MISTY DAY PLANT POTIONS
TRADITIONAL USE
In China, G. lucidum has been cherished for over 2000
years as a longevity-promoting tonic. From a TCM
perspective - reishi is thought to tonify qi and nourishes
blood, calms the shen, transforms phlegm and stops cough.
It is not used as a culinary mushroom as it is very woody
and has a bitter flavour.
Medicinal uses of G. lucidum in ancient countries included
the treatment of neurasthenia, debility from prolonged
illness, insomnia, anorexia, dizziness, chronic hepatitis,
hypercholesterolemia, mushroom poisoning (antidote),
coronary heart disease, hypertension, prevention of altitude
sickness, treatment of fatigue , carcinoma, and bronchial
cough in the elderly.
Reishi is traditionally used with other herbs in herbal
decoctions
