SUPERFEAST REISHI: THE CENTURIES-OLD ELIXIR OF IMMORTALITY.
Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is an ancient medicinal mushroom that promotes full-spectrum healing and restoration in the body.
Also known as “Lingzhi” in China, it traditionally translates as the “tree of life mushroom” or “spirit plant” and is often referred to as the 'mushroom of immortality'. Reishi is revered by traditional Chinese medicine, and Taoist folklore talks at length about it as the key to eternal life.
SuperFeast's Reishi powder helps nourish the body, mind, heart, and soul - and is one of the best versions of reishi mushroom Australia has to offer.

SuperFeast Reishi Review By Darcy - Bircher Bar Founder and Owner
What I Like:
It's a one-stop natural medicine for excellent health:
I like SuperFeast Reishi mushroom powder because it's a well-rounded supplement that provides a wide range of benefits for the body and mind. It's one of my go-to mushrooms at night as it's notably good at calming the nervous system and helping with deeper and more restful sleep.
Additionally, I feel more sustained energy levels the next day, concentrate better on tasks, and again, sleep way better!
Reishi is quite famous for its potent and bitter taste. I personally don’t mind these flavours, but added straight to water might be too shocking for most. The bitterness of reishi mushroom powder works beautifully when combined with a bit of sweetness so throw it in a smoothie or simply mix with cacao and honey for a simple reishi hot chocolate.
Company Values and Service:
This product is a perfect reflection of the company – ethical, potent and healing! I've worked with SuperFeast closely year after year, and they never disappoint. They put their heart and soul into what they do, and it shows.
What I Think Could Be Improved:
Not so much an improvement but maybe a suggestion for people that don't care much for the flavour - the small serving size recommended each day can easily fit inside a capsule for quick intake.
Empty gel capsules are cheap and available from many online retailers and pre-loading pills takes only a few minutes.
- One-stop-shop for overall better health
- One of the most well studied medicinal mushrooms
- Particularly effective in improving sleep and reducing stress
- Great immune booster as well
- The bitterness of the powder can be unpalatable for some

What Is Reishi Mushroom?
Primarily found the majestic mountains of highland China, Reishi is a powerful medicinal mushroom that can be found thriving on logs and deadwood. Eastern cultures believe it prolongs longevity, while western medicine recognises it as a potent anti-inflammatory.
SuperFeast stays true to form on the ancient harvesting method and allows the Fungi to grow on wild oak. There are six colour variations of the Reishi - black, white, green, yellow, purple, but SuperFeast uses only the red type for its potent medicinal properties.
Health Benefits Of Reishi Mushroom
The Reishi mushroom has a long list of evidence-backed medicinal effects, many of which relate to its ability to naturally reduce inflammation.
Many modern studies are also showing some promising results when used in conjunction with cancer treatments.
Some of the most commonly recognised and best-supported benefits of reishi include:
- Improved heart health
- Better ability to deal with stress & anxiety
- More energy, reduced fatigue
- Potentiated immunity
- Treat insomnia & regulate sleep patterns
- Support organ & body unification
- Remedy seasonal allergies
- Aiding skin conditions such as acne

How To Take Reishi
As I mentioned previously if you're a fan of bitter flavours, SuperFeast's Reishi mushroom powder can easily be stirred into your morning coffee, tea or straight up in hot water.
If you'd prefer to balance the bitterness, try adding it into some of your favourite savoury dishes - bolognese, curries and soups and all good fits! Reishi isn't heat sensitive so you can add it to anything that takes your fancy.
As for dosage - start out by taking 1/4 to 1/2 tsp daily, and increasing your dose over time as your body adapts to it. As with all supplements, it's recommended you check with your doctor before taking it, especially if you are pregnant &/or on any other medications.
How much should I take?:
Generally, we recommend taking the herbs daily in small doses to begin with, start with 1/4-1/2 teaspoon per day, building up to a good heaped teaspoon per day once you feel it necessary.
Is reishi safe to take while pregnant/breastfeeding?:
Pregnancy is a very individual experience and therefore you should always consult with your health practitioner before starting any new supplements. That being said, there are no studies that restrict the consumption of red reishi during pregnancy. Reishi is used to fortify immunity, adaptability and hormone health and offers the nervous system deep support. In eastern philosophy, there is a concept of “reishi babies”, this is a beautiful quality observed in babies whose mothers took reishi during and after pregnancy.
Where does SuperFeast source their reishi?:
SuperFeast follow the ancient Di Dao philosophy when sourcing all their mushrooms, which means harvesting them from their spiritual homeland.

Thank you so much for this high-quality mushroom! Sending you a big virtual hug from Montréal." - Franziska
When taken alone, reishi provides a host of powerful health benefits but if you'd like to amplify its effects, there are a number of great medicinal mushrooms that pair perfectly with it.
Teelixir is another one of my favourite suppliers of medicinal mushrooms. Following the same Di Dao philosophy when harvesting their mushrooms, their Reishi powder helps promote mental well-being health benefits, calmness, and helps cultivate more peace, love and happiness in one's life.
Life Cykel is another producer of medicinal mushroom extracts that I love and use frequently - the major difference being that they produce liquid extracts instead of powders. some people prefer this as it can be easier to mix with liquids, or simply dropped onto the tongue!
Lions Mane is another powerful medicinal mushroom for helping soothe anxiety, supporting the brain and nervous system. This works great with reishi to help improve concentration and keep you on task.

Wrapping It All Up...
This "Tree Of Life" mushroom is one of the most widely researched medicinal mushrooms not just because of its growing popularity in Western medicine, but also because of its effectiveness.
If you are looking to really boost your immune system while also taking care of your nervous system, calming the mind and spirit, then Reishi is a great place to start!
SuperFeast as a company are fantastic to deal with but also extremely knowledgeable and generous with sharing the knowledge. They take great care sourcing their products and very transparent about the whole process.
