Listen to Professor Lin Zhi-Bin's Talk about Protective Effects of Reishi on the Liver
2020-10-27   Source:    Hit:35   Font: 
As we all know, as the largest internal organ of the human body, the liver maintains important functions of life and has always played the role of "the patron saint of human body". Liver disease can cause problems such as reduced immunity, metabolic disorders, easy fatigue, liver pain, poor sleep, loss of appetite, diarrhea, and more serious problems such as "metabolic syndrome" that damages various organs of the body.
To have a healthy body, nourishing the liver is imperative. How to nourish the liver? Come and hear the views of Professor Lin Zhi-Bin, who has been engaged in research on Ganoderma for a long time.
Ganoderma's protective effect on liver
Ganoderma lucidum has been regarded as a top-grade medicine for nourishing the liver since ancient times. According to "Compendium of Materia Medica", "Ganoderma lucidum improves eyesight, nourishes liver qi, and calms the spirit."

Lin Zhi-Bin, professor of the Department of Pharmacology, Peking University School of Basic Medical Sciences
Professor Lin Zhi-Bin said in the program of "Master Talk", "Ganoderma lucidum has a very good hepatoprotective effect."

The curative effect of Ganoderma lucidum on protecting liver

Although Ganoderma lucidum has no direct antiviral hepatitis effect, it has immunomodulatory and hepatoprotective effects, so it can be used as hepatoprotective and immunomodulatory drugs for the treatment and health care of viral hepatitis.

In the 1970s, China began to use Ganoderma lucidum preparations to treat viral hepatitis. According to various reports, the total effective rate was 73.1%-97.0%, and the marked effect (including the clinical cure rate) was 44.0%-76.5%. Its curative effect is manifested as reduction or disappearance of subjective symptoms such as fatigue, loss of appetite, abdominal distension and pain in the liver area. In liver function tests,  (ALT) returned to normal or decreased. The enlarged liver and spleen returned to normal or shrank to varying degrees. Generally speaking, Reishi's effect on acute hepatitis is better than chronic hepatitis or persistent hepatitis.

Clinically, Ganoderma lucidum is combined with some drugs that can injure the liver, which can avoid or reduce liver injury caused by drugs and protect the liver. The hepatoprotective effect of Reishi is also related to its "tonifying liver qi" and "invigorating spleen qi" stated in ancient books of Chinese medicine.

Since the early 1970s, Professor Lin Zhi-Bin has taken the lead in researching the pharmacological effects of Ganoderma lucidum and found that Ganoderma lucidum and its related products have multiple pharmacological effects such as liver protection, lowering blood lipids, lowering blood sugar, immune regulation, anti-tumor, anti-oxidation, and anti-aging.
