Traditional Uses of Reishi Mushroom
Reishi, listed in the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia and Therapeutic Compendium, has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for 2,500 years.
In China the mushroom is considered an immune system modulator and used for treating viral infections such as the flu (influenza), swine flu, and avian flu.
Other traditional uses include treating respiratory problems (asthma and bronchitis), as well as stomach ulcers and heart disease.
Reishi mushroom has been used to help enhance the immune system, reduce stress, improve sleep, and lessen fatigue. People also take reishi mushroom for health conditions such as:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Cardiovascular disease
- Liver or kidney disease
- Respiratory diseases (such as asthma)
- Viral infections (such as the flu)
- Cancer and support during chemotherapy
- Pain during and after a shingles outbreak
- Building strength and stamina
There is some scientific evidence of its effectiveness, including lab research and some small human studies. Researchers are beginning to look at the chemical makeup of this mushroom to better understand how and whether it really works for each of these conditions.
