In China, the mushroom known as Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) has been called God's Herb for over 2000 years. Because of Reishi's reputation for being effective in treating a wide range of ailments, Chinese Emperors throughout history has ordered their servants to search for Reishi in the wild. They believed the consumption of Reishi would grant them eternal youth and greatly improve their health. As the mushroom was rare, it was only reserved for royalty and the affluent. It was not until the late 20th century that, through diligent cultivation by the Japanese, Reishi, the once extremely rare plant, was made widely available to the general public. Among the six kinds of Reishi species that are known to benefit health, RED REISHI have demonstrated the most significant health-enhancing effects and are most widely used in the global health supplement market nowadays. Research has shown that the health-enhancing properties of Reishi are strongest when the plant is mature, a state that is almost impossible to find in the wild due to the unstable environmental conditions that exist in the natural habitat of red Reishi plants. As a result, the highest quality of red Reishi products use mushrooms that have been naturally cultivated in greenhouses, as opposed to other inferior and potentially hazardous methods of growing Reishi using glass bottles.
