Reishi ( Ganoderma lucidum)
USE REISHI TO: Sleep better Stress less Cure seasonal allergies
Reishi has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for at least 2,000 years, with the first known written records dating from the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. to A. D .220). Reishi has the ability to boost the body’s immune system to protect it against pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Even when pathogens aren’t present, an optimally functioning immune system will exponentially increase your overall health and wellness to the point where you can witness the effects of aging being reversed— both physically and cognitively.
The compounds in reishi work externally and internally to keep you looking young by reducing dermal oxidation ( when proteins on the skin are damaged, causing wrinkles and other signs of aging) and protecting your cellular DNA and mitochondria from oxidant damage, allowing you to remain energized and alert.
Another major benefi t of reishi is how it works to achieve hormonal balance. When you have an optimally functioning hormonal system ( and surprisingly few of us do— for a slew of reasons, including the impact of environmental toxins and the overprescribing of prescription medications), your body can relax and recover during the night as it is meant to.
