The Reishi mushroom, also known as Lingzhi or Ganoderma Lucidum, is a red-coloured mushroom originating from Asia. Celebrated in traditional Chinese medicine, this mushroom is nicknamed “the king of all mushrooms” due to its association with immunity and fighting infections.
Cultivation of this mushroom dates back for over 2000 years. Naturally, the fungus grows on deciduous trees although it can be grown on hardwood logs and on sawdust. Reishi mushrooms require hot and humid climates explaining why they are largely found in Eastern Asian regions. Our organic reishi mushroom powder is grown by a specialist mushroom supplier in a remote location far from any industrial pollutants to ensure complete purity.
Packed with vitamin D2, reishi mushrooms are widely believed to contribute to overall health and immunity. In ancient China, reishi was highly sought-after among emperors as it was seen as more valuable than any jewel for ‘immortality’ properties. While we know now it may not offer complete immortality, it is certainly a must-have for anyone wishing to boost their nutritional intake.
Our organic reishi mushroom powder is highly versatile – perfect for both the mushroom lover and the mushroom hater. Try mixing a ¼ of teaspoon of this nutrient-rich powder in your morning coffee or smoothie, or enhance the flavour of stir-fries, dips, soups and bolognaises.
