RED REISHI, THE "MUSHROOM OF IMMORTALITY", WORKS ANTI-INFLAMMATORY WONDERS ON THE CELLS, AND HAS BEEN USED TO INCREASE VITALITY AND LONGEVITY FOR 2000 YEARS.
For untold centuries, Asian tradtional medicine used Red Reishi with such consistent success, its appeared officially as a listed medicine in the 16th century's Ben Cao Gang Mu; the Ming Dynasty's sanctioned encyclopedia of natural healing agents. In fact, the Ganoderma lucidum mushoom's profile of busy bioactivesterpenoids, steroids, phenols, nucleotides, glycoproteins, and polysaccharidesmake it a natural adaptogen. One cancer reseaerchers are watching closely.
In plants, triterpenes are a contributor to disease resistance. Of the 100 triterpenes known to occur in G. lucidum (Red Reishi), more than 50 were found to be new and unique to this fungus. It would seem this mushroom has a singular mission.
MUSHROOM WITH A VIEW
Auto-digested reishi (ADR) extract has been shown in clinical studies to lower the systolic pressure in test subjects, making Red Reishi a target of much clinical interest for treatment of hypertension.
Reishi mushrooms release controlled and natural cell toxins of the type that identify and remove from the body cells that have harmfully mutated, or that have suffered the sort of oxidative or inflammatory damage that precedes disease outbreak in the body.
Red Reishi mushrooms act as a modulator in the body, regulating the natural balance between the body's numerous, and frequently bantering, functions. This isn't a reference to a mystical "balance", but a physical one - the delicate chemical and metabolic equilibirum our moving parts are ever seeking.
An asthma study at Mount Sinai Hospital included Ganaderma lucidum extract in a steroid-free, anti-inflammation compound of traditional Chinese herbs that was found to be as effective as corticosteroids in the treatment of asthma.
BETA-D-GLUCANS. REMEMBER THE NAME.
Beta-D-Glucans, a particular type of polysaccharides in Red Reishi, seem to give a shot of chemical confidence to the immune system in the fight against cancer. The mechanism is unclear, though the anti-inaflammatory brilliance of polysaccharides certainly address the cellular inflammatory nature of certain cancers.
Red Reishi has been shown in clinical studies to have a protective effect on livers damaged by alcohol. Since ethanol-related liver damage is specifically traced to the flood of what are called superoxides in the liver, the antioxidant properties of Red Reishi both prevent and repair the injured liver in these cases.
WE'RE CATCHING UP
2000 years into Red Reishi's long history as traditional medicine, today's serious-browed scientists are excitedly codifying Red Reishis health effects in lengthy, peer-reviewed scientific journals. Picture an old lady in burlap using Red Reishi in the year 5 B.C. We just caught up with her.
THE FUNGUS AMUNGUS
YOU ARE PART SHROOM
Go back far enough and you were sharing a cell with fungus. Then 1.1 billion years ago, the single-celled plant-thing went one way and the single-celled fungus/animal thing went another. It would take 9 million more years for this unicellular life-form to fork yet again into two separate kingdoms; Animalia and Fungi. Surprise!
MADLY CURIOUS SCIENTISTS
The Red Reishi mushroom has a 2,000 year-old reputation in Asian culture as a 5-star natural healing agent. So it was that the Chinese Academy of Medical Science chose the ancient fungal miracle worker for the equivalent of a grand genetic shampoo-and-set; that is, a complete chromosome-level analysis of its genome. Red Reishi's historical effects were that striking.
The Chinese scientific establishment (along with its project partners in the U.S. and France) looked at Red Reishis long, long, [long] record of success in the realm of traditional medicine, and wondered how the bleep does this thing work? Not to mention the more pointed questioncan we plumb the Ganoderma lucidum genome sufficiently, map and understand it so completely, that we may synthesize powerful medicines based on its chemistry?
Among many other somewhat jaw-dropping lab discoveries, contemporary scientific studies of Red Reishi have stunned cancer researchers on several fronts, as well. Two 2005 studies showed the mushrooms polysaccharides and triterpenes to have measurable chemopreventive and/or tumoricidal effects in animal and human studies, for instance.
Today, the State Pharmacopoeia of the Peoples Republic of China recommends the mushroom for dizziness, insomnia, irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, and many other symptoms; up to and including some of todays most significant disorders. Its all about this hard-working mushrooms inherent free-radical taming properties.
