Ganoderma lucidum, the Reishi Mushroom, is a powerful, medicinal mushroom that has been used throughout human history. When brewed into a tea, the mushroom presents strong adaptogenic qualities, strengthening and balancing one's natural immune defenses. To brew a tea, find a source for clean Reishi Mushrooms in your area (or online: www.gnomesteadhollow.com) , use about a cup of the mushrooms to 4 cups of water..and simmer, covered, for at least 1 hour.
