Reishi also known as Lingzhi is a medicinal mushroom which has been prized in Chinese culture for over 2000 years for their unmatched capacity to aid the body in constructing a powerful immune system, promoting hormonal adaptability and generally bringing the body back to a state of homeostasis. Our reishi is wild (very rare) and indigenous to the secondary flood forests in the Amazon. They are a special variety well adapted to their habitat. Each year the forest floods provide a very limited window for the mushrooms to grow and release their spores. These mushrooms are forced to prioritise quick growth in order to ensure the greatest quantity of spores released. In doing so, the mushrooms become more concentrated in number, softer, and quicker growing. Thus, they become more vulnerable to pests as the larger numbers attract more insects bringing more parasitic fungi and bacteria. The mushrooms make up for this by concentrating more energy into the production of their chemical defence mechanisms - these become the very concentrated medicinal constituents specific to our Amazonian reishi.
