Reishi mushroom has been reported to positively affect and improve the respiratory system because of its anti-inflammatory properties. It has also been shown to bind oxygen; high amounts of the oxygen-binding compound in the blood increases oxygen level of the blood and as such improves respiration in the body. (Matsumoto, 1979). Furthermore, due to the anti-inflammatory properties of reishi mushroom, it is widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a method to improve breathing and respiratory functions. If you are in an environment that reduces how much oxygen you receive, for example, being in high altitudes, consider high quality reishi mushrooms to support and improve the respiratory function and increase oxygenation in the blood!
