Making Ganoderma/ Polypore Mushroom Tincture

A friend from up north gave me a dried mushroom, a *Ganoderma oregonense * to make a mushroom tincture.IMG_6115It is one of the many *Ganoderma* mushroom species that grow in North America. Some of the species include Artists conk, Hemlock varnish shelf, and Lacquered polypore aka Reishi. The Japanese name Reishi or known as Ling-xhi/Lingzhi in Chinese refers to the *Ganoderma lucidum* species, but there are many mushrooms in the *Ganoderma* genus that are used in the same way. They all have adaptogen abilities, which means it helps people adapt to stressors, creating balance to help with many health challenges. These mushrooms have unique and superior nutrition content being high in antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, essential fatty acids, protein, polysaccharides and many other nutritious medicinal constituents that make it a good immune system regulator.
