Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is currently recognized as one of the most important and beneficial tonic herbs in the world. Reishi has been the most revered herb in Asia since pre-historic times. Sages and emperors sought this herb to confer health, well being, good fortune and wisdom. Reishi is now widely cultivated, but Wild Reishi is very rare. It is not possible to collect very large amounts of it. It is special because it is totally natural. In the wild, it is a superb collector of Qi and Shen energy. It is called the “Herb of Spiritual Potency” and the “Mushroom of Immortality.”
Reishi has only been cultivated for the past thirty years. Originally, of course, Reishi was collected in the wild. The historical records only discuss Wild Reishi.

Reishi mushroom is arguably the greatest tonic herb on earth. It is certainly the most revered herbal substance in Asia, ranking with Ginseng as the elite substance for the attainment of radiant health, longevity and spiritual attainment. It has maintained that position for at least 2000 years, and its reputation and value are only increasing. Since Reishi has been known to have many functions, it has been the subject of a great deal of research in recent years. It is extremely safe and non-toxic.
Taoists have continuously 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 and spiritual “immortality” (an enlightened state).
The Red Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is a superb anti-stress herb. Throughout history it has been used to bring balance into the lives of people who needed help in this department, and that means most everyone. Deep in antiquity, it was routinely used by mountain hermits, monks, Taoist adepts and spiritual seekers throughout Asia because it was believed to help calm the mind, ease tension, strengthen the nerves, strengthen memory, sharpen concentration, improve focus, build will power and, as a result, help build wisdom. That is why it was called the "Mushroom of Spiritual Potency" by these seekers. The people of Asia have never lost their faith in Reishi. They believe more than ever in Reishi's power to improve the quality of life by improving the inner life of a human being.
Reishi has traditionally been used as an anti-aging herb. It is highly protective and improves how most people handle stress.
All the scientific validation only explains the physical nature of Reishi, but it is the profound ability of Reishi to improve one's life on every plane that makes it so miraculous. Reishi is indeed calming and centering. Everyone who takes Reishi notices the peacefulness that seems to accompany its use. And Reishi seems to be cumulative, gradually strengthening the nerves and actually changing how we perceive life.
Reishi is now used as a general tonic to help develop energy, and to support digestion.
Reishi supports normal healthy immune functions. It is an immune "modulator" --- that is, it helps to modulate and fine tune the immune system. Our immune system is a virtually miraculous network of activities designed over millions of years.
Chemical constituents known as Reishi polysaccharides play an important role in supporting the body's overall immune functions. Reishi does not "stimulate" the immune system. It regulates it. And that is what makes Reishi so precious. Ganoderic acids promote proper oxygen utilization and support liver functions. Ganoderic acids are also antioxidant free-radical scavengers.
Reishi has been found to modulate the activities of nuclear factor kappa B (NFkB), a transcription factor found in all of our cells. Reishi is a dietary supplement that supports normal functions of the immune system.
Reishi is widely used in Asia to support normal cardiovascular functions.*
