10 Health Benefits of Spirulina

1./ Spirulina Is Extremely High in Many Nutrients

Spirulina is an organism that grows in both fresh and salt water.

It is a type of cyanobacteria, which is a family of single-celled microbes that are often referred to as blue-green algae. Just like plants, cyanobacteria can produce energy from sunlight via a process called photosynthesis.

Spirulina was consumed by the ancient Aztecs but became popular again when NASA proposed that it could be grown in space for use by astronauts.

A standard daily dose of spirulina is 1–3 grams, but doses of up to 10 grams per day have been used effectively.

This tiny alga is packed with nutrients. A single tablespoon (7 grams) of dried spirulina powder contains (2Trusted Source):

Protein: 4 grams

Vitamin B1 (thiamine): 11% of the RDA

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin): 15% of the RDA

Vitamin B3 (niacin): 4% of the RDA

Copper: 21% of the RDA

Iron: 11% of the RDA

It also contains decent amounts of magnesium, potassium and manganese and small amounts of almost every other nutrient that you need.

In addition, the same amount holds only 20 calories and 1.7 grams of digestible carbs.

Gram for gram, spirulina may be the single most nutritious food on the planet.

A tablespoon (7 grams) of spirulina provides a small amount of fat — around 1 gram — including both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in an approximately 1.5–1.0 ratio.

The quality of the protein in spirulina is considered excellent — comparable to eggs. It gives all the essential amino acids that you need.

It is often claimed that spirulina contains vitamin B12, but this is false. It has pseudovitamin B12, which has not been shown to be effective in humans (3Trusted Source, 4Trusted Source).

SUMMARY

Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that grows in both salt and fresh water. It may be one of the most nutrient-dense foods on earth.

2./Powerful Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Oxidative damage can harm your DNA and cells.

This damage can drive chronic inflammation, which contributes to cancer and other diseases.

Spirulina is a fantastic source of antioxidants, which can protect against oxidative damage.

Its main active component is called phycocyanin. This antioxidant substance also gives spirulina its unique blue-green color.

Phycocyanin can fight free radicals and inhibit production of inflammatory signaling molecules, providing impressive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects (6Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source, 8Trusted Source).

SUMMARY

Phycocyanin is the main active compound in spirulina. It has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

3./ Can Lower “Bad” LDL and Triglyceride Levels

Heart disease is the world’s leading cause of death.

Many risk factors are linked to an increased risk of heart disease.

As it turns out, spirulina positively impacts many of these factors. For example, it can lower total cholesterol, “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, while raising “good” HDL cholesterol.

In a study in 25 people with type 2 diabetes, 2 grams of spirulina per day significantly improved these markers (9Trusted Source).

Another study in people with high cholesterol determined that 1 gram of spirulina per day lowered triglycerides by 16.3% and “bad” LDL by 10.1% (10Trusted Source).

Several other studies have found favorable effects — though with higher doses of 4.5–8 grams per day (11Trusted Source, 12Trusted Source).

SUMMARY

Studies indicate that spirulina can lower triglycerides and “bad” LDL cholesterol and may simultaneously raise “good” HDL cholesterol.

4./Protects “Bad” LDL Cholesterol From Oxidation

Fatty structures in your body are susceptible to oxidative damage.

This is known as lipid peroxidation, a key driver of many serious diseases (13Trusted Source, 14Trusted Source).

For example, one of the key steps in the development of heart disease is the oxidation of “bad” LDL cholesterol (15Trusted Source).

Interestingly, the antioxidants in spirulina appear to be particularly effective at reducing lipid peroxidation in both humans and animals (16Trusted Source, 17Trusted Source).

In a study in 37 people with type 2 diabetes, 8 grams of spirulina per day significantly reduced markers of oxidative damage. It also increased levels of antioxidant enzymes in the blood (18Trusted Source).

SUMMARY

Fatty structures in your body can become oxidized, driving the progression of many diseases. The antioxidants in spirulina can help prevent this.

5./May Have Anti-Cancer Properties

Some evidence suggests that spirulina has anti-cancer properties.

Research in animals indicates that it can reduce cancer occurrence and tumor size (19Trusted Source, 20Trusted Source).

Spirulina’s effects on oral cancer — or cancer of the mouth — have been particularly well studied.

One study examined 87 people from India with precancerous lesions — called oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) — in the mouth.

Among those who took 1 gram of spirulina per day for one year, 45% saw their lesions disappear — compared to only 7% in the control group (21Trusted Source).

