Reishi Medicinal Mushroom

The Different Colours of Reishi Mushroom

The 'mushroom of immortality' and nourisher of the spirit, Reishi mushroom is revered for its ability to support a sense of calm while at the same time strengthen immunity and support the body's innate ability to handle stress.

At Inner Atlas we work with Red Reishi. During the Ming Dynasty 6 colours of Reishi were immortalised into legend; red, black, white, purple, green and yellow, and were related to the 5 Elements Theory in Traditional Chinese Medicine, with each colour being connected to an organ system within the body. Read on as we dive into each of the 6 colours and their benefits.
