REISHI mushrooms grow on noble trees, pulling nutrients from its dead host making it available to us as medicine. Used to make a natural caffeine-free tea, tonic or extract, REISHI has an earthy mild mushroom slight bitter flavour.
Our good friend hand-harvests GY REISHI fruiting body (Ganoderma tsugae variety) from Hemlock trees within the depths of the Ontarian forest. He always leaves some reishi on the trees to preserve the health of the ecosystem. Showing gratitude towards the forest, he engages in eco restoration to ensure this super ‘Queen of the Mushrooms’ stays available for future generations.
Reishi (in Japanese) or Ling Zhi (in Chinese) literally means the “Immortality Mushroom” and “Supernatural Mushroom” and “Spiritual/Divine/Sacred Plant of Longevity” and “Possessed of Soul Power”, and “Herb of Spiritual Potency”….you get the idea. Reishi is a highly revered forest medicine that has been successfully used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years and by other cultures throughout the world for over 10,000 years.
Reishi’s healing and strengthening effects on the human body are similar to its divine essence: amazing and otherworldly! As an adaptogen and immunostimulating fungus, reishi may support health by enhancing equilibrium; balancing and strengthening the immune system thereby enhancing clarity and the ability to face the challenges of life. Reishi may be an amazing ally against bacteria, viruses and other life-force draining microbes and may help fight stresses, fatigue and infections. Reishi has been known to strengthen the lungs to help eradicate asthma, chronic bronchitis and altitude sickness. It may also assist with certain cardiovascular conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Reishi may help cleanse the organs, particularly the kidneys and the liver, enhancing the degradation of toxins and free radicals and increasing the liver’s metabolic efficiency. Reishi may be an excellent candidate for augmenting chemotherapy (according to cancer researchers), AIDS, leaky-gut syndrome, Epstein-Barr, and other infectious diseases. It may also used for insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome, fatigue prevention, as a diuretic and as a laxative.
Reishi use is generally safe and has high antioxidant value. There are no negative side effects reported in available literature and clinical studies. However, very sensitive individuals may experience some detoxification symptoms such as mild digestive upset, dizziness, sore bones, and skin rashes during the initial period of intake. Use common sense caution when starting any new regime. Start slowly and increase according to the suggested dosage, listening to what your body and intuition tells you.
