REISHI ACTIONS
IMMUNITY
MISTY DAY PLANT POTIONS
Modulates immunity so supports an immune system under
pressure. A randomised placebo-controlled study in 3-5year-old children given reishi extract in yoghurt showed an
increase in immune cells critical for defence against
pathogens. This has real life applications for children
attending preschools as their immature immune systems
make them more prone to infections.
ALLERGIES
As well as immuno-modulatory activity, reishi
demonstrates suppression of inflammatory mediators (IL6, TNF –alpha, NO, E2). This combination of
immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory and antihistamine
activity contributes to its efficacy in the treatment of
allergies and other inflammatory conditions. Of particular
mention is the use of reishi in the treatment of allergic
rhinitis. It may also provide benefits for constitutional and
food allergies with longer term use.
