The reishi mushroom is perhaps the most well known and revered of all medicinal mushrooms. In the far east it has been used for at least two thousand years, and probably much longer, particularly in China where its benefits were documented in the ancient Chinese text, the Divine Farmer’s Materia Medica, also know as the Shennong Ben Cao Jing.
This mushroom has so many purported benefits and has attained such legendary status, both for its therapeutic physiological effects as well as its effectiveness as a shen, or spiritual tonic herb, that its reputation as a panacea borders on the miraculous.
Reishi works like an antioxidant by intensifying the body’s free radical scavenging ability. It also protects against the effects of radiation and has anti-inflammatory properties.
The Great Protector
In China, where reishi has been held in the greatest esteem since antiquity, its distinctive shape has been depicted in paintings, wood carvings, furniture, fabric, and even architecturally, etched on the sides of buildings.
Reishi, especially when taken long term over the course of time, is renowned for its ability to promote in the user a sense of calmness as well as an increased ability to cope with and adapt more readily to the everyday stresses of life.
Called by some the ‘great protector’ and the ‘herb of good fortune’, reishi truly ranks among the humankind’s greatest herbal allies.
