Healthy Coffee at Katie's Natural Way

 

Just got up and did not have my Gano Excel healthy coffee yet -
So? I just woke up.
Paul. It's the gospel truth! Feel free to use my name, too. It's hard to believe that I am not tired at all today! And..last night, I was up a few times so it's not like it's because I"m well rested! I figured that if we can raise 11 children, homeschool, run a ministry and home business...then this shouldn't be too hard to add to the mixture (or so I think! LOL) I am absolutely loving the product, Paul. I really DO feel a difference in energy...I'm 6 months pregnant and get tired (I'll be 40 this year...bound to get tired!)..today I AM NOT TIRED!

I did some research on Ganoderma and found it to be safe in pregnancy. Perhaps all my pregnant friends could benefit :-). God bless! Wendy -- Feb 2006

Reishi - Ganoderma Lucidum

Called the "mushroom of immortality", this fungus is considered by Chinese medicine to be a qi tonic and longevity promoter. Considerable research has confirmed reishi's ability to enhance immune response.

"It treats fatigue, respiratory complaints, heart disease and liver ailments" says Efrem Korngold, O.M.D., L.A.C.

Improves immune funstion - has antioxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-carcinogenic properties - reduces cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar.

Reishi may cause dizziness, skin irritation, diarrhea, or constipation and interfere with blood clotting. Pregnant and nursing women should not take it. Use as advised by a TCM practitioner.

1.5 to 9 grams of dried mushroom daily; in tincture, 1 ml. a day; in powder form, 1 to 1.5 grams daily.

The mushroom shows definate anti-bacterial and anti-viral activity, concluded several Korean studies, two of them published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology. Meanwhile, a report in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry illustrates reishi's potency as an antioxidant. Labratory and animal studies in Japan and at the Methodist Research Institute in Indianapolis indicate that the mushroom may surpress the growth of leukemia and cancers of the breast, prostate, colan, and throat. It also helps prevent internal blood clots and decrease blood sugar, according to Chinese researches. Studies in the United States and Switzerland, respectively, suggest that reishi lowers blood pressure and reduces cholesterol.

Powerful Brew


Q I was diagnosed with acid reflux disease and found it unbearably uncomfortable. My doctor prescribed Nexium, but that medication did not last the 24 hours it was supposed to. My mother bought a product called reishi coffee for me. After one day, I noticed a great reduction in my symptoms. The burning sensation, the nausea, the horrible taste in my mouth all disappeared within two weeks. I found that it has a wonderful effect on my acne as well. I was hoping you could tell me more about it. N.C., via e-mail

A The beverage you describe is simply coffee blended with reishi (also called lingzhi). It is a tasty way to get reishi into the diet. Your results are not at all unusual for this famous East Asian mushroom.

Coffee that’s good for you? A cup of reishi can stop acid reflux and clear acne.

Reishi ( Ganoderma Lucidium ) grows in coastal areas of China and is found on decaying logs and tree stumps. Brewed as a beverage, the dried mushroom actually has an earthy taste, like coffee, so the flavors are compatible. This beverage is a common commercial tea preparation in Asia.

Reishi mushroom is lauded for its digestive properties. It promotes liver function, which can play a role. The starchy nature of its constituents has a coating effect in the gut. In a study published in 2002, rats were given stomach ulcers and then treated with reishi polysaccharides, which produced a healing effect on the mucous membranes. The anti-inflammatory properties can also help with acid stomach.

Considered “the mushroom of immortality and spiritual potency,” reishi is well know as an adaptogen (a general tonic for long term stamina). It is arguably the most revered herbal substance in Asia, surely ranking with ginseng as the elite medicine of choice. It has been used by Asian hermits, monks, Taoist adepts and spiritual seekers. In Chinese medicine, reishi is used to prolong life. Experiments with mice have confirmed this effect.

Reishi also enhances physiological resistance to stress. Many of my colleagues reach for reishi as their first herb of choice for promoting a sense of balanced energy and calm mood. It treats insomnia long-term.

