Rei-Shi Mushrooms 270 mg - 100 Caps
These specialized mushroom strains are produced from live mycelial and fruiting stages of fungi grown on organic brown rice under controlled, hygienic, chemical-free and yeast-free conditions. The cultures are then harvested at the peak of their vigor.

Hundreds of scientific studies have confirmed that Reishi (Ganoderma, its pharmaceutical name) can be used to build physical resistance to disease and to treat a wide range of ailments, including liver disease, hepatitus, autoimmune disorders, allergies, depression, and even cancer. The primary constituents responsible for Reishi's medicinal actions are polysaccharides and triterpenes. More than a hundred different triterpene molecules have been identified in Reishi.

Immune Booster and Regulator
Reishi has a double-direction activity. It significantly improves the functioning of the immune system whether the immune system is deficient or excessive. It is thus called an immune modulator. Reishi contains unique, rare polysaccharides which have been proven to increase the RNA and DNA in the bone marrow, where the body makes B cells. Studies show that it promotes both B cells and T cells, specialized cells that are a critical part of the immune system. Therefore, Reishi not only stimulates the immune system, it regulates it. That is why this Reishi is beneficial for both the chronically ill and the healthy.

Liver Health
Promising research shows that Reishi helps regenerate the liver. In one study, mice were given a lethal dose of the pain-killer, Indomethacin. In the control group, which received no Reishi, 90% of the mice died. In the second group which received Reishi, 100% lived. The powerful compounds found in Wild Reishi help to accelerate the clearance of drugs and chemicals that the liver stores, thus relieving free radical activity and promoting cell regeneration. Reishi also helps to produce bile and fatty acid synthesis more efficiently, which promotes faster detoxification of these chemicals from the body. Thus making Reishi the ultimate Phase I and Phase II liver detoxification tonic.

Reishi and Cancer
Reishi is an approved drug for some kinds of cancer in Japan and has been used safely and effectively, often in conjunction with other drugs or radiation. It has been demonstrated that Reishi can help reduce the side effects of many kinds of chemotherapy and radiation treatment and simultaneously contribute to the rebuilding of the immune system-an essential part of the recovery from cancer.

Reishi is also an effective lower of blood pressure.  Recent research has demonstrated that reishi has the ability to turn on a longevity gene in our bodies.
