Ganoderma lucidum is known as LingZhi in Chinese and Reishi in Japanese. Ganoderma lucidum is one of the most commonly used medicinal mushroom, and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine as a tonic and sedative in Asian countries, including China, Japan and Korea over the past two millennia. The fruiting bodies, mycelia and spores of LingZhi contain approximately 400 different bioactive compounds, included polysaccharides, triterpenoids, nucleotides, sterols, steroids, fatty acids, proteins or peptides and trace elements. It has long been recognized by Chinese medical professionals as a valuable herbal medicine in treating a number of different illnesses.

The Science Behind LingZhi
Shizhen Li, a highly influential doctor in Chinese medicine from the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644 A.D.), recorded the effectiveness of Lingzhi in his famous book, Ban Chao Gang Moo (“Comprehensive Pharmacopoeia”), and stated that taking Lingzhi over the long-term would build a strong, healthy body
and assure longevity1. It has been known to have numerous pharmacological effects including immuno-modulating, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, anti-oxidative and radical-scavenging, and anti-aging effects2. Enormous scientific studies revealed that the extracts of G. lucidum possessed significant anti-tumor3,4, immunomodulating4, anti-diabetic5, and wound healing (Cheng et al., 2013), and neuritogenic7 activities, and protects the cellular DNA from radiotherapy and accidental radiation exposure8.
