Reishi – the history of the vital mushroom

Reishi: A mushroom with a long history

Reishi used to be reserved for nobles and priests. Thanks to successful cultivation, this medicinal mushroom is now valued as a natural food supplement.

Reishi grows exclusively on hardwood trees in the subtropical climate of Southeast Asia. Reishi has a long history in these areas: until the 20th century it was reserved exclusively for kings, nobles and priests to consume Reishi. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the Reishi mushroom is called “Ling Zhi”. Today Reishi is accessible to the broad population. HANDO® has launched Reishi, containing valuable active ingredients, as a natural food supplement on the European market.

Reishi – the anti-aging mushroom from Asia

The beneficial effects of the medicinal mushroom are far-reaching. It is no coincidence that Reishi has been used in Japanese and Chinese folk medicine for around 4,000 years.

Reishi mushroom used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has beneficial effects against the following complaints:

  • Arthritis

  • Neurasthenia

  • Chronic bronchitis

  • Asthma

  • Peptic ulcers

  • Allergies

  • Migraine

  • Altitude sickness

  • Coronary heart disease

“Ganoderma lucidum” is not called “mushroom for long life” or “mushroom for immortality” for nothing in Asia. Reishi is considered an alternative remedy against premature aging. This vital mushroom increases vitality, the ability to concentrate, strengthens the immune system and protects the liver.