Reishi has demonstrated immune support in numerous studies. It has anti-tumor activity, as well as being antiviral and antibacterial. One study found that reishi tea reduces pain from shingles. It broadly reduces allergic reactions, and is used by herbalists for food allergies. The immune effects are thought to be largely from its polysaccharides, which are also the active ingredients in Echinacea and astragalus.
Reishi has analgesic, nervine relaxant and anti-allergic effects (inhibiting histamine release and all types of hypersensitivity reactions). It is an antioxidant; and it regenerates liver tissue that has been lost due to liver necrosis or hepatitis. In one study, 355 patients diagnosed with hepatitis B showed improvements in liver enzymes and improved symptoms. Reishi is more effective in cases in which the liver impairment is not considered severe.

Reishi is cardiotonic and promotes blood circulation. Active ingredients reduce platelet stickiness. Ganoderic acids, which have a molecular structure similar to steroid hormones, may lower blood pressure as well as decrease LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. These specific triterpenoids also help reduce platelet stickiness.

Reishi is anti-inflammatory, so the benefits to your acne are not surprising. Drink two cups per day of reishi coffee, brewed according to label instructions. Take 3 to 10 gm of reishi per day, brewed as a tea, or in capsules.

Reishi has anti-tumor activity, as well as being antiviral and antibacterial.

An excellent article about Reishi appeared in:
Health Foods Business
"Rei-Shi: Ancient Medicine is Modern Hope"
by Linda McGlasson, Assistant Editor

WHY IS REISHI SO SPECIAL?

The status of Reishi in the health food industry is unparalleled. It is the culmination of the knowledge and wisdom of the East and West for 5,000 years. Its effectiveness as a health food and as a highly potent medicine have been demonstrated by over 30 years of modern scientific research in Japan, Taiwan, China, U.S.A., Canada, and Poland. Backed by 5,000 years of accumulated experience, Reishi can safely claim to be totally free from side-effects. The wide range of health benefits we can receive from Reishi is also unmatched. As it was so rare, Reishi was available only to emperors in ancient times. The first emperor of China, Shih Huang Ti, sent a fleet with 250 young men and 250 young ladies to Japan in search of the herb of longevity, which is Reishi.

Reishi is the king of adaptogens. It is superior to Ginseng. Adaptogens share three important properties:

1. Non-toxic and free from side-effects.
2. Non-specific, acting on the entire body.
3. Normalizes physiological functions.

Reishi contains 800-2,000 ppm of organic germanium, which is 4-5 times more than Ginseng. Germanium is a trace element with adaptogenic functions.

Active Ingredients: Modern medical research in the East and West have identified some of the physiological actions of Reishi. Chemical analysis has revealed that Reishi contains:

§ High Molecular Weight Polysaccharides
§ Triterpenes
§ Organic Germanium
§ Adenosine
§ Amino Acids
§ Vitamins

In addition to all of the ingredients in the fruit body, Reishi mycelium contains:

§ Higher level of RNA disrupts viral diseases thru interferon production
§ Oleic Acid, an inhibitor of histamine release
§ Cyclooctasulfur, a strong inhibitor of histamine release
§ LZ-8, an immunomodulating protein which significantly reduces, but doesn't
entirely shut down, antibody production

An excellent definitive work on Reishi is "Reishi Mushroom, Herb Of Spiritual Potency And Medical Wonder" by Dr. Terry Willard, Ph.D., member of the Canadian Government's Expert Advisory Committee on Herbs and Botanical Preparations. Also very informative is the Chinese book, "Lingzhi and Health, Vol. I-III" edited by Dr. Shiuh-Sheng Lee, Professor of Biochemistry at National Yang-Ming University School of Medicine, Taipei, Taiwan.

Coffee Is No. 1 Source of Antioxidants


Americans Get More Antioxidants From Coffee Than Any Other Food or Beverage
By Jennifer Warner, WebMD Medical News
Reviewed By Michael Smith, MD on Monday, August 29, 2005

