RAW, Cracked-Cell Wall Reishi Spores Blended at a 1:1 Concentration With Our Standardized, Fruiting Body Reishi Extract Powder

Regarded by ancient herbalists as the Mushroom of Immortality, modern herbalists love reishi for its powerful adaptogenic qualities. The Reishi mushroom, Ganoderma lucidum, is potentially the oldest and most revered medicinal herb used in traditional forms of Chinese, Eastern, and indigenous medicines throughout the Northern Hemisphere. The Chinese name for Reishi, Lingzhi, translates and alludes to “supernatural mushroom” and “wonder mushroom,” giving us pause to ponder both the deep reverence for Reishi and the potential benefits it has to offer. Reishi is used to support the immune system, relieve stress, strengthen the spirit, calm the mind and promote peaceful sleep. In addition, Reishi is used to promote longevity, as a general health tonic, as well as to develop and enhance spiritual awareness and well being.

Our Reishi Buddha Blend is a comprehensive Reishi preparation, with a unique combination of organically cultivated Raw Reishi spores and organic Duanwood Reishi Extract. A bio-active and dense source of the medicinal polysaccharides, triterpenes, and beta-glucans found in Reishi fungi and in Reishi spores.

The Reishi Buddha Blend is masterfully crafted to provide the highest possible quality and integrity Reishi. Reishi Buddha Blend seeks to offer all the possible, positive benefits that this long-revered tonic has to offer.

Ethnobotanical History

The historical use of Reishi is really a history of China over the past 4000 years, when it was first written about as a longevity tonic in the classic medical texts during the Han Dynasty. In Chinese, Reishi is known as Lingzhi, the plant of immortality and spiritual potency. In Korean, it's known as Ling Chu, the plant of immortality and resurrection. Throughout history, Reishi has been so highly prized by the ruling classes in China, that at times, it was illegal for anyone but royalty to possess or consume the fungus. Royalty would set out specialized envoys of fungi hunters into the ancient plumb tree forests throughout China to locate and harvest Reishi, bringing it back only for use by the royalty. Reishi was, and is today, considered the “elixir of life.” In current Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is used for a variety of purposes including: enchaining and modulating the immune system; fighting various infections, including bird flu and hepatitis; adjunct therapy in fighting cancer; treating stomach illness; lung conditions like asthma boosting general health; preventative medicine; increasing longevity; and enhancing the strength of the spirit.

The historical use of Reishi goes beyond China and Korea. There is mention of Reishi by the Romans, who considered it to be a “food of the gods.” In Egypt, it was considered to be a gift from the Egyptian god Osiris, the god of the afterlife, which speaks to the longevity-enhancing effects of Reishi.

Traditional Usage

Reishi has been highly regarded as a premiere medicinal herb throughout history. It was renowned in the past as bringing happiness, good luck, health and longevity to those that used it.

Chinese classical and traditional uses:

  • Promote radiant health, longevity, and spiritual attainment;
  • Anti-aging herb;
  • Tonify the Three Treasures: Jing (essence), Qi (life energy and life force) and Shen (spirit, awareness, and consciousness), as well as to protect and guard the liver and heart;

  • Protect the entire body, nourishing the heart and protecting the liver;

    I've tried several products from RAW Forest Foods and all are excellent but Reishi budda blend is incredible. My thoughts are much clearer my emotional state is calm and stable. 10 years ago I had lost I did not know what it was to have pleasure in sex. Today I come to howl. My ejaculation was poor and weak. Today comes with a lot of pressure. Enough to scare. laughs My performance at the gym has improved a lot. I would never believe in the effect of reishi if I had not experienced it. I recommend everyone to take this product for life. Very grateful to RAW Forest Foods for this amazing product and its great quality.

    The Buddha is smiling

    Legs on Jan 19, 2016

    I bought this reisha blend after taking reisha for years and then reading about it again at Life Extension. So I wanted a more complete blend and found yours. I did read all the previous reviews. There is nothing wrong with me - I believe in prevention and giving the body the tools it needs. I wrote to your owner about the dosage because I am only 100 pounds and female. I have been taking 1/4 teaspoon every day for a week, and I haven't noticed anything - probably because I have been taking it for years. But I have not noticed anything bad either so that is good! Seriously, I thought the amount that I received for the price was also good.

    Buddha Blend and Hypothyroidism

    Christine on Nov 30, 2015

    I was diagnoised with a Thyroid issue a few years back from my OBGYN on a routine visit. I am a Plant Based Chef and work with several different nutritional lines as an educator, so I was completly surprised at this. After researching for sometime I came across your products. I love Raw Food Products and feel they can be most effective when treating certain nutritional issues. I saw your Buddha Blend and decided to give it a try. Within four months my numbers started to go down! and I was in range! After being on it for about six months I decided to try something different that had some of the same ingredients as well as some other plant nutrition I was adding into my daily routine. Unfortunately my numbers shot right back up, and within 3 months! So I know now how crucial it is for me to stay on the Buddha Blend. I am now trying your Camellia Powder and excited to see what it can do for me as well. My husband takes your Pine Pollen extract. Thank you for such amazing products! Thank you.

    Very noticeable, high-quality results. Fast Shipping, too!

    Billy on Feb 02, 2015

    I work on a major, class-one railroad as an over-the-road conductor in Chicago. This means that I work on-call 24/365, and that being able to sleep when I need to is very important. Going years without a long-use, restorative/sleep supplement has led me to feel a growing emptiness in my deepest reserves of vitality. Nothing has been able to replace what I feel that I have been losing. Nothing except Reishi Buddha Blend. My first night of sleep after taking this wonderful product was full and restorative. I feel a balanced solidity in my body and spirit now, and I feel that I have new room for new health--the total opposite of how I felt before this product. Also, the shipping was really quick. Thanks!

    Top Shelf Quality

    Russ on Jan 12, 2015

    Happy with the reishi. Been a fan of medicinal mushrooms for years. I understand there is a cost to health, but it's nice to know there are companies out there putting out great products that don't break the bank. I've have a very good experience with RFF and will continue to be a customer!

    Better than spores or reishi

    Jordan on Nov 07, 2014

    I have used reishi and I have used spores on their own, but this combination of the two is really good. I give this product a 5 star rating.
