What you need to know about Reishi extract for the heart*

Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is known by many names, including “mushroom of immortality” and “10,000-year mushroom”. In China, it is called Lingzhi, which translates to “spiritual plant”. This revered mushroom has over 2,000 years of recorded use in China and Japan. Reishi is a bright, shiny, burgundy colored, kidney shaped mushroom. It often has a white outer edge that tapers as it matures. Its impressive fruiting body is often found growing on dead trees in dense forests around the world, including China, North America, and even the Amazon rainforest. They favor chestnut, hemlock, oak and other broadleaved trees.

Reishi is traditionally brewed as a tea. It is not usually eaten as is because of its hard, woody texture, which lends itself best to strong teas, broths and extracts. In ancient China, Reishi was reserved for royalty. Its distinctive shape was often carved into doorways and arches throughout the emperor’s residences, as a symbol of good health and longevity.* We are lucky to have easy access to this beloved mushroom today!
