Further information about Planetary Herbals eishi Mushroom Supreme

Reishi has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for at least 2,000 years.2 The Chinese name ling zhi translates as the ?herb of spiritual potency? and was highly prized as an elixir of immortality.3 Its Traditional Chinese Medicine indications include treatment of general fatigue and weakness, asthma, insomnia, and cough.4

Active constituents
Reishi contains several major constituents, including sterols, coumarin, mannitol, polysaccharides, and triterpenoids called ganoderic acids. Ganoderic acids may lower xxxxxxx as well as decrease LDL (?bad?) cholesterol. These specific triterpenoids also help reduce blood platelets from sticking together?an important factor in lowering the risk for coronary artery disease. While human research has been reported that demonstrates some efficacy for the herb in treating altitude sickness and chronic hepatitis B, these uses still need to be confirmed in well-designed human trials.5 Animal studies and some very preliminary trials in humans suggest reishi may have some beneficial action in people with diabetes mellitus and cancer.6 Two controlled clinical trials have investigated the effects of reishi on high xxxxxxx in humans and both found it could lower xxxxxxx significantly compared to a placebo or controls.7 8 The people with hypertension in the second study had previously not responded to medications, though these were continued during the study.

How much is usually taken?
Reishi can be taken either as 1.5?9 grams per day of the crude dried mushroom, 1?1.5 grams per day in powdered form, 1 ml per day of tincture, or as a tea.9

Are there any side effects or interactions?
Side effects from reishi can include dizziness, dry mouth and throat, nosebleeds, and abdominal upset. These rare effects may develop with continuous use over three to six months.10 Pregnant or breast-feeding women should consult a physician before taking reishi.

Are there any drug interactions?
Certain medicines may interact with reishi. Refer to drug interactions for a list of those medicines.
