Reishi, the “mushroom of immortality”, is a polypore mushroom described as bitter-tasting with a tough texture. Dried reishi mushrooms are preferred over fresh because it mellows the bitter flavor and also yields concentrated polysaccharides and other antioxidant compounds when added to healing teas, soups, and stews. Use reishi sparingly when adding whole pieces directly to soups or stews and improve its bitter taste by mixing with other herbs and soaking in flavorful liquids.
Recognized as an adaptogen, this edible type of medicinal fungus is widely used in Eastern medicine and is admired as a tonic benefiting vital energy or "Qi". It is jam-packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and health-promoting compounds believed to help the body adjust to internal and external stress, limit anxiety, and boost the immune system. Explore the variety of ways to add this "superfood" into your diet.
