Red Reishi mushrooms are adaptogens, used for centuries to support the immune system’s ability to fight stress and fatigue.
Modern science has identified nearly 400 bioactive compounds in Red Reishi mushrooms. It appears that there are several molecules, including triterpenoids, polysaccharides and peptidoglycans, that may be responsible for its health effects. Reishi is well-known for its support of the immune system and as an infection fighter. It shows great potential as a natural alternative to prescription drugs.
For many, stress – and its debilitating symptoms – seems inescapable and toxic medications are unthinkable. As we look to nature for help, Red Reishi beams with promise as it appears to support the adrenal glands to mitigate against stress hormones.
Neurasthenia is a medical term for chronic fatigue and its symptoms. A Chinese research study proved that a polysaccharide extract of Reishi was “significantly superior to placebo with respect to the clinical improvement of symptoms in neurasthenia.”
Red Reishi mushrooms are considered natural antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal substances thanks to their active compounds. For example, in addition to relieving allergies, their triterpenes guard against microbial, viral and fungal infections.
Red Reishi mushrooms work as adaptogens that can help the body cope with stress more efficiently and help regulate hormone levels. Studies show they may protect and positively impact the endocrine system helping to regulate hormone production.
