The Reishi mushroom, also known by its formal name of Ganoderma lucidum and its Chinese name Ling zhi, has attained an unparalleled reputation in the Orient as the ultimate herbal substance. For over three thousand years it has been the most sought-after product of nature by mountain sages and by the emperors and empresses of all Eastern nations. In the first Chinese herbal text (Shennong's Pharmacopoeia) written about 2400 years ago, Ganoderma lucidum was classified as a "superior herb" which is defined as one that "serves to maintain life, promote radiant health and long life" because of its normalizing action, and to cause no side effects, even when used continuously. " That ancient book said that "continuous consumption of Ganoderma lucidum makes your body light and young, lengthens your life and turns you into one like the immortal who never dies." Thus Ganoderma lucidum was traditionally called "the mushroom of immortality."
The Ganoderma lucidum Mushroom grows wild only upon old trees and roots of certain types of trees in remote mountain forests of China, Japan and Korea. Only in the last fifteen years have we seen the cultivation of Ganoderma lucidum, and thus the commercial availability of this amazing health product. Ganoderma lucidum has been the object of intensive scientific studies to discern its many health functions from a modern perspective. Traditionally, Ganoderma lucidum is believed to be a tonic to all of the body's energies. It was revered as a major tonic to each of the three Treasures, Jing, Qi and Shen. As a Jing (Essence) tonic, Ganoderma lucidum is believed to have major life-lengthening effects when consumed over a long period of time. It is believed to build primal power and to replenish energy spent handling stressful situations. As a Qi tonic, Ganoderma lucidum is used to build energy, although it is slightly sedative in the short run. It is most famous as an herb used to build the immune system.
Many studies done in Japan have shown Ganoderma lucidum to have a powerful effect on the body's overall resistance to disease. While medical research and individual case studies have shown red Ganoderma lucidum to be effective in treating numerous conditions and diseases, it is important to emphasize again that the greatest proven benefit of regular red Reishi consumption is the enhancement of your body’s overall health.
Through purification, improved blood flow, immune modulation, detoxification, rejuvenation, and revitalization, red Reishi can enhance the body's ability to combat a myriad of diseases, particularly those that occur more frequently with advanced age.
Obesity can affect one's self confidence and have a negative impact on one's self-image. In addition, it can lead to diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Studies have found that regular consumption of red Reishi helps the body cleanse itself of accumulated toxins and excess lipids (fat).
In addition to regulating the body’s way of handling fat, red Reishi products can also improve the condition of the skin. The anti-aging properties of red Reishi may be related to improved blood flow and increased delivery of nutrients to the skin. It may also help in the reparation process of sun-damaged skin. People who have taken Ganoderma lucidum regularly have noticed a decrease in pimples (acne) and other blemishes. Control acne breakouts/Enchance skin complexion/Minimize fine lines and lighten age spots.
Regular consumption of red Reishi also has a calming and stress-reducing effect on the body, and appears to improve sleep patterns, without the sedation commonly seen with medications. It should be clear to the reader that these benefits combined, will improve one's physical appearance. Regular red Reishi intake combined with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, can effectively facilitate your body’s return to a normal, healthy state.
On the Road to Better Health with Red Reishi If we do not actively maintain a healthy lifestyle, our bodies will deteriorate, and we will gradually become accustomed to this state of declining health. We may lose track of weight that we have gained and not notice the decline in our natural well being until a significant problem arises. It is thought that over time, an inactive body accumulates toxins, and this contributes to the deterioration of overall wellness.
Consuming a red Reishi product on a regular basis is thought to clear some of these toxins. In the beginning, a user may experience a “resetting” period, where his or her body will exhibit signs of "cleansing". The excretion of accumulated poisons and an increase in various metabolic activities are normal signs of recovery and they indicate that the regulatory properties of red Reishi are taking effect. Common symptoms of "recovery" may include dizziness, sore bones, skin irritation, change in bowel movements, including diarrhea and constipation, and pimple-like blemishes appearing on various parts of the body. The time frame for these symptoms may vary from person to person, but they generally last only a few days - until the body adjusts to a higher state of wellness and becomes accustomed to the regular intake of red Reishi. Daily consumption of large amounts of water is recommended. It is important to point out again that these physiological reactions are only temporary, unlike side effects from medications.

The term "adaptogen" connotes an agent that purportedly "increases resistance to physical, chemical, and biological stress and builds up general vitality, including the physical and mental capacity for daily life. As a result of its long history of use, Panax Ginseng has been studied extensively by modern scientists and it has been found to possess hundreds of compounds, including ginsenosides, phenolics, and saccharides that contribute to its biological activity.
The main active components of Panax ginseng are ginsenosides, which have been shown to have a variety of beneficial effects, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Results of clinical research studies demonstrate that Panax ginseng may improve psychological function, immune function, and conditions associated with diabetes.

Why Do We Need Ganoderma?
Many ailments are caused by the imbalance of body functions due to the accumulation of toxins in the body. Ganoderma helps the body remove the build-up of toxins and allows the body's natural immune system to strengthen itself.
In China, it has over 2,000 years, the mushroom known as Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) has been called “God’s Herb”. Also recognized by its Chinese name, Ling Zhi, Reishi’s reputation for being effective in treating a wide range of ailments moved Chinese Emperors throughout the various Dynasties to order servants to search for wild Ganoderma lucidum mushrooms found atop distant mountains, believing that the consumption of Ganoderma lucidum would grant them eternal youth and enhanced health. Because of the mushroom’s remote habitat and the scarcity of high-quality specimens, the use of Ganoderma lucidum for medicinal purposes was reserved primarily for royalty and wealthy individuals. It was not until the late 20th century, that this once-rare plant, through diligent cultivation by the Japanese, was it made widely available to the general public.
