Reishi’s spores are rich in unsaturated fatty acids, sterols and triterpenes which can be further concentrated using supercritical CO2 extraction to produce Reishi Spore Oil.

Being called ‘lingzhi’ in Chinese, the traditional Chinese medicine has used Reishi mushrooms for over 2000 years. Though they had not extracted triterpenes or not used that word, they were able to hypothesize that a group of chemicals were responsible for these marvelous benefits.
