Summary of the article:
Good afternoon, dear readers of the site “The Healing Power of Zhivitsa”. For a long time I was going to write an article about such a product as the Reishi mushroom and its medicinal properties, and then the occasion arrived in time (a letter came to the post office in which Elena Ivanovna Panteleeva from the city of Volzhky asks to do this).
I am fulfilling the request of E.I. Panteleeva and publish the article promised to her. Yes, and other people close to traditional medicine, I also think it will be interesting.
What is Reishi Mushroom
Reishi mushroom – what is it? This is a species of fungus that is common throughout the world – a tinder fungus with pronounced medicinal properties.
The history of its use in folk medicine goes back hundreds of years and the mushroom was first tasted in China and Japan. In Russia, Reishi (or as it is also called Ganoderma) began to be used not so long ago, but every year its popularity is only gaining momentum.
This is what it looks like raw
And so, in dried
Reishi mushroom – where it grows in Russia
Many people think that Ganoderma grows only in China and Japan, and because of this, they are so expensive. This is yet another misconception! The Reishi mushroom also grows in Russia. True, you are unlikely to be able to freely go and collect it like a boletus, but the fact that it exists on the territory of our country is a fact!
In the wild it can be found:
- in Altai
- In the North Caucasus
- In the south of Russia (mainly Krasnodar Territory)
Artificially, it can be grown anywhere, the main thing is to create optimal conditions for this, which many do, since the demand for Reishi is very high, as well as the price.
The ideal conditions for growing Reishi are heat, abundance of moisture, the presence of stumps, deadwood, and dried trunks. Ganoderma almost never grows on living trees, and if this happens, then this is a sign that the tree is sick and will soon die.
The chemical composition of the Reishi mushroom
This mushroom has received particular popularity all over the world for its unique healing properties, which are explained by the special chemical composition of Reishi.
You can get acquainted with it, as well as learn about the effect on the human body of its individual components by studying this table.
|Germanium||Promotes the activation of metabolism and increases the defenses of the human body. In addition, it is characterized by antitumor activity, as it acts on the body, preventing the development of neoplasms and preventing the spread of metastases.|
|Triterpenoids||They protect against allergic manifestations, are characterized by hepatoprotective and antitumor activity, a slight analgesic effect, also normalize blood composition and adjust the hemostasis system, reduce the likelihood of blood clots, help normalize blood pressure in hypertension, as well as lower the amount of harmful cholesterol.|
|Polysaccharides beta-glucans||They have a pronounced immunomodulatory and antitumor effect, eliminate various pathogens, and contribute to the normalization of pressure and blood sugar.|
|Vitamins B3 and B5 as well as C and D||Participate in carbohydrate and fat metabolism, regulate the function of the nervous system. Vitamin B 5, for example, is of great importance for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland and adrenal glands. Vitamin C helps to strengthen the immune system and the body’s defenses.|
|Coumarins, alkaloids and phytoncides, flavonoids||Coumarins are valuable for their antitumor, antispasmodic and vasodilating properties.
Alkaloids are excellent stimulants of the central nervous system.
Phytoncides are natural antibiotics.
And flavonoids have bactericidal, cardiotonic, choleretic and antispasmodic properties.
Medicinal properties of Reishi mushroom and its use in traditional medicine
Due to its unique composition and excellent medicinal properties, Reishi mushroom is widely used both in traditional medicine and as one of the components in various dietary supplements, collections, etc.
On my blog, for example, there is an article about the herbal collection Altai Key, which is used to clean blood vessels and lower cholesterol. So there, Reishi is just used as one of the components.
Let’s look at what healing properties it has and for what diseases it can be used.
Allergy in any of its manifestations
It has long been proven that Reishi mushroom quickly and in a short time relieves skin itching, eliminates swelling and other consequences of skin dermatitis.
This happens due to the active components that are abundant in the composition of this fungus. Ganodermic acids also play an important role in this.
Any diseases of the heart and blood vessels
Again, due to its chemical composition, Reishi has an anti-sclerotic effect, actively fights cholesterol (how to lower it), and prevents blood clots from forming.
Preparations containing Reishi mushroom improve myocardial oxygen supply and have an excellent cardiotonic effect, contributing to the normalization of strength and heart rate.
Any diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (gastritis, colitis, etc.)
Due to the presence of magnesium, vitamins B and triterpenoids in the composition of ganoderma, an antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory and even analgesic effect is achieved!
The smooth muscles of the intestine are completely relaxed, colic is eliminated. With the daily use of preparations based on the fungus, the symptoms of dysbacteriosis are eliminated and the composition of the intestinal microflora is normalized.
Viral infections such as SARS, influenza
It has been observed that people who take Reishi mushroom preparations for prophylactic purposes are much less likely to be affected by viral infections, they have stronger immunity.
