A Brief History of Reishi
The origins of Reishi can be traced back over 4,000 years. Found in ancient Chinese Medicinal Books, it is ranked number 1, above all other herbs. It is from earning this high position that it is often called “the King of Herbs” and “The Mushroom of Immortality”. Though early information is sparse, it is believed that it was highly sought after by ancient Chinese emperors because of its reputation for effectiveness. Due to it's rarity in nature, they tried to keep the mushroom's benefits as secret as possible. It is written that punishments were given to royal court doctors who spoke of Antler-shaped Reishi's medicinal value!
What is Reishi?
In simplest terms, Reishi, or Ganoderma Lucidum, is a rare type of mushroom, which belongs to the family of herbs. Known by several names, in Chinese it’s often referred to as Ling Chih or Ling Zhih. It’s extremely rare, and in order to produce enough to meet the demands of all people, it must be cultivated and scientifically processed. Very few companies in the world have the technology, equipment, or resources to do this properly, so finding the best Reishi is essential to achieve all the potential health benefits it can offer.
Among Reishis, there are six different types, identified by their color. Among them, Red Reishi offers the most health benefits. Red Reishis in general are quite rare, and among Red Reishis, there is one that is far more effective than all of them. This very special Reishi is called “Antler-shaped, so named because it’s shape resembles deer antlers. But Antler-shaped Reishi is also extremely rare, since it is estimated that only 1 in 100,000 Red Reishis found in the wild will be Antler-shaped. This is one reason why Antler-shaped Reishi must be cultivated using highly specialized processes. While most manufacturers find that producing Antler-shaped Reishi is too cost-prohibitive, Genius Legendary’s massive volume allows us to produce this very desirable Reishi at economical prices. In addition, Genius Antler-shaped Reishi is 500% concentrated, 100% organically grown, and 100% pure, which makes ours the world’s best Reishi!
Who can benefit?
As an herb, our top-quality Reishi is safe for people of all ages, nearly all health conditions, and lifestyles. People in excellent shape such as marathon runners can take Reishi for maintaining peak fitness, just as people suffering from asthma, allergies, and even cancers can see and feel results.
The ingredients of various Reishis can vary widely, which is why it’s absolutely critical to be sure the Reishi you buy is 100% pure Reishi, cultivated and manufactured specifically to offer maximum safety and health benefits. Additionally, our Antler-shaped Reishi plants are harvested when they are very young and precisely at their peak, which allows Genius to produce the most highly concentrated Reishi available. While these young plants yield far less product, our 500% concentration makes Genius Reishi more economical and effective as well. Below is a list of the active ingredients in our Reishi, and the benefits they are known for:
Organic Germanium – Most notable for its ability to protect the body against cancer cells and tumor growth. Reduces cholesterol and excess fat, enhances oxygen absorption of cells, enhances immunity, balances blood PH, and reduces blood-based toxins.
Polysaccharides – Promotes interferon production, acts as anti-cancer agent, anti-inflammatory, and anti-virus. Also helps lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Includes Beta-glucans, a type of polysaccharides that are known to activate white blood cells (macrophage).
Adenosine – Boosts anti-platelet aggregation, has blood-cleansing action, dissolves thrombi and improves blood circulation.
Triterpenoids – Inhibits histamine secretion thereby relieving allergy symptoms and pain, protects against liver damage, inhibits inflammation.
Amino Acids – Helps repair muscle tissue, organs, skin, ligaments, and more.
Depending upon a person’s health condition, the results of taking Genius Reishi can be quite significant. For example, our Reishi is especially effective in improving organ functions, reducing bodily toxins, strengthening the immune systems, and helping relieve respiratory conditions such as asthma and allergies. Health is improved from the inside out…in other words, Genius Reishi is not just a cover-up of symptoms, but effectively improves the systems that the body depends on for life.
Pollutants found in the environment are also a factor in people’s health. The effects of smoke, smog, chemicals, etc. are insidious, and contribute to a multitude of ailments. Here again, Reishi’s powerful detoxifying action is an effective way to counteract such effects.

Another discovery is that Reishi has been shown to be effective in treating many types of cancers. Having seen literally thousands of our customers with cancer show significant improvements in their conditions, we feel Reishi may be the best treatment ever found for cancer. Many cancer patients have also found it helps reduce the nausea and general sickness feelings one often encounters wile undergoing chemotherapy treatments. And, Reishi is extremely powerful for strengthening the immune system, which often deteriorates as a result of undergoing conventional cancer treatments.
Please see our Product Selector Page for a complete list of conditions that Reishi can be taken for, as well as the products we specifically recommend for each.
In tests conducted in our laboratories, we have found the purity, ingredients, and effectiveness of most Reishis varies widely. Some, such as “wild Reishis”, which are not cultivated but found in the wild, have been found to be quite unsafe. Tests on other cultivated Reishis have shown that compared to the other commercially available Reishis, Genius Reishi contains approximately 3 to 4 times more germanium and 4 to 5 times more Polysaccharides that even their pure red Reishis.
