Reishi MushroomHow Can Reishi Mushrooms Benefit You?
By Keith Kearney

It’s not a big secret that mushrooms have been known to be very good for you. Reishi mushrooms are one of the top three medicinal mushrooms that has been used for centuries in ancient Asian cultures. The great thing about the Reishi mushroom is the balance it gives to both your body and mind.

This ancient ingredient has been used to help treat many ailments such as liver disorders, bad circulation and for cardiovascular health. Though, the most common use for the Reishi mushroom is for people suffering from asthma or other respiratory problems. One study has shown that over two thousand people suffering from extreme bronchitis used these Reishi mushrooms in a cough syrup and almost all patients were feeling better within two weeks of this treatment.

This component has also shown that it can help improve hepatitis patients and reduce hypertension. One study testifies that nearly 92% of 355 study patients suffering from hepatitis showed improvement in their overall health. Though it helps treat many ailments, liver disease is the longest standing traditional utilization. Many chemotherapy patients have used Reishi mushrooms and noticed less intense side effects, such as fatigue, hair and appetite loss.

Studies today have found that the Reishi mushroom has anti-allergy, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties. There is a protein found in these mushrooms called Ling Zhi-8, meaning spirit plant, which is found to help reduce the risk of transplant rejections, and fight cancerous tumors.

The Reishi mushroom is not only known for helping to heal the body but is extremely beneficial for your mind and spirit as well. Users of this ingredient has experienced elevated moods, and have felt more spiritually balanced everyday that it’s used. Traditionally the mushroom is said to transform the individual into a more spiritual being. Peace of mind and balance is only one cup of coffee away.

Many people believe that if you habitually consume coffee, it ages you. Nobody wants to look into the mirror and see an older, coffee-drinking version of themselves. Reishi mushrooms have been shown to improve skin tone, reduce the amount of acne, fine lines and age spots! Picture you getting back that healthy glow just by drinking something you enjoy everyday.

No matter what you are going through these mushrooms can definitely make you feel more balanced and healthier everyday you are exposed to it. There are many ways to use these mushrooms including, syrups, soups, tablets and even injection. Now you don’t necessarily have to put a needle in your arm or eat mushroom soup just feel the good effects from these Reishi mushrooms.

All you have to do is drink one cup of coffee everyday to feel these benefits. Yes, I really just said coffee, something that most of us drink every single day. It’s just as good as any gourmet coffee without the high-risk side effects, but instead with added healing properties. Our healthy coffee has been grown and processed organically with Reishi mushrooms without the dangerous pesticides used for most coffee beans.

Reishi Mushrooms Red Whole (Ganoderma lucidum; Ling Zhi) 1 lb: C Reishi Mushrooms Red Whole (Ganoderma lucidum; Ling Zhi) 1 lb: C

This is Starwest’s nitrogen-flushed double wall silverfoil pack. Used as a decoction, extract, tincture, food additive and supplement. Reishi is a traditional tonic used to nourish, tonify, and supplement the whole body as it removes toxins and disperses accumulation. It calms and nourishes the nervous system, strengthens the lungs, protects and stimulates the liver and helps the body adapt to stress. The reishi mushroom is classified botanically as a polypore, a group of hard, woody, bracket-like mushrooms that decompose wood. Because of this hard and woody nature, reishi is not eaten, but cut into pieces and made into a thick, boiled tea, a decoction. This traditional water decoction involves boiling reishi at low temperatures for 2-6 hours. The water soluble compounds are left in the decoction and the mushroom pieces are discarded. A water decoction will contain most of the polysaccharides and some, but not all of the triterpenes. An alcoholic tincture, that is, an alcohol decoction, or, more properly, an aged alcohol soak, will contain both the water-soluble and most of the water insoluble elements. Considered among the most powerful natural healing herbs in Asia, Red Reishi was very rare and expensive to obtain until recently. Reishi is rich in active organic compounds such as polysaccharides, amino acids, proteins, triterpenes, ascorbic acid, sterols, lipids, alkaloids, a glucose, a courmarine glycoside, volatile oil, riboflavin and more. These compounds are being studied for their positive effects on the immune system, including anti-tumor activity. Asian cultures have also used Reishi, rendered in jade, as a talisman worn around the neck. Sometimes, whole dried Reishi are placed in the home to ward off evil. William B. Stavinoha & Neera Satsangi University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio: http://www.kyotan.com/lectures/lectures/Lecture4.html: Prospective and retrospectively collected data on men and women suggest that use of non steroidal antiinflammatory drugs is associated with reduced risk of Alzheimers disease. This research heightens the importance of the ancient reports where Ganoderma lucidum was praised for its effect of increasing memory and preventing forgetfulness in old age reported in Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing vol. 1 as early as 456-536 AD. Research on mice using orally or topically administered Ganoderma lucidum provides evidence that Ganoderma lucidum has anti-inflammatory activity. This pharmacological activity may provide the basis for its activity on memory in old age, although we do not know as yet that Ganoderma lucidum can enter the brain and exert antiinflammatory activity. In clinical studies Chang (1994) at Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center reported that applications of Ganoderma should be studied and considered for (1) chemoprophylaxis of cancer in individuals at high risk for developing cancer (2) adjuvent use in the prevention of metastasis or recurrence of cancer (3)
