Traditional use of Reishi

Reishi (ganoderma lucidum), also known as Lingzhi, "the mushroom of immortality," was first described by Huangdi, the Yellow Emperor. In his famous book on Traditional Chinese Medicine, he wrote extensively about the possible life-enhancing properties of Reishi. In China, it is believed to be one of the most powerful tonics available. It is said that Reishi is especially effective in counteracting the degenerative effects of aging.

Nourishment for the mind

Not only the body but also the mind is nourished; according to Taoist monks, Reishi is the most powerful 'shen' tonic. Shen tonics were considered to be a nourishment for the mind.

Imperial Reishi

There are different species of Reishi but the antler-shaped one, rarely found in nature, has traditionally been claimed to be the most powerful one. In ancient China there was a law stating that all the antler-shaped Reishi was owned by the emperor. This law existed in order to keep the emperor healthy and sane, so that it ultimately would benefit the whole country and its people.

Maitake is rich in vitamins and minerals, which are: Vitamin B1, B2, B3, C and D. and minerals like Iron, potassium, copper, magnesium, selenium and zinc.

Maitake also contains high levels of polysaccharides/beta-D-glucans (LINK TO BLOG).

  • Cultivated and harvested in Finland, organic Maitake mushrooms

Reishi plays an important part in the traditional medical systems of Japan, Korea, China and other Asian countries. It is used there as an immunostimulant for patients who are treated for HIV and cancer.

About KÄÄPÄ Health


After a traditional Finnish sauna session in 2016, the idea arose between 4 friends to start making their own mushroom extracts in a way that contributes to both human health and the ecosystem. KÄÄPA was born. Now, several years later, KÄÄPA has an enthusiastic team of 20 professionals and a mushroom farm with no less than 20,000 stems. All organic mushrooms are cultivated and extracted in Finland by KÄPA itself.


Het extractieproces


1 kg of dried organic Maitake mushrooms is used to make 20 liters of Maitake Mushroom Extract. There is about 100mg of concentrated Maitake in the maximum intake of 2ml of Maitake Mushroom Extract per day.

Dried fruiting bodies

KÄÄPÄ Health processes dried rather than fresh Maitake fruiting bodies in this tincture which results in an even higher concentration of active ingredients.
