Mushroom magic proves more than myth

In ancient China, emperors were the only people allowed to eat reishi mushrooms. Such was their rarity and purported ability to be able to extend life they were known as ‘the mushroom of immortality’.

New research, has suggested that there may be more to reishi’s claim to be ‘the mushroom of immortality’ than a myth.

This latest study joins a growing body of evidence highlighting the powerful health benefits of reishi including helping protect the brain (by preventing brain cells called neurons from dying) and having various different anti-oxidant activities (anti-oxidants help fight oxygen free radicals – the main culprits thought to be behind aging skin).