When these people stopped taking spirulina, almost half of them redeveloped lesions in the following year.

In another study of 40 individuals with OSMF lesions, 1 gram of spirulina per day led to greater improvement in OSMF symptoms than the drug Pentoxyfilline (22Trusted Source).

SUMMARY

Spirulina may have anti-cancer properties and appears especially effective against a type of precancerous lesion of the mouth called OSMF.

6./May Reduce Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a main driver of many serious diseases, including heart attacks, strokes and chronic kidney disease.

While 1 gram of spirulina is ineffective, a dose of 4.5 grams per day has been shown to reduce blood pressure in individuals with normal levels (10Trusted Source, 11Trusted Source).

This reduction is thought to be driven by an increased production of nitric oxide, a signaling molecule that helps your blood vessels relax and dilate (23Trusted Source).

SUMMARY

A higher dose of spirulina may lead to lower blood pressure levels, a major risk factor for many diseases.

7./ Improves Symptoms of Allergic Rhinitis

Allergic rhinitis is characterized by inflammation in your nasal passageways.

It is triggered by environmental allergens, such as pollen, animal hair or even wheat dust.

Spirulina is a popular alternative treatment for symptoms of allergic rhinitis, and there is evidence that it can be effective (24Trusted Source).

In one study in 127 people with allergic rhinitis, 2 grams per day dramatically reduced symptoms like nasal discharge, sneezing, nasal congestion and itching (25Trusted Source).

SUMMARY

Spirulina supplements are very effective against allergic rhinitis, reducing various symptoms.

8./May Be Effective Against Anemia

There are many different forms of anemia.

The most common one is characterized by a reduction in hemoglobin or red blood cells in your blood.

Anemia is fairly common in older adults, leading to prolonged feelings of weakness and fatigue (26Trusted Source).

In a study in 40 older people with a history of anemia, spirulina supplements increased the hemoglobin content of red blood cells and improved immune function (27Trusted Source).

Keep in mind that this is just one study. More research is needed before any recommendations can be made.

SUMMARY

One study suggests that spirulina can reduce anemia in older adults, though more research is needed.

9./May Improve Muscle Strength and Endurance

Exercise-induced oxidative damage is a major contributor to muscle fatigue.

Certain plant foods have antioxidant properties that can help athletes and physically active individuals minimize this damage.

Spirulina appears beneficial, as some studies pointed to improved muscle strength and endurance.

In two studies, spirulina enhanced endurance, significantly increasing the time it took for people to become fatigued (28Trusted Source, 29Trusted Source).

SUMMARY

Spirulina may provide multiple exercise benefits, including enhanced endurance and increased muscle strength.

10./May Aid Blood Sugar Control

Animal studies link spirulina to significantly lower blood sugar levels.

In some cases, it has outperformed popular diabetes drugs, including Metformin (30Trusted Source, 31Trusted Source, 32Trusted Source).

There is also some evidence that spirulina can be effective in humans.

In a two-month study in 25 people with type 2 diabetes, 2 grams of spirulina per day led to an impressive reduction in blood sugar levels (9Trusted Source).

HbA1c, a marker for long-term blood sugar levels, decreased from 9% to 8%, which is substantial. Studies estimate that a 1% reduction in this marker can lower the risk of diabetes-related death by 21% (33Trusted Source).

However, this study was small and short in duration. More studies are necessary.

 

SUMMARY

Some evidence suggests that spirulina may benefit people with type 2 diabetes, significantly reducing fasting blood sugar levels.

The Bottom Line

Spirulina is a type of cyanobacteria — often referred to as blue-green algae — that is incredibly healthy.

It may improve your levels of blood lipids, suppress oxidation, reduce blood pressure and lower blood sugar.

While more research is needed before any strong claims can be made, spirulina may be one of the few superfoods worthy of the title.

If you want to give this supplement a try, it’s widely available in stores and online.

DXN is the first MLM company in Malaysia to produce Spirulina from the cultivation process to finished goods. DXN Spirulina is naturally cultivated using selected best species. It is cultivated in a clean pond and no pesticides or herbicides are applied. It is available in tablet and capsule forms to suit your needs.

 

 

 

Cordyceps Sinensis

Cordyceps Sinensis

Chinese Cordyceps (cordyceps sinensis) can be ascribed both to flora and to fauna. It dwells in China on the high-mountain Tsinuzan, 3500-4200 m above the sea level. Cordyceps is a two-unified organism – a plant and an insect. The two forms of Cordyceps existence were described in an ancient Chinese book “A new compilation of pharmacology” (1757). But the history of Cordyceps application in China as means of strengthening health and preventive measure against diseases has over 1200 years.

