Reishi Mushrooms are one of the most revered herbs in traditional Chinese Medicine. They thought that the tea would increase their wisdom and happiness. Reishi mushroom is used for boosting the immune system. Other uses include reducing stress and preventing fatigue. Reishi, known as “Ling Zhi” in China, was referred to as the “herb of spiritual potency” and the “ten thousand year mushroom.” References to reishi extract’s use go back as far as 100 B.C. Immortality Quest Reishi extract is made exclusively from wood grown fruit bodies and is a combination of both hot water and ethanol extractions. Reishi mushroom is a fungus that some people describe as “tough” and “woody” with a bitter taste. The fruiting body (above-ground part) and mycelium (filaments connecting a group of mushrooms) are used as medicine.

The benefits of Reishi Mushrooms were historically well known. Reishi is also beneficial for people suffering from asthma and other respiratory conditions because it seems to have a healing effect on the lungs. They are good for building respiratory strength and curbing a cough. They can help support health in your heart as well as being an anti-inflammatory while also supporting joints, mind and a healthy blood pressure.

So exactly what is it in reishi mushrooms that give it so many health benefits?
Scientists have learned one active ingredient is polysaccharides, which contain beta glucan. Beta glucan is known for its ability to enhance the immune system – in fact, it is one of the strongest immune system supplements there is. Another ingredient in reishi is triterpenes. The type found in reishi mushrooms is a ganoderic acid that has been proven in studies to ease the symptoms of allergies by stopping the release of histamines. It also can improve the body’s use of oxygen and help the liver function better.

The benefits of reishi mushrooms are so well known and proven that you can get them in forms that are much convenient than slicing them up and cooking with them. You can buy them dried, ground into powder (such as here) or even as an extract (See related products) In any of these forms reishi mushrooms can be used as a dietary supplement.

  • Healthy Joints.
  • Immunity.

Antioxidants
These mushrooms are very strong antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the body from the negative effects of free radicals that are formed inside the body by daily exposure to the sun, chemicals, and pollutants. Reishi Mushrooms are proven to boost the immune system, especially when taken with other antioxidant supplements.

Respiratory
Reishis are also beneficial for people suffering from asthma and other respiratory conditions because it seems to have a healing effect on the lungs. They are good for building respiratory strength and curbing a cough.

Anti-inflammatory
Reishi mushrooms have anti-inflammatory properties and are therefore used sometimes for patients who have Alzheimer’s and heart disease. This is based on the idea that inflammation plays a part in each of these conditions. The pain that accompanies other inflammatory conditions like neuralgia and arthritis may also be lessened by reishi mushroom supplements.

Heart Health
As far as benefits for the heart, reishi mushrooms can improve the flow of blood to the heart and reduce the amount of oxygen the heart consumes. It can help to lower cholesterol and some of the ingredients may help combat high blood pressure.

Q. Can I take Reishi with my other medications?
A. Yes. Reishi is a natural health supplement and there are no reported contraindications in over 2,000 years of study. However, all immune-modulating substances such as Reishi should be taken with care for patients undergoing organ transplants and using immunosuppressive drugs. It is always a good idea to consult a qualified health physician (preferably someone with experience in complementary health care) before consuming any dietary supplement.

Q. How soon can one see the results of taking Reishi?
A. Results can vary from individual to individual. Normally one can notice the benefits from taking high quality Reishi after about 10 days to two weeks. One can experience a significant difference with their overall well-being after taking Reishi continuously for two months. It is important for individuals to make Reishi a part of their daily routine for preventative health.

Q. What are the directions to take Reishi?
A. Reishi is best taken in the morning with an empty stomach. Drinking more water will also help enhance the effects of Reishi by helping the body get rid of poisonous waste. It is also recommended to take Vitamin C with Reishi as this will assist the body in absorbing the active ingredients in Reishi. Studies have shown that Vitamin C helps break down the complex polysaccarides into smaller manageable pieces that the body can intake.

Q. Should Reishi be taken only when one is ill?
A. No. Reishi can be taken at any time even when one is not ill. The primary benefit of Reishi is its ability to support and modulate the immune system to an optimal level.

Unlike other mushrooms, only Red Reishi has many important compounds such as triterpenes (ganoderic acid) that gives Reishi its unique characterisic of being bitter in taste.
