AHPA’s 40 Herbs We Love – No. 19: Reishi Mushroom (with love from Yellow Emperor)

August 25, 2022

AHPA's 40th anniversary celebrations continue with our showcase of the nineteenth of many beloved herbs at the heart of our robust industry and vibrant community.

No. 19: Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lingzhi)

Lingzhi Mushroom, also known as Reishi, has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. "Lingzhi" means "divine mushroom" and was considered the mushroom of longevity. In TCM, Reishi is used to balance formulas, support the immune system, and tonify the circulatory system. It is considered calmative to the spirit. It contains ganoderic acids (triterpenes) that have a similar structure to steroid hormones and contains dietary fiber in the form of polysaccharides.

In Yellow Emperor's Private Label Formulas line, you will find Reishi mushroom in several multi-ingredient formulas as well as in single extract form. Reishi is one of the many Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and Western herbs and fungi we manufacture into products for brands you know and love.
