Reishi MushroomReishi Mushroom, also known as Lingzhi mushroom in China, has been used in traditional medicine for over 2000 years and has been sought after for the treatment of ailments ranging from those of the cardiovascular system to those of the nervous systems. It has widely been thought to increase physical stamina and overall health. Reishi has one of the most extensive documentations and histories in Traditional Chinese Medicine and ranks amongst one of the greatest overall remedies like Ginseng and Cordyceps caterpillar fungus.Normal temperature physical breaking technology is applied to break-open the tough covering or "husk" within a chamber. This (cold) processing method ensures that up to 98% of the Spores can be successfully shell-broken. Most importantly, it also ensures that all the medicinal properties or trace elements are not destroyed.1-4 kg of spores is supposed to be collected for every 100kg of Ganoderma Lucidum.
the common Ganoderma Lucidum preparations which are processed using heat, etc., will suffer the inevitable loss of some, or most of the important trace elements, etc, thus affecting its natural healing properties. These trace elements are the catalysts that can contribute to reinforcing the healing process. That is why spore powder in its natural form possesses the efficacy or curative power that is ten times greater than those of the common Ganoderma Lucidum preparations.With this new discovery, the said "Spore Powder" finally made it into the Chinese Pharmacopoeia as an herbal dietary supplement with extremely high curative properties.Constituents of Shell-Broken Reishi Spore Powder:
Scientific studies showed that Reishi/Ganoderma is rich in active pharmaceutical components, there are about a thousand compounds found in Ganoderma Lucidum and its spore, that can be divided into 10 different categories, including Ganoderma Lucidum polysaccharides, Ganoderma Lucidum triterpenes,Ganoderma Lucidumpolypeptides, 16 types of amino acids (7 of which are indispensable to humans), proteins, steroids, mannitol, coumarin, alkaloids, organic acids (mainly fumarate), and micro-elements such as Ge, P, Fe, Ca, Mn, Zn, etc. The substances that have key physiological activity are trierponoides, polysaccharide, nucleotides, animo-acid, micro-element, organic-germanium and alkaloids, etc.Benefits of Shell-Broken Reishi Spore Powder:
1. Adjusting immunity
Reishi can significantly improve the macrophage phagocytosis index and phagocytosis percentage, and the stronger the activity of macrophages, the higher the body's immunity. Macrophages play an important role in the immune system, not only related to the specific immune, are also associated with the body's nonspecific immune defense mechanism. The phagocytosis of macrophages is the body's mainly defense mechanisms against foreign bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. It is also one of the important mechanism of the anti-tumor effect.
It has been confirmed by many scientists that the Anti-tumor function of Reishi is through enhancing the immunologic function. The active compounds in Reishi, especially polysaccharose and triterpenes, could improve body's nonspecific immunity, enhance the immunity of the body cells and body fluids, so as to promote the generation of cellular immune factors, then produce the effect of inhibiting tumor. And also, experiment has confirmed that the active components of Reishi is no direct cell poison effect, but it can enhance the body's anti-tumor immunity, and indirect inhibition of tumor cell growth and induce tumor cells apoptosis, and thus may play a role of anti-tumor.3. Improve cardiovascular disease
Reishi extract has obvious cardiotonic effect. It can strengthen the myocardial contraction force, increase the myocardial contraction amplitude and discharge, improve myocardial cell hypoxia ability. Reishi can also improve the blood circulation in coronary artery, increase coronary artery flow. And coronary artery expansion, can increase myocardial nutritional blood flow and improve myocardial circulation, and can prevent platelet activity, inhibiting platelet aggregation, prevent coronary atherosclerosis plaque formation, improve the function of adrenal cortex, and delay the atherosclerosis plaque, prevent myocardial infarction.4. Enhance metabolism
Reishi has the ability to promote the pancreas producing insulin, accelerating blood microcirculation of the pancreas skin, improving the pancreas' function. Then to correct the body's metabolism disorders of the sugar, protein, fat, to restore the original state of metabolic balance.Besides, it has been researched that Reishi can improve liver function, promote the blood circulation, adjust immune system. Reishi can also accelerate the elimination of the toxins and heavy metals, and can improve human stimulate lymphocyte transformation index, increase the PHA skin test in patients with chronic hepatitis.Other researchers has been claimed that taking Reishi can excite hematopoietic system, promote bone marrow hematopoietic function and promote the biosynthesis of the Bone marrow proteins, RNA, and DNA,etc. Reishi also can increase the amounts of hemoglobin, red blood cells, reticulate red blood cell, platelet and white blood cells, against white blood cells decline caused by chemical drugs.
Generally hepatitis refers to liver tissue damage caused by excessive toxic violation or Hepatitis b virus attacks. No matter before or after liver damage happened, taking Reishi can protect the liver and reduce the damage to the liver.
The formation of free Radicals, will accelerate the aging of human body. Reishi extract has obvious antioxidant capacity, can obviously inhibit the heart and liver lipid peroxidation effect, reducing tissue injury. Reishi can also reduce serum lipid peroxidation and obviously increase the activity of erythrocyte superoxide dismutase (SOD), then clear the super oxygen anion free radicals in the body. Tests have been proved that the Reishi could promote DNA synthesis, extend the genetic cell division algebra, prolong the life of cells, so as to slow down the ageing process.
Specifically, Reishi can improve Insomnia, fatigue, poor memory, concentration, headache, dizziness, tinnitus, bosom frowsty, excitable and other symptoms. Because Reishi contains high content of active polysaccharides, ganoderma acid, adenine nucleoside, adenine, etc.
7. Improve Neurological Symptom
Reishi has a very good effect to improve nerve function, treatment of neurasthenia and other neurosis.
Clinical trials also has proved that even though Reishi for the treatment of insomnia is not faster than the western medicine, continue taking Reishi, its efficacy is very stable and without any side effects. Not only do it improve the symptoms of patients with insomnia, but meanwhile there are significant improvements of patient's state of mind, appetite and general condition.
8. Enhance Sexual Function
Reishi contains more than 17 kinds of amino acids, a variety of trace elements, vitamins and other nutrients necessary to human body health.
On the one hand, duo to the effects of clearance of oxygen free radicals, Reishi can prevent the formation of lipid peroxide in the gonads and accumulation, so as to slow down the sexual function recession. On the other hand, for the patients with sexual function recession, Reishi can improve the ability to remove lipid peroxide, strengthen the function of gonad, improve sexual function recession, meanwhile it also can improve the semen insufficient, low sexual function, senile failure, energy loss and other symptoms.
