Reishi / Ling Zhi
Why we love it
Reishi can help with restlessness, insomnia, and hot flashes, and is also great for strengthening the liver and supporting the adrenals.
How it Heals
In Chinese Medicine, Reishi nourishes blood and calms the spirit while also tonifying lung Qi, transforming phlegm and stopping coughing + wheezing.
In Western terms, Reishi is considered to be a potent antioxidant. Its Triterpenes offer protection against viruses and fungal and microbial infections, which can lead to better digestion and absorption of nutrients, resulting in a healthy gut. Its powerful anti-inflammatory effects improve liver function and decrease the symptoms of allergies.
Fun fact: In Chinese medicine, Reishi mushroom was known as the "Medicine of Kings," as one of its earliest known uses was as a special tonic for emperors seeking immortality.
How we use it
“One of the main reasons I love Reishi is its ability to guide the body to a peaceful state of balance. Most TCM principles refer to Reishi as a Shen tonic, which loosely translates to a herb that nourishes the spirit. Additionally, adding Reishi to your night-time routine can help promote peaceful sleep.”
