Reishi mushroom (Ling Zhi) is a very rare and precious Chinese medicine (herb). Since immemorial time, only royalty had the privilege of consuming it. Reishi mushroom with its medical efficacy was attested to the ancient Chinese medical texts, known in Japan as "Shinnoh Honzohkyo" and the "Chinese Outline of Herbs" written by Li Sze Tsun of the Ming Dynasty. There are 365 kinds of medicine that are classified and explained in both texts. Reishi mushroom has been ranked the ' Number One Herb ' among the 365 recognized herbs. In "Shinnoh Honzohkyo", six kinds of reishi mushrooms (blue, red, yellow, white, black and purple) are fully explained and the red reishi has been ranked first among them.
