Reishi mushroom is a gorgeous and powerful medicinal mushroom. Reishi has long been respected as a healer amongst the forest across the planet. Reishi grows horizontally and resembles an antler at first and, when it is time, will fan the tip of the antler out to create the ‘cap’ of the mushroom. All exempt the rim of the Reishi mushroom will change color to shades of yellow, orange, but mostly red. It will have a hardened surface that is glossy and deserves a second look.
Healers have long recognized the Reishi mushroom benefits and how reishi can assist the immune system. Today it is understood that the benefits of Reishi mushroom include powerful compounds that are antitumor, antibacterial and anti-viral. These compounds and others are immunostimulating and some compounds even enhance natural killer cells ability to fight cancerous cell proliferation. Reishi mushroom has the potential to increase DNA and RNA synthesis, lower blood pressure, and enhance bone marrow growth. Triterpenes contained in reishi are anti-inflammatory and antitussive. It also is an antioxidant and therefore has the ability to scavenge free radicals.
