Magical Mushroom: Reishi

It’s that time of year again! Cold and flu season. Fight back with mushrooms!

Although the common button mushroom has some benefit, the reishi variety is one of the most heavily researched mushroom. Ganoderma lucidum (the latin botanical name for the reishi mushroom) possesses immunomodulatory as well as anti-tumour properties.

Also known as “the mushroom of immortality”, this mushroom has been used as a medicinal mushroom in traditional Chinese medicine (as well as in other South East Asian countries such as Japan and Korea) for over 2,000 years.

This truly amazing mushroom can help give your immune system the kick it needs to keep colds and flus from using up your sick days .

It is because of its potent immunomodulatory and anti-tumour properties that Reishi has been included as one of the many amazing ingredients in Papillex.
