Reishi Mushroom: The Hayfever Fix?

reishi for hayfever

16 million people suffer from hayfever every year in Britain, but instead of suffering (and sneezing) in silence; we may have the answer – Reishi Mushroom!

Magic Mushroom

Reishi is a medicinal mushroom that has been cultivated for thousands of years in China for its many health benefits. It is an edible type of medicinal fungus that fits the definition of a true superfood. Also known as Ling Zhi, these mushrooms are anti-inflammatory and tied to longevity, better immune function and mental clarity, earning them the nickname ‘King of Mushrooms’.

Reishi mushroom is also known as the ‘number one natural supplement for controlling hayfever’ due to its ability to relieve hayfever and allergy symptoms. It contains bioflavonoid triterpene which inhibits histamine release and oleic acid which has antihistamine actions. Ling Zhi is also known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to regulate the immune system and improve oxygen supply – benefiting those who are suffering from the sneezes!
