Reishi mushroom, also known as Ganoderma Lucidum, is a powerful fungi. Growing up in school I personally never had the advantage of learning about these. Nathan actually was familiar with them since they grew all around his house as a child. Last christmas Nathan actually researched everything on them and we found out that they wee reishi and they were amazing. The reishi above is growing on a dead tree in New Orleans, Louisiana.
When we did research on this mushroom we found out the medicinal properties. In the mycelium walls of the reishi mushroom there are beta-glucans, an essential long chain sugar that heals our bodies. These long chain sugars, or polysaccharides, help fight cancer, candida, and diabetes. The polysaccharides give your immune system the weapons they need to fight off bad bacteria and viruses. Reishi also lowers allergies, blood pressure, and cholesterol. Reishi is an anti-viral and anti-inflammatory.
