Anti-oxidant – with radical scavenging activity it is able to assist in detoxifying the liver. Liver protection and support – in treatments lasting from 2 to 15 weeks, the overall rate of efficiency was 70 to 98%. Anti-allergy/anti-inflammatory – significantly inhibits all four types of allergic reactions, including positive effects against asthma and contact dermatitis During an eight-month study of Alzheimer’s disease, patients taking a Reishi mycelium product demonstrated significant improvement.
