    Pharmanex ReishiMax GLp®


    Pharmanex ReishiMax GLp® is a proprietary, standardized extract of reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) mushroom. This standardized product also incorporates cracked spores, a novel technology that releases reishi's active ingredient, providing unique immune activity.1

    ReishiMax is produced through solid wood log cultivation. This method is preferred to sawdust and liquid cultivation because it yields both polysaccharides and triterpenes from the fruiting body and is less prone to contamination and quality control issues than other methods.

    Reishi spores are tiny reproductive cells that are released by the mushroom at maturity. The spores are protected by an extremely hard shell, which prevents the polysaccharides and triterpenes contained in the spore from being absorbed. Pharmanex uses technology which mechanically 'cracks' the spores, making the active ingredients bioavailable.

    ReishiMax has been demonstrated to support healthy immune system function by stimulating cell-mediated immunity. According to the results of animal and in vitro studies, ReishiMax has been demonstrated to stimulate the formation of antibodies, stimulate the proliferation of immune cells, and modulate the functions of T cells. ReishiMax is intended for adults who wish to maintain a healthy immune system.1

    In addition to animal and in vitro studies conducted with ReishiMax, third party clinical studies have established the ability of reishi mushroom to support immune function in humans.1


    Each capsule contains 495 mg of standardized reishi mushroom extract and 5 mg of reishi cracked spores and is standardized to 6% triterpenes and 13.5% polysaccharides.
