With more than 400 active compounds, red reishi offers a virtual pharmacy of health benefits. As an adaptogen, red reishi has the ability to return the body to homeostasis for a wide range of health issues. Red reishi is termed in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a “superior herb,” as it is able to restore balance, even when used as a single herb. Red reishi is non-toxic and can be safely used long term by most.

The most common and traditional way to prepare reishi is by hot water extraction {steeping}. This method is what has been done for centuries of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine and other ancient practices, so its health benefits and safety are the most recognized. Reishi can be steeped in hot water for at least four hours. Then the liquid is filtered, and the solids are discarded. This process can be repeated. The resulting liquid can be consumed as a strong tea that can also be used as a base for making soups, broths, or sauces.
