What is Magic Reishi Mushroom and Benefits?

What is Reishi or Ling Zhi Mushroom?

Red Reishi (Ganoderma Lucidum), commonly known as Ling Zhi in Chinese, is a herbal mushroom known to have miraculous health benefits.


Reishi has been used in Japan and China for over 2,000 years. It is the oldest mushroom known to have been used as medicine. Since ancient times, the mushroom was reserved for emperors and royalties and has been revered as nature’s rarest and most beneficial herb. In the Superior category of Shen Nung Ben Cao Jing, the oldest and most famous medical text on Oriental herbal medicine. Red reishi is ranked higher than ginseng, because of its following qualities:

  • 1. It is non-toxic and can be taken daily without producing any side effects.
  • 2. When it is taken regularly, it can restore the body to its natural state, enabling all organs to function normally.
  • 3. It regulates and fine tunes the immune system.

Composition

Red Reishi is composed of complex carbohydrates called water-soluble polysaccharides, triterpeniods, proteins and amino acids. Researchers have identified that water-soluble polysaccharides are the most active element found in Red Reishi that have anti-tumour, immune modulating and blood pressure lowering effects.

Another major active ingredient found in Red Reishi are triterpenes , called ganoderic acids . Preliminary studies indicated that ganoderic acids help alleviate common allergies by inhibiting histamine release, improve oxygen utilization and improve liver functions. Triterpenes are bitter in taste and the l

Wide Range of Medicinal Applications

Reishi indeed sounds like a cure-all. An immunostimulant, it is helpful for people with AIDS, leaky gut syndrome, Epstein-Barr, chronic bronchitis, and other infectious viruses. It is used as an aid to sleep; as a diuretic; as a laxative; and to lower cholesterol. Reishi mushrooms are antioxidants and liver protectants..

Our most loving God once again comes to the aid of those who are suffering from cancer, hiv, asthma, high cholesterol, low blood pressure, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, paralysis, psoriasis, rheumatism, ulcers, tiredness, hepatitis A, B, and C, insomnia, sterility, mumps, and epilepsy by supplying us with reishi mushroom (Japanese) or ling zhi (Chinese) mushroom to cure us of our diseases.

Asthma


Asthma is a disease in which inflammation of the airways causes airflow into and out of the lungs to be restricted. The muscles of the bronchial tree become tight and the lining of the air passages swells, reducing airflow and producing the characteristic wheezing sound. This is known as an asthma attack, which can occur as an allergic reaction to an allergen or other substance (acute asthma), or as a part of a complex disease cycle which may include reaction to stress or exercise (chronic asthma).

This study shows that Ganoderma spore extract selectively kills metastatic inflammatory breast cancer cells, and with no effect on non-cancerous breast epithelial cells. The extract inhibited genes involved with cancer cell growth, invasion and metastasis.evel of the triterpene content contained in a product can be determined by the bitterness. It is also used to help treat anxiety, high blood pressure, hepatitis, bronchitis, insomnia, and asthma.

Besides cancer,reishi can help and treat another of America's top killers: cardiovascular disease. The protection reishi offers against heart disease and stroke is truly remarkable because it helps prevent so many different risk factors, due to its high content of heart-saving substances like sterols, ganoderic acids, coumarin, mannitol and polysaccharides. Experts believe that the ganoderic acids in particular lower triglyceride levels, remove excess cholesterol from the blood, lower blood pressure, reduce platelet stickiness and even help correct arrhythmia. In fact, for 54 people with hypertension unresponsive to medication, taking reishi extract three times a day for four weeks was enough to significantly lower blood pressure, according to a study reported by Burton Goldberg in "Heart Disease." Just imagine how the incidence of cardiovascular disease could be reduced if using reishi really caught on in the Western hemisphere.

Triterpenes in reishi mushrooms are shown to lower blood pressure and improve circulation

I heard discussions before about the health properties of mushrooms but never really got further than that. Thanks for this information. If I know someone who is interested in these two mushrooms, I will pass along the information.

Thanks for passing the information. Reishi and ling zhi are the same mushroom but called "reishi" in Japanese and "ling zhi" in Chinese.

This is probably the panacea for all illnesses. Some say that GOD creates the cure first before introducing the remedy. How true.

I suppose Ling Zhi can only be grown in certain climes.

This info is very valuable indeed. Thanks for publishing this hub.

Thank you for your positive comments.  I had great joy in publishing this hub for I want people to learn about the wonderful benefits reishi or ling zhi mushrooms bring to the afflicted people with the mentioned diseases.  They are not that expensive.  There is reishi tea and many Chinese goodies made with ling zhi.  I also buy the Royal Peking Jelly rather than other kinds of jelly.

