Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is a treasure of Chinese herbal medicine. It has been used for thousands of years as a tonic and to promote longevity.
It is a soft (when fresh) polypore mushroom with a flat, red, kidney shaped top. It is also known as Ling zhi in China which translates to ‘mushroom of immortality’.
Scientists have found several key compounds within Reishi such as ganoderic acid, polysaccharides and terpenes which possess immune-supporting properties and benefits for the heart and liver.
Additionally, regular consumption of Reishi is recommended as an adaptogen, meaning that it can improve the adrenal system which is responsible for managing the body’s response to stress. This enables the body to better cope with hormone imbalances as well as strengthen the immune system.
Other conditions that may benefit from supplementation of Reishi mushroom include respiratory problems, sleep issues and general fatigue.
