Immune Support Testimonials
"I was a RN and the last 3 years I worked I took Mikei Red Reishi mushrooms in the winter months. I never got the flu but my colleagues all got the flu a couple times a year. I used to tell them it was my "magic mushrooms" that boost my immunity and helped me not get sick. Now that I am retired and COVID is here I have been taking them everyday since April 2020 I am still well. I love your product! and will continue taking it."
"My wife has been taking Mikei Reishi mushroom supplements for the past 5 years over the winter months to improve her immune system. When the pandemic started we both took the supplements for the past year and it has been part of what protected us from it. That was so important not to come home from work with it and give it to my wife who has a lowered immune system due to previous cancer treatment. Your product is excellent and we will both continue taking the product."
"My energy level has gone up which has helped me get through a day of work and exercise. Also, I did not get the flu last season. My immune system seems to have been boosted up during the cold season. Other benefits that I have noticed include sleeping well throughout the night and an improvement in my digestive health. My whole body feels more balanced with the intake of your capsules. Thanks!"
"Hi, my wife and I have been faithfully taking 1 capsule each of Mikei Red Reishi daily, along with 500 mg of Vitamin C for the past 5 or 6 years. I am in my late 70s and my wife in her early 70s. The results have been fantastic with neither of us been down with a cold or any other illnesses I believe due to the immune boosting results as a direct result of your fine products. We have also encouraged a number of our senior friends to buy and use your product and they also are very pleased with the results."
"We've been taking Mikei Red Reishi mushrooms for 5 years now and were able to replace a number of other supplements we were previously taking with them. As a result they are pretty much the only supplement we take, knowing that they help us maintain our health in all important areas. We continue to notice the benefits from taking them on a regular basis including a definite increase in energy with the ability to continue to live an active lifestyle as a result. We also feel we are more resistant to viruses as we don't come down with as many flus or colds as our co-workers, friends and family. Mikei Red Reishi is our primary supplement for all of our health concerns as we continue to age and remain young at heart."
"Since I started Mikei I have noticed no hay fever this spring, no colds or flu – even though my roommate had bad colds and the flu – despite the fact I was working very hard (high stress)."
"I love Red Reishi - 5 of my friends are now taking it. (Of course I had to tell them my secret for 'looking so young' and 'feeling fantastic') All of that thanks to Red Robinson. I believed him. Thank him for me."
"I am very sensitive to my immune system and I noticed that my blood pressure was more stable, my energy levels were more even (I usually experience a 3:00 pm low - this energy stability happened gradually over a few days) and I had a general feeling of well-being. I should add that I am normally allergic to mushrooms, but probably because this is an extraction, rather than the mushroom itself, I had no reaction."
Balancing Energy Testimonials
"Working in entertainment necessitates many late nights, and after a while your immune system can become compromised through lack of proper rest. Mikei gives me the boost in immunity, and energy that I need to live my life, when my healthy diet can’t meet the demands of my lifestyle."
—Red Robinson, Canadian music icon
"I've been taking the Mikei Red Reishi Mushrooms for almost a month now and I feel like I've stumbled upon a miracle to say the least! I feel fantastic! No more night sweats, lots of energy, getting full nights rest, no cold sores (1st time in almost 10 years, I would get them around my period coming), boosted my immune system, able to handle stress of a busy realtor. I really feel the difference! After spending so much money at the naturopath, I decided this year to take things into my own hands. I talked to some one at Pure Pharmacy in White Rock and she stated her mom swears by your product and that I should give it a try. I had heard about them before and was unsure, due to the expense, but I now know in the long run, taking this product will save me money at the naturopath. I just have a general overall sense of wellbeing and I feel like I'm back!"
"Mikei has increased and stabilized my energy levels, I have better overall health, acne has been reduced 85%, I feel less stress, emotionally balanced and happy."
"I just wanted to tell you how much I love your [Mikei] Red Reishi capsules. I have been taking them for about 9 months now, and I also have gotten my husband onto the program. We have experienced a remarkable surge in energy and overall wellness that is undeniable. I work on a TV show here in Vancouver, and I have turned many of the crew (and cast) onto your Red Reishi as well. As a result, those who are now taking the capsules never get any sickness that is going around on the set. We are the "Red Reishi bunch" and it is no coincidence that we are the healthiest, happiest people on the crew. Thanks again for producing a truly effective and remarkable health product! It is absolutely worth each and every penny!"
