REISHI MUSHROOM - Fighter's Friend spagyric tincture
BENEFITS OF REISHI MUSHROOM:
• Radiant health and longevity
• Enhanced concentration and mental focus
• Optimised circulation – works to regulate blood pressure, relieve arthritis and enhance injury and wound healing
• Powerful immune modulator, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant
REISHI (also known as ling zhi or ‘supernatural fungus’) is the mature fruiting body of the Ganoderma lucidum mushroom. Hailed by numerous Asian traditional medicine systems as the ‘mushroom of immortality’ – used to “promote radiant health, longevity and a more centred state of mind” – reishi has also been extensively researched by Western science.
Renowned as an adaptogen (i.e. it ‘adapts’ to the body’s specific needs based on health condition and gender) and immune modulator (i.e. it regulates and ‘fine tunes’ the immune system), reishi is also recognised for its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-diabetic, and anti-cancer properties, and its ability to support neurological, metabolic, hepatic, and vascular systems.
The anti-inflammatory qualities of reishi enable it to help versus cognitive disorders (such as Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease) by increasing the amount of blood flow to the brain. By optimising circulation, reishi also works to relieve arthritis, gout and headaches, and to enhance injury and wound healing. By improving the efficiency of blood flow to the heart and lowering blood pressure, reishi reduces the amount of oxygen consumed in the heart, enabling greater amounts of oxygen to be utilised by other organs and throughout the body. Reishi can also reduce the level of ‘bad’ cholesterol and help to protect from heart attacks and strokes.
Research indicates that reishi can help to decrease the level of toxins in the body, especially the liver (reishi hastens the regeneration of healthy liver cells). Reishi has also been shown to be able to prevent allergic reactions (ranging from skin irritation to anaphylaxis) and relieve the symptoms of asthma, bronchitis and other chronic respiratory conditions.
Reishi has been demonstrated to prevent the development of cancers and to inhibit the development and metastasis of tumours. Certain bioactive compounds within reishi have demonstrated selective cytotoxic properties (i.e. seeking out and neutralising cancerous cells within the body).
The anti-oxidant properties of reishi mean that the ’10,000 year mushroom’ works to neutralise free radicals capable of causing chronic disease and premature aging. Reishi also helps to maximise lifespan by boosting the immune system and preventing certain abnormal blood vessel formations.
Reishi has long been prized not only for its role in maintaining radiant health and facilitating longevity, but also for its vital assistance to ‘spiritual seekers’ and meditation practitioners: calming the mind, easing tension, strengthening memory, sharpening concentration, improving focus, promoting inner balance and awareness, building willpower and, as a result, wisdom.

SPAGYRIC TINCTURES offer a more energetically complete herb or plant extraction. These concentrated extractions contain the three essentials – that is, the body, soul and spirit – of the herb or plant, purified and recombined in an exalted medicinal form. The spagyric technique is part of the ancient initiatic tradition of alchemy – the Art that lies at the heart of the inner traditions of the West.
Ordinary herbal tinctures only partially utilise the curative powers of the plants from which they are prepared. Spagyric tinctures are made according to unique processes which ‘open’ the plant or herb and liberate stronger curative powers. The spagyric technique of confecting herbal remedies embodies another – more synergistic – way of considering Nature and its powers.
“The spagyric tincture of turmeric is probably the best natural supplement, period. I take two doses a day and feel great. It helps me to recover, reduces joint pain and soreness due its anti-inflammatory properties, and also helps with stomach problems and indigestion. Athlete or not I recommend this to everyone.”
— Glenn ‘Teddy Bear’ Sparv (#1 mixed martial arts welterweight in Finland, ranked top 100 in the world)
“Turmeric is an awesome tincture. As a professional fighter in Thailand I often suffer muscle soreness and joint pain. Since I started taking the spagyric tincture of turmeric daily, it’s really helped me to keep going from one training session to another. It has also helped to improve my flexibility thanks to its anti inflammatory virtue.”
— Adrien Rubis (WPMF Super Middleweight World Champion, fights out of Poptheeratham Muay Thai, Bangkok, Thailand)
“As a martial artist and combat athlete I’m constantly dealing with pain, inflammation and injuries from training and competition – so I’m always on the lookout for any natural advantages I can get to aid in my recovery. It wasn’t until I started using the turmeric spagyric tincture that I noticed a huge difference in my ability to recover from hard training. I honestly didn’t even realise how much inflammation I had until it was gone. Using both the turmeric as well as the spagyric tincture of tongkat ali I have a noticeable advantage in my ability to recover from, as well as push through, hard workouts, day in and day out. I highly recommend Mare Maia’s natural products to all people looking to improve their health and performance.”
— Dylan ‘The Muscle’ Fussell (MMA Pro Team Head Coach, Team Quest Thailand)
“I use Mare Maia’s turmeric and tongkat ali spagyric tinctures and love them both. The turmeric is basically a cure for joint pain. The tongkat ali really gives me a boost for the hard workouts. Whether you are a pro athlete or just someone who likes to work out and be healthy, these products really help with all the nagging little things that come from intense exercise.”
