Chinese medicine believes that reishi powder has an effect on a man by increasing of his life energy. Today there are no known examples that someone actually became immortal, but there is a whole lot of scientific research on its ability to heal and help people. It differs from other mushrooms mainly by containing a special ingredient – ganoderic acid that gives it a bitter taste and unque therapeutic properties (it works as an anti-inflammatory and inhibits the formation of tumors).

In addition, reishi powder also contains ergosterol, mannitol, coumarin, alkaloids, lactones, unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, adenosine, proteins and water-soluble polysaccharides, called PS-G. Those water-soluble polysaccharides strengthen the immune system and act as prevention against tumors. Moreover, they are believed to hold up the process of cell death and have an antioxidant function.

– strengthens the immune system

Reishi and treatment of major diseases

Reishi powder is used for a very long time in the Middle East to treat cancer. Its anti-cancer effect is the result of polysaccharides contained. In the experiment, where they developed cancer cells in the laboratory and then add them to an extract of these polysaccharides, all the cancer cells were dead. Reishi powder became used as a supplement to support cancer treatment in many places in Japan. The fact is that it has a very good impact on our immune system.
