Because of the corona pandemic and its effect on global logistic systems we are currently unable to ship directly to many non-EU countries. US and Canadian customers can place their orders with our California-based US partner, though. Customers in Australia / Asia - you can place your orders with our Australian partner.
Right now we are shipping to only a select number of non-EU countries, and for the time being, only registered shipping with tracking. So, no free shipping for the time being. You can see whether or not your region is included when checking out.
Transit times are unpredictable but almost guaranteed to be longer than usual, in general. We have no control over this.
This situation will last at least until the corona pandemic has been contained. In case you registered for our newsletter in the past: you will be notified when the situation changes. If not. check this page from time to time for updates.
Stay healthy !
The Oriveda Team
Science has been researching mushrooms for decades. For an extensive background click here ( page opens in new window ).
Some people taking high dosages of 1.5 - 9 grams per day reported one or more of the following side effects: temporary sleepiness, thirst, rashes, bloating, frequent urination and diarrhea. Taking the extract together with vitamin C seemed to improve many of the side effects. Lowering the dosage also helped.
These reports do not give details about the quality and properties of the extracts that were consumed; and taking into account the poor quality level of most Reishi products (see this 2017 report) it is not unlikely that at least some of these side effects might be related to that, so this appears not to be a direct cause for alarm.
Reishi Primo is a dual extracted and highly concentrated red Reishi fruiting body extract. It has been optimised for the compounds that make Reishi worth considering: triterpenes and beta-glucan.
There is no Reishi supplement with better specifications available. Click here to see our authorized 'Supplement Facts' label, based on objective lab test reports.
We guarantee the presence of the main bioactive compounds and their bioavailability. Go to the quality control page for the most recent third party test results.
What sets these mushrooms apart from pharmaceuticals and what makes them particularly effective is the synergistic effect of the combined bioactives (mainly Beta-Glucans, glycoproteins/proteo-glycans, polyphenols and triterpenes).
Extraction defines the therapeutic potency, since we cannot digest non-extracted mushrooms properly. See this -highly recommended!- link for the details about this.
Extraction is essential for an actual therapeutic effect, and dual extraction is often the best option - it will make both water-solubles and insolubles bioavailable. Research found that the immunological effects of mushroom extracts are up to 10 times higher when compared against non-extracted powders.
In case you are interested in how ORIVeDA did its due diligence when developing Reishi Primo click here (page opens in new window). On this page you'll find an article with a lot of objective background information about cultivation, extraction and other Reishi supplements.
Taking into account that a 2017 report concluded almost all Reishi sold in the US is not actually Reishi and lacks quality it's worthwhile reading material.
Hot water extracts (incl. home made Reishi tea), tinctures and powdered products at best contain only low concentrations of bioactives (which is why you never see them specified on the label of such products - it's better to keep it vague from a vendor's perspective). The bioavailability is always a major problem - if we can't digest all that good stuff we can't benefit from it, right?
Reishi Primo is one of the very few Reishi products that actually offers all those bioactives in a bioavailable form, guaranteeing not only the presence but also the quantity of those compounds. Odd as it may seem, it is actually rare to find Reishi with clear specifications, let alone verifiable specifications. Our mantra is and always will be: quality claims should be supported by third party test reports to be reliable and trustworthy.
Reishi Primo is produced using a multi-step extraction procedure (hot water, alcohol, alcohol precipitation) which ensures a high purity product, as opposed to extraction using only hot water or a mix of water and alcohol in a single-step extraction process.