— Ryan McKelvy (MMA fighter, Chiang Mai, Thailand)
“The turmeric seems to help with the overall recovery of my body after training, and I haven’t noticed any lower back pain since starting with the tinctures!”
— David Mcmahon (Bangkok, Thailand)
“I used tongkat ali a long time before I got in touch with Mare Maia. Back then I used it in powder form and although I liked the benefits, being a powder it required me to ingest large quantities, so it wasn’t cost-effective. When I started using tongkat ali in tincture (liquid) form it didn’t require me to ingest such a large quantity, because in the tincture form it’s so concentrated. I notice a big difference especially during dieting and hard training. My mood is much better, better libido, more energy and strength during training, and boosting recovery.”
– Glenn ‘Teddy Bear’ Sparv (#1 mixed martial arts welterweight in Finland, ranked top 100 in the world)
“Since taking tongkat ali daily I can see how my body has changed: I have bigger and leaner muscles, and that's very important for a fighter going through weight cutting (i.e. to be as lean as possible). I highly recommend this tincture. It also has some aphrodisiac properties that your wife or girlfriend won’t be complaining about.”
– Adrien Rubis (WPMF Super Middleweight World Champion, fights out of Poptheeratham Muay Thai, Bangkok, Thailand)

“I approached the tincture of tongkat ali with a healthy amount of skepticism. Although I am very much for natural remedies over pharmaceuticals, as a member of the fitness community I am all too well aware of the spurious claims many products make that are often far from scientific.
I researched tongkat ali online and found many anecdotal stories of athletes who have had great success with powder forms enhancing their training. Of course I was aware of the increased efficacy of a spagyric tincture over powdered herbs so decided to give it a go.
I have been measuring my testosterone for some months prior to taking the tincture. As someone who works out regularly and hard I was surprised to find in June 2014 my testosterone levels were 5.49 ng/ml. The normal range for men is around 3-8 ng/ml. I felt that with my diet and exercise it should be at the high end so went about modifying diet and exercise habits to naturally increased testosterone levels. By August I had increased my levels to 6.04 ng/ml – not a bad increase in such a short time. At the beginning of October I started to take 10 drops morning and evening of the tongkat ali tincture. During this period my diet remained good and due to an injury my exercise was reduced. I hoped the tongkat ali would keep my testosterone levels stable while I recovered.
Imagine my surprise when seven weeks after starting the drops I received my results – my testosterone had shot up to 13.16 ng/ml. The lab told me they repeated the test because they couldn't believe the level.
Now an athlete who is injecting testosterone would expect levels of 15 ng/ml upwards but of course this comes with many potential side effects none of which occur with a natural boost in bodily testosterone.
The best benefits for me have been shredding fat at a crazy rate, increased cardiovascular endurance and elevated mood. You can be sure I'll be taking this tincture daily for a long time to come. The cost to benefit ratio is just off the charts!”
– Seb Cursley (Bangkok, Thailand)
“As a professional athlete in a combat sport, the benefits of tongkat ali combined with the fact that it is an all natural product made it a very obvious choice for an experiment.
I started noticing some differences immediately, like how my energy levels have soared. Training twice a day and getting up with (or before) the sun has become exponentially easier since I started taking it. Approaching a fight, fatigue is very normal. I find myself less than a week from a fight, for which I had to cut a lot of weight, feeling strong, motivated and hungry to tear apart the gym in training. It was one of the easiest weight cuts I've had: 5.5 kg in 7 weeks seemingly fell off my already lean body, and I feel great.
Paul and Marissa sent me loads of info about tongkat ali, making sure I was well educated about what I was taking, and any possible negative side effects. In my opinion this is just as important as taking supplements in the first place.
I would recommend spagyric tinctures from Mare Maia to anyone who is looking for either a natural solution to a problem, or a natural way to improve on overall health and well being. Thanks Mare Maia!”
– Melissa Reaume (Hongthong Muay Thai Gym, Chiang Mai, Thailand)
“The tongkat ali spagyric tincture boosted my workout intensity and efficacy. Once I landed on the appropriate dosage and frequency, it became a boon to my overall health / fitness. Thanks Mare Maia!”
– Mike Helm (Chiang Mai, Thailand)
“I’ve done four weeks now of 7-10 drops per day (first thing in the morning) of tongkat ali spagyric tincture. It was about one week after starting that I felt a noticeable strength improvement when working at the gym – I estimated it to be something like a 5-10 per cent boost: about one extra rep on some of the heavy ‘core’ exercises ... for example, I managed to up my bench press routine by using 80 kg (rather than 70 kg) for first ‘warm up’ set if 10-12 reps. Never did that before. This surprised me a lot. Occasional bursts and ‘new level’ breakthroughs happen in the gym of course, but it has been 2-3 years since my last one.”
– JK (Bangkok, Thailand)
