Reishi mushrooms have inflammation-reducing properties that help with any sort of inflammation, and may help not only give you smooth skin but could also help strengthen your skin against all sorts of typical skin issues (acne, blemishes, spots, and more). Reishi mushrooms are known as the mushrooms of immortality for a reason; because of their antioxidant capacity, they prevent free radicals from binding with healthy cells, protecting and supporting a youthful look.
