Coffees Could Never Get Healthier Than This Ganoderma Lucidum

Your coffee in china, or wait a second, shipping facility is already invented and available, so, do not be astonished if your coffee in Jamaica, Canada and in the United States Of America would taste organic, because it can have mushrooms in it.

The lingzhi mushroom or reishi mushroom which literally means ” the supernatural mushroom” encompasses several fungal species of the genus Ganoderma, and most commonly refers to the closely related species, Ganoderma lucidum and Ganoderma tsugae. The mushroom enjoys special veneration in East Asia, where it has been used as a medicinal mushroom in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years, making it one of the oldest mushrooms known to have been used medicinally. Because of its presumed health benefits and the apparent absence of side-effects, it has attained a reputation in the East as the ultimate herbal substance and is also listed in the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia and Therapeutic Compendium for the same.

Ganoderma lucidum produces a group of triterpenes, called ganoderic acids, which have a molecular structure similar to steroid hormones. It may possess anti-tumour, immunomodulatory and immunotherapeutic activities, supported by studies on polysaccharides, terpenes, and other bioactive compounds isolated from fruiting bodies and mycelia of this fungus. It has also been found to inhibit platelet aggregation and to lower blood, cholesterol, and blood sugar. Laboratory studies have shown anti-neoplastic effects of fungal extracts or isolated compounds against some types of cancer, including epithelial ovarian cancer. In an animal model, Ganoderma has been reported to prevent cancer metastasis, with a potency comparable to Lentinan from Shiitake mushrooms. Although it would be totally different news if it was tested on humans as well, the process is risky as the person diagnosed with cancer would not want to take any further risks.

Additional studies indicate that ganoderic acid can help to strengthen the liver against liver injury by viruses and other toxic agents in mice, suggesting a potential benefit of this compound in the prevention of liver diseases in humans, because the heart and other organs of mice are in a similar structure in comparison of that of a human and if it is proved effective on mice it can be proved effective on humans as well although estimating the quantity is the only task that researchers would have to go through. Besides effects on mammalian physiology, Ganoderma is reported to have anti-bacterial and anti-viral activities.

Due to its bitter taste, it is traditionally prepared as a hot water extract or like mentioned earlier your coffee as coffees are usually bitter in taste the addition of this anti-bacterial herb would only make it healthier and camouflage its flavour into the coffee’s bitterness. All that milk, sugar and caffeine could get you away from coffee, but with this new invention, there are sure to be more coffee lovers in the mentioned countries and rather healthier people as well.

Talking about cholesterol, this seems to be at hype in the medical field, which can be reduced by the intake of Ganoderma Lucidum, now nothing could get better than this.
