Some of the side-effects of chemotherapy are hair loss, appetite loss, fatigue and lethargy. Ganoderma has been shown to reduce these side-effects. Reishi is said to be one of the well-respected mushrooms used in todays modern medicine.
There are a plethora of other disorders which are known to respond to treatment with this seemingly magical mushroom, these can include lung and liver disorders, HIV/AIDS, allergies and even heart problems. Even conditions such as age spots and acne may benefit from the use of this magical mushroom. This mushroom is also thought to help reverse some of the signs of ageing, including skin that may have been damaged due to excessive exposure to the sun.
This mushroom is composed mostly of carbohydrates that are quite complex in their structure, these are known as triterpeniods, water soluble polysaccharides , amino acids and proteins. Scientists have discovered that because of this they tend to have postive effects such as lowering blood pressure, immune modulating and even anti tumor properties.
Triterpenes are another substance found in Ganoderma Lucidum, these are also known as ganoderic acids. Studies have shown that these ganoderic acids act much like an anti-histamine and therefore are great for allergies. Triterpenes are quite bitter to the taste and the level of triterpenes can often be gauged simply by measuring how bitter the finished product is. The more bitter it is, the more triterpenes the product contains.
As we have already mentioned, a regular course of this medicinal mushroom will help improve your bodies immune system in addition to aiding the bodies blood circulation which in turn means better overall health for you.
As with any new treatment or even exercise regimen, we highly recommend that you discuss this with your doctor or GP before deciding to take on a course of Ganoderma.
Once you have discussed the option of using it with your doctor, you can then try and source some either at your local health shop or at some of the various web sites found on the Internet.
