Reishi & Cholesterol.

The reishi mushroom, ganoderma lucidum, has been the subject of much research in recent years. One of the reasons why it has caught the attention of scientists has to do with its unique cholesterol-lowering abilities.

While cholesterol is a natural component of the human body, and is in fact required for cells to retain healthy membranes, too much cholesterol can lead to health problems such as cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease, in turn, can lead to even more serious problems like heart attacks and strokes. For this reason, it is important to keep cholesterol at an appropriate and safe level.

The Incredible Results:

Multiple studies have been published concerning the efficacy of reishi in reducing cholesterol levels. Extracts of Reishi lowers cholesterol created in the liver, intestines, and other cholesterol-producing organs. It also works by increasing the amount of cholesterol that is absorbed and repurposed by cells, thereby reducing the amount of free cholesterol in the body.

With reishi’s dual-approach to limiting cholesterol’s presence, it functions as an effective cholesterol inhibitor that can reduce your chance for heart disease and other harmful conditions.

“They [reishi compounds] appear to have significant hypocholesterolemic [significant cholesterol reducing] activity upon oral administration …” [1]
