Reishi mushroom, also known as the “medicine of kings” and the “elixir of life,” is an incredible medicinal food.

Additionally, reishi is known for its ability to protect the body from radiation damage and ease the painful symptoms of chemotherapy.
Reishi is a powerful weight loss tool as it can help cleanse a fatty liver and reduce edema and bloating. It is also incredible for cardiovascular health as it helps to improve circulation and increase blood flow to the heart. By reducing plaque on the arterial walls and reducing blood cholesterol, reishi helps to prevent heart attacks, strokes, and preventing blood clots.
Furthermore, reishi helps to calm the nervous system and contains anti-inflammatory properties which help with all manner of chronic illnesses.
Raw honey is very high in critical minerals such as calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, chromium, molybdenum, and manganese. It is one of the most adaptogenic foods on the planet. In its raw form, honey is a powerful weapon against illness and infections.
Because bees collect from plant species all over, the fructose and glucose in raw honey contain over 200,000 undiscovered phytochemical compounds, including pathogen killers, phytochemicals that protect you from radiation damage, and anti-cancerous phytochemicals. Raw honey can actually stop cancer in its tracks.

Honey is truly a medicinal gift to our planet.