During winter Cordyceps lives under ground in the form of a cocoon which has germs-hairs-future organs of vegetable existence. With the coming of spring the hairs shoot out and Cordyceps starts its existence completely like a plant. In summer ascospore shoots itself out of the filial cyst. There grows a spore (or ascogoniade) which settles on a butterfly larva and starts its existence as a parasite. The infected larva buries itself in earth. In winter the spore turns into a bacterium and ruins little by little the internal organs of the larva but the horn capsule remains unaffected. Underground the Cordyceps larva winters not less than 2 years. It bears long starvation, permanent oxygen deficiency. It feeds on high mountain plant rhizomes including Plygonum, Astragalus and Ophiopogon. Its body is rich in specific biological components.

Thanks to its diverse structure Cordyceps in its literal meaning carries out cell “repairs”, being a preventive and rehabilitation factor of the human body. It is tasty, easily assimilated, has no side effects and has no contra-indications.

Rehabilitation and preventive properties of Cordyceps

– restores kidney function, has a marked effect at kidney insufficiency, chronical kidney diseases, uremia and urino-genital system on the whole;

– is recommended under defects and diseases of the hemogenic system, e.g. at low hematochrome and lack of thrombocytes and leucocytes including radio-therapy and chemo-therapy with cancer patients;

– at cardiovascular system diseases: arrhythmia, heart diseases, atherosclerosis, thrombosis, high level of triglycerides;

– at insomnia, nervous exhaustion and chronical tiredness, at stresses;

– for prevention of premature aging;

– on acute and chronic hepatitis and tumors of various origin;

– is necessary for removal toxins and a number of radio-active substances thanks to its ability of stimulating kidney and liver function;

– for prevention of diseases of respiratory system: bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma, tuberculosis;

– at diseases of brain, sclerosis of brain vessels, non malignant tumors of the brain;

– at hypertension, hypotension, some variety of anemia (an the background of low activity of hemogenic system);

– at metabolic diseases including diabetes and pancreatitis;

– at decrease of the body resistance to diseases: frequent diseases of the respiratory system and of the mouth cavity;

– at various fermental deficiency including allergy;

– exercises influence on endocrine glands and improves metabolism.

Cordyceps is used to strengthen the body and mind at a fundamental level. It is said to be able to increase the “primary motive force for life activities.” Cordyceps is one of the primary herbal substances used in tonic herbalism as an anti-aging agent and for the purposes of rejuvenation.

Cordyceps replenishes Yin and Yang Jing, restoring the deep energy expended as a result of excessive exertion, adapting to stress or from aging. It is also a very powerful lung tonic, increasing respiratory capacity and efficiency. And, like other tonic mushrooms, Cordyceps is one of the most potent immune modulating agents known to mankind.

WHO CAN USE THIS FORMULA?

Because it contains both Yin and Yang it can be used by anyone safely and over a long period of time. A powerful and proven athlete’s herb. Cordyceps is highly regarded in China as a tonic for those who are recovering from an illness or an operation, or after giving birth. In these cases, the Cordyceps helps the patient recover their physical power, to improve their appetite, and to protect the body from infection.

Typical Usage

2 or 3 tablets, 2 or 3 times per day

Note:

Cordyceps is very widely used for the purposes of strengthening the primal Kidney functions, which include sexual functions, brain power, structural integrity and healing ability. It is a potent Yin Jing tonic, but it is also a very powerful Yang tonic.

As a sexual tonic, Cordyceps is considered to be one of the best. It is not as quick acting as the best of the Yang tonics like Deer Antler, Epimedium and Sea Dragon, but it has a profound long range strengthening capacity. It is commonly used for impotence, sexual neurasthenia, frigidity and infertility.

Consistent use of Cordyceps helps to strengthen the physical structure, and specifically benefits the lower back region, the knees and ankles. It is used for backache due to injury, fatigue, stress or simple aging.

Cordyceps is also a major Lung tonic. It can be used to strengthen respiratory power in those who require extra energy in order to perform physical work (e.g. labor, sports or exercise) or it can be used by those who suffer from deficiency of Lung power. It is especially beneficial to those who suffer chronic Lung weakness with cough, wheezing or shortness of breath.

