From Ancient Medicine to Modern Longevity: The Role of Reishi Mushrooms
“Reishi mushroom is the elixir of life that can help you feel healthier, happier, and more vital.” – Dr. Mark Stengler
To live a life that is long and memorable is certainly a top priority in most of our lives. Life is an amazing journey and although it is filled with many obstacles along the way, it guarantees us an experience worth the effort. We all want to live a long, healthy, and triumphant life that allows us to accomplish all the goals we set forward to achieve.
Longevity is simply defined as the length of one’s life under ideal conditions. This term has also been given to those who are known as long-lived individuals, people who have lived far past their life expectancy. Many reasons can determine one’s longevity such as genetics, diet, and environment but also the way we live our life can have an impact on how long we live it.
Throughout our years we have many things to do, whether it’s working a full-time job, following daily training, routine to stay healthy and fit, or doing fun activities with the ones you love every day.
“Reishi mushrooms are a natural way to enhance your immune system and improve your overall health and wellness.” – Dr. Andrew Weil
Stress and the constant ticking of time can be a deciding factor in the longevity of your body and mind, we often see this through complications such as sickness, pain, mental deterioration, and health problems.
Daily exercise, eating healthy food sources, managing stress, and getting enough sleep are different ways that can help us improve our longevity. Nature has also gifted us with a medicine that has been used for centuries in Ancient Japan and China and has shown remarkable results in extending one’s longevity.
The mushroom movement has now reached our doors and is undeniably an ingredient that could improve your life and the length of it. Mushrooms contain powerful adaptogenic properties which are natural compounds that help reduce mental and physical stress from within the body.
“Reishi mushrooms are a natural way to improve your sleep, reduce anxiety, and enhance your overall sense of well-being.” – Dr. Terry Wahls
There are many other natural compounds found within mushrooms that our body can employ to help reduce the effects of time and stress placed upon it.
Namely, antioxidants which help protect the cells from free radicals that enter our body, polysaccharide which contributes to cellular communication, Myelin sheath, protective padding found in the brain and spine and microbiome which helps suppress inflammatory bacteria in the gut.
Research and studies have backed mushrooms in their support in offering our bodies many benefits such as improved cognition, a healthy immune system, and increased energy levels. All contributing factors to an increase in our longevity.
“Mushrooms contain a variety of bioactive compounds that can support a healthy immune system, including polysaccharides, terpenoids, and phenolic compounds.” – Dr. Mark Hyman
One mushroom does its best and has been known throughout the world as “the mushroom of immortality”. Reishi has been used for medicinal purposes for around 2000 years and has shown to be beneficial in promoting health and longevity, boosting the immune system, and fighting off life-shortening conditions such as cardiovascular disease and cancer.
The Reishi Mushroom helps support the endocrine system which is responsible for the balancing of hormones and in turn helping the body manage stress and pressure in times of need.
