Reishi has therapeutic effects for bronchitis, asthma, liver disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, palpitations, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, nervous disorders, insomnia and debility. It has been prescribed to prevent "fatty-liver" and cirrhosis due to alcohol abuse, as well as maintaining the health of the uterus. For the emotions, Reishi is particularly effective in stress control and can reduce emotional outbursts during long-term stress and tension. Reishi mushroom also has anti-allergy, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.

*Cancer patients can benefit from this herb, as it stimulates the body's production of interleukin-1 and interlukin-2, which fight several types of *cancers. It also contains ganoderic acid, which is most beneficial for fighting liver *cancer. Reishi stimulates the maturation of macrophages (immune cells) which digest infectious bacteria and assists with chronic bronchitis. These macrophages are also effective against yeast infections.
"Our data suggest that spores and unpurified fruiting body of G.lucidum inhibit invasion of breast and prostate cancer cells by a common mechanism and could have potential therapeutic use for cancer treatment."

We use this as a base for smoothies and other tea like concoctions we make. Plus it goes nicely in our soups, rather in our 'super soups'. Teas or a water extract can be made by using 30 -40g of reishi mushroom slices in glass or ceramic cooking pot with 1 - 1.5L of water for about 30m to 1 hour on a stove at or near boiling. Sweeten or drink as is.
Please consult a herbalist for further use. As with any food or health product, we recommend to consult with a qualified health care professional beforehand to see if this product is right for you. Keep in a cool and dry location.
