This Reishi Mushroom extract powder is a wild crafted tonic herb for cultivating Spiritual energy, modulating immune function, and promoting health, longevity, and peace of mind. According to Shen Nong’s Divine Husbandman’s Classic of the Materia Medica: “Long term consumption [of Reishi mushroom] will lighten the body and prevent aging, extend one’s life, and make one an immortal.” We at Jing Herbs agree. As a matter of fact, if you were given the choice of taking only one herb for the rest of your life, from all the herbs in the world, we belileve Reishi should be your choice. It has a legendary status in the Orient because of its ability to profoundly affect so many aspects of your life in a positive manner. Reishi mushroom, also known as the “Mushroom of Immortality” and the “Herb of Good Fortune” is considered by many to be the quintessential tonic herb because of its ability to nurture all Three Treasures (Jing, Qi, Shen). It is an adaptogenic and longevity herb that helps to support and regulate immune function, protect the cardio vascular system, and support and protect the liver. But perhaps its greatest function is that of a Shen tonic. It is unrivalled in its ability to open the Heart, calm the Spirit, and connect you to your higher self. It enhances wisdom and supports spiritual evolution and insight. In addition to the Reishi extract, we have added potent Reishi spores to this product. Spores are essentially the seeds of the mushroom. They house the essence of the Reishi mushroom and contain many nutrients in that hyper potentiate the effects of Reishi. 250 gram packet 125 servings per packet Extract ratio: 10:1 Ideal for: Anyone.
