Reishi mushrooms are considered an "Immortal Tonic" in Traditional Chinese Medicine, where they are used to strengthen qi and blood. Reishi continues to be viewed as an all-around beneficial medicine for a host of concerns, including inflammation, blood sugar balance, immune response, and liver activity.* Reishi contains antioxidants and polysaccharides, and is the subject of ongoing research. It may be consumed as a tea when boiled (a decoction).
The mushroom grows naturally deep in the forest amidst the cool, damp air, usually on fallen and rotting logs. However, demand for reishi has meant that the mushroom has been cultivated in multiple continents. Our reishi mushrooms come to us from China. The Reishi Mushroom that we offer has undergone strict quality assurance testing in order to ensure correct botanical identification, as well as specific tests for detection of coliform, e.coli and salmonella spp, for your safety.
