Reishi mushroom, also called Lingzhi, and the "Mushroom of Immortality." In Chinese, the name Lingzhi represents a combination of spiritual potency and essence of immortality, and is regarded as the “herb of spiritual potency,” symbolizing success, wellbeing, divine power, and longevity. Reishi is used for its powerful adaptogenic qualities. Adaptogens are known for targeting the area of the body that needs it! An all-rounder, Reishi has immune-strengthening, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and neuroregenerative properties, it helps to alleviate allergies by inhibiting the release of histamine in the body, and has been used to support liver function, and fight fatigue. It has also been used to treat urinary tract, bronchitis, and respiratory infections, digestive problems and stomach ulcers, tumour growth, skin disorders, autoimmune disorders, viruses, heart disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, sleep disorders and insomnia, arthritis, and anxiety and depression, including schizophrenia. Reishi works as an ‘immune-modulator,’ and has been used to restore hormonal balance, and bring the body back to homeostasis. Although Reishi is traditionally used medicinally rather than nutritionally, Reishi also contains calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese, and vitamins C, D, K, and B-complex.
