Reishi & Bronchitis.

Lung (lung and large intestine): In mice Reishi mushroom benefits the lungs as an expectorant by helping clear them of mucus. In the 1970’s over 2000 patients with chronic bronchitis and bronchial asthma were part of clinical studies in China. They found that after 2 weeks on Reishi supplements, 60-90% of patients had a marked improvement, many even having an increase in appetite. The immune system is seen as seated in the Lung organ system according to TCM. The benefits of Reishi mushrooms are most apparent with its immunomdulating effects. This means that if the immune system is under reacting, the Ganoderma mushroom will boost immunity and if it’s over reacting, it will calm it down! Beta-D-glucan, a type of polysaccharide, appears to be the main contributor to this valuable effect.
