About Reishi
History

In China, the mushroom known as reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) or "lingzhi" has been called “God's Herb” for over 2000 years. Because of reishi's reputation for being effective in treating a wide range of ailments, Chinese emperors throughout history has ordered their servants to search for reishi in the wild. They believed the consumption of reishi would grant them eternal youth and greatly improved health. As the mushroom was rare, it was only reserved for royalty and wealthy individuals.

In the original pharmacopeia of Oriental medical science, “Compendium of Materia Medica”, which contains hundreds of natural medicine the Chinese have used for thousands of years, celebrated physician and naturalist Li Shi Zhen (1518~1593) described the benefits of Reishi:

It benefits the life energy, or “qi” of the heart, repairing the chest area and benefiting those with a knotted and tight chest. Taken over a long period of time, agility of the body will not cease, and the years are lengthened to those of the Immortal Fairies.

Species and Development:

It was not until the late 20th century through the diligent cultivation by the Japanese, red reishi, the once extremely rare plant, was made widely available to the general public.

Among the six kinds of reishi species that are known to benefit health, "red" reishi have demonstrated the most significant health-enhancing effects and are most widely used in the global health supplement market today.

Research has shown that the health-enhancing properties of red reishi are strongest when the plant is mature, a state that is almost impossible to find in the wild due to the unstable environmental conditions that exist in its natural habitat.

As a result, the highest quality of red reishi products use mushrooms that have been naturally cultivated in greenhouses, as opposed to other inferior and potentially hazardous methods of growing reishi using glass bottles or plastic bags.
