Reishi mushrooms are a type of medicinal mushroom that are often used to support the immune system, reduce fatigue and stress, and improve sleep. The benefits don't stop there though! People also take Reishi mushrooms to support this liver, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, support the cardiovascular system, act as an adjunct to Cancer treatments, build strength/stamina, help with viral infections, and the list goes on. As you can see, these are very powerful healing mushrooms.
I first was introduced to reishi mushrooms about 5 or so years ago when I was trying to balance my hormones and heal naturally. Not only were my hormones out of whack, but my immune system and adrenals were shot and my health was spiralling. I was struggling with insomnia for an extended period of time which was only worsening my other symptoms. I was also very stressed as I was in the hardest year of law school. It was a rough time and I was willing to try anything to help. I did try a supplement with reishi in it at that time (and it did help), but the quality and potency of that supplement doesn't compare to HAVNLife's formulation - I wish I could have taken these supplements back then!
For the most part I have my sleep under control now, but I am always looking for ways to help keep my stress levels at bay and to relax/wind down before bed to ensure the deepest and most restful sleep possible. Because of my past sleep struggles, I now have a deep appreciation for the healing that takes place while we sleep and how important it is to prioritize rest to ensure optimal health. I also need to constantly be aware of when I am overdoing it because I still struggle with hormonal imbalances (slow and steady progress as healing doesn't happen overnight) and fatigue sets in when I push to hard. So that's my "why"/the reasons that I was most excited to try HAVNLife's Reishi Recharge.
I also love that this supplement is also vegan, gluten-free, and non-gmo as those are things I look for in my supplements. You also only need 1 capsule per day and there are 60 capsules per bottle so one bottle will last a full two months! Love that.
