Throughout history in holistic medicine, reishi mushrooms have been considered adaptogenic herbs. This means they help your body deal with the negative effects of stress, such as increased inflammation, depleted energy levels, damaged blood vessels and various types of hormonal imbalances.
The use of the reishi mushroom was first recorded over 2,000 years ago. It was frequently referred to as the “Mushroom of Immortality” in ancient texts. Around 200–250 C.E., the “Divine Farmer’s Classic of Pharmaceutics” categorized different varieties of mushrooms based on which part of the body they benefited.
