Updated on January 6, 2016

Reishi Mushroom

Reishi Mushroom...It is the most widely used medicinal mushroom in the world. Their scientific name is Ganoderma lucidum. In Chinese Medicine, reishi mushrooms are known as ling zhi, which means spiritual plant as the Chinese herb believe is healing the person's body.

The Latin name Ganoderma means shiny skin, which describes the reddish brown caps of the mushrooms. Reishi mushrooms are kidney-shaped and grow to 8 in (20 cm) or more in diameter. They grow in moist and temperate forest areas of Asia, Europe, South America, and the United States. Reishi mushrooms typically attach themselves to trees, particularly oak and plum trees.

For centuries, this mushroom is claimed as "King of Herbs" by herbal practitioners in China and Japan for its efficacy in the maintenance or improvement of general well-being. This mushroom has been listed as a Chinese herb and classified as a superior herb dating back to 2800 BC.

Ganoderma contains more than 200 active elements which can be categorized as water soluble, organic soluble and volatile compounds. The major elements found are Polysaccharide, Adenosine and Triterpenoids, each having their own medicinal effects.
