Long Description

Reishi mushrooms – have been revered since the dawn of modern culture. Reishi has been recognized as a medicinal mushroom for over 4000 years & its powerful effects have been documented in many ancient manuscripts - however this fantastic fungus is exceptionally rare with some texts reporting that you could only find 1 on every 10 000 plum trees in Japan. 

Traditionally, it was used in China by Taoist monks to promote calmness, improve meditative practices, as well as to attain a long & healthy life. Chinese royalty, seeking longevity, held Reishi mushroom in high esteem. Its use has become immortalized throughout Chinese culture in paintings, statues, silk tapestries, & on the robes of emperors. In traditional Chinese medicine it is listed as a superior tonic, which were among the most highly regarded of all medicines since they were considered to prolong life, prevent aging, boost qi & make the body light & limber. It is additionally regarded as a three treasure tonic, nourishing the shen, jing, & qi. In Traditional Chinese Medicine it was prescribed to remove toxins, treat cancer, rectify heart disease, liver problems, joint inflammation, ulcers. 

Thanks to modern science we now understand Reishi better than ever before, successfully having isolated 130 different polysaccharides, over 119 triterpenes along with many other phytonutrients making up one of the most complex medicines known to man, with just over 900 bioactive constituents identified thus far. This fungus consistently demonstrates a profound ability to nourish vitality, relax the nervous system, calm the mind & promote a state of relaxed focus and concentration. Over the past several decades, studies conducted worldwide have demonstrated that they are capable of offering protection against numerous diseases & illnesses. One of the most important effects of the Reishi mushroom is that it can boost and support the immune system; it can increase white blood cell count & upgrade our immune response, particularly the process of phagocytosis. Out of Reishi’s vast triterpenoids, 2 compounds in particular stand out: ganoderic & ganoderenic acids - these have shown tremendous results in treating auto immune diseases, allergies, liver function and they have also shown antioxidant qualities, which protect the body from free radical damage as well as enhance overall cell repair. 

Reishi mushrooms also have an effect on cancer cell lines - in vivo & in-vitro testing have demonstrated that compounds derived from the it have cytotoxic effects on cancer cells. Several studies demonstrate that extracts of Reishi mushrooms down-regulate VEGF & MAPK signalling, as well as induce cell cycle arrest, apoptosis & autophagy. Many randomized controlled trials also proved that cancer patients experienced improved response to treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy
