One of the original superfoods, Reishi has been recognised as a medicinal mushroom for vitality and longevity for over 2000 years. Stumbling upon wild Reishi is rare – and in the years before it was cultivated, only extremely wealthy nobility could afford it. Reishi, or ‘Lingzhi’, has been thoroughly researched for its calming effects on the body and hyped for its ability to improve sleep quality. Reishi is the most widely researched and understood of all the functional mushrooms, with Reishi research leading the way in the fungi field.
Reverently called the “Elixir of Life” and the “Mushroom of Immortality”, hundreds of polysaccharides and triterpene compounds have been identified within Reishi. These magical fungi work to strengthen and modulate the immune system, helping to regulate your mood for extra balance.
