Ganoderma Lucidum, better known as Reishi mushroom, can be helpful in combating many different health conditions and can be of particular support for men’s health. Known as “Ling Zhi” in China, this translates to “divine plant of longevity” but is also regarded as “the mushroom of kings” and the “herb of immortality”.
A well-known advantage of consuming Reishi for men and women alike is its beneficial effect on the immune system. When it is taken regularly, Reishi can restore the body to a natural state of balance, enabling all organs to function normally.While some prescription medicines lose their effectiveness after time, this does not happen with Reishi. It is non-toxic and can be taken daily without producing any side effects or change in tolerance or efficacy.
Reishi helps the body defend against illness. This alone makes this mushroom a very valuable health tonic. An adaptogenic herb, Reishi improves the functioning of the body in multiple ways, including reducing stress, and either boosting energy or helping one sleep, depending on what the body needs.
Taking Reishi mushroom is believed to help prevent bad cholesterol from building up on the walls of the arteries and may reduce blood pressure, reducing the risk of issues related to heart health. Beneficial to the respiratory system, reishi helps individuals suffering from coughs and colds.
Ganoderma is possibly best known for its ability to help liver function and is used by patients undergoing intense health treatments. The cap and stem of the reishi mushroom contains compounds such as beta-glucan polysaccharides and triterpenes which stimulate the immune system.
In addition to the benefits available to both genders, reishi may be of particular use to men and prostate health. The prostate is the gland found at the base of the bladder. Prostate cancer is the third most common cause of cancer-related death in men. A slow-growing cancer, it is often treatable if caught early. Traditional treatment usually involves surgery to remove the prostate followed by hormone therapy. There is anecdotal evidence that Reishi may help support prostate health.
