How Reishi Mushroom Helps Improve Immune Health

Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is a fungus from Asia that’s also known as lingzhi that has traditionally been used to strengthen the immune system.

In a 2003 study on the effects of reishi mushroom extract on the immune function of cancer patients researchers found the mushroom extract enhanced the immune response of the study participants.1 Another study also supports finding that reishi extract has immune system modulating effects in patients with cancer.2

Researchers in a 28 day trial on football players found that reishi mushroom supplementation was able to strengthen the participant’s immune systems by increasing the counts of the several immune cells and blood levels of cytokines. The researchers concluded that polysaccharides from the mushroom could be the main active compounds which strengthen immune function.3

Reishi may also increase increase the activity of natural killer cells which are a type of white blood cell that can help fight infections.4,5