The active components that make up the fungus fight the development of tumors, both benign and malignant.
With regular intake, the growth of cells is activated, the task of which is to protect the human immune system, their life cycle is lengthened, all immunological parameters of cancer patients are also significantly improved.
Due to the presence of natural immunomodulators, the Reishi mushroom lengthens the remission period.
In addition to the listed diseases, Ganoderma and preparations based on it are used in the treatment of:
- diffuse pathologies of the kidneys and liver
- various pathologies of the central nervous system
- sleep disorders

Ways to use Reishi in traditional medicine
Reishi mushroom can be found in pharmacies in a variety of forms, including badah. There are various medicinal herbal preparations with the addition of Ganoderma. I will deliberately refrain from discussing the uses of these drugs. There are detailed instructions that you need to follow.
In the same article, I will only touch on the uses of the mushroom, in its natural form (the 3 most popular). This is enough to treat any disease. So, here are the options:
- Reishi mushroom extract
- water infusion
- Alcohol tincture
To prepare an oil extract, you need to take 50 gr. dry and ground Reishi mushroom and 0.5 liters of flaxseed oil, heated to 40 … 45 degrees.
Extract in a glass dish in a dark and warm place. Keep for 7 days, shaking occasionally. Drink, shaking, without filtering, 1 tablespoon three times a day 30 minutes before meals.
It is correct to drink the oil extract according to the following scheme:
- they drink for three days, then they drink vodka tincture for three days, then again the oil extract, and so on.
The course of treatment is 1 … 1.5 months. If necessary, it can be repeated after a short break.
To prepare an aqueous infusion of Reishi mushroom, take 50 grams of mushroom well dried and ground in a coffee grinder and 1.5 liters of melt water heated to 45 degrees.
Melt water is obtained simply by freezing in a freezer and then defrosting. Insist water infusion in a 2-liter thermos during the day.
It is important to fill the thermos no more than ¾ of the volume, so that after the vapors condense under the cork, a vacuum occurs. The thermos should be wrapped and kept in a warm place.
The contents must be shaken periodically in order for the beneficial properties of the fungus to better penetrate into the infusion.
- Two tablespoons per half glass of water three times a day in the intervals (30 minutes before or after) between meals and receptions of vodka tincture or oil extract of Reishi.
- When taken, the infusion is not filtered.
- We take 50 gr. dry, chopped or ground mushroom and 0.5 liters of good vodka.
- It is better to insist in a glass dish in a dark place for 2-3 weeks, shaking occasionally.
You need to drink the tincture without filtering, 1 teaspoon per third of a glass of water three times a day 30 minutes before meals.
They drink, shaking and not filtering, for three days, then for three days you need to drink an oil extract, then again for three days – a tincture, etc. Course – 1 – 1.5 months. Then a break for one month, and again the course. There may be several such courses of treatment, it all depends on the severity of the disease.
It is not recommended to use preparations based on Reishi mushroom for the following categories of people:
- Women during breastfeeding
- Children under 12 years old (alcohol tincture)
- People with poor blood clotting
In addition, it is not recommended to take any preparations based on the Reishi mushroom at the same time as taking anticoagulants. To exclude any complications, I recommend that you consult a doctor before starting a course of treatment.
How much does Reishi mushroom cost and where can I buy it
If you do not have the opportunity to procure raw materials yourself, then the only option left is to buy a ready-made, dried Reishi mushroom.
The price for it is about 400 rubles per 50 grams. Do not forget that 50 grams raw and dried are two big differences. This amount will definitely be enough for you for 1 full course of treatment.
Important! When ordering, try to check with the manager in what form they sell their goods. Prefer whole mushrooms so you can see what you have purchased, don’t buy the powder. You can always grind dried raw materials yourself. By the way, Altayvita (yellow banner) always sends its products in its entirety, no matter what it is – mushrooms, herbs or herbal preparations.
In conclusion, I want to say that alcohol tinctures are always more effective than water infusions. This is a fact beyond doubt, since alcohol draws out all the beneficial substances from herbs, mushrooms, berries, etc. better than water. I look forward to your comments!

Because of the glossy surface, it is called varnished (lucidum) – Ganoderma lucidum. Photos of the fungus confirm – Ganoderma has a dark brown or orange-red color with a varnished surface. It does not grow in any conditions: Avicenna claimed that only ten plum trees out of ten thousand can take root and grow. This explains why in the countries of Southeast Asia the tinder fungus was very much appreciated and expensive, being called the “imperial mushroom”: only wealthy aristocrats or doctors of the Chinese emperor could buy ganoderma.
Ganoderma varnished is a natural adaptogen containing many organic acids, amino acids, antioxidants, bioactive substances, minerals (germanium concentration is especially high), phytoncides, coumarins, peptides, steroids, lipids, polysaccharides and vitamins needed by the human body.
