Reishi is one of the most studied herbs in the world, and is highly regarded in Eastern medicine. Western science recognises reishi as a powerful immune herb and as an adaptogen (for its ability to help us adapt to stress).
The use of reishi in pregnancy is steeped in tradition and empirical knowledge, having been used for thousands of years. Traditional uses saw reishi providing a calming anchor for mothers during pregnancy, as well as during the birthing process.
Reishi is a very gentle and nourishing adaptogen. It’s beneficial to calm both mother and baby and help reduce anxiety, sleeplessness and build the immune system.
As for using Reishi during postpartum - well it couldn't be more of a match made in heaven!
Reishi calms the nervous system, decreases levels of cortisol in the bloodstream, assists breastfeeding, improves mood, nutrient utilisation, immunity and sleep. Reishi can positively improve our connectedness to ourselves, as well as our mental and emotional wellbeing.
