Reishi Fruiting Body (Ling Zhi)

What is Reishi?

Reishi mushroom, native to China, is known for its fan-like appearance (and bitter taste, which means it’s not commonly found in cooking). A powerful adaptogen, known as a Superior Herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine, it’s used to nourish Heart Qi, or energy, to support sleep and strengthen Lung Qi, aiding the respiratory system and overall longevity.*

What are the benefits of Reishi?

Reishi can help with restlessness and improve sleep. Additionally, it helps to support the immune system by boosting white blood cells, which serve as the body’s first line of defense against bacteria and viruses.*

Reishi Benefits: 

  • Strengthens immunity
  • Calms anxiousness
  • Improves sleep
  • Promotes longevity

Reishi in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Reishi nourishes the blood and Qi of the Heart and helps calm the Spirit to treat insomnia, fright, palpitations, and forgetfulness. It is known to benefit the five major Yin organs of the body and is one of the most important herbs used in TCM for longevity.*

Reishi also strengthens the Lung Qi and can treat shortness of breath, cough, and wheezing due to Lung and Kidney deficiency asthma.*
