What are Reishi Mushrooms?
Ganoderma (Reishi) mushrooms have been used for over 2,000 years as the “Miraculous King of Herbs” in China and works as an adaptogen in the body, meaning it brings balance where the body needs balance and support and is great for immune system support.
The benefits of Reishi are pretty incredible and there are thousands of pub med studies on this medicinal mushroom documenting it can:
- help modulate blood sugar
- reduces inflammation
- helps heal leaky gut
- regulates pH levels
- immune modulator
- high in antioxidants
- reversing amyloid plaque in the brain in trial studies
- supports mood

My favorite way to consume Reishi Mushrooms
Organo is my go-to when it comes to getting the benefits of Reishi Spores which is offered in their King of Coffee product; which includes certified organic Coffee with Reishi spores which are the most potent part of the mushroom.
Organo is the only North American company that has partnered with the largest certified organic Ganoderma plantation in the World and uses mushrooms grown on logs (as you would find in nature vs some other companies) in the Wagyu Mountains in Asia. Organo has a patented process for the extraction of Reishi spores – meaning it cannot be duplicated.

What led me to try King Coffee?
2019 was the year my laundry list of annoying symptoms continued to add up- including acid reflux that became so severe, I could barely handle any foods or beverages without having some sort of reaction. At this point I realized regular coffee was a BAD trigger for me, leading to extremely painful acid reflux that anti-acids didn’t touch. I went on the quest to find a replacement but if you’re a coffee lover like me you know there is nothing that replaces that warm, soothing beverage to start your day – trust me I tried! I began with different herbal drinks like chicory root, dandelion root, you name it – it was a complete and utter disappointment.
As I’ve shared before, 2020 was the year I hired my practitioner and began to address the root cause of my healing journey. My practitioner was the first person I learned about Organo products through and it almost sounded too good to be true as I had tried other functional coffee options from local health food stores being less than impressed. It took me a few months of seeing her just casually sharing her favorite morning beverage and hearing others chime in on all the additional benefits they saw from incorporating Reishi products into their lives and I finally ordered a box thinking “ok it’s one box, it’s not that much money if I hate it” let me tell you, I didn’t even finish the box and I was signing up for the distributor membership they offer so I would never run out.
