The Reishi mushroom is one of the most revered herbs in
Traditional Chinese Medicine. Known as Ling zhi in China,
there are references to its use as far back as 100 B.C.
when it was referred to as the "Herb of Spiritual Potency"
and the "Ten-thousand Year Mushroom".
The focus of Traditional Chinese Medicine is on actively
promoting good health and prevention. Reishi is one of the
most highly regarded herbs for this purpose and the mushroom
most often used as a general health tonic.
