Beta Glucan 1,3/1,6 Reishi Mushroom

Beta-1,3/1,6 D-glucan Reishi Mushroom

Our Beta-1,3/1,6 D-glucan is a highly purified, water-soluble standardized extract derived from the Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) that is grown and harvested domestically in the USA. The adaptogenic reishi extract is stable to heat, pH change, and chemical fortification and currently used in food, dietary supplement, beverage, and personal care applications.

It is FDA GRAS Certified and produced through a patented ultrasonic extraction process which is solvent and alcohol-free. The extraction takes place by isolating the beta glucans from the fruit-body and the mycelia in different stages. This procedure maximizes the production of beta glucans and preserves the effective polysaccharide linkages. 

The results in a finished active composition of >70% beta glucan (1,3 /1,6), the highest of any reishi mushroom produced. 

Supported by decades of research efforts, there are currently five patents and several clinical studies that show data on effectively supporting a healthy living and promoting wellness by combating stress, balancing the immune system, improving energy, and reduction of allergies. In personal care, it promotes skin-repair and healing properties.
