Reishi Buddha Blend 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.

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.
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.

This Buddha Blend rocks. Smart combination of reishi spores and extract, use it daily and feel more grounded and my head is clearer than its been in 15 years. I recommend this to all my clients.
I've taken Reishi on and off for 4-5 years now. It helped me through a time in my life when I had really frightening anxiety and had to rediscover who I was.
Well I picked some up after a considerable amount of time away from the herb because I've been stressed and had been having some sleeping problems. Just waking up a lot in the middle of the night. Well after a day of taking Reishi I slept all the way through the night without waking up once and my dreams were super intensely vivid and detailed. Really digging this Reishi.
