Why We Use Reishi Mushroom In Our Blends

Reishi is a type of medicinal mushroom that has been used for centuries. It is a small plant that packs a punch, from helping with weight loss to fighting cancer cells, and much much more.

Reishi is a medicinal mushroom that has been prescribed by Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctors for centuries. This medicinal mushroom is also known by the name of Ling Zhi, Lin Zi, and the mushroom of immortality. It is commonly used to boost immunity, increase energy and stamina, lower high cholesterol, and to treat the symptoms of lower urinary tract infection in males. Since it also acts as an antioxidant, it is often used to neutralise free radicals within the body, and studies have shown the benefits of Reishi in prevention and treatment of cancer. Reishi can be prescribed by a Chinese Doctor or Naturopath in different forms such as capsules, liquid extract, powders and tea blends, depending on your symptoms and condition requirements.


Alongside Reishi’s immune boosting properties is its potential to be used for calming the nervous system - thanks to a group of compounds called triterpenoids. These mood-boosting compounds have the ability to soothe your nervous system and therefore support your body in times of stress. Studies show that they may help to alleviate anxiety, ease depression and promote better sleep

If that’s not enough to make you love Reishi, it has also shown to help with wound healing and accelerate tissue repair.

Reishi is a natural remedy that our Heal’r Naturopaths and TCM Doctors have used with clients for over twenty five years. It is also one of the certified organic ingredients in our Heal’r Mix’d and Awaken’d blends.
