Reishi mushrooms are the new superstars of wellness!
What are they and what makes them so special?
They are medicinal mushrooms grown in northern Canada and China. Chinese medicine touts them as providing balance and calm. They can be purchased in pieces or as a powder. They are often added to tea; some research suggests they can improve blood glucose levels, along with having anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. To date, human studies on these mushrooms have been small. More research is needed to prove the health claims made by their many proponents.
