Reishi Mushroom Powdered Extract
+ THE SUPERIOR PROTECTOR +
The mushroom of immortality, the Superior Protector of the Taoist tonic herbal system; reishi mushrooms is the herb to calm the mind and strengthen the heart.
Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is known throughout the Orient as the mushroom of immortality, and held in the absolute highest regard by Taoist herbalists and longevity enthusiasts around the world. It is one of the safest herbs on the planet.
Reishi is known as the primary shen (spirit) tonic in the Chinese tradition and is revered for bringing peace to the body, mind and spirit. Traditionally it is known as the Great Protector for its ability to protect and tone the cardiovascular system, cleanse the liver, upgrade the immune system and tone the bone marrow. More recent research points to reishi’s potential to restore and maintain gut health and reduce inflammation. However, it is most revered for its ability to calm the mind and strengthen the spirit, relieving anxiety and stress. For thousands of years reishi has been used in conjunction with meditation and other spiritual practices to aid the process of toning and strengthening the spirit.
Our wildcrafted reishi is harvested from its natural home in China’s Dabie mountains. Herbs exposed to wild elements embody the spirit of their homeland, and imbue those ingesting the herb with that same spirit.
In traditional Chinese Medicine, reishi is considered a spiritual herb, one of the top Taoist herbs believed to nourish our ‘Shen’ – the spiritual essence of our being. Reishi is one of the most studied herbs in the world, and is highly regarded in Eastern medicine. Western science recognises reishi as a powerful immune herb and as an adaptogen (for its ability to help us adapt to stress).
