Organic Reishi Mushroom powder. Traditional Chinese Medicine physicians adopted the phrase “the mushroom of immortality” to describe the all-encompassing health support that they deemed reishi could provide . Reishi was revered for its medicinal properties in ancient China, yet it was relatively rare in nature, so for a long time, it was reserved exclusively for nobility. Ancient Chinese herbalists called reishi Lingzhi (灵芝) meaning “herb of spiritual potency. The famous Emperor Yan, the first in the line of ancient China’s rulers, is the founding father of the farming practices and tools that became the foundation of China’s agriculture. He is the author of the “bible” of medicinal plants: Shennong Ben Cao Jing (a.k.a. Materia Medica) This is what he “If eaten customarily, it makes your body light and young, lengthens your life, and turns you into one like the immortal who never dies.”
Reishi Mushrooms contain more than 400 active biomolecules, this includes beta-glucans and triterpenoids, compounds that can lower blood sugar and blood pressure levels, reducing your risk of diabetes and heart disease.
