Reishi Mushroom Powder
The Reishi mushroom is commonly known as the mushroom of immortality, as it has been used for many millennia in Chinese medicine to various diseases and therefore prolong life [1, 2].
The bioactive constituents that have been found to hold medicinal properties within the Reishi mushroom are mainly Lanostane-type triterpinoids 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].
