Also called the Miracle Mushroom, Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) has become an alternative remedy of preference for both doctors and herbalists as well as for those who are interested in managing their personal health. Its ability to prevent and treat cancer and other problems related to the immune system and overall health have led to its recommendation not only for therapeutic purposes but also as a preventive agent.
Originally from japan, Reishi (Ganoderma Lucidum) contains hundreds of active micro elements that act on the immune system making it an exceptional medicinal mushroom. Besides protein, vitamins and amino acids, polysaccharides, triterpens, fatty acids and alkaloids, Reishi is rich in various forms of beta-glucans (1,3D and 1,6D) and germanium (GE-132) known for their anticancer and immune modulating effects.
Ling-Zhi variant known as Red Reishi, has proven to be the most rich in complex polysaccharides that give a strong anticancer therapeutic effect. Polysaccharides are organic substances such as beta-glucans which has been shown in clinical trials to activate anti-cancer active defensive components of the immune system.

Besides the super-dosage of polysaccharides with therapeutic power, by removing wood fiber and indigestible polysaccharide fractions via extraction through a complex manufacturing process, Reishi 5000 is 100% Bio-active, with maximum bioavailability and therapeutic efficiency.
Japan has included this mushroom in the list of treatments for cancer since in clinical studies it proved that it can:
- inhibit angiogenesis
- inhibit metastasis
- induce apoptosis (cancer cell death).
But the benefits of Reishi do not stop at cancer.
It has positive effects on blood circulation, serum cholesterol and glucose, on the aging process of the internal organs. Acts as a protector to liver cells, helps balance hormones, contributes to nerve cell regeneration has detoxifying effetcs etc. Therefore, in Japan Reishi is considered as a wonder of the natural treatments.
Why is it good to associate Reishi with vitamin C?
Polysaccharides are composed of a large number of molecular components and this creates problems of assimilation in the body. Vitamin C has the ability to convert polysaccharides in oligo-glucan which is easily absorbed by the body. Oligo-glucan activates macrophages which trigger the immune system. Macrophages devour any foreign organisms from the body.
