Description: Organic Red Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum)
The red reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is a mushroom that has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years for its adaptogen, immunostimulant, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Its Chinese name (lingzhi) is associated with longevity and immortality.
The red reishi is an adaptogen, a natural substance that helps the body to regain balance and strength when faced with changes brought about by stress.
The reishi mushroom is rich in nutrients and contains multiple chemical compounds (over 200 bioactive compounds have been identified), in particular, ergosterols, polysaccharides and triterpenes for their beneficial properties.
The reishi’s polysaccharides possess immunostimulant properties. Within the polysaccharides group we find the beta-glucans, compounds which reinforce the immune system. The reishi also contains triterpenes derived from lanostane, a group of molecules with antioxidant, antinflammatory and anti-allergen properties.
Our dry extract of organic reishi standardised at 30% polysaccharide content (15% betaglucans) and 1% triterpenes, thanks to its adaptogen and stimulant properties, helps the body naturally protect itself and maintain balance.
Organic Red Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum): Detailed information
The reishi or lingzhi (Ganoderma lucidum) is a mushroom which has been used for over 2000 years in Asia to treat various illnesses and as a tonic (1). Used to increase longevity and improve health, its Chinese name (Lingzhi) symbolises a combination of spiritual strength and immortality (2).
Our organic reishi contains polysaccharides and triterpenes. This mushroom is also very rich in proteins, nutrients and other bioactive compounds such as ergostols and nucleotides.
Within the polysaccharides we find the beta-glucans, molecules with immunomodulatory activity stimulating the phagocyte system, increasing the release of cytokines and acting on the various cells forming part of the immune system (3,4).
The reishi also contains triterpenes derived from lanotane, including ganoderic acids and ganodermic acids, a group full of compounds presenting various chemical structures and properties: antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, hypoglycaemic, neuroprotective etc.(5). One of the properties of triterpene is connected with the treatment of asthma and allergies owing to its anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting the release of histamine by the mast cells and re-establishing normal TH1 and TH2 cytokine balance (6).
Finally, the reishi also has cardioprotective properties: a recent study has shown the in vitro capacity of the proteins separated from the mycelia (vegetative body of the fungus) to inhibit the anti-angiotensin converting enzyme (7), an enzyme connected with arterial hypertension since it mediates in the conversion of angiotensin I into angiotensin II, a potent vasoconstrictor.