Cordyceps has always been used to fortify the defensive system of the body and large amounts of recent data indicate that Cordyceps is a very potent immune system potentiator. Researchers in Japan and China have isolated a number of polysaccharides in Cordyceps which strengthen the immune system, and at least one, CO-1, has been shown to have strong anti-tumor activity. Maintaining the immune system is one of the mechanisms that can slow down aging and prevent both degenerative and acquired diseases.

Other studies have shown that Cordyceps can have a benefit in the vascular system as well. Cordyceps improves the function of the micro-circulation and improves efficiency at the capillary level. Cordyceps has been shown to help regulate blood pressure and to strengthen heart muscle.Cordyceps is one of the absolute superstars of the Chinese tonic herbal system. It is an extremely effective and powerful life enhancing agent, ranking right up there with Ginseng, Ganoderma and Deer Antler. Because it is rare, potent and highly treasured, like Deer Antler, it is very expensive. It is the main ingredient in a number of expensive elixirs and tonic formulations.

Many studies now indicate that Cordyceps can help the body resist a wide range of pathogenic bacteria, fungi and viruses. Cordyceps is used in Asia to help treat fungus and yeast infections, and intensive research is being conducted at dozens of institutions in China and Japan relating to the potential of Cordyceps to treat cancer and HIV infection.

Cordyceps is considered in Asia to be a robust and virtually miraculous athlete’s tonic. Cordyceps has attained even greater fame in the last few years since the quintessentially successful track coach, Ma Jia Jun, created a secret formula, based on Cordyceps and Tortoise Shell, which he gave to his China National Women’s track team. Subsequent to their taking this formula, which was made with Cordyceps as the dominant ingredient, the women of this team came to dominate the world track scene for more than two years. The members of the team broke many world records, most of which they still hold.

During their reign, they were accused of taking steroids or other illegal drugs, since their rise to dominance was so quick. But all drug testing proved negative. No trace of any illegal substances has been detected in their blood.

None of Ma’s track women were ever found to be consuming anything other than his secret Chinese tonic herbal formula. Due to a number of reasons, mostly associated with personality conflicts between Ma and his track stars (he refused to let them grow their hair, to keep much of their prize money or to keep the luxury cars they won as prizes on the world track circuit, for example), virtually all the women refused to stay in Ma’s camp and they all went independent.

No longer having access to his secret Cordyceps recipe, all of the stars have lost their dominating athlete prowess. In 1995, a year after leaving Ma, only one of the former superstars qualified for the National Team which represented China at the World Championships.Ma’srecipe is still secret (though we know it), although the whole world knows of its existence. We only know that the two dominant ingredients are Cordyceps and Tortoise Shell, a major Yin Jing tonic.

Cordyceps is highly regarded in China as a tonic for those who are recovering from an illness or an operation, or after giving birth. In these cases, the Cordyceps helps the patient recover their physical power, to improve their appetite, and to protect the body from infection. When blended with other tonics such as Ginseng, Ganoderma, Lycium or Astragalus, Cordyceps’ power is just increased as the synergy of the various herbs results in an even more powerful tonic.

PRODUCTION

In the last several years, it has become possible to grow a number of fungi by “fermentation” technology. The fungus is literally grown in large tanks, and in just a matter of days a large quantity can be produced. The technology has now become highly advanced and is making previously rare herbs like Cordyceps and Ganoderma much more accessible. Many studies indicate that the chemical nature of this biotechnology Cordyceps is almost identical to that of the wild variety and pharmacological and clinical studies seem to confirm this.The new biotechnological approach to growing Cordyceps possesses two truly great advantages.

The greatest advantage of the new technology is that the herbal substance, in this case Cordyceps, can be highly controlled by scientific means during its growth and “standardized” so that every batch is virtually identical—and in a sense, “perfect.” This is very important in pharmaceutical terms because without standardization, it is difficult or impossible to develop drug-type standards for substances like Cordyceps. Once an herb can be standardized, all kinds of studies can be conducted that will be accepted by the scientific community, including our FDA. Fermentation technology makes this substance available to anybody who wants it, and this is great news for the world.

Until now, few people have even heard of Cordyceps because of its rarity. In the next decade, as a result of the new fermentation technology, Cordyceps will become known throughout the world.

There is one more advantage, at least by some people’s standard, to the new fermentation Cordyceps. The fungus is grown without the use of animal nutrients and the result is a 100% pure “vegetarian” health product.

Cordyceps is another quality product of DXN International.

