. They cannot be used in this raw state because each spore has an impermeable cell wall that humans cannot digest. However, the spores are extremely rich in phytochemicals, so scientists have developed an effective way to “crack” these cell walls, allowing the material inside to be extracted. The spores are rich in Reishi spore oil, and this oil can be extracted using high tech methods. Dragon Herbs Reishi Spore Oil is the pure essence of Reishi spores, the most bioactive Reishi material. The essential nutrients of Reishi are contained in its spore. Reishi Spore Oil has been shown to powerfully support the immune system functions for healthy individuals, and is a superb tonic for those who wish to promote their health, age slowly and preserve their youthfulness. Dragon Herbs Reishi Spore Oil is a golden transparent oil. Reishi Spore Oil is extracted directly from cracked-shell Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) spores by advanced proprietary CO2 super-critical extraction technology. Reishi Spore Oil is the concentrated essence of some water-soluble constituents and all the lipid-soluble substances contained in Reishi spores, including all triterpenes and nucleosides. Reishi Spore Oil is easily absorbed by our body.
It is VERY concentrated. 100 kg dried Reishi fruiting bodies (mushrooms) produces approximately just 1 kg of spores. And it takes over 20 kg of “cracked” spores to produce only one kilogram of spore oil. Cracked-shell Reishi spores can be up to 70 times more therapeutic than the whole original Reishi mushroom of the same weight. Ron Teeguarden’s Reishi Spore Oil soft gel is 70 times more potent than Reishi powdered extract. Reishi must be “cracked” to extract the oil and all constituents from the spores — if this is not done properly, the result will be poor. Just one Reishi Spore Oil soft gel (about 500mg) of Ron Teeguarden’s Reishi Spore Oil contains over 100mg of triterpenes, the most active constituent of Reishi oil. Most other brands of “Reishi spore oil” on the market are cut significantly with vitamin E oil to cut cost. Dragon Herbs Reishi Spore Oil is 100% DuanwoodTM Reishi spore oil.
Ron Teeguarden’s Reishi Spore Oil is produced in an ultra-modern GMP-rated pharmaceutical facility under the auspices of, and certified by, the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and the Ministry of Health of the People’s Republic of China.
