Reishi is an age old herb cited thousands of years ago in several Chinese texts and scripts as being a tonic for emperors. Traditional and contemporary Chinese medicine admire it as a tonic benefiting vital energy or "Qi", and it is prescribed for a multitude of maladies. Reishi is a polypore mushroom that grows in damp, dark forests and the occasional rotting log. Modern day demand has enabled its cultivation in Japan, China and the United States which is promising for the wild stands of Reishi.
