Red Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum… aka Lingzhi) has immunomodulatory and immunotherapeutic qualities. Reishi may inhibit platelet aggregation to lower blood pressure, cholesterol levels and blood sugar. This blend is a 50/50 mix of two Reishi species; Ganoderma tsugae known as "Song Shan Ling Zhi"' is our most common native Northeastern species, and the more widely used Ganoderma lucidum. Our native species (G.tsugai) has similar biochemistry and properties as the Reishi (G. lucidum).

Have you heard the legend of the 127 year old man from China who attributes his old age to Reishi?

Reishi contains polysaccharides - molecules that promote longevity by boosting our immune system. The same molecules are responsible for the skin’s ability to hydrate and retain water, making your skin appear more youthful and wrinkle-free.

Do you have trouble losing weight? Reduce your cravings for that sugary late night snack.

Reishi combats cravings by targeting fat and sugar metabolism, helps in preventing obesity, diabetes and may help regulate sugar levels. In assisting to prevent sugar cravings, Reishi can also target and destroy 'bad' bacteria in the gut- thus making a weight loss regime more effective.

Reishi is a 'Shen' tonic. Shen means “spirit”. Disruptions of the spirit result when anxiety, insomnia, racing thoughts, mood fluctuations, and poor memory come into play. Whether it be stress, professional deadlines, or personal goals that need to be attained- as an adaptogen, Reishi is also used to support the healthy function of the heart, increasing blood flow and providing more oxygen to the brain. Help your body, mind and spirit align with a cup of mushroom tea.

When do we use it, and what about the taste?

Reishi tincture contains a slight alcohol taste due to the extraction process. It has a robust flavor and produces a calm and collecting effect on the body and mind. Here at the Birch Boys Office in Tupper Lake, we use Chaga tincture by day and Reishi tincture by night.
