Reishi, a medicinal mushroom, can also be known as the LingZhi mushroom; in Vietnamese this translates to the “supernatural mushroom”. First recorded in the Han dynasty, (206 BC - 9 AD), it comprises Ling: “spirit, spiritual, soul, miraculous, sacred, divine, mysterious, efficacious, effective”, and Zhi: “plant of longevity, fungus, seed, branch, mushroom, excrescence”.
Reishi is gentle yet powerful, and works as an adaptogenic herb to support and balance the endocrine and hormonal systems in your body.
It is a mushroom with a name that has a history of over 2 000 years and has spiritually activating properties that allow it to work with your body's hormones.
In Japan, the government body has officially listed Reishi mushrooms as a treatment for Cancer. Reishi’s effects on the hormonal system are legendary; hormones are the ‘molecules of consciousness’ that control mood, perceptions, sleep cycles, and the awareness connection to reality. Reishi works to balance the body’s many glands and organs steadily over time making it the perfect boost to use daily.
