Reishi mushroom extract is used as a tonic and a sedative. It is extracted from reishi mushroom, which is primarily composed of complex carbohydrates called water-soluble polysaccharides, triterpeniods, proteins and amino acids. Polysaccharide is a major active ingredient. It has a strong antihistamine action that can help control allergies. It can also lower cholesterol, prevent blood clots, help prevent the growth of tumors, and increase the body's ability to fight unwanted invaders. Another major active ingredient found in reishi mushroom extract is triterpene, also called ganoderic acid. Preliminary studies indicated that ganoderic acids help alleviate common allergies by inhibiting histamine release, improve oxygen utilization and improve liver functions. Regular consumption of reishi mushroom extract can enhance our body's immune system and improve blood circulation, thus improving health conditions.
