Reishi Mushroom contains so many bioactive constituents that no one single molecule can be defined as its main bioactive. Polysaccharides, peptidoglycans, and triterpenoids are the main classes of active constituents in the mushroom, as well as beta-glucans. It contains over 120 triterpenoid compounds, some of which are referred to as lucidenic acids. Sterols, fatty acids, Vitamin C, copper, zinc, riboflavin, selenium, and germanium comprise the rest of the mushroom.
