Excerpt from here
For over 2000 years Reishi mushrooms (Ganoderma lucidum) have been recognized by Chinese medical professionals as a valuable remedy. As the ‘Medicine of Kings’, Reishi is widely used for different purposes. It is used for symptomatic relief of arthritis and of menopausal anxiety. It is also used in treating allergic asthma, hypertension, hypothyroidism, bronchitis, insomnia, general anxiety and stress, and cardiovascular problems. Reishi also is often the main ingredient in herbal formulas for immune dysfunction syndromes, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Reishi is prescribed in China for a number of psychiatric and neurological afflictions, including diseases involving the muscles, anorexia, and debility following lengthy illnesses. In an eight-month study of Alzheimer’s disease in Japan, patients taking a Reishi mycelium product demonstrated significant improvement.
Recently, Russian scientists have taken an interest in Reishi. They found that in addition to the cardiovascular benefits mentioned above, Reishi showed a significant preventive and therapeutic action against plaque build-up (‘Plaque’ is a fatty compound which is comprised of a combination of oxidized cholesterol, calcium, and degenerated white blood cells [‘foam cells’]. It is deposited on the walls of arteries which restricts blood flow by narrowing the passage within arteries resulting in arteriosclerosis).
In 1990, researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio found that Reishi could be effectively used in treating stiff necks, stiff shoulders, conjunctivitis (inflammation of the fine membrane lining the eye and eyelids), bronchitis, rheumatism, and improving ‘competence’ of the immune system without any significant side-effects.”
