  • What is Red Reishi Mushroom Extract?

    Ganoderma lucidum is the fruiting part of the fungus Ganoderma lucidum of the family Polyporaceae, which is a traditional Chinese fungal medicine with thousands of years of edible history and culture.


    Ganoderma lucidum (Leyss. ex Fr.) Karst, a fungus of the family Polyporaceae, is the medicinal part of Ganoderma lucidum. Scientific research has proved that red reishi mushroom extract and the active ingredients they contain, such as polysaccharides, small molecule proteins, and triterpenoids, can enhance the function of many immune cells in the natural or acquired immune system, and can promote the secretion of many cellular hormones and antibodies, especially when the immune function is in a state of hypoplasia, the immunity-enhancing effect of Ganoderma lucidum is more significant.

    Polysaccharides are a new endogenous active substance extracted from Ganoderma lucidum, a biological immunomodulator. Its immunomodulatory mechanism may be that Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides can directly or indirectly activate the immune cells such as T-cells, B-cells, macrophages, natural killer cells, etc., enhance the activity of Deoxyribonucleic Acid Polymerase α, as well as promote the secretion of interleukin-2, etc., and modulate the cellular and humoral immunity functions of the organism. It regulates the cellular and humoral immune functions, it can significantly increase the phagocytosis of phagocytes.


    Beneficial for the Prevention and Treatment of Diabetes Mellitus

    A study was conducted to observe the efficacy of red reishi mushroom extract in the treatment of 71 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The patients were randomly divided into the Ganoderma lucidum group and placebo group. The Ganoderma lucidum group was given 1800 mg of Ganoderma lucidum extract orally three times a day for 12 weeks. The placebo group took placebo in the same way. Fasting and postprandial glycated haemoglobin, blood glucose, insulin and C-protein were measured in both groups.


    The results showed that red reishi mushroom extract significantly reduced glycated haemoglobin from 8.4% before taking the drug to 7.6% at 12 weeks. Changes in fasting and postprandial blood glucose paralleled the changes in glycated haemoglobin, with postprandial blood glucose of 13.6 mmol/L before taking the drug decreasing to 11.8 mmol/L after 12 weeks of taking the drug, whereas the above indexes of the patients in the placebo group were unchanged or slightly increased.


    Protection Against Non-ionising Radiation

    Red reishi mushroom extract polysaccharides and triterpenoids have anti-ultraviolet radiation effects. Kim et al. used water-soluble polysaccharides isolated from Ganoderma lucidum in an in vitro assay and found that they had similar anti-radiation-induced DNA damage efficacy as the direct Ganoderma lucidum extracts, suggesting that the polysaccharide compounds may be one of the main active components in the anti-radiation function of Ganoderma lucidum.


    Protects the Liver

    Red reishi mushroom extract, especially the Ganoderma triterpene component, increases the activity of superoxide dismutase and catalase, enzymes involved in the elimination of harmful reactive oxygen species. Ganoderma triterpenes were found to be effective in scavenging free radicals and enhancing the body's ability to resist oxidative stress, thereby reducing liver damage. Studies on the protective effect against alcoholic liver injury in mice found that Ganoderma triterpenes could protect against alcohol-induced liver injury by inhibiting lipid peroxidation, increasing antioxidant enzyme activity, and inhibiting apoptosis and immune-inflammatory responses. In addition, in vitro assays also confirmed that Ganoderma triterpenoids had strong cytoprotective effects against t-BHP-induced oxidative damage in human hepatocellular carcinoma cells HepG2.


    Beneficial to Anti-Tumour

    Ganoderma lucidum extract polysaccharides can affect the signal transduction of tumour cells, inhibit the nucleic acid and protein synthesis of tumour cells, strengthen the normal cells to resist the erosion of carcinogens, and at the same time inhibit the adhesion movement of tumour cells and the denaturation of tumour blood vessels, promote the differentiation of tumour cells, enhance the body's tolerance to radiotherapy, and promote the secretion of cytokines to activate the complement and so on. Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides can also inhibit the release of metabolic mediators, thus blocking the occurrence of non-specific reactions, and therefore inhibit the metastasis of cancer cells after surgery. In addition, Ganoderma lucidum and its active ingredients have obvious protective effects on gastrointestinal, liver, kidney and bone marrow damage caused by chemotherapeutic drugs and radiation.


    For Health Products:

    The aqueous extract of red reishi mushroom fruiting bodies and the polysaccharides (peptides) contained therein have immunomodulatory effects, in vivo anti-tumour effects, protection against radiotherapy damage, sedative and analgesic effects, cardiotonic and anti-myocardial ischemic effects, anti-cerebral hypoxia-recombined oxygen damage, antihypertensive effects, blood lipid regulation, hypoglycemic effects, enhancement of DNA polymerase activity, promotion of nucleic acid and protein synthesis, enhancement of hypoxic tolerance, antioxidant scavenging effects, anti-aging effects, anti-chemical and immunological liver damage, anti-experimental gastric ulcers, etc. Free radical scavenging, anti-aging, anti-chemical and immune liver damage, anti-experimental gastric ulcer, etc. The red reishi mushroom extract powder has been used as raw material for health products.


    In Cosmetics:

    The rich superoxide dismutase SOD in Ganoderma lucidum extract can neutralise free radicals and play an antioxidant role. Ganoderma lucidum extract can increase the production of intracellular ATP to a certain extent, charging the cells so that ATP can produce various components that constitute the extracellular matrix, such as collagen, elastin and other factors that maintain cell activity. Ganoderma lucidum extract can be used as a cosmetic raw material.
