The main components of reishi powder are Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide, Ganoderma lucidum acid, adenosine and more than 10 kinds of alkali, oleic acid, cellulose, amino acid, trace elements, etc. Its application is very wide, and it has medical effects on heart, lung, liver, spleen and kidney. Reishi powder is not only a medicinal herb, but also a superior food, which is calm, non-toxic and suitable for both young and old. Pregnant women and young children can take Reishi powder to regulate their immunity and prevent various diseases, avoiding the need for injections and medication. For the elderly, it has the effect of regulating blood pressure in both directions and preventing various cancers and tumors. For allergic people, often eat reishi powder can play a certain role in preventing allergies.
2. The role of reishi powder
Anti-tumor: Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide contained in reishi powder has a broad-spectrum tumor suppressing effect and is a good adjuvant drug for clinical treatment of tumors. Experiments have shown that Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide has a significant inhibitory effect on aflatoxin causing liver cancer. Experiments have shown that Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide can inhibit tumor growth at certain doses whether administered intraperitoneally or orally. Its anti-cancer mechanism of action is to antagonize tumor immunosuppression and effectively promote non-specific anti-tumor immune response in many ways, and also has a certain promotion effect on the normal body's immune response. Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide also has the function of activating macrophages, enhancing the phagocytosis and bactericidal function of macrophages, increasing the size of macrophages and pseudopods. Experiments have also shown that its anti-cancer mechanism works mainly by inhibiting DNA synthesis in cancer cells.
Hypoglycemia: Different parts and extracts of Ganoderma lucidum have different degrees of effect on blood sugar. The mechanism of its hypoglycemic effect is due to its ability to increase the concentration of plasma insulin and accelerate the metabolism of glucose. It not only increases the utilization of sugar by surrounding tissues, but also improves the utilization of glucose by the liver by strengthening the activity of various key enzymes involved in hepatic glucose metabolism.
Liver protection: Pharmacological tests have shown that reishi powder has a protective effect on the liver pathology model in mice caused by D-aminogalactose. Ganoderma lucidum can lower blood lipids, reduce liver index, reduce liver steatosis, counteract liver damage caused by carbon tetrachloride and prevent its steatosis.
Anti-aging: The immunomodulatory effects of Ganoderma lucidum and its polysaccharide components, the ability to promote the anabolism of nucleic acids and proteins, antioxidant free radical activity and the ability to prolong the division of metabolized cells in vitro suggest an anti-aging mechanism of action of Ganoderma lucidum. In addition, Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides can promote the DNA polymerase activity of deoxyribonucleic acid in T lymphocytes in mixed cultures of mice and promote cellular DNA synthesis, which is also one of its anti-aging mechanisms.
