Here are some of the benefits of Ganoderma Lucidum

In Oriental medicine, Ganoderma, as well as other mushrooms and plants in general, are widely used. So, what effect does Ganoderma lucidum have, and is it safe to eat Ganoderma?

Ganoderma lucidum is the scientific name for a fungus that grows in the tropics, particularly in Asia. Ganoderma lucidum is now widespread and widely used in Oriental medicine because some of the fungus' molecules can harm human health.

Ganoderma lucidum can be eaten raw, but it is more commonly prepared as a powder or as a fungus molecular extract. So, what are the effects of Ganoderma lucidum, and how do they affect health?

1. Ganoderma boosts the immune system

The first and most important effect of Ganoderma is that it can affect the genes in white blood cells, and some types of Ganoderma can even change inflammatory changes in white blood cells. The molecule in Ganoderma Lucidum boosts the activity of white blood cells, protecting the body from infectious agents and certain types of cancer in cancer patients. Furthermore, in colorectal cancer patients, Ganoderma lucidum may increase the number of white blood cells.

Ganoderma not only helps to strengthen and improve the immune system in patients but also in normal people, helping them have a healthier immune system. In general, the effect of Ganoderma on cancer patients is to improve the function of lymphocytes and fight infections and cancer. However, this benefit in healthy adults requires further study.

2. Ganoderma lucidum has cancer-fighting properties

Ganoderma lucidum is currently used by many patients because it has anti-cancer properties, killing cancer cells such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, and colon cancer. Many studies have been conducted to confirm Ganoderma's beneficial effects on cancer patients.

In addition to anti-cancer properties, Ganoderma increases the activity of white blood cells, aids the body in fighting cancer, and improves the patient's quality of life.

However, Ganoderma lucidum should only be used as an adjunct to traditional treatments, not as a replacement, and more high-quality research on Ganoderma lucidum's effects on human health is required. patient with cancer.

3. Ganoderma can combat fatigue and depression

Another well-known reishi mushroom benefit is its ability to alleviate fatigue and depression, as well as nervous breakdowns (headaches, dizziness), and to improve quality of life. Although Ganoderma lucidum may have many benefits for people suffering from the disease, healthy adults require more research and clarification.

Furthermore, some noteworthy reishi mushroom effects include:

Improve heart health: Reishi mushrooms have been shown to increase "good" HDL cholesterol and lower blood triglycerides, both of which are linked to an increased risk of heart disease. More research is needed, however, to confirm the benefit of reishi on heart health.

Control blood sugar: Molecules in Ganoderma have been found to reduce blood sugar, but it is clear that blood sugar levels are lower when fasting or after eating. In some cases, reishi was shown to have a worse effect on blood sugar control than a placebo. As a result, more research on the benefits of Ganoderma lucidum is required.

Increasing antioxidants: Many people believe that using Ganoderma lucidum increases the body's antioxidant status by adding antioxidants, which are molecules that help prevent cell damage. love. More research, however, is required to confirm this benefit.
