For thousands of years, the Red Reishi mushroom is a rare and genuine “superfood used for various healing abilities.” They are one of the oldest mushrooms known for its therapeutic uses. Red Reishi mushrooms help fight against inflammation and connected to longevity, stronger immune system and mental clarity — which is why they are named the “King of Mushrooms”.
They represent a mix of “spiritual potency and essence of immortality”, which no doubt, creates an impression of a proverbial fountain of youth.
In the history of holistic medicine, including Traditional Chinese Medicine, Reishi mushrooms support the immune system and are adaptogenic; meaning they help deal with the effects of stress. That includes the increase of inflammation, depleting energy levels, and various types of hormonal imbalances. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, fully grown Reishi mushrooms are dried, sliced, boiled in hot water, then steeped to make a healing remedy.
Today, Reishi products out on the market use a newer processing technique where the mushrooms are boiled multiple times at high pressure, which allows the active ingredients to be extracted to make a tincture. 1 Over the past several decades, various studies conducted in Japan, China, U.S.A., and the U.K., demonstrated that Reishi mushrooms can protect against numerous diseases or illnesses 1, including:
- frequent infections (urinary tract, bronchitis, respiratory infections, etc.);
- liver disease;
- food allergies and asthma;
- digestive problems, stomach ulcers and leaky gut syndrome;
- skin disorders;
- autoimmune disorders;
- heart disease, hypertension, high blood pressure and high cholesterol;
- sleep disorders and insomnia; and
- anxiety and depression;
Reishi mushrooms work as an “immune modulator”; therefore, they can help restore hormonal balance, restore the body back to homeostasis and regulate the activity of the immune system. Research shows that they act as a normalizing substance. It controls various cellular functions including the endocrine (hormonal), digestive, cardiovascular, immune, and central nervous systems. They are capable of doing so much for our health, unlike other medications, they are non-toxic and hardly produces any side effects. People who take these medicinal mushrooms notice an improvement in their energy levels, mental proficiency and moods while experiencing a decrease of health issues such as body aches, allergies, infections and digestive problems.
So, what’s the secret of their healing potential? It comes from the various active ingredients that the Reishi mushroom has. It includes complex sugars (beta-glucans) that plant sterols to act as precursors to hormones, fight against acidic substances called triterpenes, which turns off the body’s response to allergies and polysaccharides which reduce the development of cancer cells; which makes Reishi an ideal natural cancer treatment and prevention of heart disease.
