Ling Zhi (Reishi Mushroom)
Ling Zhi (Ganoderma Lucidum) also known as Reishi Mushroom has been used traditionally in Chinese Medicine for immune support, anti-stress and a general well-being tonic. While the flesh of the Reishi is woody and can't be consumed, the immune boosting compounds are extracted in hot water. Either include in an herbal tea formula, or a broth can be made which can then be added to soups. Reishi is most commonly combined with Shiitake mushrooms, another famous immune boosting fungi.
