Reishi mushrooms growing.

Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is a large, dark mushroom with a glossy exterior and a woody texture that is renown in Eastern medicine as the “herb of spiritual potency,” symbolizing success, well-being, divine power, and longevity. Reishi is celebrated in ancient Chinese texts for its antiaging effects and ability to enhance vital energy, strengthen cardiac function and increase memory and modern studies attest to its ability to modulate the immune system, support liver function and protect against cancer. Reishi is used build strength and stamina, treat viral and bacterial infections and improve sleep and quality of life [28].