I just spoke to my brother and he told me that the Duke of Edinburgh also drinks the Peking (Beijing) Royal Jelly (honey).

God bless for believing that God supplies the remedy first before the cure.  Our God is a loving and caring God.  No other god lays claim to such goodness.

Thanks for this great and informative hub!

Fortunately, I live in NYC and can pick up roducts in Chinatown. Or at Chinese markets.

When I was in Beijing I had the pleasure of visiting a real herbal museum and  also 10 of us visited 4 different doctors - we were amazed at how exact the diagnosis were on all our ailments - with doctors just looking at our tongue and 3 fingers on the wrist pulse. Of course we bought herbal prescriptions which all worked.

I'm sold - we were meant to live with and respect nature. Of course we don't so we have have chronic ailments, shortened lives and painful existences.

Thanks again for taking the time to write such a thourough hub. I will email it to friends and myself.

Thanks for your great and kind comments. I am so delighted that you will mail it to your friends and yourself. I do appreciate your comments. Many people do not make comments whether good or bad.

I do take Peking Royal Jelly (honey) with Ling Zhi, but not many Chinese shops sell this combination. I must confess that I take it after reading about Queen Elizabeth !! only using this brand. She has the best doctors and Queen Victoria also used it. That is good enough for me.

It is wonderful to hear that 10 of you and your friends visited Chinese doctors in Beijing and reporting of their correct diagnoses of diseases.

God bless.

Hi, i recently suffer with anxiety,i need to know wether ling zhi is it work for curing anxiety and body weakness


einron profile image

einron 7 years ago from Toronto, Ontario, CANADA Author

I really do not know whether ling zhi cures anxiety or body weakness. You must have enough sleep, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and do not drink too much coffee (stimulant).

Tell your problems to God, doctor or someone you trust. Hope that this helps you.

I do not know of anyone using this in conjunction with chemo.

However, I know people using LEMON GRASS DRINKS in conjunction with chemo. Lemon Grass article has quotes from Israel.

Lemon Grass is quite cheap at supermarkets, and costs under $2.00 for 6 stalks. Use about 2" long of lemon grass and cut into small pieces. Pour boiling water over it and after a while when it is cooler, drink it.

Both my brothers have prostate cancer and colorectal cancer are now in remission and both are using LEMON GRASS DRINKS every day.

It is difficult to find Peking Lingchih Royal Jelly. My brother brought it for me some time ago. He went to the Chinese medical shops along Dundas Street and Spadina Avenue. He would not remember the shop. The other area is on Gerrard Street East and Broadview Avenue.

Maybe you can ask the shop keeper to order for you and leave a telephone number behind for him to call you. I think this is the best way. Hope you will be able to get some.

Red Reishi is a very studied fungus with a wide variety of accepted uses. I am in disagrement with your statements of curative properties. It is no doubt highly valuble in normalizing body function pertaining to dealing with illness. It has been shown effective in aiding treatment of MANY things but not curing it all together. I found it somewhat misleading from my Herbalist point of view.

Is it only this particular type of mushroom that is good for you. I ask because I have heard that mushrooms we buy at the store are not good for you. Those are some scary looking mushrooms. Amazing what these mushrooms can do. Thanks for the great information.


einron profile image

einron 5 years ago from Toronto, Ontario, CANADA Author

No! But until I research and write, I will not comment on the other types of mushroom.

When I was young, some one brought in some mushrooms (very white and delicious) and asked whether we would try to eat them for they were unidentified and wild. Being adventurous, I volunteered to eat them. My younger sister and a relative also volunteered. I ate the most and later had stomachache and vomitted. I was hospitalized three days. Later, my sister and the relative were also admitted to hospital.

Some mushrooms are poisonous and we found out too late. It is dangerous to eat mushrooms which are wild. I had learnt a hard lesson

God Provides Herbs For Food: Fresh LEMON GRASS Drinks help cure Cancer

http://hubpages.com/health/godprovidesherblemongra...

http://einron.hubpages.com/hub/profile/einron

You can look at about 10 articles on Food and Cancer, etc. I have 10 or more articles on God's Food, Herb, etc.

Both of my two brothers take the drink. They were suffering from prostate cancer and colorectal cancer.

One took radiation and the other had an operation and survived about 5 years.

I am sure you can get lemon grass in Nigeria. Cut a piece of lemon grass (about 2 inches long) and pour hot water over it.

You should also pray to God and tell Him why you should get better.

God Bless.
