So – How does the body improve its overall well-being?
Firstly, no part of the body can be considered in isolation. Every part is linked to, and affects or is affected by, other parts.
Well-being is properly seen as overall health. This includes how you feel, how your body operates, how it handles stress and environmental threats such as over-acidity, viruses or cellular disorders, and how it develops though the various stages of life.
When Well-being requires improvement, your body is not operating properly, due to the above threats. These may have been encountered through poor nutrition, external factors of stress or exposure to radiation, chemicals etc.
It deals with these threats to its well-being, using inbuilt systems of immune defense, detoxification and rebuilding of cells. However, all these systems are made of cells and all of these cells require correct nutrition.
Ganoderma Lucidum is a select plant that is loaded with a wide range of superior nutrition for the body cells. Some of the most important are:
Polysaccharides: Beta D-Glucan, FA, F1, D-6, A, B, C-2, D, G-A Betaglucan, G-Z

How can one fungus help the human body in so many ways?
Traditional Eastern medical science explains Reishi’s wide range of medicinal applications better, perhaps, than mainstream medicine ever could. According to Eastern thought, the body needs to defend itself against threats to its “equilibrium.” These threats can be physical, such as viruses and bacteria that cause infection; emotional, such as stressors that cause anxiety; or energetic, in that they reduce alertness. Whatever the threat, Reishi helps the body maintain its defense against these threats to its equilibrium, helping the body to maintain balance. In this sense, if the body is out of balance, this is why an equilibrium-enhancing remedy such as Reishi can help so many diverse ailments.
Different types of Reishi
Though there are six different types of Reishi, all classified by color, herbalists generally call red Reishi the most potent and medicinal variety, and thus it is the most commonly used form of reishi in North America, Japan, China, Taiwan and Korea. In the wild, the mushroom grows on deciduous trees in heavily forested areas of China and Japan, but it’s now easily and widely cultivated commercially, so you don’t have to venture into the forest to enjoy the benefits of what “Herbal Medicine-Maker’s Handbook” author James Green calls a “remarkably beneficial fungus for the human body.”
However, keep in mind that Reishi isn’t exactly the kind of mushroom you’ll want to put in your next salad, either. Since it’s more than 90 percent indigestible fiber, Reishi has an extremely wood-like texture and to top it off, it’s unpleasantly bitter. In spite of this bitter flavor, many Reishi enthusiasts use ground Reishi to make a life-enhancing tea or even use the mushrooms in soups. For the less daring take Reishi capsules, tablets and extracts, and Japanese research suggests taking vitamin C along with it may enhance Reishi’s medicinal effects.
