Reishi Mushroom is perhaps the most beloved of all mushrooms prized in the Asian tradition. Once extremely rare and precious, Reishi mushrooms were reserved for royalty and their inner circles. It is now cultivated with superb results which means that more people than ever people can experience consuming Reishi. Traditionally Reishi is considered to nourish all 3 treasures, Jing, Chi and Shen.
Reishi is the most studied natural substance on earth and science continues to show up remarkable functions its active ingredients produce, although under EU law we are forbidden from sharing any of this wonderful research with you.
Our Reishi mushrooms are grown organically on real linden logs which is the natural growing substrate for Reishi.
Want to learn more about reishi? Listen to the interview Kate did with expert Brandon Gilbert of Hyperion Herbs, where he goes into the history of this most amazing plant. For over 3,000 years Reishi has been the most sought after substance in nature by mountain sages and by the emperors and empresses of the east. The first Chinese herbal text (Shennong's Pharmacopeia) written about 2400 years ago said that "continuous consumption of Reishi turns you into one like the immortal who never dies," hence it was known as the mushroom of immortality.
