Our Ling Zhi (Reishi Mushrooms)
Available In Tinctures and 5:1 Full Extract Powders

Reishi had been recorded as having the most extensive and effective healing powers in all of Traditional Chinese Medicine!

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, reishi is indicated for adrenal fatigue, coronary heart disease, bronchial
asthma, insomnia, impotence, hay fever, dizziness, stomach ulcers, depression (by addressing the shen or spirit) and debility from long-term illness.

Today, reishi has various applications including lowering or raising blood pressure, stimulating liver actions, blood cleansing, and acting as an adaptogen becomming a super powerful immune booster and helping the body fight the effects of stress.

Our Ling Zhi mushrooms grow semi-wild on decaying logs and tree stumps in the clean coastal provinces of China and yes, we make sure they are always bigger than your hand!

They are so hard to cut with a knife that we have to slice them on a band saw (Into about 1/2 inch cubes) for tincturing. 

Most mushrooms are around 90% water, while reishi is around 75% water. "Science" knows it containes sterols, coumarin, mannitol, polysaccharides, and triterpenoids (ganoderic acids) bit as usual I am sure it is what "science" does not know that is most beneficial.

Our Ling Zhi In Tinctures and Powerful 5:1 Extract Powders
2-3 droppers of tincture 2 x daily or 1 gram powder 2 x daily is all it takes.  (100 grams powder lasts 50 days. A 4 oz tincture lasts 24 days, 16 oz tincture lasts 96 days and a 3-Pac extract powder lasts 150 days)

The Chinese name, Ling Zhi, means
"Herb Of Spiritual Potency"
The adenosine in Ling Zhi relaxes skeletal muscles, calms the central nervous system and operates against the stimulating action of caffeine and other drugs. This also works very well aginst depression and insomnia. This action in Traditional Chinese Medicine addresses the shen (spirit) and is considered a way to open the door for wisdom. 

The amazing list of benefits from Ling Zhi:
Reishi is known very well to be anti-allergin, antioxidant, analgesic, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antiviral, antiparasitic, cardiovascular, antidiabetic, immunomodulating, hepatoprotective, hypotensive and hypertensive, kidney and nerve tonic, and sexual potentiating.
Wow! not bad for a scary looking piece of fungi! 


Ling Zhi Can Help Get People Off Of Steroids:

Ling Zhi is the only known source of a group of triterpenes known as ganoderic acids, which have a molecular structure very similar to steroid hormones.

This would explain why it is such a powerful adrenal fatigue and thyroid remedy. Please see our formula for this called "Zhi-adren" by clicking here

Ling Zhi And It's Use For Asthma:

A 2005 press release from Decision News Media stated, "An oral combination of three Chinese herbs (About 70% Ling Zhi) with a little licorice root and a small amount (About 20%) of the common herb known as Ku Shen (radix sophorae flavascentis) - used to get rid of damp heat and for  lung infections. "This formula is as effective as Predinsone at alleviating asthma symptoms but without such severe side effects, report Chinese and American researchers." - The release refers to a double-blind, placebo-controlled study with a predinsone taking group and a group taking only the Ling Zhi formula published in the September 2005 issue of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.  
This is available from Plant Cures as "Asthma-dren"

This is absolutely huge news!  An herb as potent as steroids in helping asthma. But the results suggest far greater use than for just asthma. The herb group had higher levels of cortisol. Getting your adrenals to make more cortisol on their own is the best thing you can do to modulate any inflammation in your body and to stop adrenal fatigue.

More Benefits of Ling Zhi:
Reishi intensifies the body's free radical scavenging ability and is especially effective against harmful hydroxyl radicals. Reishi is such a strong hydroxyl radical scavenger that its actions continue even after it is absorbed and metabolized.

Reishi is recognized to play a role in preventing spontaneous death in cancer patients. Reishi reinforces membrane of the cancerous cell to impede spreading. It also prevents thrombi formation aiding in fusion of medications within the system.  When taking anti-tumor drugs and chemotherapy Ling Zhi diminishes their side-effects (Though we certainly do not recomend these drugs)  

Reishi is known as a cardiotonic herb due to its ability to improve blood flow and reduce oxygen consumption in the heart muscle. Reishi eliminates cholesterol build-up and promotes blood circulation.
Regular use of this mushroom helps regulate cholesterol levels and platelet activity in the bloodstream.

One of the mushroom's active ingredients, called ganoderic acids, not only have amazing steroid type function but appear to also combat high blood pressure and reduce LDL and triglyceride levels. They also discourage blood platelets from clumping together, thus reducing the risk of dangerous clots.

The mycelium of reishi contains high levels of polysaccharides, which have been shown in research to induce the production of interferon. Interferon is a protein produced inside cells to fight viral infection
 
Polysaccharides are also tumor fighters and help stimulate the immune system. Reishi is also an adaptogen, with properties similar to ginseng. The adenosine relaxes skeletal muscles, calms the central nervous system and operates against the stimulating action of caffeine. Reishi activates the body's immunity system, increasing one's ability to fight against diseases, but it can also arrest the excessive production of allergen to regulate overall functions in the system
. This is why it is fully half of our product called "Strong Defense"  for the Immune system.
