Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum; Red Ganoderma; Ling Zhi Hong) Powder
The reishi mushroom is classified botanically as a polypore, a group of hard, woody, bracket-like mushrooms that decompose wood. Because of this hard and woody nature, reishi is not eaten, but cut into pieces and made into a thick, boiled tea, a decoction. This traditional water decoction involves boiling reishi at low temperatures for 2-6 hours. The water soluble compounds are left in the decoction and the mushroom pieces are discarded. A water decoction will contain most of the polysaccharides and some, but not all of the triterpenes. An alcoholic tincture, that is, an alcohol decoction, or, more properly, an aged alcohol soak, will contain both the water-soluble and most of the water insoluble elements.
Considered among the most powerful natural healing herbs in Asia, Red Reishi was very rare and expensive to obtain until recently. Reishi is rich in active organic compounds such as polysaccharides, amino acids, proteins, triterpenes, ascorbic acid, sterols, lipids, alkaloids, a glucose, a courmarine glycoside, volatile oil, riboflavin and more. These compounds are being studied for their positive effects on the immune system, including anti-tumor activity. Asian cultures have also used Reishi, rendered in jade, as a talisman worn around the neck. Sometimes, whole dried Reishi are placed in the home to ward off evil. William B.

Prospective and retrospectively collected data on men and women suggest that use of non steroidal antiinflammatory drugs is associated with reduced risk of Alzheimers disease. This research heightens the importance of the ancient reports where Ganoderma lucidum was praised for its effect of increasing memory and preventing forgetfulness in old age reported in Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing vol. 1 as early as 456-536 AD. Research on mice using orally or topically administered Ganoderma lucidum provides evidence that Ganoderma lucidum has anti-inflammatory activity.

Used as a decoction, extract, tincture, food additive and supplement. This is the most widely used variety of the most famous Chinese medicine, Lingzhi, Ganoderma lucidum. The black or violet varnish polypore Ganoderma lucidum, var sinense, also called Ganoderma sinense, or violet Lingzhi (Zhao, Xu, and Zhang) is very closely related, but this is Red Ganoderma. Most research on the cultivation, pharmacology, and clinical use of Lingzhi has focused on Red (Ganoderma lucidum) and Violet (Ganoderma lucidum, var sinense) Lingzhi, which are considered two varieties of the same mushroom.
