Ganoderma lucidum / Red Reishi – Devine fungus of longevity
Red Reishi - "The Medicine of Kings" and its use in improving health
Triterpenes / triterpenoids
Proteins and amino acids
Proteins called LZP-1, LZP-2 and LZP-3 were obtained from fruiting bodies and spores exhibit mitogenic activity. A new protein with immune modulation effect is Ling-Zhi-8, was isolated from the mycelia of Ganoderma. Other bioactive proteins from Ganoderma, such as lectin and ribonuclease were also isolated.
Glycoproteins were also isolated from Ganoderma. Glycoproteins are water soluble and have anti-tumor activity. Binding protein polysaccharides have been found as anti-viral agents against the Herpes simplex virus. Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide peptide (GLPP) has antioxidant properties and can stimulate immune function.
Adenosine, nucleosides, nucleotides, RNAs
After consuming Ganoderma some activities occur in the body. They can be summarized in five phases:
DETECTION (1-30 days)
Ganoderma may help in detecting hidden disorders and toxins in the body and regulate the functions of the body. During this process, the body will show some reactions. These reactions are not side effects, but it will help to detect the area affected by the disorder.
CHELATION – CLEANING (1-30 weeks)
Ganoderma is known as "the queen of toxin removers" because of its power to remove excessive amounts of uric acid, lactic acid, cholesterol, fatty deposits and toxins that have accumulated in the body.
REGULATION (1-12 months)
During the process of consumption, we can observe many reactions. They are a signal that the body is recovering.
BUILDING (6-24 months)
Ganoderma will continue acting, primarily gradually strengthening the immune system to keep the body more resistant to disease. It is also a source of essential elements and vitamins.
REJUVENATION (1-3 years)
The ultimate goal of consuming honey with Ganoderma is to maintain body functions at its optimum level and maintain youthfulness.
Honey is sweet and thick juice that honeybees form of nectar collected on flowers or sweet secretions (honey dew point) of some insects. Honey is the most perfect product of nature, it contains almost all the ingredients that build the human body.
Nectar that bees collect from flowers is the main source of carbohydrates that bees transform into easily digestible sugar - glucose and fructose, which is the main ingredient of honey.
Mature honey contains no more than 15% water, and bees cover ir in the honeycomb with wax caps to protect it from absorbing moisture and from decay. It also contains minerals, amino acids, high-quality organic acids such as formic, malic, citric, acetic, and succinic acid, pigments, various derivatives of chlorophyll, wax, inulin and vitamin B complex components.
All today known attempts at blending the industrial production of honey, despite the overwhelming technology and invested enormous resources, have given devastating results.
If we take honey with Ganoderma without fluid it is desirable to hold it in the mouth until it is dissolved. Due to light digestibility it currently restores lost energy while with a long term appliance it provides physical stamina and mental stability. The property of honey with Ganoderma makes it indispensable food in a healthy diet.
The main ingredients of honey are carbohydrates which make 95-99% of dry matter, depending on type. In honey we also find water, proteins, vitamins, enzymes and various minerals or mineral materials.
The composition of sugars in honey
Acid in honey
The honey that honeybees gather is composed of a series of organic acids. Formic acid for example. is present with 10% of the quantity of honey, although once thought to be more and that is one of the main present acids. Honey contains in addition to formic also oxalic, amber, citric, tartaric, lactic, gluconic, pyroglutamic, maleic, valeric, and benzoic acid.
Proteins in honey are composed of albumin, globulin and peptones which together make up half of colloidal substances in honey. Proteins largely exceed in the honey from salivary glands of bees when the nectar and honeydew is processed in the stomach of a bee in honey.
Vitamins are, among other things, an integral part of honey, however, they are found in very small amounts, insufficient for the needs of the human body. Thus in honey we find vitamin C, B complex, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin and folic acid. The amount of vitamins in honey depends primarily on the flowers from which the bees collect nectar, pollen presence, condition and ripeness of honey and the method of its storage.
Mineral substances in honey
Honey contains: silicon, aluminum, iron, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, manganese, copper, chromium, nickel, zinc, cobalt, antimony, lead, phosphorus. Amounts of minerals depend on the type and origin of honey.
One stick of BodySense® honey (8g) contains:
Eventually, sooner or later each honey has to crystallize. Crystallization is the natural characteristic of each honey. The speed of crystallization depends on the type of honey, and can vary from a few weeks to a couple of years. It is a completely natural process that does not affect the quality of honey.
Decrystallization of honey
Honey can easily return to a liquid state, however, it should bear in mind that honey does not withstand high temperatures. When heated to high temperatures honey loses its natural properties and therefore the maximum heating temperature of honey is 41 ° C. Honey decrystallizes by putting packages into the pan with hot water on the stove by loosening the lid. The temperature should be kept at minimum one or two minutes and until the honey becomes liquid.
Honey in life of people always represented a healthy and available food, that held out despite the emergence of cheaper industrial sugar . In all folk medicine practitioners in all parts of the world recorded a number of recipes with more or less honey. Genetically modified modern food , smoking, stress , pollution of water and some medicines are prone to the accumulation of harmful substances in the body , but propolis successfully prevents disease. Its healing powers have long been known in folk medicine so honey used for strengthening the body, especially children and the elderly. And scientists ascribe antibacterial, antiseptic and antioxidant properties to honey. Honey is extremely beneficial for health , and enhanses, as argued, the work function of the heart and circulatory system. Scientists are still exploring to what degree it is salutary, but have no doubt about it. Especially in combination with Ganoderma.
