Reishi mushroom is recommended as preventive measure rather than a cure and the best solution to modern day symptoms and illnesses such as diabetes, asthma, cancer, arthritis, arteriosclerosis, immune deficiency, fatigue, high blood pressure, stomach and liver disorders, nervousness, stress, insomnia and others.
Regular intake of Reishi mushroom will not only help to prevent the occurrence of these ailments, but prevent one's body from degenerating too fast. Reishi mushroom is indeed regarded as the solution to mankind's miseries. Reishi has the ability to reduce the cholesterol level, normalize blood pressure, regulate circulatory and respiratory systems. It has a strong antihistamine action that can help control and cure allergies.
Mountain climbers frequently use Reishi mushroom to combat altitude sickness and it is contained in many of the performance enhancing herbal formulas used by Chinese athletes.
Reishi mushroom contains several major constituents, including steroids, coumarin, mannitol, polysaccharides, triterpenoids called ganoderic acids etc. Ganoderic acids may lower blood pressure as well as decrease cholesterol. These specific triterpenoids also help reduce blood platelets from sticking together which is an important factor in lowering the risk for coronary artery disease. In numerous studies it is demonstrated that Reishi mushroom has effective properties in serum cholesterol reduction and improving of blood circulation.
The analyses of blood samples taken from patients suffering from any form of allergy have demonstrated a high concentration of allergen (antibody). Chronic bronchitis, asthma, typical dermatitis, allergic maxillary, sinusitis, chronic hepatitis, chronic nephritis etc. are the most difficult to treat. They are allergy-related one way or another and are generally treated by cortisone, a substance that is naturally produced in the body. The studies show that if this substance is artificially introduced to the system continuously than the normal kidney functions are jeopardised and the organ itself starts suffering.
LANOSTAN found in Reishi mushroom can suppress the over-active allergen production.
With the build up of protein or fatty acids in the blood stream the level of cholesterol rises up to 300 mg/dl (normal level is between 130 and 230 mg/dl and the protein level showing over 1000 mg/dl (normal level being 230 - 500 mg/dl). In the cases of high level of cholesterol, the viscosity of blood becomes thick and the heart muscle has to pump harder to transport blood especially to the extremities. This increases the heart load and elevates the blood pressure; it increases both the systolic and diastolic measures. It slows down the function of circulatory system resulting in stiffness of the joints and shoulders, insomnia, anxiety attacks, dizziness, fatigue and in no time this can lead to arteriosclerosis which is linked to hypertension, stroke, cardiac attacks, obesity, lung and liver diseases etc.
The improvement of blood circulation is imperative and anticoagulants are prescribed. Reishi mushroom is a natural anticoagulant.
