long have you been eating Ganoderma Luciudm (also called Lingzhi or Reishi mushroom)? Six months, five years or ten years?
The ancients consumed Ganoderma lucidum for a long time in order to prolong life. What effects will people today experience if taking Ganoderma lucidum for a long time? This article tells you what happens to those who eat Ganoderma lucidum every day?
Blood pressure drops.
The protection of Ganoderma lucidum on the cardiovascular system has been recorded since ancient times. In the Compendium of Materia Medica, it is written that Ganoderma lucidum removes pathogenic factors congealing in chest and benefits the heart qi, which means that Ganoderma lucidum can enter the heart vessel and promote the circulation of qi and blood.
As early as the 1990s, clinical research conducted by the Department of Pathobiology of Shanghai Medical University found that:
Essential hypertension patients who could not reduce blood pressure with western medicine for one month, since taking an extra 330 mg of Ganoderma lucidum extract preparation, their blood pressure began to drop after 2 weeks and dropped below the standard of no need for medication after 3 months. The great vessels or capillaries, blood quality and blood flow of the patients were all improved.

Why does Ganoderma lucidum regulate blood pressure?
On the one hand, Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides can protect the endothelial cells of the blood vessel wall, so that the endothelial cells can perform normal functions and relax the blood vessels. On the other hand, blood pressure regulation is related to the inhibition of the “angiotensin-converting enzyme” by Ganoderma lucidum triterpenes. This enzyme secreted by the kidneys constricts blood vessels, causing blood pressure to rise. However, Ganoderma lucidum can regulate its activity.
In addition, the combination of Ganoderma lucidum and Western medicine (antihypertensive drugs) will have better, faster and more stable effects, and even make Western medicine more effective!
Sleep quality improves.
Stress, troubles, and poor sleep have become the norm for many modern people. The ancient book records that Ganoderma lucidum ”soothes the nerves”, which seems to be a special prescription for busy people today.
Ms. Xu, 62, has been sleeping for at most 2 hours a day since she was in her 40s. Usually, the average person can sleep for 6 hours with only one sleeping pill, but taking five or six pills a day had no effect on her.
After coming into contact with Ganoderma lucidum, she did not expect that 4 capsules of Ganoderma lucidum extract a day could guarantee her continuous sleep for six or seven hours, and many of her ailments have also been fixed. On the day of the interview, Ms. Xu had been eating Ganoderma lucidum for two and a half months. At this time, she was able to eat, drink and sleep normally. She said from the bottom of her heart, “This is the most comfortable time I have been in 20 years.”

Although the effect of Ganoderma lucidum in improving insomnia is not as strong as that of sleeping pills or sedatives, Ganoderma lucidum can restore good circulation among the three systems of “neuro-endocrine-immunity”.
When sleep improves, other symptoms will also decrease or disappear, which is the difference between Ganoderma lucidum and Western medicine. In addition, Ganoderma lucidum has many functions such as stabilizing emotions, reducing pain, and reducing depression, which can help you and I have a good sleep every day.
Physical strength improves.
The improvement of the physique is the result of comprehensive coordination in many aspects.
Professor Du Jian of Fujian University of Traditional Chinese Medicine mentioned in the Ganoderma Primordial Qi Theory that Ganoderma lucidum can nourish the five internal organs and replenish the Qi of the five internal organs. No matter which organ is weak, Ganoderma lucidum has a regulating effect on it. Among the five internal organs, the effect of Ganoderma lucidum on “invigorating the liver qi” is particularly prominent.
Mr. You, who was interviewed by me in 2009, suffered from hepatitis B when he was in the army. At the age of 50, he was again diagnosed with fatty liver. He was just starting to control his diet and weight at the time.
Until seven or eight years later, he started to take care of his body with Ganoderma lucidum extract preparations and had regular liver function test every 2 years. At the next check-up, his fatty liver had healed without medication. A few years later, his ”hepatitis B surface antigen” also changed from positive to negative, which means that the hepatitis B virus in his body was too rare to be detected.

The liver is not only a detoxification factory but also a nutrient processing factory in the human body. At least 500 kinds of chemical reactions in the human body are carried out here. When the liver is not healthy, the body will be tired. If the liver is healthy, the whole person’s physical strength and mental outlook will take on a new look.
Ganoderma lucidum can protect liver cells and improve hepatitis symptoms through antioxidant effects, promote liver cell regeneration by inhibiting liver fibrosis, and enhance liver detoxification ability by reducing fat accumulation. Ganoderma lucidum takes care of the liver through multiple regulation and joint efforts.
Ganoderma lucidum also has amazing effects on intestinal digestion, brain neuroprotection, immune regulation and anti-aging.
What about people who often take Ganoderma lucidum? At least they are all on the way to improve their health.
