Am still very much here despite a long absence from blogging about reishi! What’s been keeping me busy is well…work(ok…that’s a lame excuse), and yes, this one other hobby that I have at the moment which is making friggin’ great ice cream.
We recently got our hands on a new nifty kitchen toy, the Whytner Ice Cream Maker, and it’s been churning out great homemade ice cream every week since.

Reishi Mushroom Offers Hope For Living Healthier Longer
|Article from http://www.napsnet.com/articles/68974.html
Today, there are over 5,000 studies documenting the health benefits of the six primary types of reishi-red, black, blue, white, yellow and purple. Traditionally, black and red reishi have been credited with the most significant health-enhancing effects.
Reishi’s immune-enhancing properties are probably the most notable.
Reishi is used to fight immunosenescence-the loss of immune function that comes with age. Aging adults produce fewer white blood cells-the immune cells responsible for fighting against bacteria, viruses and abnormal cells.
According to Michael Smith, M.D., senior health science specialist with Life Extension in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and host of Healthy Talk radio on WWNN-AM, reishi mushroom extract can increase production of white blood cells from your bone marrow.
“Not only that, reishi helps to activate dendritic cells,” says Dr. Smith. “These cells present bacterial and viral antigens like to antibody-producing cells called B cells. As a result, you’re able to effectively fight infections before getting too sick. And if you do happen to get sick, you’ll feel better faster with more antibodies on board.”
Reishi mushrooms are also believed to activate intrinsic antioxidants, helping to reduce oxidative stress, one of the leading theories of aging. Highly reactive oxygen compounds, generated from environmental toxins and normal cellular metabolism, bind to healthy cells and tissues, causing damage.
Naturally occurring compounds in reishi can boost intrinsic antioxidants, sequestering the damaging oxygen compounds and preserving healthy cell and tissue function. In animal models, reishi was shown to increase the intrinsic antioxidant activity of plasma glutathione by 34 to 42 percent, liver catalase by 19 to 30 percent and liver glutathione by 9 percent.
Boosting liver antioxidants, such as catalase and peroxidase, is considered an extremely important strategy for living longer, given the toxic environment. The EPA estimates that over 70,000 industrial chemicals are used in the U.S.
“And if that’s not enough to make you sick,” says Dr. Smith, “government scientists estimate the average American has over 700 chemicals in his or her blood- stream at any given time.”
Living Healthier Longer
A weak immune system and high levels of oxidative stress are counterproductive to living healthier longer. For many, reishi mushroom extract offers real hope for reversing these two aging processes.
