 More about Reishi:

Reishi grows wild on decaying logs in Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea and the rest of the coastal regions of the Far East in densely wooded mountains with high humidity and dim light. 99% of Reishi growing in the wild in Japan are found on old stumps of plum trees. Wild Reishi Mushrooms are scarce. Out of 10,000 aged trees, perhaps 2 or 3 would have Reishi growing on them. The spores of this fan shaped mushroom have such a tough outer husk that makes germination extremely difficult and this accounts for its rarity.

The cultivating process is extremely hard making Reishi an expensive fungus. Reishi has a large, tough and thick woody body with no gills but instead pores that release their seeds (spores). All six varieties of this mushroom are in fact one species that under different environmental conditions display the six colours in full splendour – yellow (Kishiba), black (Kuroshiba), purple (Murasakishiba), blue (Aoshiba), red (Akashiba) and white (Shiroshiba). The red variety is the most commonly used and commercially cultivated.

The hard texture makes Reishi an inedible mushroom, but it is suitable as tea or extract.

The 2200 years old scripture “The Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing” is considered today the oldest book on oriental herbal medicine that offers the classification of 365 species of roots of grass, woods, furs, animals and stones in three categories. The first category, called superior, includes herbs effective for multiple diseases and mostly responsible for maintaining and restoring the body balance with no unfavourable side effects. Reishi is ranked number one of the superior medicines.

Reishi has been used in traditional oriental medicine for more than 4,000 years to treat liver disorders, hypertension, fortify the bones and tendons, diminish nervous tension, treat general fatigue and weakness, arthritis, deafness and other ailments.

The numerous studies and observations prove that Reishi has multiple benefits in a very wide range of diseases and symptoms, shows no side effects and can be consumed in high dosages and in combination with other medications.
