The name reishi means “divine” in Japanese. It has also been known as the “10,000-year mushroom”, the “tree of life mushroom;” and the “supernatural mushroom.”
It is an immune system modulator, so it can both strengthen the body’s natural defenses or “down-regulate” overactive response in people with autoimmune disorders. It is used to calm the consciousness and bring upon emotional balance, and to help soothe insomnia, nightmares, sleeplessness, moodiness, poor memory and anxiety. The mushroom is also effective for improving cardiovascular function and its anti-inflammatory actions may benefit people with asthma.
