Articles about Ganoderma Lucidum - REISHI Superior Herb
|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.

Coffee thats 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.

An excellent article about Reishi appeared in:
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.
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
In addition to all of the ingredients in the fruit body, Reishi mycelium contains:
§ Higher level of RNA disrupts viral diseases thru interferon 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.

-- Your morning cup of coffee may provide more than just a caffeine
jolt -- it could be your most valuable source of disease-fighting antioxidants.
Kudos to Coffee
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
