Reishi: The Mushroom of Equanimity

Reishi: The Mushroom of Equanimity

The number one quality I desire to see in people I meet is that they can be clear and strong minded: consistent equanimity.

This is the golden goal: To have equanimity of thought and to continue to express supportive and logical beliefs about life and about oneself even amidst stress. When I see someone lose their composure of emotional intelligence, I can't help but feel for them and wish deeply that I could help them 'hack' their mind and get right back to (and then improve upon) their mental clarity so they can be the brilliant person they were born to be!


If you're reading this, that means that you are already open to the idea that what you put in your body makes a huge impact on how your brain works and how you handle stress. So I'm sure that you are taking some action on your path of gearing your nutrition and lifestyle to improve your body and mind.

You rock for thinking critically, reflecting on your life and making healthier choices so you can feel great, think more clearly and kick butt at your passions!

But, how is that going for you so far? Be honest. Where do you still fumble? Would you like to improve your resilience to stress so the best parts of your character can shine all day?

For the first ten years of improving my diet, I did have some significant health gains, but I would still get stressed so easily at least once a day. I would internalize anger and feel frustrated at even the mildest of stresses. I thought I was just being a perfectionist, but now I believe it was combination of deep emotional, nutritional and health issues that needed to be fully and earnestly addressed.

I had tapped out my adrenals and nervous system with all the low fat cleansing protocols I had done back then and I consumed very little highly-bioavailabe nutrient-dense nutrition, especially ancestral and herbal nutrition.



Over the years I realized that if I wanted to have truly impeccable responses to stress (to feel good all of the time and to have clarity of mind for consistent, supportive, rational beliefs about myself amid all that life throws at me) I needed to up my nutrition game and go way beyond fruits and vegetables.

Enter: Reishi mushroom, the top ingredient in the category of nutrition - adaptogens - I was missing up until then.

Reishi was one of the first truly therapeutic supplements and adaptogens I got on!

Often called the 'mushroom of immortality' and used throughout Asia and other parts of the world as a tonic and remedy for thousands of years, reishi now has decades of scientific research demonstrating how it can modulate and strengthen the immune system, can have anti-tumor effects, may protect and repair the liver, helps defend against allergies and blood sugar issues, may help improve sleep, and - my favorite - can help the mind focus, feel calm, unstressed and energized without the need for drugs and without any crash or side effects, and more benefits than I can list here.


Reishi gives immediate benefits within 20 minutes of taking it but there are also cumulative long term benefits from taking it daily over months and years. These benefits are associated with reishi's unique array of human active constituents like polysaccharides, glycoproteins, triterpenes, germanium and more.

Reishi is extremely nutritious when it comes to essential trace nutrients. Well, some reishi is. Most reishi out there is reishi mycelium grown on rice. Mycelium is the cheapest form of reishi and is what most reishi products are made from. When I first started taking reishi I quickly realized that this form of reishi only gave me some of the noticeable benefits when I would take extra large expensive multi-tablespoons dosages of it throughout the day. Fortunately I discovered better extracts of different parts of the reishi mushroom like the fruiting body that corresponded to the traditional use of reishi and the extracts used in most of the studies on reishi. These were much more potent and only required a small daily serving to work wonders on my state of health and ability to focus.

I became a reishi connoisseur. Two years before starting Longevity Power I was fortunate enough to successfully source what I consider to be the best reishi on the planet. It's even better than wild reishi! Normally I think that the wild version of anything is the best but I do make a critical exception here for good reason: This reishi, which we call Epic Reishi, is created from wild genetics, grown organic duanwood buried-log, and extracted to concentrate the mostt deeply-calming triterpenes (mushroom oils) and immune-strengthening beta-glucans. This exceeds the power of a homemade wild reishi tea and is magnitudes more potent and cost effective than the other reishi and functional mushroom products out there.

I'll say it again: The number one quality I desire to see in all people I meet is that they are clear and strong minded (equanimity!) as consistently as possible. From this, all other great qualities of a person can arise.

Please order yourself a jar or two of Epic Reishi so that you will have a nutritional tool you can rely on to take your physical and mental health to your next level! I know you'll just love it!


Yours in helping you unleash everything you've got!
