Meet the Fungi Family! Reishi Edition

Welcome to our Wellness Wanderings, where we help Navigate you to Vitality! In this blog, we will introduce you to the "Mushroom of immortality" - Reishi! 

In Chinese and Korean culture, the name "lingzhi" represents a combination of spiritual potency and the essence of immortality. Often regarded as the "herb of spiritual potency," Reishi symbolises success, well-being, divine power, and longevity. Among cultivated mushrooms, Ganoderma lucidum, commonly known as Reishi, stands out for its remarkable pharmaceutical value rather than its nutritional content.

Reishi has garnered attention for its potential health benefits, supported by scientific research and traditional use. A study by Solomon P. Wasser from the Institute of Evolution at the University of Haifa, Israel, highlights the pharmacological effects of Reishi, including:

  • Immuno-modulating properties
  • Anti-atherosclerotic effects
  • Anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties
  • Chemo-preventive and anti-tumor activity
  • Radio-protective effects
  • Sleep-promoting properties
  • Antibacterial and antiviral activity, including anti-HIV effects
  • Hypo-lipidemic and anti-fibrotic effects
  • Hepato-protective properties
  • Anti-oxidative and radical-scavenging activity
  • Anti-aging and hypo-glycemic effects
  • Anti-ulcer properties

After reading this blog, you may just be tempted to scoff as much Reishi as humanely possible, in place of your traditional evening treat... We feel the same too!

However, Reishi mushrooms are not quite considered an 'edible' or easy to eat delicacy due to their tough nature. 

Fortunately, we offer Reishi in both powdered, as well as capsule format. 😄 Feel free to use our code "REISHIRUSH" for 15% off any Reishi product!
