The reishi is traditionally highly valued in East Asia to enhance general well-being and vitality.

There is scarcely another mushroom that is as revered as the reishi in East Asia. It is referred to in the 2000-year-old Chinese work “Shen Long Ben Tsao” as the “mushroom of longevity” or the “growth of spiritual power”, and even classified as more precious than ginseng. The reishi has a wide range of uses in Asia. It is traditionally regarded as a tonic or, as we say today, as a natural “anti-aging substance”. In the meantime, it has been proven how exceptionally rich it is in valuable substances.

Owing to its positive effect on human well-being, the reishi also features in the art and culture of Far Eastern civilisations. The presence of the mushroom is considered a good omen.

The fruiting body of the reishi has a firm consistency. The upper side of the fruiting body has a reddish-brown, shiny and smooth surface. Hence its name “shiny polyporus”.

In order to preserve the whole wealth of substances and make them available to our customers, we also gather the valuable spores of this mushroom. These are brushed off the fruiting bodies meticulously by hand by our personnel and mixed in with the whole mushroom after the drying process. This ensures that the tiny spores are not lost during the drying process.

We cultivate the reishi on a wood substrate specially made for this mushroom. It is important that the substrate mixes, especially the wood components, are prepared in such a way that the reishi can penetrate them and then form its impressive fruiting bodies. Special attention is paid to ensuring the correct level of air humidity. Even small deviations can be very detrimental to the harvest or ruin it completely.

Production: (click here to watch our production video) 
The cultivation and processing into mushroom powder capsules takes place entirely and exclusively on our premises in Limeshain, Germany. The mature, freshly harvested mushroom is dried immediately after harvesting, using our special careful drying process, then ground into powder carefully with a water-cooled mill and filled into HPMC capsules. There is no interim storage (e.g. cold storage). Through the immediate, quick and careful processing, we ensure that all important substances it contains are preserved and that the mushroom does not lose its natural beneficial properties for human nutrition. It may contain traces of millet.

Our quality promise

By controlling the entire production process, from seed to capsule filling, we ensure that you always receive optimum organic quality.


This is ensured by the high-quality organic raw materials, the use of fresh, ripe and whole organic mushrooms and their careful processing. This includes in particular the gentle drying and careful grinding of the mushrooms. As a result, our organic mushroom powder capsules are free from any preservatives.

What makes us so special?

If possible, everything from one region

The word "home" is very important to us as a family business. We are rooted in the region and the people here and, above all, we want to create regional jobs and secure them in the long term.

Family atmosphere

Many of our employees have been with our company for decades and appreciate both the short commute to work and the family atmosphere. In addition to the positive effect on the climate and the strengthening of the business location, a good work-life balance is important to us.

Growing but conserving resources

We source raw materials such as maize and wood chips from regional suppliers for the cultivation of our organic medicinal mushrooms. This means we have short transport routes and can support local farmers and local businesses.

There are many small adjustments that can be made to make a company sustainable. For example, our production and all of the company's vehicles are powered by electricity generated by our own photovoltaic system (200 kW). We can therefore largely dispense with combustion engines. In addition, heat-loving mushrooms that thrive at high temperatures are only grown in summer. Cold-loving mushrooms are grown in the cold season to save heating and cooling energy. Two combined heat and power plants, which utilise the principle of cogeneration, ensure a higher degree of energy utilisation.
