1. Sources and Habitat
Língzhi (traditional Chinese: 灵芝; Japanese: reishi; Korean: yeongji, ) is the
name for one form of the mushroom Ganoderma lucidum, and its close relative
Ganoderma tsugae, which grows in the northern Eastern Hemlock forests. These
two species of bracket fungus have a worldwide distribution in both tropical
and temperate geographical regions, including North and South America, Africa,
Europe, and Asia, growing as a parasite or saprotroph on a wide variety of
trees. Ganoderma lucidum enjoys special veneration in Asia, where it has
been used as a medicinal mushroom in traditional Chinese medicine as a herbal
medicine for more than 4,000 years, making it one of the oldest mushrooms known
to have been used in medicine.

3. Indications and Uses
Reishi may possess some anti-tumor, immunomodulatory and immunotherapeutic
activities, supported by some studies on polysaccharides, terpenes, and other
bioactive compounds isolated from fruiting bodies and mycelia of this fungus.
A number of laboratory studies have shown anti-neoplastic effect of fungal
extracts or isolated compounds against some types of cancer.
The mechanisms by which G. lucidum may affect cancer are unknown and may target
different areas of cancer development: inhibition of angiogenesis (formation of
arterial vessels within the tumour) mediated by cytokines, cytoxicity,
inhibiting migration of the cancer cells and metastasis, and inducing and
enhancing apoptosis of tumor cells.
Variation between preparations and potential negative side effects cannot be
ruled out. G. lucidum' extracts may be adaptogenic, anti-allergenic and anti-
hypertensive due to the presence of triterpenes. Apart from these properties,
Reishi has been found to be anti-inflammatory, antiviral, anti-parasitic, anti-
fungal, antidiabetic, anti-hypotensive, and protective of the liver.[citation
needed] It has also been found to inhibit platelet aggregation, and to lower
blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar.
Reishi may act as a blood pressure stabilizer, antioxidant, analgesic, a kidney
and nerve tonic. It has been used in bronchitis prevention and in
cardiovascular treatment, and in the treatment of high triglycerides, high
blood pressure, hepatitis, allergies, chemotherapy support, HIV support, and
fatigue and altitude sickness.
Some peer-reviewed studies indicate that ganoderic acid has some protective
effects against liver injury by viruses and other toxic agents in mice,
suggesting a potential benefit of this compound in the treatment of liver
diseases in humans.
Several species of Ganoderma have been used in traditional Asian medicines for
thousands of years. Collectively, the Ganoderma are being investigated for a
variety of potential therapeutic benefits.
