We highly recommend using the herb Ling Zhi (botanical name: Ganoderma Reishi Mushroom) to increase white blood cells and stimulate the production of antibodies that are essential to protecting the body from pathogenic invasions. In addition to its proven effectiveness in warding off viruses, its immune system enhancing abilities make it worthy of consideration by sufferers of autoimmune disorders such as HIV, or patients undergoing chemo-therapy.
Ling Zhi mushrooms are rather large in size; some can reach up to 10 inches across, we usually suggest customers purchase this herb already sliced for easier use. It has a rather mild flavor and makes a pleasant tea. The raw herb can be purchased whole or already sliced, it can easily be added to boiling water and brewed to make tea, or if you find making tea too much of a bother we have a fine quality powdered herb in capsules, or it can also be taken in liquid form in vials which have been pre-sweetened with honey. Choose whichever appeals to you most – but rely on Ling Zhi to keep you strong and in vibrant health.
We will provide complete daily dosage and usage instructions for this herb when your order is fulfilled.
Long-term use is highly recommended.
