Tremella Mushroom in Traditional Chinese Medicine

According to legend, during the 8th century, one of the Four Beauties of Ancient China relied on Tremella mushroom to maintain her youthful, radiant complexion. In traditional Chinese medicine, Tremella is believed to promote clear, healthy skin and reduce inflammation, which also helps boost the immune system.*

Its pure white color connects it to the Lungs (each organ has a color, and white is the color of the Lungs) and the skin. It strengthens and moistens the Lungs to treat dry unproductive coughs. Extremely useful for building the strength of the Lungs and immune system after recovering from a cold or flu. 

The Lungs are closely connected to the skin in TCM, and healthy clear skin is dependent on healthy Lung qi (energy) and Yin (fluids). The Lung qi heals the skin to reduce inflammation making it clear, and Lung yin moistens the skin to prevent dryness and aging.