 

Is the fruiting body or mycelium better for reishi mushroom extracts?

Is the fruiting body or mycelium better for reishi mushroom extracts?

The reishi mushroom has an ancient history of use in China, for over 2000 years, and is indicated for longevity, cancer treatment, autoimmune diseases, anxiety, insomnia, and cardiovascular health, amongst other uses (Dudhgaonkar et al., 2009). It is accepted that it is the triterpenes in reishi which are responsible for its anti-inflammatory activity, while its polysaccharides stimulate the immune system. However, there is controversy surrounding whether the fruiting body (above ground part) or mycelium (root like structure) is better for medicinal purposes. Many companies are selling only mycelium grown on grain (rice), which is cheaper, but opposed to tradition.

Traditionally, it was the fruiting body of reishi that was used as a medicine (Jong and Birmingham, 1992) and linked with longevity. So, the question is, how much does this matter?

Despite their different locations, both the mycelium and fruiting body contain similar medicinal compounds, such as the polysaccharides and triterpenes (Jong and Birmingham, 1992). However, there are more specific dissimilarities between these molecules between the two parts of the fungus. For example, gandoderic acids (triterpenes) A, B, and H have been detected only in the fruiting body, whereas, gandoderic acids R, S, and T were found in the mycelium. To extract the triterpenes efficiently alcohol is required.

This is important, as traditionally just a hot water extraction has been used when TCM doctors ask for a decoction to be made. However, many of the polysaccharides are in fact hot water soluble (Sone et al., 1985) and so hot water can be used to extract them. Therefore, a dual hot water and alcohol extraction of reishi is preferred. Both polysaccharides from the fruiting body and mycelium have been shown to be active against tumours in vivo model studies (Sone et al., 1985).

Another point made in the review article is that a bitter taste has long been associated with the medicinal properties of reishi, and it is the triterpenes which taste bitter (Jong and Birmingham, 1992). Therefore, when testing different extracts of reishi, a bitter taste is a good sign. The fruiting body is supposed to taste particularly bitter. If anti-inflammatory activity is desired (from triterpenes), therefore it probably is best to go for the fruiting body of reishi.

ganoderma-1829862_1920Reishi should not be considered a single medicine and its properties change depending on the life cycle, extraction location, extraction method, and growing environment of the mushroom. The fruiting body has been most studied scientifically, however the mycelium also receives a great deal of attention in studies as well. The two currently highest impact papers on reishi, one published in PNAS describing anti-tumour activity (Liao et al., 2013) and another in Nature Communications describing a therapeutic effect on obesity (Chang et al., 2015), both in mice, used a fruiting body extract or a mycelium body extract, respectively. Various human studies have used the fruiting body extracts, but also spore extracts (Tang et al., 2005; Zhao et al., 2012). It is not entirely clear whether the mycelium, fruiting body, or spore extracts are preferred, it may be that case they are better for different applications. Both the fruiting body and mycelium both contain potent immune stimulating polysaccharides that may be good for boosting immune defence.

Growth of mycelium for studies is often done in shaking flasks where substrates like glucose are added (Yang et al., 1998). They also may be grown in petri dishes in solid culture (Heleno et al., 2012). Another common method is growing mushrooms on brown rice as a substrate and it has been shown that reishi, grown on brown rice, has anti-inflammatory properties (Hasnat et al., 2015). Although rice grown mycelium has not been well studied at all compared to flask grown mycelium and the traditionally used fruiting bodies. It is hard to form a definitive opinion of what is better from scientific papers at the moment, more research is required, but it is good to remember the fruiting body of reishi is the most studied scientifically and is the part used in traditional Chinese medicine.

I currently prefer reishi that is grown in a way similar to how it grows in nature. This is on logs and organically. I also prefer a dual extract using water and alcohol of the fruiting body, not mycelium. This is in line with the traditional use of the mushroom, except a decoction avoids use of alcohol and therefore will be lacking in triterpenes compared with the more modern duel extract. It is possible to get a duel extracted tincture from herbalists or make your own which should be effective, although powdered capsules are reasonable as well. This article is just on the reishi mushroom, for different mushrooms what is written here may not apply.

About Ganoderma

About ganoderma

DXN Nigeria ganodermaA wonderful Herb

For thousands of years Ganoderma has been considered by the Chinese to be a high quality herbal medicine. The so-called ‘A-one Medicine’ is the best medicine which does not have any side effects, even after using it for a long time. It can improve one’s constitution, increase the body’s healing ability to help maintain a healthy body, and have a long life.

