In keeping with our immune boosting theme this month, we are focusing on Willow & Sage's Reishi Mushroom.
Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) contains powerful beta-glucans, which are one of the most powerful and effective immune system boosters known to man. Reishi regulates the immune system and reduces the excess when the normal adaprive immune system responds excessively.
Reishi has also been praised for thousands of years for its effects on longevity - in ancient times, those seeking out immortality often used reishi mushrooms.
Benefits of consuming Reishi mushrooms may include:
Strengthening of the heart
Enhances cognitive ability
Tonifies Jing, Qi and Shen
I like to add 1tsp of powder into my morning smoothie when I'm feeling under the weather for a natural immune system boost, but it can also be added to a bulletproof coffee, an herbal elixir, or simply to some hot water.
