Need to chill out? Try reishi. Also called lingzhi in China, which signifies longevity and spirituality, reishi has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years, making it one of the oldest mushrooms to be used.
While reishi grows in a variety of colors, it’s the red and black varieties that boast the greatest benefits, due largely to their higher concentration of immune function supporting triterpenes and polysaccharides.
As an adaptogen with the ability to sooth nerves, manage occasional stress and stimulate sleep cycles, it's an amazing nightly ritual to add to your wellness routine. Because it has a naturally bitter taste, I like to pair it with rich cacao for guilt-free hot cacao.
