Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is a type of mushroom that has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine to improve overall health and wellbeing. It is commonly known as the "mushroom of immortality" and is highly regarded for its medicinal properties.

Immune system support
Reishi mushroom is known to boost the immune system, helping to fight off infections and diseases. It contains beta-glucans, which stimulate the immune system by activating immune cells such as macrophages and natural killer cells (NK cells) (1).

Anti-inflammatory properties
Reishi mushroom has been shown to have potent anti-inflammatory properties. It contains triterpenes, which have been shown to inhibit inflammation by blocking the production of inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes (1).

Cognitive function
Reishi mushroom has been shown to have beneficial effects on cognitive function. It contains polysaccharides, which have been shown to improve memory and learning ability by promoting the growth of new neurons and synapses in the brain (2).

Anti-anxiety and anti-depressant effects
Reishi mushroom has been shown to have anti-anxiety and anti-depressant effects. It contains triterpenes, which have been shown to have a calming effect on the brain by regulating the levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine (3).

Cardiovascular health
Reishi mushroom has been shown to have beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system. It has been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels, and improve blood flow, all of which contribute to better heart health. (4)
