Calming Reishi Smoothie

Reishi - the mushroom of immortality.

This saprophyte has so many benefits - for immunity, for liver function and for spiritual practises. Many people throughout history have noted that it appears to calm the spirit and support a restful sleep and new research is showing that it does indeed appear to support a healthy balanced outlook and sleep cycle. So may be kind of helpful for those of us that tend to err on the highly strung side of life!
