“High cholesterol” often means that the food is delicious and satisfies the taste buds, but it may cause the burden on the body. It would be nice if there is any way to make the best of both worlds!
Ganoderma lucidum may help us achieve this wish because according to a report published by Taiwan University in December 2016, "BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine", Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide with beta 1,3/1,6 structure can not only boost the immunity of the mouse but also can reduce the inflammation of the heart, liver, spleen, kidney and sputum caused by high cholesterol diet.
According to the report, Lingzhi polysaccharide has an effect of promoting inflammation, but it is interesting that it has an inhibitory effect on abnormal inflammation caused by a high cholesterol diet.
The results of this study allow us to see the two-way regulation of Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides on the inflammatory (immune) response. To some extent, Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides are highly safe - they can moderately boost the immune system, but do not contribute to abnormal inflammation.
Long-term excessive inflammatory response is the source of various civilized diseases, and diet is the factor that influences the inflammatory response. If you want both the food and health, then eat more Reishi Mushroom !
