Dr. Andrew Weil states, “Reishi has been the subject of a surprising amount of scientific research in Asia and the West.”
This video shares some of the research and usage of reishi with HIV, AIDS, cancer and more, with its active components most studied include the beta-glucan polysaccharides and the triterpenes.
Below are some of the statements and resources included in this video.
It is used as an immune stimulant by patients with HIV according to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
Although the West is engaging in lots of research around reishi and other medicinal mushrooms, the East has been doing so for many more years. Japan even approved reishi as a cancer drug. The beta glucans can apparently stimulate the body to combat tumors and bind to their cells.
In Japan at the Toyama Medical and Pharmaceutical University they found the triterpene, Ganoderic acid compounds were “found to be active as anti-HIV-1 agents.”
There’s lots more research where all that came from. Thus reishi is continuing to earn its reputation as a powerful helper for our immune system.
Check out our new high quality organic reishi extract, high in both beta-glucans and triterpenes.

The mushroom works against tumor cells by acting as an immune system enhancer. The upper hand of Reishi mushrooms is proved by epidemiological evidence and theories. Human beings, who dread the presence of cancer, should consume at least two glasses of Reishi mushroom tea per day. This is a statement devoured by Dr. Teow Sun of the MARA institute in Malaysia. After several clinical trials, he proved that Reishi helps in cancer prevention by enhancing the body’s immunity.
How does Reishi Fight against Cancer?
Reishi mushrooms have anti-inflammatory properties. This increases the rate at which Reishi battles against cancer.
Many people are afraid to undergo chemotherapy, as the treatment is painful and tiring. In such cases, patients who suffer from serious chemotherapy side effects should consume Reishi mushrooms. The mushroom is often very useful for soothing the harmful and painful side of chemotherapy.
As a result, patients can complete their chemo-sessions more successfully. Chemotherapy causes common side effects like diarrhea and nausea and these side effects can be eradicated by consuming Reishi mushrooms.
Consuming Reishi Mushrooms
Reishi mushroom powder is often a lot more powerful than capsules. This is because dried Reishi mushrooms have the ability to mute genes. As a result, the production of cancer cells could be inhibited. Dr. D. Silva from the Methodist Research Institute states that Reishi mushrooms have chemicals that would trigger various inflammatory processes. Consequently, the production of complex compounds like cytokines will become rapid. This would eradicate the presence of inflammatory diseases and may help against cancer.
