Reishi - Fountain of Youth
The reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) - “queen of mushrooms”, an edible type of medicinal fungus that has been used for various healing abilities for thousands of years, is a true “superfood.” Also known as Ling Zhi in Chinese, these mushrooms are strongly anti-inflammatory and tied to longevity, better immune function and mental clarity.
Throughout history in holistic medicine practices, including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), reishi mushrooms have been considered to be adaptogen herb-like substances, meaning they help us deal with the negative effects of stress — such as increased inflammation, depleted energy levels, damaged blood vessels and various types of hormonal imbalances.
Because they work as an “immune modulator,” reishi mushrooms can help restore hormonal balance, bring the body back to homeostasis and regulate activity of the immune system, including fighting tumors and cancerous cells. Research shows that reishi mushrooms act like a normalizing substance, regulating various cellular functions and systems, including the endocrine (hormonal), immune, cardiovascular, central nervous and digestive systems:
Reishi mushrooms are capable of offering protection against numerous diseases or illnesses, including inflammation, fatigue, food allergies, asthma, digestive problems, skin disorders, tumors and cancer, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, viruses, heart disease, high blood pressure, sleep disorder, anxiety and depression.
