What are Reishi Mushrooms?
Reishi mushrooms are one of the oldest varieties of mushrooms known to have been used in traditional wellness practices. Also sometimes referred to as lingzhi mushrooms, they have been used in Chinese health practices for over 2,000 years.** They are polypore mushrooms that are corky and flat with a red varnished cap. Unlike some varieties of mushrooms, reishi mushrooms gills on its underside and releases its spores through white to dull brown pores located underneath its cap.
Mushrooms contain compounds such as Polysaccharides that have long been thought to help promote overall health and wellness.** Reishi mushrooms, in particular, contain compounds such as fungal proteins, which are believed to support immune health.**
Considered by many to be too bitter for culinary use, reishi mushrooms are frequently prepared as an extract.
