This is the most amazing mushroom in the entire world. I have taken the Reishi mushroom everyday for years and reaped the rewards of its health benefits.
I wouldn’t eat a Reishi mushroom by itself because it is too woody and bitter. However, you can put it as one of the ingredients in a smoothie, make as a tea or take in supplement form.
