About Red Reishi: This “mushroom of immortality” has been used as food and medicine for thousands of years. In the northeast, we find the Ganoderma tsugae (Hemlock Reishi) mushrooms in the early summer as we walk through old Eastern Hemlock tree groves. The mushrooms literally glow and light our way to them. Once properly dried we carefully prepare a double extract that is preserved with organic cane alcohol. In the lean years, we purchase dried organically grown Ganoderma luciidum mushrooms and prepare the extract in the same way.
