The Magic Mushroom

Red Reishi, The Asian Medicinal

Red reishi has been called the magic mushroom, and I suppose in a sense it is, just not the way this phrase usually means.
Red reishi, or mikei as it is also called, or even ganoderma lucidum, is a very red mushroom fungus.

Red reishi brings with it many health benefits, and these go as far as to around 2700 B.C, both in China and in Japan. It is considered a medicinal staple in both these countries and has been that for all these centuries. In fact, it is stated in Asian History that the good health of the Aristocracy is because they ingested Red Reishi.

It is however not easy finding these mushrooms growing wild in woods. Pretty well it was only the ruling and high class citizens that had access to these mushrooms. Hence, these mushrooms were often referred to as a King's mushroom.

Coming into current times, the stress and bad diet and today's lifestyles are wreaking havoc with our health. Even our emotional and mental health.
Even though this mushroom does not have the ability to fight the disease itself, red reishi does give you the capability to enable your body to fight disease. Being pro-active in your own care against disease is extremely important.

It is believed that this mushroom will help you to build up your body, versus breaking down your body. This can help bring a healthy balance to your health.
Red reishi, has many names in Asia, and is also known as ganoderma. Many have experienced the benefits of this red mushroom.

And don't forget to always talk to a health professional about adding herbs and remedies into your lifestyle.

Red Reishi As A Fungus

In East Asia,in China as I have mentioned before, Red Reishi / Ganoderma Lucidum is, and has been for thousands of years, used as a medicinal mushroom. This makes it one of the very oldest mushrooms that is known to have been used medicinally.

A fungus, or plural, funguses, is a member of the large group of eukaryotic organisms. These include microorganisms such as: yeasts, and molds (also known as moulds) and the more familiar mushrooms.

These are organisms and are classified as a Fungi. These are separate from plants, and animals, protists and bacteria.

These funguses have been used for a long time as a direct source of food. These are known as mushrooms and truffles, a leavening agent for bread, and also in the fermentation of various foods like that wonderful wine, and beer, also in soy sauce.
And, since in the 1940s, fungi have also been used to make antibiotics, now known to be a life safer!

There is a very in-depth article on Wikipedia that you might want to read.
