Information of Reishi Mushroom Extract
Reishi Mushroom Extract is made from the fruiting body of Ganoderma lucidum, also known as Ling-Zhi(in Chinese) which is a purplish-brown fungus with a long stalk, brown spores, and a fan-shaped cap with a shiny, varnish-coated appearance.Ganoderma lucidum grows on decaying wood or tree stumps, preferring the Japanese plum tree but also found on oak.The mushroom is native to China, Japan, and North America but is cultivated throughout other Asian countries. Cultivation of ganoderma lucidum is a long, complicated process.
Reishi Mushroom Extract may possess some anti-tumor, immunomodulatory activities, supported by some studies on polysaccharides, terpenes, and other bioactive compounds isolated from fruiting bodies and mycelia of this fungus.The mechanisms by which ganoderma lucidum extract may affect cancer are unknown and may target different areas of cancer development: inhibition of angiogenesis (formation of arterial vessels within the tumour) mediated by cytokines, cytoxicity, inhibiting migration of the cancer cells and metastasis, and inducing and enhancing apoptosis of tumor cells.
Variation between preparations and potential negative side effects cannot be ruled out. Reishi Mushroom Extract may be adaptogenic, anti-allergenic and anti-hypertensive due to the presence of triterpenes. Apart from these properties, ganoderma lucidum extract has been found to be anti-inflammatory, antiviral, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, antidiabetic, anti-hypotensive, and protective of the liver. Ganoderma lucidum has also been found to inhibit platelet aggregation, and to lower blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar.
Ganoderma Lucidum Extract may act as a blood pressure stabilizer, antioxidant, analgesic, a kidney and nerve tonic. It has been used in bronchitis prevention and in cardiovascular treatment, and in the treatment of high triglycerides, high blood pressure, hepatitis, allergies, chemotherapy support, HIV support, and fatigue and altitude sickness.
