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.”
