The drop in temperature during this time of the year brings on the rise of colds, flus, and other infections.
Reishi, scientifically known as Ganoderma lucidum, is a mushroom that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries to treat various ailments and to strengthen the immune system.
In this article, you can read about how this mushroom can help to boost immune health, and learn about the other benefits it has on the body.
Reishi contains bioactive compounds, such as beta-glucans and triterpenes, which have been shown to have immunomodulatory properties. They stimulate immune cells, such as macrophages and natural killer (NK) cells, thus strengthening the body’s first line of defence against pathogens.
In addition, the antioxidants found in Reishi help fight free radical damage in the body and protect against oxidative stress.
Chronic inflammation can weaken the immune system. Reishi acts as a natural anti-inflammatory agent, helping to reduce inflammation and maintain a healthy balance in the body that supports optimal immune function.
This mushroom helps the body adapt to and resist stress, and contains compounds that can help regulate sleep, promoting deeper and more beneficial rest.
This active ingredient acts in the same way as other natural extracts such as propolis, and vitamins such as vitamin D, modulating the immune response and reducing the symptoms of allergies, colds, or infections such as coughing, sneezing, itching, stinging or irritation. Together with echinacea, it provides anti-inflammatory action.
