Reishi Mushroom or ‘Lingzhi’ as it’s called in China, is a fascinating fungus that grows on the base of deciduous trees in hot and humid locations. Shaped like a saucer, it has a glossy exterior and is often red in colour.
It is thought that Reishi Mushrooms were first discovered by Chinese healers more than 2000 years ago in the Changbai Mountains. Ancient texts revere the mushroom as an elixir of immortality and contained secret locations where the fungus was believed to grow.
Reishi mushrooms are considered a source of luck and symbol of healing and wellness in Chinese culture.
Our Reishi Mushroom Powder is packed full of various vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It also contains several molecules including triterpenoids, peptidoglycans and polysaccharides, which explain its medicinal quality.
Polysaccharides -Reishi mushrooms contain a high concentration of prebiotic polysaccharides. These are long complex chains of carbohydrate molecules that store energy, send cellular information and support the cells and tissue.
Beta-Glucans -The sugars found in Reishi mushrooms have been found to promote the growth of probiotic bacteria and improve their resilience.
