What I love about Teelixir’s Reishi
The ease of taking Teelixir’s Reishi
As I write this I am sipping on a delicious smoothie I have added Teexlir’s Reishi to. It blends perfectly, whether it is in coffee, cacao, smoothies, or baking. It doesn’t clump together at all. Teelixir uses no fillers or grains, just pure Reishi powder so this makes it easy to add their Reishi to just about anything.
Reishi has a slightly bitter, earthy taste which I love! It’s easily disguised if you don’t like the taste and is not overpowering whatsoever.
The overall sense of calm
Shortly after consuming Reishi, I feel a beautiful sense of calm and relaxation. Not in a sleepy or foggy way, but in a gentle nourishing way. I love to have my Reishi as a Mushroom Latte before bed and find it helps me relax and unwind.
What would make me love it even more?
I would love to see Teelixir use Miron glass jars. At times I find it hard to completely close the pop-top lid on their current packaging. The use of Miron glass jars not only protects the product but would help to keep the freshness. I would also love to see the option of Reishi capsules in the future for those who prefer the ease of taking a capsule instead of mixing a powder.
The Juicy Stuff (The Health Benefits)
Reishi is a powerful adaptogen and one that is renowned for helping not only decrease stress but also deal with stress in a healthier, more balanced way.
Reishi is reported to help modulate the body’s response to stress by balancing levels of cortisol and adrenaline. A lot of the time, especially living in a fast-paced modern world, stress is unavoidable which is why I love having Reishi on hand to help overcome the stress quicker.
Some of Reishi’s most powerful compounds are Triterpenes. Triterpenes help to support the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest system) which helps to slow down the heart rate and relax muscles, therefore easing some of the symptoms of anxiety and stress.
Not only is Reishi amazing at reducing stress, but it may also help support overall mood and reduce feelings of depression and the feelings of fatigue often associated with depression or low mood.
The nourishing it provides the immune system
Reishi’s nutrient profile is dense and full of critical nutrients needed for a strong immune system. Reishi is high in Vitamin D, an essential vitamin for immune system function and overall well-being.
Just as essential as Vitamin D are B Complex vitamins which Reishi is also high in! Reishi is a fantastic source of B complex vitamins and amino acids that people sometimes lack while following a vegan or vegetarian diet. Although B vitamins are generally found in meat. Reishi, similar to oyster mushroom, is a complete food source of the primary B Complex vitamins -Thiamine, Riboflavin, Folic Acid, and Niacin.
Reishi mushrooms are also a rich source of beta-glucans, natural polysaccharides which are known to enhance immune function. Teelixir’s Reishi is also guaranteed potency: >35% Beta-D-Glucans <2% Starch. Beta Glucans also help to manage blood sugar levels whilst maintaining healthy gut bacteria.
The immune system benefits don’t stop there. Reishi is also shown to have antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties.

Who should not take Reishi?
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should always consult a health specialist or GP before taking any new herb or supplement.
How long will it take to feel the benefits?
I notice benefits very shortly after ingesting Reishi, however, everybody is a unique body so there is no clear-cut answer to this. You may at once feel benefits, or it may take a month or more to feel benefits. Just because you may not feel anything change right away, the change will start immediately internally. As with any health or lifestyle regime, consistency is key!
“Teelixirs Reishi is a must-have product when in need of calmness. Quality product, reasonably priced. Thank you Teelixir” -Susanne. B
“This Reishi is my favourite! I just mix it with hot water and consume it. I don’t have any issues with bitter taste, better to keep it pure and simple. I have tried a few different brands and they don’t compare to Teelixir” -Kadri.S
“This Reishi is the best taste and product! I have tried a few more but this I can drink by itself. Love the product. Very good quality.” -Daniela.M
Alternatives I think are worth considering.
Another fantastic brand with extremely high-quality Reishi powder (and capsules)
A delicious latte blend of Reishi, Cacao, and Rose
A great option if you’re looking to expand your relaxation stack. Ashwagandha is a very worthwhile option if you’re interested in similar benefits as Reishi
The Bottom Line
Reishi is a well-rounded adaptogenic mushroom that has been in use for thousands of years. I love the benefits it provides me and think it is an asset to have in any supplement cupboard. I’m confident when I shop with Teelixir I am getting a product of very high quality, even if they haven’t started using glass jars...yet!
I will be keeping Teelxir’s Reishi in my supplement stack for many years to come and would highly recommend you try it!
