Under the Cap - The Immune Magic of Reishi Mushrooms

As a staple in the ancient Chinese Materia Medica, reishi is a medicinal mushroom that has been used for thousands of years. Historically, this magnificent mushroom was reserved for royals as a result of its rarity and incredible benefits. This unique mushroom delivers a wide spectrum of amazing benefits as a tonic for strength and promotes longevity. It also has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, liver protective, and immunomodulating properties – just to name a few! 

The reishi mushroom is a striped, red-burgundy fungus that grows only in a warm climate with high humidity and shaded light. Historically, this selective environment contributed to the allure and rarity of the reishi mushroom. In modern times, reishi mushrooms can be grown commercially and are much more available. Even today, they are widely used to prevent and treat infections in Asian countries. The shining quality of reishi mushrooms is their ability to aid and strengthen the immune system.  

Reishi mushrooms have been shown to possess modulating effects on inflammatory mechanisms which work to strengthen and promote the response of the innate (natural) immune system. Your innate immune system is a series of natural defense mechanisms that have the capability to respond to harmful microorganisms. These defense mechanisms act to find and destroy the pathogens that make you sick – if your immune system is functioning properly! 

If you choose to supplement your nutritional regimen with the magnificent reishi mushroom, ensure that you are purchasing top quality from an honest and transparent manufacturer. To support your immune system, we recommend adding this magnificent mushroom to your daily nutritional regimen.
