Traditionally, Reishi has been used to strengthen and promote the healthy, balanced functioning of certain organs including: the heart, liver, lungs and kidneys. It is thought to enhance respiratory strength and re-establish normal levels of white blood cells, and therefore to support healthy immune function. Reishi has the ability to regulate or balance the immune system. It is also believed to help lower blood pressure and glucose levels.
