Reishi has been used for over 2000 years, making it one of the oldest medical mushrooms. Ganoderma has many benefits to anxiety and insomnia, it helps to fight against fatigue and lowers blood pressure. In Southern Asia countries, reishi is traditionally associated with longevity, sexual activity, wisdom and happiness. Ganoderma healing effect is on it’s flesh as well as on the mycelium and spores. The drugs are prepared on the basis of alcohol or spirits extracts. At home, dried mushrooms are grinded into a powder and consumed as a tea.
Ganoderma is suitable when a person has low energy, low immunity or a lot of mental work/tension. When a person has spent more energy than he has restored (the body is exhausted), it is important to support the body gently on a long-term period. Ganoderma or reishi is used in oncological diseases too.
