Q: How do you take Mikei Red Reishi?

A: For preventative measures, we recommend taking 1-2 capsules daily. For individuals with health concerns, we recommend taking 2-4 capsules daily.

Q: When is the best time to take Mikei Red Reishi?

A: Ideally, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. For enhanced absorption, we recommend taking it with a source of Vitamin C.

Q: Can I take Mikei Red Reishi with other medications?

A: Although Mikei Red Reishi is a natural health supplement, it is recommended that you consult a healthcare practitioner prior to taking any new medication. There have been no reports to show that red reishi cannot be taken with any other medications. However, patients undergoing organ transplants and using immuno-suppressive drugs should always be cautious when taking any immune-modulating substances such as red reishi and are advised to consult their healthcare practitioner.

Q: Is red reishi safe for everyone to take?

A: There are no studies that restrict the consumption of red reishi to any specific person. However, consulting a health care practitioner prior to taking any health supplement is recommended especially for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Q: Are there any side-effects?

A: Red reishi is a natural substance that can be taken for a long period of time without any side effects. There have been cases where sensitive individuals may experience detoxification symptoms such as mild upset stomach, dryness of the nose and mouth, dizziness, soreness, and skin rashes. These symptoms normally subside after a couple of days. Consult a health care practitioner if these symptoms persist.

Q: How soon can one start noticing results?

A: Results can vary from a week to several months with the daily intake of a high quality reishi product such as Mikei, but most people notice a difference to their overall health and well-being within a month.

Q: How long can one take Mikei Red Reishi for?

A: There is no limit as to how long one can take Mikei Red Reishi. The daily consumption of red reishi is as much of a preventative measure for good health as it is a tool for people with specific health concerns.

Q: Are Mikei Red Reishi capsules vegetarian friendly?

A: Yes! Mikei Red Reishi capsules are all-natural and suitable for a variety of dietary requirements including vegetarians, diabetics, and those on restricted diets.

Q: How do I verify the safety of Japanese products after the major incident in Japan on March 11, 2011?

A: Since the Fukushima incident on March 2011, Nikkei Co. has taken every effort to ensure that all Mikei products are not affected. In addition to the close monitoring of levels in the reishi farms, all cultivating materials, raw ingredients, and finished products are independently tested. To date, all test reports confirm that no contamination has been detected in any Mikei products and all Mikei products are safe for consumption. For more information, please click here.
