Great Lakes Treats authentic wild harvested sliced Reishi (Gandoderma tsugae). Foraged and hand harvested. Great Lakes Treats takes pride in being certified by the Institute of Sustainable Foragers and dedicated to the practice of giving back to nature. Reishi mushrooms are said to be used for aging, boosting the immune system; viral infections such as the flu (influenza), swine flu, and avian flu; lung conditions including asthma and bronchitis; heart disease and contributing conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol; diabetes; kidney disease; cancer; polyps (growths) in the colon or rectum, and liver disease. It is also used for HIV/AIDS, altitude sickness, symptoms in the urinary tract in men, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), trouble sleeping (insomnia), and stomach ulcers. Other uses include reducing stress and preventing and treating different kinds of fatigue.
Unlike most reishi found online, our reishi is 100% wild foraged from pristine Northern Michigan forests (by us!).
We feel it makes a great alternative to commercially produced energy drinks and often pack along a quick brew on our mushroom hunting adventures.
Brew this up just like you would for your favorite loose leaf tea. Reishi has a mild earthy flavor and may be best enjoyed with your favorite sweeteners. Reishi is also delicious when added to stocks and broths.