Successful cultivation

Wild Ganoderma is very rare and is difficult to collect. Even if someone finds it by chance, its effects are always lost because of aging. It becomes hard like leather. They may also be toxic. Since they are haphazardly collected, quality control is impossible.
In 1970, a technician of Kyoto University Foodstuff Scientific Research Institute. Mr. Yukio Naci, used, ‘Spore Separation Cultivation Method’ to successfully cultivate Ganoderma. This method was introduced in the Republic of China in 1975. Since the climate, and soil conditions are ideal, this technique has been widely adopted.

The magic effects of ganoderma:

Ganoderma has always been shrouded with a mysterious curtain for more than a thousand years. People only know ‘‘Ganodermas can keep one young and give one a long life if taken continuously”, but no one had ever scientifically investigated why it is so effective.
Under the attentive research done by both Chinese and foreign scholars in recent years, and the cooperative analysis and clinical experiments done by hospitals, colleges, and pharmaceutical manufacturers, its extensive efficacy has finally been discovered. It is a hemocatheresis, detoxicant, diuretic, liver protector, intestine regulator, cardiotonic, blood pressure adjustor, a cold tonic, antitussive and expectorant, a tranquilliser and anti-tumour drug.

Important components of Ganoderma:

  1. Organic Germanium (Ge): Can increase the oxygen absorbed by the blood up to 1.5 times: can promote metabolism: prevent tissue degeneration. According to the research of Dr Kazuhiko Asai, Ganoderma contains 800 – 2000 p.p.m. of germanium. This is 4-6 times more than ginseng.
  2. Polysaccharides: These can improve the body’s immune system, eliminate viruses. Japanese pharmaceutical companies have refined it to medical quality and it has been approved by the Koseisho Health Department in Japan for insurance medicine.
  3. Its bitter taste. It is under constant study by the Japanese medical and pharmaceutical fields. The efficacy is a result of the interrelation of germanium and polysaccharides. Some plants may contain one or the other, but Ganoderma is much more effective. The combination of components is different from other plants and all of the components must be preserved to insure efficiency.

Medical Principles of Ganoderma:

According to Dr Shigeru Yuji’s clinical experiments, the reason Ganoderma is effective is because of its basic functions.

  1. Lowers cholesterol in the blood and the amount of free fat.
  2. Reduces blood sugar level; to restore pancreas functions.
  3. Lowers blood lipids and stabilizes red cell membrane.
  4. Due to Ganoderma containing Adenosine, it can lower platelet angulation, and lyses thrombi and prevent thrombogenesis.
  5. Improves the function of the cortex of the adrenal glands to maintain endocrine balance.
  6. Elevates the natural healing ability of the body, allows the body to establish a strong immune system.
  7. Prevents tissue cell degeneration.
  8. MPrevents senility, maintaining a youthful constitution.
  9. Lowers the side effects of antihypertensive drugs.
  10. Prevents organ degeneration.
  11. Prevents allergy caused by antigens, because it inhibits the histamine releasing mast cell.
  12. Prevents and treats cancer and inhibits cancer cell metastasis.
    1. Normalizes to prevent tissue degeneration.
    2. Prevents sudden death of cancer patients caused by embolism.
    3. Inhibits thrombogenesis and lyses thrombi on the wall of surrounding tissues and removes blockade of cancer medication, increases these drugs’ effectiveness.
    4. Relieves pain caused by cancer.

Is it really true that Ganoderma is the savoir of modem diseases and is a ‘Universal Medicine’ for all diseases?

By Yukio Naoi of Kyoto University Foodstuff Scientific Institute

„Is Ganoderma really a universal medicine?”Let’s not talk about the diseases prevalent in history, but of modern diseases. In order to find the answer we have investigated its functions over and over again for thirteen years. Satisfactory results have been obtained.

The first issue is whether Ganoderma can be effective on all kinds of diseases. Our reply is ‘Yes’, because it is able to maintain the health of the modern person. For an unhealthy person, Ganoderma can affect the most feeble parts of his body. To a patient, it can root out the source of the sickness and allow recovery.

Ganoderma can change an imbalanced body to a healthy one. There is no difference among human races, ancient or modern people. Ganoderma has an effect on all. The same people all over the world will obtain the same results.

If the patient’s constitution conforms to Ganoderma, it is as if a patient drug is achieving its highest effects. In fact, we have not found any person who obtained negative effects or inefficient results.