"I picked up a box of Mikei here in Victoria and I have been taking it for a month now... I no longer crave sugary snacks to keep my energy up, so I have managed to cut granola bars and energy drinks out of my diet. An unexpected perk of all this was I have already lost a few pounds. I definitely plan to continue taking this!"
"I have MS and could not believe how different I felt after the first week of taking Mikei Red Reishi. My energy levels went way up and I didn't need to have my normal afternoon naps. This product, along with other positive life changes has enabled me to go back to work. My overall feeling of well-being has greatly improved. After taking this product and experiencing how it has helped me, I would highly recommend it to other people."
"I have been using Mikei for decades. I am in excellent health with no inflammation in my body and I have an exceptional amount of energy."
Stress Management Testimonials
"Not only has my overall physical health improved significantly but my psychological health has also improved. It is difficult these days to find a company that delivers the excellence of quality I have found. I am a first time buyer who is now a lifetime customer."
"I had been suffering from stress induced headaches and hormonal imbalance and nothing I been trying worked. I tried Mikei and it was a profound experience---it rejuvenated my body, gave me balance and clarity."
"Just wanted to let you know that your Reishi is starting to help me. I have had insomnia for the past 16 months and it is literally destroying my life. I went to doctors for help and they prescribed anti depressants and made me feel worse as they altered my personality and I stopped them. I started Reishi two weeks ago and I felt so much worse in the beginning. The few hours of sleep I would get were down to like 2 hours a night and I got bad headaches. I battled through it and I am starting to feel better each day and sleeping more and more than I have in 16 months. I am getting a feeling of we'll being as each day passes and my self confidence is going up. I am feeling more social and happy. I started with 1 the first week and now I am up to 2 on the second. I just want to thank you guys for such a wonderful powerful product. I have 5 others on it also. I never thought i would find something to help me."
"I was lucky enough to be a recipient in a recent giveaway of your Red Reishi product. I cannot thank you enough... I have seen amazing results in my three year old son after starting your supplement. His charts from preschool have shot up and he has been saying more words than ever before (he's mostly nonverbal-has autism). I am forever grateful for receiving your product and am getting ready to order more soon!"
"I am a 47 year old woman. I have had problems with the asthma for the past 10-12 years. I recently had a bout of asthma and was on [medication] with no success... I waited a month before I started the Reishi [capsules]. I took only one a day for the first week and I noticed a huge difference. My friend told me that it was ok to take two per day and by 10 days, my asthma was gone. I am still on one a day and I feel fabulous. Lots of energy and absolutely no more coughing, coughing, coughing, yeah! Thanks Mikei Reishi."
"I won a 60 day supply of the Red Reishi product on CFAX Radio. At that time my good lady was just being assessed for chemo therapy. We have since begun the treatments. She is on a 21 day regime consisting of 4 cycles. She started taking the Red Reishi a week before here first session. On day 12 of the cycle she developed a fever of 38.8 degrees which required a visit the emergency room at our local hospital. Blood cultures showed her count was very low, too low in fact. On day 20 she had more blood work done in preparation for the next cycle of chemo and her blood was right back to normal. I would like to think this was the result of her taking the Red Reishi product. I have also been taking the product and find that I have much more energy. In fact, I actually feel like doing something in the evening rather than falling asleep in my big chair. We have purchased our second package of product and will continue to take it."
"I am 64 years old and I am a retired cabinetmaker. I suffered 2 strokes several years ago and my speech became seriously impaired as a result... I started taking Mikei Reishi and the results were unexpectedly fast. Within only about 2 weeks my speech ability improved. My communication is much better since then I continue taking the supplement."
"We spoke 2 weeks ago about using Red Reishi (started 7 days prior) before my last Chemo (March 12, 2007) and the fact that I seemed to have additional energy and less side affects. I can advise that, unless I am ‘dreaming’, I definitely have increased energy (walking 3 km most days and doing many chores around home which I have not done since last summer) and according to others who have seen me with my prior chemo’s I have better colour and an upbeat attitude. I had a blood test a week ago and all my counts are in the healthy normal range."
"My wife has found it helped a lot [with Fibromyalgia], she also feels more energetic. We are very pleased with the product and will continue taking it."
