Resihi is often used to help improve sleep, although the full extent of this health benefit is still being explored. If this is a benefit you hope to enjoy, you may consider taking Reishi in the evening after dinner, approximately an hour before bed time.
Reishi is often said to help boost immune functions, and many people use it as an immune system stimulant when they intend to travel or after they know they’ve been exposed to a virus or other illness. It may also be useful for helping to reset sleep cycles when travelling across different time zones.
One of the primary reasons that people take Reishi as a daily wellness supplement is to boost their immune functions. Although Reishi is best taken daily, you may want to consider extra doses when you're feeling a bit under the weather.
We recommend trying Reishi for yourself for a few days to understand how it impacts you. You can always adjust your dosage routine as needed. After you determine when's the best time to take Reishi for yourself, you just need to take it at the same time daily for optimal benefits.
Reishi may take effect in about an hour, although substantial effects are usually only seen after 1-2 weeks of consistent dosing. Like many other functional mushrooms, Reishi relies on a systemic effect in the body, so you need to make sure that you take it daily for optima benefits. Allow up to 3 weeks to notice the full benefits of your daily Reishi dosing routine.
The Reishi dosage used varies greatly from person to person and depends on a range of factors, like your weight, tolerance, and health conditions. Reishi contains bioactive compounds so it’s best to stick to a consistent dosing routine. The amount you should take for optimal benefits also depends on the form of Reishi you use– a steeped tea is less potent that a concentrated extract, such as a capsule or tincture.
Studies base therapeutic doses on a range from 1.5 to 9 milligrams of concentrate per day, though most people use doses around 3-4 milligrams per day. This may be best taken in one daily doses, but it is possible to break your Reishi dosage into two daily doses if needed. Taking it with food can help avoid any stomach upset or other possible reishi side effects.

We also recommend you keep track of when you take Reishi and how you feel at different intervals afterwards. For instance, how do you feel after thirty minutes, or an hour after dosing? You can record things like whether you felt relaxed or focused, or the different effects you feel when taking different doses. Then, use the information you recorded to adjust your dosage routine to meet your needs.
