- What is Ganoderma Lucidum(Reishi )?
Ganoderma is a genus of polypore mushrooms which lives in the mountains with high humidity and dimly lit.
There are so many kinds of Reishi mushrooms, but generally the Reishi are refer to Chizhi, with botanical name Ganoderma Lucidum.
Reishi is characterized by basidiocarps that are large, perennial, woody brackets also called “conks”. They are lignicolous and leathery either with or without a stem. The fruit bodies typically grow in a fan-like or hoof-like form on the trunks of living or dead trees. They have double-walled, truncate spores with yellow to brown ornamented inner layers.
Reishi was widely used in Asian traditional medicines for thousands of years, especially in traditional Chinese medicine. Reishi are mainly grown in central China, especially in the Anhui Dabieshan. As early as in Ming dynasty, Li shizhen, one of China’s greatest medical scientist, wrote in his Ben Cao Gang Mu that Reishi grown in Dabieshan had the best curative effect.
