Called the "Herb
of Deathlessness" in the past, the red mushroom has more than 4,000 years of history. As
far back as the First Emperor of Chin, the Great Emperor Chin has fallen in love with the mushroom
vaunted ability to make any one that feeds on it... IMMORTAL.
Oriental medicinal arts revered this mushroom as sacred. Its so-called magical powers made it a well-sought after herb. Expensive and rare, the red mushroom was excluded from the masses for years and became the exclusive use of royalty. The monicker : the "HERB OF THE KINGS" was aptly applied to this royal herb.
For centuries, traditional healers have classified the red Reishi as "superior" in its ability to heal and its flexible application. In China, the red mushroom is called LING ZHI : the gift of the divine to energize the CHI. In Japan it is known as REISHI: the spirit that plants give.
Botanists gave it the name, Ganoderma lucidum to reflect the bright and shiny appearance and texture of the mushroom's fruit body. A fungus or polypore by classification, Reishi is a wood decomposer and draws all the energy of dying trees in the forrest.
Today, REISHI is
one of the most well-studied medicinal herbs and is a main-stay in many
alternative therapeutic programs.
Reishi is Asia's NUMBER ONE medicinal herb!
"The King of the Herbs... the Herb of the Kings."
