What is it?

Called “ling zhi” in Chinese, reishi is actually a fungus that is woody and tough. It has a brown-purplish colour with brown spores, long stalk and a cap that is fan-like in shape. Its outer appearance is shiny like it has been coated with varnish.

There are six varieties of reishi mushroom which are classified according to colour. There is: red reishi (akashiba), blue reishi (aoshiba), purple reishi (murasakishiba), black reishi (kuroshiba), yellow reishi (kishiba) and white reishi (shiroshiba).

Of these, it is the red one that’s believed to be the most potent. Thus, red reishi is the most commonly used variety by herbalists.

The history of reishi mushrooms is quite long, having existed for over 4,000 years. In traditional Chinese medicine, reishi has been used to treat a wide variety of afflictions such as fatigue, respiratory problems and liver disease.

You will see this herbal mushroom growing on tree stumps and decaying wood, mostly on plum and oak trees. It is endemic in Japan, China and some areas in Asia where they grow wild in the forests. But finding them this way is hard because reishi mushroom is very rare. Because of this, only ancient Chinese and Japanese royalty consumed this mushroom.
