The Reishi mushroom has been used over thousands of years due to it’s mind-blowing healing capacities. It is a type of medicinal fungus which is found in Asia and is generally consumed in powder form. It is a true superfood.
These mushrooms have an array of benefits and are regarded as part of the adaptogenic herb family; meaning that they help your body deal with negative effects of stress such as depleted energy, inflammation and an array of hormonal imbalances. Studies have shown that Reishi mushrooms have antioxidant abilities which allow them to strengthen the body’s defence system against cancer, autoimmune conditions, heart disease, allergies and infections.
Some of the many benefits of Reishi Mushrooms include:
1. Anti-Cancer Properties
2. Promote heart health
3. Improved liver function
4. Balancing hormone levels
5. Stabilising blood sugar levels
6. Protecting against viruses
My favourite brand of Reishi mushrooms can be found here and is a great powder to take before heading to bed to assist with sleep and provide you with an array of health benefits.
