Organic Fermented Reishi Spores- Living Nutrition
With its lacquered reddish-brown hat, Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) already aroused human attention at least 2,000 years ago.
All this time, this medicinal mushroom has been used to support physical and mental health. Under the lacquered hat of Reishi, lies another hidden treasure: the spores!
These contain up to 300% more triterpenes than the fruiting body, which can support the immune and defense system and have a relaxing effect. The Kefir-Kombucha fermentation process also increases the bioavailability of the ingredients. Order now and try it yourself!
The mushroom of 'immortality'
Reishi was especially revered in Asia, because it was thought that the medicinal mushroom possessed mysterious properties.
For example, Reishi was thought to be so healthy that when consumed regularly, the consumer would gain eternal life!
Reishi: source of divine inspiration
Because of the supposed immortality that this lacquered mushroom could provide, Reishi became a source of inspiration for art.
With regularity, Reishi was depicted among the gods, soon becoming a symbol of good fortune and a long, healthy life. Images of Reishi can still be found on walls and inside the 'Summer Palace' in Beijing.
Fermented medicinal mushrooms capsules
Living Nutrition uses a carefully selected fermentation process for this fermented mushroom supplement line that naturally increases the bioavailability of the medicinal mushrooms.
After the fermentation process, the organic medicinal mushrooms are carefully freeze-dried to ensure that all of the unique ingredients remain intact.
After this, the medicinal mushroom powder is encapsulated in organic, vegan tapioca capsules. Thus, this supplement is 100% organic both inside and out
Living culture symbiotics with Kefir and Kombucha
The products from Living Nutrition are made of a combination of the two most superior fermentation processes: Kefir, made from fermented soy milk and Kombucha, made from fermented tea.
This form of fermentation is also known as "symbiotics". The following differences are found between symbiotics and single probiotics:
Are grown synthetically in laboratories
Naturally fermented from plants
Only isolated bacterial species
More than 100 balanced and evolved bacterial species
Attaches to maltodextrin, a form of sugar, to stabilize
Attaches to natural enzymes and peptides
Contains no digestive nutrients
Rich in nutrients for digestion
Prebiotic sugars or fiber added
Wide range of natural prebiotics
Many naked, exposed bacteria
A complete, living ecosystem in harmony with the digestive microbiome
Fermented Soy Milk in Living Nutrition
Living Nutriton uses fermented soy milk for the Kefir fermentation process. In fact, sprouted soybeans contain a host of exceptional properties, including a unique balance of nutrients such as amino acids and polyphenols.
After the fermentation process, these nutrients form compounds that provide wonderful support for the digestive process, the healing of tissues and for creating the optimal environment for a healthy microbiome in the intestines.
- 600 mg organic fermented Reishi Spores (Ganoderma lucidum) per daily dose (2 capsules)
- Organic fermented tapioca (capsule)
- Symbiotic fermentation of Kefir (fermented soy milk) and Kombucha (fermented tea)
Health benefits of Reishi Spores
Research on Reishi (LINK TO BLOG) shows that it contains as many as 400 (!) different bioactive components. The main components are:
- Polysaccharides/ beta-D-glucans: Read more about them here (LINK TO BLOG)
- Ganoderic acids (triterpenes)
Ganoderic acids contain the following properties:
- Inhibits histamine release
- Cholesterol lowering
- Blood pressure lowering
- Protector of liver function
- Inducer of genetically programmed cell death
- Cancer inhibitor
The spores of Reishi also contain up to 300% more triterpenes than the Reishi fruit body. Finally, ganoderic acids may contribute to normal resistance to stress.
Fermentation health benefits
Research suggests that regular consumption of fermented foods may reduce the risk of certain cancers, it may support the immune system, it may protect the health of the gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract, and it may alleviate symptoms of Crohn's disease and irritable bowel syndrome.

Probiotics and prebiotics
The fermentation process significantly increases the level of nutrients which are, in this way, pre-digested into a bioavailable form.
New nutrients are thereby created together with a wide range of metabolic and digestive enzymes, which are also sometimes called probiotics or prebiotics.
