Immune System Booster
Reishi extract is able to reinforce the immune system. In studies on patients with advanced tumors, after thirty days prescription of reishi extract, and researchers discovered an increase in T lymphocytes and decreased CD8 counts. Meanwhile, lesser side effects from chemotherapy and radiation, and smoother post operation recovery were reported. Reishi extract increases antioxidant levels because it is rich in Organic Germanium, Polysaccharides and Triterpenes, which have been shown to strengthen the immune system.
Studies have shown that reishi extract boosts immunity and fight against cancer cells. Some studies also showed reishi extract may prevent metastasis. And reishi targets many different stages of cancer development, including angiogenesis as well as metastasis and the migration of cancer cells. It is also believed that reishi induces apoptosis of cancer cells.
Lower Blood Pressure
Studies have shown that reishi extract improves blood flow and lowers oxygen consumption in the heart, because of a chain of acids belonging to triterpenes, a group of natural compounds reducing high blood pressure, lowering cholesterol, and preventing blood clots. Meanwhile it was also found that reishi extract prevented plaque build-up on artery walls.
Blood Sugar Regulation
Reishi extract has a significant blood sugar regulating effect. its polysaccharides (including Ganoderans A, B, and C) keep balancing blood sugar, which helps to avoid many problems caused by diabetes, such as hypertension, high blood pressure, ulcers, strokes, and impotence.
Studies have shown that reishi extract has direct anti-viral effects with herpes simplex virus 1 and herpes simplex virus 2, which have been shown to be strongest in protecting against the contraction of herpes and cold sores, and in speeding relief from symptoms. These benefits seem to derive from a compound called GLP, which inhibits viral replication by interfering with the early events of viral absorption and entry into target cells.
Clinical studies confirm that reishi extract can dilate the coronary artery, increase blood flow, and improve circulation in cardiac muscle capillaries, thus increasing the supply of oxygen and energy to cardiac muscle. Reishi extract reduces blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels and prevents the formation of arterial atheromatous patches. Reishi extract also reduces hardened cholesterol in the arteries and soften the blood vessel wall to avoid further damage. Reishi prevents strokes by improving blood circulation and inhibiting the aggregation of platelets.
Radiation Damage Protection
Studies found that reishi extract strengthens the effects of radiation therapy while acting directly against the tumor. Investigation also reveals reishi extract boosts the immune system, to better manage radiation therapy and chemotherapy treatment. Reishi extract is also found to ease symptoms of chemotherapy, such as nausea, vomiting, headaches, fever, infection, weight loss and hair loss.
