As an athletic woman, I’m always looking forward ways to improve my performance and longevity. I generally flow toward natural foods and supplements. Never did I expect a mushroom tincture to be a part of my daily habit - until now! The red reishi and lions manes are so far my favorite. I immediately feel the effects and more so after the first month of taking. The customer service team at edible alchemy is also spectacular! Can’t say enough Great things - I’ll be ordering in bulk from now on. Above helping me get the best sleep, I can work out better and breathe better, hard to really explain if you have never taken. Try them!! You won’t regret it.
Great product. Very energizing. Not a great flavor, but I didn’t purchase for taste.
Haven't had it long enough to notice a difference yet but the taste is alot better than other tinctures I've tried.
I have used other mushroom extracts, and edible alchemy has a good product. I use the lions mane and reishi for sleep.
There weren't any instructions on how to use it. I know most Tinctures you place approximately 10 drops in water. That is what I did with your Tincture.

Reishi mushrooms supplements are made by using an actual Reishi mushroom which could be the entire ganoderma lucidum mushroom, just the fruiting body, or even just the mycelium or root in order to create a Reishi mushroom extract. They are 2 main ways in which Reishi mushroom extract can be made and categorized:
This method grounds up the whole mushroom or the ganoderma lucidum fruit bodies or roots into powder.
This procedure distills the whole mushroom or the fruiting body or roots, forming a liquid ganoderma lucidum extract as a result of condensation from distillation.
Both types of methods and Reishi mushroom extracts have their advantages and disadvantages. While Reishi distillates are slightly better for mushroom supplements, it all comes down to what you are really after and your purpose for taking them.
Since Reishi mushroom powders still contain the mushroom itself and are just grounded, that means they still have more of its contents intact, such as the fibers and other nutrients. Since it has included the solid mass, that also means it contains more impurities as well as the body has a slower time breaking them down in order to absorb its benefits. It is the choice for those who are after filling specific nutritional requirements they are lacking, such as protein, such is the case with vegans due to their diet consisting of just plants.
Reishi mushroom distillates are more concentrated since it excludes the solid mass, so it only contains beneficial compounds such as beta-glucans and antioxidants and in more volumes also. Since distillates don't include the mushroom's mass, fibers, and chitin makes it easier for the body to absorb the beneficial compounds, resulting in being able to acquire the benefits faster. That makes distillates the choice for those who are after the specific beneficial compounds of the Reishi mushroom, which appears to be the case for most who are taking Reishi mushroom supplements.
Reishi mushrooms can be converted into many different types of supplements, each with its own traits which may be more suited to one's personal preference and lifestyle. Regardless of form, supplements make it possible for everyone to take Reishi on a daily basis. Here are some of the most popular options for Reishi supplements:
Tinctures are alcohol-based liquid mushroom supplements that are on top when it comes to potency. A drop of tincture is taken underneath the tongue or sublingually for quicker absorption and more potent effects.
Glycerites are pretty much the same as tinctures, although they are glycerin-based and not alcohol-based. Being alcohol-free makes them a choice for people who want nothing to do with alcohol. Glycerin also helps better preserve herbs if the Reishi supplement happens to contain herbs and also provides a sweet taste making adding them to beverages possible aside from just taking them sublingually.
Powders are for those who like adding Reishi into soups or drinking them as tea, but being in supplement form makes them more convenient to apply and more potent. Powders offer the most freedom and flexibility, such as being able to control the dose more or being able to add them to other superfoods and beverages to make interesting and synergistic combinations!
Capsules are for those who prefer to take their daily dose of Reishi the traditional way, like their daily dose of vitamins. All you need is some drinking water, swallow, and then be on your way. Capsules are also great for those always out of town as they are quite portable or for those busy and usually in a hurry.

When storing a Reishi mushroom supplement, always abide by the golden rule of keeping them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and ensuring the containers are airtight.
Just like other consumables and dietary supplements, Reishi is prone to getting damaged. Exposure to harsh environmental factors may lead to deterioration of the supplement - especially its potency.
Everything that contains a natural ingredient, such as Reishi, eventually does. However, Reishi supplements have a long shelf life and last about 2 to 3 years on average, especially if properly stored. Always check for the expiration date the manufacturer has provided on the label, bottle, or pouch.
