I've been taking Ganoderma Lucidum/Reishi for almost 6 years on and off and also bought some from different stores and suppliers in capsules and extract powder but this Aloha mushroom's powder looks and tastes different, it is questionable when it comes to purity and quality! Reishi mushroom always tastes bitter and dark brown color, it doesn't matter if you combined it with other strains or not, some of the powder yes it has bright color like Aloha's mushroom that's because either it's grown in a LAB or they got it from a la la land! It means it has no healing properties and not worth it at all!. I was curious when I ordered this then when I opened and saw it, I had to laugh to tears but I gave it a try for 3 days, during my test I took 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon, I had INSOMNIA (Please note; you will never get insomnia from pure and good reishi, one of the healing properties of reishi is to relieve insomnia) but when I stopped three days later my sleep restored, so I GUESS...they probably injected some steroid too like some what bad mushroom suppliers/makers do. If you take this mushroom and feel better, I'm sure it's because placebo effects. Save your money and buy other brand instead. Good luck!.

I am officially on my second bottle! I bought 2 more bottles after my first one and I intend to keep on with this reishi. I bought this primarily to extinguish my anxiety problems and deal with some dermatitis/exczema I have on my feet. I can't say I see any definite physical results yet, but I get a good feeling when I take this, and I am intuitively drawn to sticking with this and continuing to take it, and I feel confident my skin rash will dissipate. I have read and researched a lot and it takes a good couple few months to start seeing the total benefits of taking these reishi~so my intuition has strongly told me to keep on, and I will. I have bought 2 more bottles and will be taking these for the next two months, I will write another review in another month to describe my progress. :) Am so grateful I found iherb. I found iherb looking for this reishi, and iherb sells it way cheaper than the aloha medicinals site does~ since I first found iherb a month or so ago, I have made 3 orders and bought many different items from soap, to shampoo, to coconut oil, among other things. I have researched every product I've purchased on several sites to compare prices (yes I have a lot of time on my hands some days) and I have not found any site that compares with the price of iherb with shipping costs and all. So, in essence, I absolutelyl LOVE iherb and will be buying from this site for years to come.
Helped me a lot with eczema and auto immune condition

The Reishi medicinal mushroom helped me SO MUCH dring the last months, that I continue taking it even after there are no symptoms of my previous [health] complains. This one, as well as "Cordyceps" were recommended to me by doctor implementing medicinal mushrooms in his practice. Well, I am glad to say, that my eczema (which was present for more, than 2 years) disappeared and I witness big improvement in my kidney problem. Overall I am extremely pleased with this mushroom and will continue using it for quite a long time ahead. This is my first time purchasing this brand (before I bought either "Nature's Answer" or the "Nature's Way" products and although they were awesome and helpful, I put high hopes on this one, because Aloha Medicinals makes arguably the best medicinal mushroom products (including formulas) available today.
