What Are Red Reishi Spores?
Red Reishi spores are produced by the Red reishi mushroom as a form of reproduction since the spores act like tiny little seeds to give rise to new Red Reishi mushrooms. The Red Reishi mushroom can produce a large amount of these spores which can subsequently be harvested. The motivation for harvesting the Red Reishi spores is due to what is contained inside which is an incredibly high concentration of triterpenoids. When it comes to Red Reishi, we are often times looking for two main classes of compounds; polysaccharides and triterpenoids. It is thought that out of these two classes of compounds, the triterpenoids have the most significant health-boosting effects and this is what makes the Red Reishi spores so incredibly sought after. A properly produced extract of Red reishi spores can contain a whopping amount of triterpenoids -- in the range of 30%! This puts Red Reishi spores in a league of its own and has been said to be the ultimate way to harness the health-boosting effects of Red Reishi mushroom.
However, there is a catch. The spores are very well shielded and taking just the raw spores would be a waste of time as our bodies cannot access what is held inside of the spores. To get around this, scientists have developed a novel method to get the triterpenoids out. This is a process by which the Red Reishi spores are cracked open which allows the Red Reishi mushroom spore oil to be extracted.
What Is Spore Oil?
Red Reishi mushroom spore oil is the concentrated extract of the triterpenoids which are contained deep within the Reishi spores. There are various ways by which the Reishi mushroom spore oil can be extracted, but all of them start with the cracking process we described above. Once the Reishi spores have been cracked, we need to isolate the Reishi mushroom spore oil from the shell, so that we can further concentrate the triterpenoids. This can be done using various different methods, some of which involve harsh chemicals. We have instead opted to extract the spore oil with a solventless process using supercritical CO2. This is a highly efficient process that extracts the Reishi mushroom spore oil safely and above all, in an exceptionally clean and healthy way. Combine this clean extraction process with our state-of-the-art analytical in-house testing, and you have one of the cleanest and most effective Red Reishi mushroom products you can get your hands on. Our Red Reishi spore oil has been consistently testing at 30% triterpenoids, which is an enormous amount of highly beneficial triterpenoids!
What Does Red Reishi Spore Oil Do?
In general, the Red Reishi spore oil is going to produce all of the standard Red Reishi benefits but with much more efficacy. The Red Reishi mushroom benefits include:
May help improve immune function
May help promote healthy levels of oxidation
May help promote healthy levels of inflammation
May help improve sleep quality
May help improve skin health
