HEALTH BENEFITS -GANODERMA/ REISHI
SUMMARY OF DR RANJAN's (an eminent cardiologist in India) compilation of Ganoderma Benefits. I interviewed him in Chennai in 2009 and I learnt a lot from him about the benefits of ganoderma for health.
Health Benefits of Ganoderma Lucidum/Reishi/Lingzhi
Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi or Lingzhi) is a powerful herb which has many beneficial effects in our body. The therapeutic effects of reishi are due to the powerful ingredients (more than 250). Reishi is being used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as a powerful herb (drug) for more than 5000 years. Because of its powerful healing effects, it has been called as King of Herbs and the Herb of immortality.
Reishi is a basidiomycete, lamellaless fungus belonging to the family of polyporaceae. In nature, it grows in densely wooded forests of high humidity and dim lighting. It is rarely found and flourishes mainly on the dried trunks of plum, guercus serrata or pasonia trees. Out of the 10,000 such trees, perhaps 2 or 3 will have Reishi growth. Reishi has been recorded to have the most powerful healing effects in Chinese pharmacopeia written in first century B.C.
Modern research has made it possible to cultivate reishi since 1972 and it is made available to everyone now. A number of developed countries are now conducting sophisticated research in reishi to study its therapeutic effects.
The ingredients in Reishi are classified under 5 major groups:
2. Organic Germanium
5. Ganoderic Essence
Some of the subfractions of the ingredients exert powerful biological effects in our body:
Ganodelan A,B,C HYPOGLYCEMIC
Ganoderic acids ACE inhibiting effect- reduces BP
Anti-tumor effect & immune-stimulant
Cholesterol synthesis inhibition
G-A Betaglucan Anti-tumor
Lingzhi 8 Anti-allergic & Anti-tumor effect
Adenosine Antiplatelet effect & Vasodilator, Analgesic effect & muscle relaxant
Uridine, Urasil Anti-viral
The following are powerful effects of Reishi:
Reishi has very powerful antioxidant effects. It is said that Reishi is 5 times more powerful than Ginseng. The powerful anti-oxidant effect is translated into health benefits. Anti-oxidants play a major role in the elimination of “free radicals” which are harmful to our body. Excessive free radicals production in our body can damage the cells which lead to diseases like Heart attack, Arthritis, Cancer etc. Reishi being a powerful anti-oxidant can act as anti-ageing. Reishi being a powerful antioxidant can be used to prevent these diseases.
Reishi has very powerful effects on the immune system and it is a powerful immunomodulator. It enhances the immunity by increasing the production of Interleukin 1 &2 and Interferon. By this effect, it can protect us, and children from many infections.
A group of chemicals known as Ganoderic acids and Polysacharides have immune-regulating effects and this effect can help in Autoimmune disorders (e.g. Rheumatoid arthritis). By enhancing our immunity, Reishi can kill cancer cells and this is a very powerful effect which can be used in the management of cancer.
Reishi has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. This effect can protect children from many infections, especially in malnourished children.
Reishi has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. This effect has been used in the treatment of inflammatory disorders to control pain and swelling (e.g. Arthritis). Reishi is also a natural safe pain killer.
Since we know that pain killers are toxic, Reishi can be used as effective safe pain killer. The anti-inflammatory effect has been proven to be beneficial in the treatment of inflammatory brain diseases like Alzheimers, Parkinsonism and degenerative diseases of the brain.
ANTI-PLATELET AND VASODILATING EFFECT
Reishi contains Adenosine and Guanosin which have antiplatelet effect. This antiplatelet effect can prevent clotting of blood and reishi can be used for prevention of heart attack. Reishi has vasodilatory effects, especially on the microcirculation. This effect helps to increase the blood flow to various organs and tissues. Adequate blood flow is absolutely necessary for organ function, especially in old age. Reishi by improving the blood flow, can protect various organ functions.
ACE INHIBITING EFFECT
Triterpines have been identified in Reishi which have ACE (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme) inhibiting effects. Ganoderic acid faction F has the highest effect. ACE Inhibiting effect reduces Blood Pressure and also helps the heart in improving the pumping (contracting). Reishi balances the Blood Pressure and helps to maintain normal BP.
LANOSTAN present in Reishi has anti-allergic effect. Reishi stabilizes the mast cells which is a source of various chemical substances mediating allergy. Reishi is able to control and give excellent relief in various allergic disorders (skin, nasal, bronchial allergies). Many allergic disorders are caused by chemicals and toxins present in our food and atmosphere. Children are very sensitive to these substances and these allergens cause various allergic diseases in children.
Reishi being an effective anti-allergic agent is able to give relief in these conditions and detoxifies these chemicals which are responsible for allergic disorders.
Reishi has powerful anti-cancer effects. This was first discovered in Japan in 1977. The polysaccharide fraction has the highest anticancer effect.
Reishi has been approved as a supplement drug to be used in cancer treatment in Japan. Reishi can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy in cancer treatment. It can help to reduce pain and prevent metastasis. Even in terminal cases of cancer, reishi can help relieve the pain and also give a sense of well being and improve quality of life.
In psoriasis where there is a rapid turnover of cells, Reishi can be very effective.
Many research papers are available in the literature which document the effect of Reishi in cancer treatment. In cancer treatment, Ganoderma (Reishi- RG/GL) must be given in very high doses.
Other important effects of Reishi are as follows:
1. Reishi reduces blood sugar levels.
Ganodelan A & B present in Reishi act as hypoglycemic agents. It increases the production of insulin by the beta cells of the pancreas. The ACE-Inhibiting effect causes insulin sensitizing effect and helps the available insulin to act better. This effect is very helpful in diabetic patients. Many of the vascular complications of diabetes can be prevented or postponed by consuming reishi.
2. Reishi reduces both cholesterol and triglycerides levels in the blood
3. Reishi has many powerful effects on the brain. It regularizes sleep function. Reishi stimulates various brain functions: memory, alertness and has a calming effect on the brain. This relieves stress, which is the fundamental cause for various diseases.
4. Reishi can improve Spiritual potency and has been called as “Spiritual herb”. This effect can be helpful in various stress induced/related illnesses and Psychosomatic disorders. Chinese Buddhist monks have consumed Ganoderma for improving the spirituality.
5. Reishi improves digestion function and regularizes bowel movements.
6. Reishi normalizes various hormonal levels and this helps in infertility.
Reishi is an excellent regulator of various body functions.
One of the major effect of Reishi is detoxification and helps liver and kidneys to eliminate toxins from our body. When toxins are removed, our body health is protected and disease is cured. We consume various kinds of toxins in our food, air and water. We are exposed to atmospheric pollutants and consume toxins like pesticides and artificial manures, and colouring agents in food. When these toxins accumulate in our body, they lead to disease.
Children are exposed to these toxins which have dangerous effects on their body and strikes them when they are young.
Reishi by detoxifying these harmful chemicals, protects children and adults from various diseases.
Reishi is a powerful adaptogen. Adaptogen is a substance which is non-toxic, non-specific and has overall normalizing effect on the body. Reishi is no. 1 adaptogen. Reishi normalizes various body functions and has no toxic effects. This adaptogen effect can be used to treat and prevent disorders/ diseases, especially in old age.
DXN produces and markets high quality ganoderma (Reishi Gano-RG; Ganocelium-GL)
GL is produced from the mycelium of ganoderma after 20 days of growth. GL contains 4 times concentration of polysaccharides and organic germanium which are important for children for development of brain and immune system. Hence Dr. Lim gives GL separately.
