Reishi, or Ling zhi is the extract of the Ganoderma lucium mushroom.
This mushroom has been used in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicines for thousands of years, who place it in the highest class of tonic medicines, those who benefit the vital life energy.
Often recommended for conditions such as:
- high blood pressure
- bronchitis and asthma
It is particularly renowned for its use in hepatitis and other diseases of the liver and for promoting longevity. Reishi is used to prevent “fatty-liver” and cirrhosis.
The Western focus on reishi is on the mushroom’s immuno-enhancing and anti-tumor activities, the exact mechanism is still unknown, but it is thought that the mycopolysaccharides contained in the cell walls may hold the key to the mushrooms medicinal properties
