Reishi is known as Ling Zhi in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Reishi has been used medicinally in Japan and China for over 2,000 years and thus making it the oldest mushroom known to have been used as medicine. Since ancient times, the Reishi mushroom was reserved for emperors and royalties. Reishi has been revered as nature's rarest and most beneficial herb. Like He Shou Wu, in the oldest and most famous medical text on Oriental herbal medicine, Reishi is listed in the Superior category of medicines, and is in fact ranked as the number one herb.
The Reishi mushroom is found in nature on plum trees. However, it is extremely rare and almost impossible to find in this manner. For this reason, it was deemed as priceless and only consumed by royalty in China and Japan for thousands of years. In the early 1970s, Japanese researchers discovered a method for cultivating Reishi on a mass scale. Now Red Reishi is readily available and can be found cultivated commerically in Japan, China, the US, and other parts of Asia.
It is non-toxic and can be taken daily without producing any side effects.
Like aloe vera, it is a source of polysaccharides. There are no known harmful side-effects of consuming reishi on a daily basis.
Jing Herbs, which has its headquarters in Los Angeles, California, is a formulator and manufacturer of the finest and most authentic tonic herb formulas available in the world. “Jing” was chosen as the company name from ancient Taoist text simply because it means the source, the foundation, the primal “essence” of human beings.
The company was founded and incorporated by George J. Lamoureux on 02-02-2002. With a master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture from the prestigious Yo San University and an extensive background in clinical and tonic herbalism, George Lamoureux is considered one of the world’s top authorities of Taoist tonic herbalism, health, longevity, and nutrition.
George Lamoureux (founder of Jing Herbs) says, "(Herbalism) has become much too serious for a lot of people, that's not what it's meant to be. Herbalism can be a lot of fun, and it can really bring joy to your life. Don't get so stuck on dosages - play with it, experiment with it, see where it takes you. Sometimes you will make mistakes, it's not a bad thing. Lighten up a bit about it.."
Let’s face it. We know what needs to be done to be healthy and happy. Exercise. Eat right. Meditate more often. Take long walks in nature. Relax more often. But the truth is that life gets in the way of doing all those things we would like to do on a regular basis.
You need three elements – Vitalized Energy, Reduced Stress, and Increased Adaptability.
You’re probably already familiar with the word “Qi,” that loosely translates as “Energy.” Qi is also known as the second Treasure in the “Three Treasures” of Traditional Chinese Medicine and philosophy. The first Treasure is known as “Jing” or “Essence,” and the third Treasure is known as “Shen” or “Spirit.” Together, these Three Treasures form the foundation of health and longevity. Jing is a deep source of energy is meant to last us a lifetime and forms our basic constitution. Qi is the day-to-day energy we derive from the foods we eat and the air we breathe. Shen is our spiritual, emotional, and mental well-being; it is our connection to our higher selves, and that which makes us fully realized human beings. To be truly successful, you must have all Three Treasures protected, nourished, and balanced.
The only true state of health is perfect adaptability and capacity to manage the unrelenting physical, biological, emotional, and environmental stressors that we have to endure. This kind of stress requires assistance. The ancient sages and herbalist long ago discovered the power of herbs for maintaining homeostasis, and science is now backing that up. Assure your success in the face of life’s challenges with Jing Herbs.
In the face of domestic concerns over the adulteration of foods and botanical materials coming from China, Jing Herbs continues to raise the bar on quality, purity, and safety.
At Jing Herbs, we sincerely want consumers to be able to experience and benefit from the vast bounty of the herbs that grow in China, and the 5,000 years of traditional wisdom that has brought the herbal industry to its current position of prominence there. In every way possible, we strive to produce products that achieve that goal, while working to dispel the myth that herbal ingredients from processors in China are of unknown quality. We at Jing Herbs are proud to stand 100% behind the quality, purity, and safety of our products.
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.