The original textbook of Oriental medical science, “Herbal Pharmacopoeia”, was compiled by the founding father of Chinese medicine, Shen Nong (Han Dynasty, 206 BC ~ 8 AD) . In it, the legendary herbalist-emperor documented 365 species of plants and classified them into three categories: superior, average and fair. These classifications were based on two main criteria: its benefits, based on consumption on a continual basis, and side effects. For those plants graded as “superior”, the power to harmonize the functions of the body, mind and spirit and the range of ailments they could treat were greater and broader than those of weaker specimens. In addition, they had to have little or no longterm side effects. Among the specimens in this class, G. lucidum was ranked the highest in this classic medical text, even superior to the well known ginseng. In the “Compendium of Materia Medica” (Ben Cao Gang Mu), which contains hundreds of natural medicines the Chinese have used for thousands of years, celebrated physician and naturalist Li Shi Zhen (1518~1593) described the benefits of G. lucidum : "It benefits the life energy, or "qi" of the heart, repairing the chest area and benefiting those with a knotted and tight chest. Taken over a long period of time, agility of the body will not cease, and the years are lengthened to those of the Immortal Fairies."
Over the ages, Ganoderma lucidum has become ingrained in Oriental art and culture because of its prestigious status in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Since the first Chinese dynasty, paintings, embroideries, buildings, and sculptures of the gods and immortals have depicted G. lucidum as a symbol of divinity, longevity and good fortune. Depictions of G. lucidum are displayed throughout the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace in Beijing as a testimony to its value, and the mushroom’s distinctive shape was a favorite ornamental design feature used by royalty and the wealthy. Even the traditional scepter of the emperors of China was a stylized Reishi, called a "Ru Yi".
The History of Panax Ginseng
Panax ginseng is believed to have been discovered in the Manchurian Mountains greater than 5,000 years ago. It was most likely first consumed as a source of food. However, archived documents reveal that ginseng was used and revered by kings, emperors, and wealthy households in the Far East for medicinal purposes in pre-historic times. The first written reference of Panax ginseng as a medicinal herb can be found in Shen Nong’s Materia Medica (the Ancient Chinese Canon of Medicine) dated from the 1st century, CE: “Ginseng is a tonic to the five viscera, quieting the animal spirits, stabilizing the soul, preventing fear, expelling the vicious energies, brightening the eye…and prolonging life.” Traditional Chinese herbal remedies stress the restorative properties of ginseng root—its ability to re-energize your chi or life force. In northern China, it is a common practice for the elderly to take low daily doses of ginseng throughout the long, cold months of winter in order to boost their physical endurance and longevity.
The origins of the genus name Panax can be traced back to the Greek root words pan akos meaning “all cure”—an aptly named herb for all its purported health benefits. Acting as an adaptogen, its primary functions are as an anti-inflammatory agent, an antioxidant, immunity booster, and reproductive health tonic. More reported effects include increased muscle mass, physical vigor, and mental performance (memory, focus, and concentration). Clinical studies have shown that Korean red ginseng can enhance male sexual function and vitality. Combined with gingko, red ginseng can help treat erectile dysfunction as well as low sperm count. Ginseng has also demonstrated positive psychological effects in menopausal women by lessening feelings of fatigue and depression.
The part of the ginseng plant used for medicinal purpose is the root. Unlike other common roots found in gardens and grocery stores, ginseng root has an unusual physical appearance. The thicker knob-like top that branches into leg-like appendages gives the rough impression of a human-like figure. According to ancient herbalist beliefs, any plant that bears a resemblance to a certain body part is meant to be good for that body part. Hence, it follows that if ginseng root is shaped like a whole human person, then it must be a unique and powerful herb capable of treating the entire body.
As a slow-growing perennial plant that was historically over-hunted, it is now uncommon to find ginseng in the wild. Ginseng root generally takes four to six years to mature before it is harvested because the quality and potency of ginseng is believed to increase with age. China’s growing demand for ginseng root spurred Korea’s experimentation and cultivation of the world’s first farmed ginseng root in the sixteenth century. Today, both China and Korea have flourishing ginseng farming industries and are major exporters of ginseng products.
Nevertheless, Asian ginseng is not the only type of ginseng available as health supplements. American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolios) was first discovered in southern Canada by a French explorer and thought to be a rare herb to “invigorate the virile powers.” The Iroquois, Menomonee, Cherokee and Creek tribes all used ginseng for its natural curing powers. Native American folklore reveals that ginseng root was an early medicinal herb used to treat nosebleeds and infertility. It is believed that early American settlers discovered ginseng in the mid 1700’s in New England. Ginseng cultivation methods eventually spread West to Wisconsin, which has now become a leading ginseng producer. Americans were first skeptical of American ginseng, but it has since gained popularity in recent years as an aphrodisiac. America exports an estimated $100 million worth of ginseng per year, mainly to Asia where it is highly valued.
Asian herbalists regard American ginseng as having “cooling” powers and that type of ginseng is mainly used to treat fevers as well as digestive and respiratory ailments. In contrast, Asian ginseng such Korean red (steamed) ginseng and Chinese white (peeled) ginseng are considered to be a “hot” herbs used to re-energize the body and restore overall strength and well-being.
