Ancient Asian healers heralded Reishi mushroom for its ability to lengthen life. Reishi was used throughout Japan, Korea, Tibet and China to heal a myriad of disorders. The common name of Reishi (also known as Lingzhi mushroom in Chinese medicine) means “immortal mushroom. It’s common name in Japanese means “immortality plant.”
Studies have found that Lingzhi (Ganoderma lucidum) boosts the immune system, improves liver health, inhibits the growth of cancer and defers conditions related to mortality such as heart disease.
No wonder it was called the immortality plant. And it grows throughout the world, including in North America.
