Benefits of Reishi
After finding out that there are over 1.5 million strains of mushrooms on earth, most people become overwhelmed on where to begin on their medicinal mushroom journey. Our recommendation for a great medicinal mushroom starting point is the esteemed Mushroom of Immortality, better known as Reishi. This annual polypore mushroom has been used as a super herb supporting systems of the body for over 2,000 years in China and Japan. So, sit back and let us tell you a few good reasons you should come on into WON and check out our Reishi selection!
Amazing Sleep Tonic
Reishi helps our inner systems chill out. While not having the reaction like let’s say Kava, Reishi is non-sedative. When consumed as a tonic, small daily doses, Reishi may help to support the body’s sleep cycles. Our WON staff has found that daily use seems to give the best boost to your sleeping cycles.
Reishi is used in herbal medicine as an adaptogen. Adaptogens are considered regulators and they support the stress response system in our bodies. In doing so, adaptogens help to modify and regulate hormone production and flow helping our body adapt to stress. Reishi can be taken daily as a tonic for long term use. This grounding mushroom helps you chill out and adapt to all of life’s good and bad stresses.
Optimum Immune Support
Reishi may also help support your immune system. It has many polysaccharides, antioxidant properties, and beta glucans that can help with immune function. Reishi has the ability to educate the immune system, Reishi is the ultimate immune modulator! If your immune system is compromised Reishi can provide an amazing boost.
How Reishi Tastes
Most people find that Reishi tastes woody or earthy and slightly bitter. Many health foodies will know that the most bitter foods are often the ones that are best for us. In fact, properly extracted fruiting bodies of Reishi will be much more bitter than mycelium products, which often taste like rice. The flavor of Reishi will grow on you as you fully experience the benefits unfold in your life.
