Reishi, also known as Ganoderma Lingzhi, is a polypore fungus that belongs to the genus Ganoderma. Externally red and kidney-shaped cap, it hosts a distinct fan-like appearance. This mushroom grows on hardwood, such as oak trees, in warmer regions. Reishi can be found growing in Asia, the South Pacific, Southern Europe, and the United States.
Reishi has many physical health benefits. Not only is it good for your body, but it is also good for the mind. This medicinal mushroom is an adaptogen, which is basically a holistic substance that helps individuals when it comes to managing stress levels. You could say it helps to ‘adapt’ to stress.
