Study #1 - Ganoderma Lucidum
Since then numerous studies and
research has been geared towards the
Ganoderma mushroom and they
have shown remarkable results. According to the studies, the
mushroom increases respiratory performance in asthma patients as
well as reducing the effects of chemotherapy in cancer patients.
Some experts indicate that the fungus is useful in fighting AIDS;
research shows that the mushroom strengthens every region of the
immune system, however the way it works or why it works is yet to be
understood. The mushroom is the only producer of ganoderic acids,
which among other amino acids and proteins in the mushroom give an
overall enhanced immune system.
Scientists are still conducting
research by trying to isolate the elements that make up the mushroom
active ingredients; this will help in the development of more
effective treatments. The best way to release the active ingredients
in the mushroom is by soaking or adding powdered solution to boiling
water, thereafter allowing it to simmer for a lengthy period.
Moreover, the fungus is available as an additive to drink and food
products such as Ganoderma enhanced coffee, tea or chocolate. Under
extensive research carried out by scholars as well as clinical
experiments and medicinal studies the properties and working
principle of the mushroom is becoming clearer. It is widely known
that the extract alkalizes and oxygenates the body, which helps in
establishing good health and removing any kind of osteoblasts that
are degenerating. Moreover it adjusts the body pH to the required
level and helps in weight loss
Study #2 - Ganoderma Lucidum
Health benefits of Ganoderma
mushroom explained by a different author.
Ganoderma mushroom is a common name for a fungus species Ganoderma
lucidum, popularly known as
Reishi or Lingzhi. The fungus has
been utilized in different forms in the Asian continent and it is
believed to posses numerous healing powers. Medical research on the
fungus indicates that it has a wide range of medical applications,
however understanding its working principle has proven difficult.
The mushroom grows as a parasite
on lower trunks of deciduous trees such as maples. Although the
mushroom is known to grow all over the world, it is a rare species
and currently it is cultivated commercially. In terms of appearance
the mushroom morphs from one stage to the next, typically, it ranges
from brown or red brown but in other areas the colors have been
known to vary according to stage. Asian medical practitioners have
utilized the mushroom as a medicine for thousands of years.
Moreover, it was reserved for the royal family, as it was believed
to increase longevity. Some of the features of the fungus include
anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, immuno-therapeutic among other
beneficial features. According to research done by Japanese
scientist, mice with cancer were injected with extract from the
mushroom and after ten days of the study, the tumor dropped by 50%.
