What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are called adaptogens because they help the body adapt to stress. They do this by increasing the body’s resistance to stressors, both physical and emotional. Adaptogens work by balancing the body’s hormones and neurotransmitters, and by improving the function of the immune system.
Potential health benefits of Reishi mushroom backed by science :
- Immune system boost: Reishi affects white blood cell genes, crucial for immunity. ( R 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
- Anti-cancer properties: Test-tube studies demonstrate that it can lead to cancer cells death. It may complement traditional treatment, increasing white blood cell activity and improving quality of life. Research explores its potential for prostate and colorectal cancer. ( R 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
- Reduce fatigue and depression: Reishi shows promise in reducing anxiety, depression, and enhancing quality of life in certain conditions (neurasthenia and breast cancer in the studies). ( R 1, 2)
- Heart health and blood sugar: Studies indicate it may lower blood sugar, increase HDL cholesterol, and reduce triglycerides in individuals with varying blood sugar and lipid levels. ( R 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
It is important to note that adaptogens work differently for everyone, and some people may experience more benefits than others.
Also, while the studies are promising, more research on the effects of reishi on cancer development in humans is needed.
