Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is one of the most beloved of all adaptagens and ‘superfoods’ around the world. The term, Ling Zhi, or “The Mushroom of Spiritual Potency” was introduced into traditional Chinese medicine, thousands of years ago. The ancient Chinese claimed that Reishi promotes calmness, centeredness, balance, inner awareness, and inner strength. They have used it to improve meditative practices and to protect the body, mind, and spirit so that the adept could attain both a long and healthy life. Red reishi is also said to reduce fatigue, improve sleep and possibly helping to lower blood pressure. Current research indicates the red reishi mushroom is rich in antioxidants, polysaccharides, amino acids, polypeptides, vitamins and minerals. The abundance of polysaccharides, or simple sugars, in Reishi makes it excellent support for the immune system, and is considered a great botanical for a wide array of conditions.
