Reishi Mushroom Uses

Scientific research into the compounds responsible for Reishi mushroom activity began in the 1970’s in China and Japan. Scientists discovered highly active beta-(1>3)-glucans with the ability to potentiate innate immunity by activating immune cells. Also discovered were secondary metabolites called triterpenoids which were present in significant amounts and sets Reishi apart from all the other medicinal mushrooms.

These mushrooms are very strong antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the body from the negative effects of free radicals that are formed inside the body by daily exposure to the sun, chemicals, and pollutants.

    Resihi great to boost health & immunity/Cancer fighter

    Posted by April's Mom on 19th Dec 2016

    I love this product and put it in our coffee and soups since it needs to be heated for a bit before the human digestive tract can utilize it. It helps ward off flu's and colds and alleviates my daughter's (and my own) inflammatory issues we have since contracting Lyme disease as a result of our unfortunate move to the east coast.

    It also helps fight cancer! Thank you Spirit of Health!
