The Reishi mushroom is one of the most revered herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Known as Ling zhi in China, there are references to its use as far back as 1,000 B.C. when it was referred to as the "Herb of Spiritual Potency" and the "Ten-thousand Year Mushroom".
The focus of Traditional Chinese Medicine is on actively promoting good health and prevention. Reishi is one of the most highly regarded herbs for this purpose and the mushroom most often used as a general health tonic.
Modern clinical research also supports many of the uses for this mushroom as described in traditional medicine. It benefits immune health and liver function. Reishi is also frequently used by mountain climbers to combat altitude sickness and is contained in many of the performance enhancing herbal formulas used by Chinese athletes.
