Cracked Spores Plus is formulated with Eu Yan Sang's cracked spore formula to provide the benefits of the entire Lingzhi mushroom—also known as Reishi—including cracked spores and sporophore. Reishi contains polysaccharides and triterpenes to help boost the immune system, lower stress and anxiety, reduce inflammation, improve sleep quality, and suppress the growth of cancer cells.
Singapore-based Eu Yan Sang is known for having the highest quality Reishi supplement on the market. Unlike other Reishi growers, Eu Yan Sang uses raw wood organic Ganoderma lucidum grown in a wild cultivation environment. Additionally, they employ a strict 2 years on/3 years off cycle, cultivating mushrooms for 2 years then allowing the land to rest for 3 years after, and permitting only one fruiting body per log each year to ensure each Reishi mushroom has optimal nutrients for the highest potency.
Reishi (known as Lingzhi in Mandarin Chinese) has long been one of the staple medicinal mushrooms of Traditional Chinese Medicine, although prior to its cultivation, only the nobility could afford the wild mushroom. It was described in detail in the Eastern Han dynasty (25-220 AD) classic materia medica text, Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing, attributed with multiple therapeutic properties, including tonifying effects, enhancing vital energy, strengthening cardiac function, increasing memory, and antiaging effects. Modern clinical research has shown that Reishi also has immune-boosting and anti-cancer properties.
Reishi spore is the "pollen" released during a short 10-day window when the mushroom ripens, and the most potent part of the mushroom. Spores are a rare and valuable substance: only about 1 pound of spore powder can be extracted from every 1000 pounds of Reishi mushroom. The spores are small and have a notoriously hard cell wall, containing all of the nutrients inside. In order for the nutrients to be released and absorbed by the body, the spore shell must be broken and the actual spores cracked. As an innovation leader in TCM technology, Eu Yan Sang's technology achieves a 99% spore breakage rate.
Cracked Spores Plus formula combines the essence of the whole Reishi mushroom. It is refined from two components--80% is made up of the highly potent cracked spore powder and 20% of the highly concentrated fruiting body extract. The most valuable medicinal ingredients of Reishi are its polysaccharides and triterpenoid elements, and the fruiting body extract contains trace elements that are not necessarily contained in spore powder, giving the combined formula more effective immune regulation functions to have a more comprehensive effect.
When taken regularly, Reishi can:
Each 300mg capsule contains: Reishi Spores 80%, Reishi Extract 20%. Heavy metal, microbe, and pesticide-tested for 409 pesticide residues.
Take 3 capsules twice daily with lukewarm water before meals.
