Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is a fungus which, like shiitake, grows on the wood of various hardwood species. It is particularly revered in Asia, where it is attributed with numerous properties. It has been used as a medicine there for more than 2,000 years, and is one of the oldest known mushrooms for this purpose.
The benefits of this mushroom include immunotherapeutic and anti-tumour properties due to the presence of various bioactive principles (beta-glucans and terpenes).
At Fungi natur we grow it on oak and chestnut trunks, half-buried and covered with natural forest litter to preserve the extra moisture it needs.
Due to its leathery texture, we present it dehydrated (at low temperature) and ground for use in herbal teas, smoothies, soups, etc.
