Let’s Talk About Reishi (Ganoderma Lingzhi)
the “Mushroom of Immortality”
Known as the ‘queen of mushrooms,’ reishi has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for 5,000 years.1,12 It was so revered in ancient China that only royalty was allowed to use it, hence the nickname.
We use this nootropic mushroom in both our sleep and immunity gummies because it’s such a powerful adaptogen. An ‘adaptogen’ is any natural substance that helps your body adjust to physical, chemical, or biological stress and return it to the desired state of balance, or "homeostasis." Taking reishi mushrooms on a daily basis, however, is essential to reaping its benefits. They don’t work as a “spot” remedy.
