Reishi Medicinal Mushroom

Dr. Ganolife Organic Skincare brand containing organic reishi mushroom extract

Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is a great natural support in healthy lifestyle as well as in everyday skin care. It has been known and used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Traditionally reishi mushroom has been associated with “immortality” and now scientific results also prove the health supporting benefits of this „ancient healing herb“. There are more than 400 well known health-friendly properties and bioactive compounds in the reishi mushroom.

What is reishi?

It is a special mushroom that has been known and used for over 5,000 years in Chinese and other Eastern Asian traditional folk medicine and has been associated with extraordinary vitality.

The mushroom comes in six different colours, among which the red reishi (akashiba) is considered to be the most effective.

Reishi  has several immune-modulating properties. It can help to promote cell regeneration and is also able to penetrate in the deeper layers of the skin. Other significant properties are its anti-oxidant and anti-aging capabilities.

Why do we use reishi extract in our Dr Ganolife skincare range?

There are just as many reasons as many health supporting benefits of the reishi mushroom. It has extraordinarily high anti-inflammatory properties that make the product family suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin, too.

Numerous experiments have also proved the antimicrobial properties of the reishi mushroom which can therefore reduce the risk of infections, too.

Why certified organic mushroom extract?

During growing, the mushroom acts like a sponge and absorbs everything, both good & bad from the soil and the environment they are growing in. So if there are any impurities like chemicals or heavy metals where the mushrooms are growing, they will absorb them, too, and you will introduce all those nasties into your body. But because our reishi mushrooms are coming from a certified organic mushroom farm, they are extremely high quality and therefore they are so effective.

Our Dr Ganolife product range is dermatologically tested.
