Introduction to Reishi Coffee Blend

Coffee is everywhere. Once a little-known delicacy with religious connotations, coffee has now become a staple for many. It was only in 2018 that coffee was announced as being the leading category in e-commerce grocery sales.

As one of the most consumed beverages in the world, there’s no wonder why there are many different types of coffee making their way onto the market. Beyond the pick-me-up that coffee provides, superfoods are also being included to give further benefits to the well-known favourite. At Cheerful Buddha, we have already brought you MCT Coconut CoffeeChaga Mushroom Coffee, and Lion’s Mane Mushroom Coffee. With a blend of our high-quality 100% Colombian arabica coffee with 3,750mg organic Reishi, we would like to introduce our Reishi Mushroom Coffee Blend.

What is Reishi?

Reishi mushrooms, also known as “Ganoderma lucidum” and “Lingzhi”, are fungi that grow in various hot and humid locations across Asia, Southern Europe, and the South Pacific. However, Reishi mushrooms are relatively rare, with reports stating only two or three out of 10,000 hardwood trees will have Reishi mushrooms growing on them.

Having been recognised as a medicinal mushroom for over 2,000 years, Reishi mushrooms are most commonly known for their supposed health benefits. Their medicinal properties The great thing about Reishi mushrooms is that they are incredibly versatile now found in a wide range of products, including lotions, capsules, superfood powders, and coffee (of course).

So, why so popular? Let’s dive straight in.

What are the benefits of Reishi mushrooms?

We all know mushrooms come in all different shapes and sizes, and they can support our health in very significant ways.

Although no scientific studies have officially taken place to test the health effects of Reishi coffee, preliminary research and some small human studies indicate that ganoderma taken on its own may offer a number of health benefits.

1. Boosts the immune system

As one of the most important benefits, it has been claimed that Reishi mushrooms can boost your immune system through their effects on the genes in white blood cells. Research has shown that some molecules found in Reishi mushrooms can increase activity in natural killer cells - these cells are known to fight infections.

2. Help to lower blood pressure

An animal study found that some compounds found in Reishi may be useful for helping to keep blood pressure down. The results after seven weeks of Reishi therapy showed reduced blood pressure in the experimental animals.

3. Fight against mental health problems

Reishi mushrooms have shown to have a class of proteins that act as precursors of neurotransmitters and endorphins. Essentially, this may indicate that Reishi can help to reduce anxiety and act as a mood booster.
