The facts about this powerful medicinal

Types of mushrooms

Currently there are over 10,000 known types of mushrooms.

That may seem like a large number, but mycologists suspect that this is only a fraction of what’s out there!

We can put these various species in one of 4 categories: saprotrophic, mycorrhizal, parasitic, and endophytic.  These categories describe how the the organism feeds itself.  Medicinal mushrooms can help boost energy levels, strengthen the immune system, stabilize blood sugar, and reduce cholesterol.

There are also mushroom supplements for cancer that can be taken along with traditional treatments. However, as with any supplement you should consult your doctor as they may cause an allergic reaction or interfere with a medication you are taking.

Health Benefits

Much is said about the health benefits of reishi mushrooms. Studies are ongoing into its immune system enhancing and possible cancer fighting effects. Why all the good news about reishi? They contain multiple active ingredients including: polysaccharides and triterpenes.

Polysaccharides are complex carbohydrates made up of chains of sugars. These sugars stabilize blood pressure and blood sugar, and have an effect on free radicals.

Triterpenes are steroid like molecules that inhibit histamine release and have anti-inflammatory properties. The triterpenes in reishi are known as ganoderic acids.

Lingzhi mushrooms are often taken for the below conditions:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Anxiety

Lingzhi's Top Three Benefits

lingzhi improves immune-system

Immune System

anti aging benefit from Lingzhi


Lingzhi slows down ageing by eliminating free radicals and increasing our cells’ oxygen intake when the toxins jamming up the cells have been eliminated – you look youthful for years.

Lingzhi is non toxic


Lingzhi is perfectly safe and non-toxic as even little babies, elderly people and sick people can take it. Its quality is indisputable – there are plenty of evidence to support the claims on its abilities.

Healthy human blood is a liquid with great fluidity. When the fluidity is poor, the heart must increase the strength of its contractions in order to force the blood around the whole body, resulting in a higher pressure.

Low blood fluidity arises from an increase in “blood viscosity”, with the primary factor being higher level of “blood lipid” or “blood fat”; the chief components being cholesterol and triglyceride.

Our liver produces most of the circulating cholesterols and triglycerides in order to allow essential biochemical activities, such as energy provision and cell metabolism.

Unfortunately, due to our diet (increased meat consumption) and lack of exercise, there is an excess amount of cholesterol and triglycerides in our body, resulting in the development of Hyperlipidemia.

Blood pressure is the pressure exerted by circulating blood on the walls of our blood vessels. There is pressure when the heart pumps blood throughout the whole body. It is influenced mainly by:

1) your heart

2) your emotional stress

3) your blood viscosity

4) your elasticity of the blood vessels.

Lingzhi ganoderma triterpenoids could prevent the liver from producing an excess of cholesterol. Based on an analysis of ganoderma, these effective ganoderma triterpenoids are found to be rich in Yung Kien Ganoderma (belonging to a strain of G. tsugae).

Thrombosis: formation of blood clots

When there is a high level of fat in the blood, excess lipids will adhere to the surface of the arterial wall, accumulate and eventually result in arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). As the blood cannot run through these narrowed arteries smoothly, the heart will need to exert a higher pressure to push blood through, causing a rise in blood pressure.

If a piece of lipid sticks at a narrow point of the blood vessels, it will cause thromboembolism. Thrombosis at the heart is called Cardiovascular Thrombosis.

Thrombosis at the brain is called Cerebrovascular Thrombosis.

Another possible cause of arteriosclerosis is the aggregation of platelets. When injuries occur in the blood vessels, platelets gather at the site of injury and begin the repair process. The walls of the blood vessels then become thicker and narrower, thus blood flow become slower, causing high blood pressure.
