Dear friends we share some information about reishi mushroom:
Reishi mushroom has been one of the most celebrated functional mushrooms in Eastern cultures for thousands of years. Its earliest reference is in Chinese medical literature where it is reverently called the “Elixir of Life” and the “Mushroom of Immortality.” Its Chinese name, Ling Zhi, means “divine fungus” or “herb of spiritual potency,” a reference to the adaptogenic nature of this highly coveted tonic.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine reishi is known as a “three treasure” herb that harmonizes jing (life force), qi (energy), and shen (spirit).
Researchers have isolated hundreds of polysaccharides and triterpene compounds from reishi.
Polysaccharides have been shown to both potentiate and modulate the immune system—acting to support and balance. Triterpenes have demonstrated adaptogenic effects that support blood pressure management, help to regulate mood, and calm allergies and inflammation. Reishi has also been reported to support endocrine function and hormonal balance.
Reishi has been one of the most widely known and highly regarded staples in the medicine of many Eastern cultures for almost 2,000 years. Known for its kidney-shaped caps and shiny red-brown hue, reishi’s formal taxonomic name, Ganoderma lucidum, derives from the Greek roots ganos, meaning “brightness, sheen,” derma or “skin,” and lucidum, which means “glowing.” The mushroom typically grows on decaying hardwood trees in the temperate forest areas of Asia, Europe, South America, and the United States.
Reishi mushrooms contain macronutrients: protein, complex carbohydrates, and a small amount of fat. Rich in minerals, including potassium, phosphorus, zinc, and manganese, reishi also provides essential micronutrients.
In addition, research scientists have identified about 400 bioactive compounds that include polysaccharides, triterpenoids, nucleotides, sterols, steroids, fatty acids, and proteins/peptides.
Contains Powerful Antioxidants
Antioxidant polysaccharides like those found in reishi can neutralize free radicals: atoms, molecules, and ions produced normally as a result of many cellular processes.
Reishi is often regarded for several cardioprotective properties. Researchers have reported that active compounds in reishi, especially triterpenes, can support blood pressure and cholesterol management. Reishi supports blood flow and oxygen consumption in the cardiac muscle.
Boost the Immune System
One of the most important effects of the reishi mushroom is that it can boost your immune system. It can affect the genes in white blood cells, which are critical parts of your immune system. Research in cancer patients has shown that some of the molecules found in the mushroom can increase the activity of a type of white blood cell called natural killer cells.
