Study of new knowledge: clinical trials confirmed that Ganoderma lucidum is conducive to anti-oxidation and liver protection

- Mar 29, 2017-

Healthy people, whether to eat Ganoderma lucidum, there are differences? Or for a point of view, healthy people, need to eat Ganoderma it? This year (2017) February Taiwan Zhongshan Medical University published in the "Pharmaceutical Biology" ("Pharmaceutical Biology") clinical research report, worthy of our reference.


The study used Ganoderma lucidum capsules each net weight 225mg, the contents of Ganoderma lucidum (Ganodermalucidum) extract, which contains 7% of Ganoderma lucidum triterpene acids (including Ganoderma A, B, C, C5, C6, D, E and G ) And 6% of Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide. The contents of the placebo capsule are 90% starch and 10% Ganoderma lucidum extract residue, looks and Ganoderma lucidum capsules exactly the same.


The researchers raised a total of 42 (male 22, female 20) 40 to 54 years old middle-aged volunteers, in addition to a few of them GOT (ie, AST, aspartate aminotransferase) or GPT (ie, ALT, alanine aminotransferase) Slightly higher, or a slight fatty liver or gallbladder polyps, the overall health status are considered good.


They were divided into two groups for a "double-blind crossover trial": one group taking placebo and the other group taking Ganoderma Capsules (taking 1 meal every day after lunch or dinner) for 6 months. All subjects were followed by "natural elimination", do not eat placebo and do not eat Ganoderma lucidum, ruled out the effect of Ganoderma lucidum and placebo on the body, 1 month later, the original taking Ganoderma who changed the placebo, the original comfort Agents to change Ganoderma lucidum, for 6 months.


Ganoderma lucidum to enhance the antioxidant capacity


This experimental design, you can have in the same subjects who observed "eat Ganoderma lucidum" and "placebo" differences. Finally, a total of 39 people completed the trial. The results showed that the height, weight, body fat and body mass index (BMI) of the subjects were not significantly different due to eating Ganoderma lucidum or placebo.


However, the data measured from the subject's blood showed that the total antioxidant capacity (TEAC), as well as the antioxidant enzyme activity and activity were significantly increased, and the damage to the cell membrane and DNA was significantly reduced by taking six months of Ganoderma lucidum. In contrast, placebo did not cause much change (see table below).


Red blood cells within the antioxidant enzymes, but also an important indicator of the body's antioxidant capacity responsible for transporting oxygen molecules in the red blood cells, itself is the most vulnerable to damage to a group of cells, its defense mechanism is more important. The experimental results show that Ganoderma lucidum can significantly enhance the amount of antioxidant enzymes in red blood cells (see table below).

Ganoderma can protect the liver


In addition, Ganoderma lucidum also reduced the GOT and GPT averages by 42% and 27%, respectively. Abdominal B-ultrasound results show that three had the initial fatty liver or gallbladder polyps in the subjects, after conditioning through Ganoderma lucidum, the symptoms almost all returned to normal (see below).



(A), (B) and (C) are the abdominal B-pictures of subjects 10, 19 and 36, respectively, and the former two have a slight fatty liver, the latter Have gallbladder polyps. After eating 6 months of Ganoderma lucidum, the abdomen of the B-photos (in the order of Figure (D), Figure (E), Figure (F)], almost do not see the original symptoms.

Ganoderma let the health upgrade


The results show that Ganoderma lucidum healthy normal people can play to enhance antioxidant, enhance liver function, repair liver damage and other effects, because "oxidation" is "aging" one of the sources, so the results are "anti-aging" significance.


Looking back how many of these subjects eat Ganoderma lucidum? One capsule a day! As long as a small amount of 225 mg Ganoderma lucidum extract, continuous uninterrupted, will be able to have a good health and then upgrade, why not? Definitely more than sick after the help of Ganoderma lucidum, to be more affordable. Of course, the premise is that you eat at least Ganoderma lucidum and the clinical trials of the same as the use of Ganoderma lucidum, rich in triterpenes, but also rich in polysaccharides!
