Chang, Ph.D.Chief Scientific Advisor, Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. Reishi and Immunity: A Scientific Overview This material is provided for scientific and educational purposes only and should not be distributed or used in conjunction with the sale or distribution of any dietary supplement product. The Human Immune System : The Human Immune System ...…is a complicated network of cells, antibodies and proteins that serves following three main functions: 1. Removes waste and harmful material, to ensure the normal function of the body. 2. Defends against pathogens - bacteria, fungi and virus. 3. Kills and removes dead and altered cells. The Human Immune System : The Human Immune System ......is delicately balanced by a very sophisticated feedback regulation and control system Prolonged immune deficiency can lead to infection, frequent sickness, lack of vigor and energy and impaired metabolism. On the other hand, chronic activation of immune system can also lead to certain autoimmune conditions such as arthritis, lupus, nephritis, allergy, etc. Slide 7: Immune cell “swallows” foreign invader Immune Cells Recognize and Destroy: Pathogens and Altered Cells Chemical message alerts immune system that an invader is present Slide 8: Cell Surface Antigen How does it work? Pathogens, such as bacteria, fungus, virus, have carbohydrates protruding outside of its surface. Altered cells also have carbohydrate antigens protruding. Reishi Mushroom : Reishi Mushroom Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) mushroom is a fungus occurring as a shelf-like form on the sides of trees and stumps in densely wooded mountains with high humidity and low light. The spores of Reishi have such tough outer husks that germination is next to impossible, which accounts for its rarity Reishi Growing Process : Reishi Growing Process 1. Reishi body 2. Basidiomycete produces sporidium 3. Mycelium 1 2 3 Zoom in of Reishi body Growth of Basidiomycete Types of Reishi : Types of Reishi There are 62 types of Reishi, of which six are most common: RED BLACK BLUE WHITE YELLOW PURPLE RED Reishi is preferred because it can produce the highest quality extract and has been subject to the most scientific evaluation Cultivation of Reishi : Cultivation of Reishi In 1971, Yukio Naoi, a researcher of the Kyoto University in Japan, successfully developed the artificial cultivation of Reishi, which resulted in reproducible and consistent production of Reishi. Slide 14: Compounds Identified in Reishi Mushrooms Reishi Spores : Reishi Spores These highly active substances are the essence of Reishi They are the reproductive cells that are released at maturity However, Reishi spores are protected by an extremely hard shell which prevent us from optimally absorbing the actives Traditional Use : Traditional Use Reishi, also known as Lingzhi, is one of the most valued herbal products in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Reishi’s earliest herbal remedies were recorded between 206 B.C. - 8 A.D. In Taiwan, families often give Reishi to their aging grandparents Clinical Research Approach for Reishi : Clinical Research Approach for Reishi The polysaccharides of Reishi can regulate our immune system. It is generally recognized that certain polysaccharides cannot be absorbed by the human body. When our intestine senses the presence of certain polysaccharides, receptors within our body will create a series of signals which then stimulate the body to carry out biological actions that regulate the immune system. Research Findings: Reishi Mushroom & Extracts : Research Findings: Reishi Mushroom & Extracts Cell support Immune dysfunction-related diseases Liver protection Nervous system dysfunction Cardiovascular protection and blood sugar support Pre-Clinical Studies : Pre-Clinical Studies Animal and in vitro studies have shown that Reishi extracts: Enhances activity of lymphocytes and natural killer (NK) cells Enhances activity of cytokines and macrophages Decreases histamine release from mast cells Wang SY, et al. International Journal of Cancer 1997;70(6):699-705. Lu Z, Lin ZB. 1994 International Symposium on Ganoderma Research, October 24-26, 1994, Beijing Medical University, Beijing , China, Program and Abstracts, p. 82. Clinical Studies : Clinical Studies In clinical studies, Reishi extracts have been shown to: Increase levels of T-cell counts, CD4/CD8 ratio, cytokine IL-2, complement C3 and immunoglobulin G Lower levels of T-suppressor cell counts Improve vigor and appetite Shorten recovery time Kupin, V. (1992). The 4th International Symposium on Ganoderma lucidum, Hyatt Regency hotel, June 10, 1992, Seoul, Korea, Program and Abstracts, pp. 36-39. Yang QY, Wang, M. M.
