I honestly could write a book about the incredible benefits of reishi mushrooms. It’s the king of all medicinal mushrooms that’s been used in Chinese medicine for centuries. In fact,  2730BC, Emperor Shennong of China said that reishi is the most important elixir that can slow down aging and cure many diseases.

Reishi is loaded with nutrients that are able to slow down aging. Studies have found Reishi to have over 400 different compounds that include polysaccharides, steroids, fatty acids, proteins/peptides,triterpenoids, nucleotides, sterols, mannitol, and trace elements.

Reishi possesses sleep-promoting, antibacterial, antiviral, hypolipidemic, anti-fibrotic, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, chemo-preventive, antitumor, chemo and radioprotective, anti-angiogenic, anti-herpetic, antioxidative and radical-scavenging, anti-aging, hypoglycemic, estrogenic activity and anti-ulcer properties.
