Taste The Benefits With Reishi Mushroom Powder
The bioactive constituents that have been found to hold medicinal properties within the Reishi mushroom are mainly Lanostane-type triterpenoids and polysaccharides such as beta-glucans. These are considered as potent agents for enhancing the immune system, as well as having high antioxidant and anti-microbial capacities [1, 3].
The mushroom is also well known for its beneficial effects on sleep and relaxation. When consumed, the mushroom shows to have hypnotic/sedative type effects, which explains why the mushroom has also been used to treat restlessness, palpitation and insomnia in China for hundreds of years [4, 5].
