The Red-belted conk looks intruiging Lars

The Reishi in prepared form - what is that used for?

It might be easier to do some Googling.
Like many Chinese Herbs, Reishi is highly thought of by some, but for others they don't think there's sufficient Western Research to confirm identifiable actions or benefits.

Even though you can buy it in many shops, it's usually best initially sought via a qualified Chinese herbalist (there are plenty of Westerners who've now qualified).
They can check your current health & any contraindications.

I agree.

This image reminds me of the many trees to be seen in southern coastal areas in New Zealand's South Island where trees have virtually no branches on the windward side.  Nature is quite  tenacious.

Heres some from a walk yesterday
The first time I've come across this particular bit of wildlife, devouring the remaining life from a fallen tree

Many thanks Colin - also for your explanation about Reishi. The relatively new field of medicine/science regarding our microbial gut health is fascinating and I read that fungi in our guts are very important components that have benefits.

Thanks, Colin and Hugh. The tree was on a cliff on the west of the Cherbourg Peninsula. That area also has a tidal range of up to ten metres twice a day.

 Yes, plus visual impact and reminder of human brain connections. Works very well.