Aug. 28, 2005 -- Your morning cup of coffee may provide more than just a caffeine jolt -- it could be your most valuable source of disease-fighting antioxidants.
A new study shows coffee is the No. 1 source of antioxidants in the American diet.
"Americans get more of their antioxidants from coffee than any other dietary source. Nothing else comes close," says researcher Joe Vinson, PhD, a chemistry professor at the University of Scranton, in a news release.
Antioxidants are found naturally in many foods and beverages and are thought to provide health benefits in preventing diseases such as heart disease and cancer by fighting cellular damage caused by free radicals in the body. Free radicals are damaging substances that are produced through normal bodily processes.
Coffee Provides More Antioxidants Than Fruit?
Fruits and vegetables are hailed as the richest sources of antioxidants, but this study shows that coffee is the main source from which most Americans get their antioxidants.
Vinson says high antioxidant levels in foods and beverages don't always translate into high antioxidant levels in the body. He says the potential health benefits of antioxidants depend largely on how they are absorbed and used by the body, and that's a process that is still poorly understood by researchers.
Researchers calculated the top sources of antioxidants based on the average U.S. per capita consumption of 100 food and beverages containing the compounds.
The results showed that based on both antioxidant content per serving size and frequency of consumption, coffee came out on top, topping other popular sources of antioxidants, such as tea, chocolate, and fruit.
Where Americans Get Their Antioxidants
After coffee, the study showed the other top 10 sources of antioxidants in the American diet were:
· Black tea
· Bananas
· Dried beans
· Corn
· Red wine
· Beer (lager style)
· Apples
· Tomatoes
· Potatoes
Researchers say both caffeinated and decaf versions of coffee appear to provide similar amounts of antioxidants. But they say these results shouldn't be interpreted as an excuse to increase your daily java dose for your health's sake.
For example, Vinson says antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables offer much more in terms of total nutrition due to their higher content of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. He says dates, cranberries, and red grapes contain the highest concentration of antioxidants per serving size of all fruits, but Americans don't consume nearly as much of these fruits as they do coffee.
The study, which was primarily funded by the American Cocoa Research Institute, was presented this week at the American Chemical Society Meeting in Washington.


Kudos to Coffee
By Willow Lawson - September 13th 2005

Remember when coffee was the enemy? That was only about five or six years ago. Many of us looked down our noses at java addicts, clucking about the stress, high blood pressure and even heart disease that drinkers might be inflicting upon themselves.

How times have changed! Today we know that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of Type 2 diabetes, a disease that's poised to be a huge health threat in the fattest of Western nations. Moreover, it's the coffee drinkers who are most addicted to the brew that seem to reap the most benefit.

Nowadays we also know that coffee gives one's mood a significant boost. Java enthusiasts have a lower risk of suicide. Just one cup of coffee per day seems to do the trick. Coffee also increases mental agility in the elderly and boosts physical performance in athletes. It also seems to protect against Parkinson's disease, colon and liver cancer.
Now comes news for people who still aren't convinced: Coffee is the number one source of cell-protecting antioxidants in the U.S. diet, according to a study by researchers at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania. Of a study of 100 foods -- including tea, chocolate and cranberries -- coffee outranked them all.

"Nothing else comes close," says study leader Joe Vinson, Ph.D., a chemistry professor at the university. Both decaf and regular coffee have similar antioxidant levels, according to the study. Dates were the only food to outrank coffee in antioxidant concentration, says Vinson. But because Americans are not nearly as fond of dates as they are of coffee, java came out on top due to sheer popularity.

The study is the first to find that coffee packs such a powerful punch in terms of antioxidants. These tiny molecules help neutralize the body's free radicals -- highly reactive molecular fragments that, left to their own devices, undermine normal body processes by attacking cell membranes and the genetic material contained inside cells.
Free radicals accumulate in tissue as a result of normal metabolic activity, exposure to toxins and age. The damage they do is collectively known as oxidative stress, and it is thought to cause cancer and other age-related diseases.
Researchers say the study isn't license to cut down on the other healthy foods that also contain antioxidants in abundance, including dark berries, colorful vegetables and chocolate. Each provides a different antioxidant, of which there are hundreds, even thousands.

But Vinson says that researchers are learning that high levels of antioxidants in food don't necessarily translate into benefits for the human body. Scientists still don't quite understand how antioxidants are absorbed and used by the body.

So for now, we can all sing coffee's praises. But researchers caution that the latest java news doesn't mean that the more coffee, the better. Vinson still advocates moderation. "One to two cups a day appear to be beneficial," he says. If you don't like coffee, consider drinking black tea, which is the second most consumed antioxidant source in the U.S. diet, Vinson says. Bananas, dry beans and corn placed third, fourth and fifth, respectively.
Word is getting out, it seems. Even with a Starbucks seemingly on every other corner, coffee is still increasing in popularity in the U.S. More than half of all Americans drink it every day.
