Reishi is a fantastic supplement to support overall wellness and balance in the body. Reishi promotes homeostasis because of its adaptogenic properties. Adaptogens increase energy and resistance to stress by regulating a stable balance in the hypothalamic, pituitary, and adrenal glands. This includes mental stress such as anxiety, emotional stress such as depression and physical stressors such as fatigue or muscle soreness after a workout. All adaptogenic substances have a plethora of health benefits and can help people maintain optimal physical performance and resistance to physiological stressors.

Cortisol also regulates how you feel when you wake up in the morning by impacting serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine production. Reishi also promotes deep sleep and dreaming by reducing blood gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) levels and increasing glycine and serotonin levels in the body.
