Reishi Mushroom: Health Benefits for All
Today, you can get all the health benefits the Reishi mushroom has to offer easily. You can order our supplement products which contain it right on our site.

Today, we’re glad to be able to bring these products to all of the people who want them at affordable, reasonable prices.
Ancient Reishi Mushroom: For the Rich
Today, we know that Reishi mushroom has qualities that can help to boost your immune system as well as your energy. It can give you the extra energy you need to power through the day while also making sure that you’re going to be healthier for longer. Of course, thousands of years ago, they knew that, too. It’s just that only the richest people could afford it. See, the “Wild lingzhi” (as the mushroom is also known) is incredibly rare. It was rare then, even before our modern world. At the time, only the richest people could afford it. Today, that’s thankfully not an issue.
Where Reishi Comes From
There is some research that ancient Chinese aristocrats may have only begun taking Reishi mushroom because it was something that rich people did, but they quickly discovered all of its amazing health benefits and more. In time, they would discover all of the same health benefits that we know about it today. At the time, it was known as something that only grew in hard to reach areas. There was a widespread belief that this mushroom only grew on “the home of the immortals.” That was off the coast of China, in an area called “three aisles of the blest.” Today, we know that there is something special about these mushrooms, in the way that they can give you more energy as well as many other health benefits. A research developed by the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center states that Reishi mushroom stimulate the immune system, and ‘can enhance immune response in advanced-stage cancer patients’ or even be used to treat HIV and AIDS.
Reishi’s Real Name
The Chinese called Reishi mushrooms “lingzhi” because it allegedly had the “essence of immortality.” As you might imagine, that’s a pretty bold claim. The mushroom itself was seen as a symbol for longevity, as well as feeling good, the power of the divine and just success in general. That might be a bit much, but it should be pointed out that the mushroom does have quite a few health benefits. It won’t necessarily make you immortal, but it can lead you to have more energy and just improver your overall mood. We mix it in our supplements with green tea extract. That gives you a great health energy that won’t leave you with the jitters.
