Ganoderma and Tremella Herbal Supplement
Power Mushrooms is a combination of four mushrooms known to have immune system regulating functions. Health Concerns uses wild red ganoderma, which is stronger than the more common black cultured ganoderma or Mushroom Mycelia. Studies on red ganoderma (Reishi/ling zhi) have shown it to regulate immune functions and coronary and cerebral blood flow, reduce blood lipid levels, protect the liver from toxic chemical damage, and treat liver disease. In Japan, ganoderma extracts are used to treat cancer and myasthenia gravis, where the immune system attacks peripheral nerves. Polyporus (zhu ling) a relative of Maitake is used in China as an anti-inflammatory in kidney diseases and as a source of tumor-inhibiting polysaccharides. Tremella (bai mu er) contains tumor and ulcer inhibiting polysaccharides. Poria (fu ling) is a digestive aid and mild sedative. Taken together, the mushrooms in this formula act as an effective Qi tonic.
The ability of your immune system to function smoothly is a huge factor in your body's overall health. Your immune system is made up of a collection of organs cells and proteins that fight off harmful bacteria. Your body fights off these intruders by producing an immune response which occurs whenever your body sends white blood cells to find and destroy potentially harmful bacteria or viruses.
