Plant-based mushrooms have become a staple of healthy lifestyles in recent years. Long used traditionally in East Asian cultures and cuisines to calm the body and relax the mind,‡ the demand for superfoods like reishi mushrooms expanded into the west as part of a global movement towards more organic food consumption habits.
Reishi mushrooms are full of natural vitamins and minerals that support the health of both the body and the mind.‡ For those that don’t like the taste of whole mushrooms, reishi mushroom powder provides the beneficial nutrients in a dietary supplement without the mushroom taste.‡ Today, people choose to purchase reishi mushroom powder from certified vendors, like Rritual, that offer plant-based solutions to help the body cope with stress and support the immune system.‡
But how does one go about using reishi mushroom powder? What are some easy and healthy ways to prepare healthy foods with the right dosage of reishi powder? Let’s look into some of the options on the table.
First of all, what exactly is reishi mushroom powder good for, and how does it help support your overall health and wellbeing?
Reishi mushrooms can help relax the mind.‡ They’re highly regarded as nourishing superfoods that can help the body adapt to very stressful situations.‡Stress takes a significant physical, emotional, and even psychological toll on the body, which can compromise how the immune system maintains a person’s overall health and well-being.
Reishi mushroom powder containsAshwagandha root, an adaptogenic herb long revered to help bring balance to vital bodily functions.‡ There are also other essential nutrients in reishi powder; according to WebMD, essential nutrients can be derived from reishi mushrooms.‡ Taken as part of a healthy diet, reishi mushroom powder can help the body process stress so that the immune system is able to function as effectively as it should.‡
Despite their organic roots and containing natural vitamins and minerals, there are reasonable questions about how much reishi mushroom powder is safe to take?‡ Ideally, the optimal dosage depends largely on your biological conditions.‡
When you first begin taking reishi powder, start with one scoop containing approximately 3 grams of powder. Add this scoop into a 6-8 ounce cup or mug containing hot water, tea, or coffee, depending on your own daily habits. Stir the powder into the liquid to help it dissolve. Once it’s ready, slowly sip your drink so the powder can be absorbed by your body.
There are several ways to prepare reishi mushroom powder for regular ingestion. While there are complex homemade remedies to make use of the mushrooms and extract the nutrient-rich powder from their cores, we recommend more straightforward methods that make it easy to consume reishi powder on the regular as part of your daily ritual.
Save yourself the manual labor and purchase reishi mushroom powder that’s pre-packaged and certified as a plant-based product.‡ These powders come in reishi canisters or coffee/tea stix that can be scooped into a hot drink with a simple opening of the package.
Finally, you can also cook homemade meals with reishi mushroom powder by following a number of creative recipes. These range from adding the powder to a healthy smoothie to including it in a recipe for bolognese sauce for a delicious hot meal.
When and how you should take reishi mushroom powder depends, in part, on your body mass and overall level of health. Naturally, people who have larger bodies can tolerate higher quantities of reishi compared to people with smaller bodies.‡
Since reishi powder is most commonly consumed in a hot tea or coffee, it may be best to time when you ingest the powder around when you have your hot drink of choice. Many people start their days with a fresh cup of tea or coffee, which can be all the more nutritious with a healthy scoop of reishi powder. A second cup in the afternoon can also be improved with a dose of reishi.
Reishi mushroom powder is fairly easy to use and offers both physical and mental health benefits to your well-being. By making reishi a regular part of your daily ritual, you can enjoy a more calm, relaxing, and healthy frame of mind.‡
Rritual’s reishi powder also contains traces ofashwagandha root, an adaptogenic herb long revered to help bring balance to vital bodily functions.‡ Taking reishi powder with ashwagandha can help calm “overactive” minds in order to calm frazzled nerves and help you achieve a more restful night’s sleep.‡ When you’re more rested, you can cope with anxiousness and stressful situations in a more calm and relaxed way; that’s the power of reishi.‡
