Reishi Mushroom Benefits
Reishi Mushroom Summary
Reishi is a polypore mushroom that grows on trees. The Greek and Latin name of Ganoderma Lucidium refers to the shiny, or glossy, skin.
Red Reishi Mushroom is a holistic calming tonic that was once thought to be the “Mushroom or Immortality” and may have been consumed up to 5,000 years ago by the Shennong, the Legendary Divine Farmer. An ancient spiritual cultivation practice known as Taoism considered it the as the “Elixir of Life”.
The native Japanese are less forgiving about the timeframe that this mushroom imbues upon us as their naming, mannentake, means “10,000 year mushroom”.
To the Chinese it is known as Ling Zhi, translated as “divine fungus” or “mushroom of spiritual potency” reflecting their belief in its ability to invoke spiritual powers within us and therefore launched expeditions to seek out its rare wild locations by the ancient divine emperors.
This varnished mushroom is a polypore, which means that it grows on trees. After a rainfall it absorbs the water within the wood of its decaying host tree stump and becomes spongy and bendable. It was once thought that it would “absorb the earthly vapors and to leave a heavenly atmosphere”. Indeed this illusion is visually true, when after a rain, one may stroll through the forest as the sun strikes its brilliant wet surface. As it warms one can see this “heavenly mist” envelope its space. Once it dries, Reishi becomes as tough and woody as its host tree, whereupon it may be collected and consumed as a tonic for longevity and greater well-being.

Benefits of Reishi Mushroom?
Although there are hundreds of constituents found within the fruiting body and mycelium of this medicinal mushroom, a few have been studied at length and account for many of the traditionally known actions of this precious tonic. Foremost, this mushroom is a very potent antioxidant, of which peptidoglycans, the best studied version Ganoderma Lucidium Peptide, protect our inner worlds from the oxidative damage of free-radicals, stress and environmental toxins. These constituents have shown protection down to the cellular level, including mitochondria and DNA.

Once known as Ganoderic Acids, these bitter tasting triterpenes are responsible for many of the actions found within this tonic. Reishi is capable of modulating our immune systems, by complex polysaccharides, known as beta-glucans, that stimulate normal killer cells.
The combination of these bio-active constituents relax tense muscles thereby boosting blood circulation throughout the chest and joints. This relaxation effect also occurs in lung tissue and coupled with the actions of triterpenes opens our lungs up for deeper breathing. Better blood and oxygen flow to the brain improves mental clarity and helps to reduce scattered feelings and thoughts
These numerous polysaccharides and triterpenes act as potent antioxidants and are immunomodulating. Additionally they may also work on the nuclear-factor Kappa B pathway.
Reishi is safe and non-toxic according to numerous studies and is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the USFDA.

Reishi Mushroom Dosage
For best results hold the extract liquid under the tongue for 60-90 seconds and then swallow the rest of the extract. This allows many of the constituents to bypass digestion and enter the body through the mouth. It also better promotes the immediate effects.
Being based upon studies that show efficacy and the numerous textbooks concerning Reishi mushroom, 2,000 to 12,000 milligrams daily is the recommended dosage. This is 2-12 droppers a day. One may take 2-5 droppers for immediate benefit and depending on individuality and stress levels may need to take a larger dose to achieve effects and results.
Many benefits of adaptogens come from consistent continued use over a period of time – we believe low doses taken over the course of 14 - 90 days to be a good time-frame concerning a course of supplementation.
