The lingzhi mushroom or reishi mushroom is a species complex that encompasses several fungal species of the genus Ganoderma. The reishi mushroom enjoys special veneration in East Asia, where it has been used as a medicinal mushroom in Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than 2,000 years, making it one of the oldest mushrooms known to have been used medicinally.
Its use has also been explored as a complementary adjunct treatment in patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
