Chicken Soup is one of our staples, this tasty and long touted liquid gold for health is whipped up when we have a cold or are feeling a bit under the weather, not only does it taste great, has lot's of nutrition and tastes great.
It's a delicious Soup that can be made during winter to nourish and support optimum health, and is light enough to lift and boost you into Spring and ward off the bugs that float around during the seasonal change.
The Reishi adds an extra boost that will help elevate, nourish and support health and longevity. As the Queen of Medicinal Mushrooms, it is truely one of our favourites, who's compounds can help reduce inflammation and fatigue, supporting the bodies ability to adapt and perform. So much to love about this historically made yumminess.
