The Herbal Mushroom:
Traditionally known for it’s miraculous health benefits, the Reishi mushroom is an ancient herbal mushroom. Commonly known as Lingzhi or Ganoderma Lucidrum. It is found growing naturally on plum trees. The Reishi mushroom is traditionally well-known for its anti-tumour, blood pressure lowering and balancing of the immune system. In ancient records it is called the “Mushroom of Immortality” and the “Heavenly Herb”. It has no known side effects. The only side effects result from what is added to the Reishi products. This demands a wise care to research and hunt out only pristine good health products. I have used this “Mushroom of Immortality” for over 12 years and I remain very particular about the quality I get. I take an excellent quality of Reishi tablet,three times daily, as well as a Reishi drink, three to five times daily. This may seem a lot, but I have built it up over time. When I don’t have my Reishi-fix, then I feel tired or become victim to “bags” etc. A busy lifestyle, along with many long haul flights encased in germy company at close quarters on planes, means I need to be attentive to my immune system. As a teenager I was diagnosed with a fatty tumour and have always been attentive to that health issue. A healthy choice of quality Reishi has continued to be an anti-tumour aid for me over many years.
As a teenager, my mother obtained an anti-tumour soup mix substance that she made up for me. It turned out to be a mix of herbs including Ganoderma (Reishi) that she got with huge recommendations from one of my grandfather’s friends. In traditional Chinese medicine, this mushroom was used as a medicinal soup in order to ensure the availability of the active Ganoderma ingredients. Today it is possible to get excellent sources of Reishi products that have used a method of extraction under high pressure to make the active ingredients available in soup mix, tablets, capsules and granular mix.
Quality Is Important:
Over the years I have found the many different types of Reishi products can vary, in both quality and performance. In fact, I was given the pet-name of Princess Reishi because I was so fussy about the quality, and mix, I use. Be sure that the Reishi you use is of good quality.
Benefits For Your Body:
My mother’s brew of anti-tumour soup had served its purpose. However we also noticed that when I had mamma’s brew, I had much improved concentration before exams. All my friends at university were smoking to cope with exam stress whilst I simply stuck to my thermos of Reishi soup with Ginseng and the Australian favourite of “Vegemite” to take to my exams.
Listed below are some of the other benefits of Reishi that I’ve found through intensive internet research:
LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE
AIDS BONE MARROW
BALANCE BLOODS SUGAR
PREVENTION OF FATIGUE RELATED PROBLEMS
DE STRESS AID
Significant good health results can usually be expected to start being noticed after three weeks of daily use of Reishi. Building up a momentum of increasing good health takes time with continual use but our health is worth it. I can not emphasise enough to make sure the Reishi you use is of good quality.
