The fungus Ganoderma lucidum (known as Reishi in Japan and Ling-Zhi in China) can be a natural solution to health problems modern, such as chronic degenerative diseases such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular, among others, the majority being the result of modern lifestyle and the environment. Our society today is facing a serious threat of pollution and its contaminants, which have entered our body through food and the environment to which we are exposed every day. Ganoderma lucidum has some unique functional properties that make it an alternative to the current prevalent health problems. Scientific studies determined that Ganoderma is rich in a variety of active compounds which can be divided into 10 categories: polysaccharides, polypeptides, 16 kinds of amino acids (7 of which are essential for human health), protein, steroids, triterpenoids, mannitol, coumarin, alkaloids, organic acids (mainly of fumarate), enzyme SOD, and micro-elements, such as organic germanium, phosphorus, iron, calcium, manganese, magnesium, Zinc, as well as selenium being this last only present in Ganoderma spores. This fungus has the unusual combination of beneficial active compounds: polysaccharide Lentinan, organic germanium, SOD (superoxide dismutase), AMP (adenosine monophosphate) and Triterpenoids. Within the scientific literature published around the world, mainly in China, Korea, Japan and the United States, where it has shown its effectiveness in the treatment of a wide range of diseases and symptoms, it is possible to find, research and publications, that evidence, effects, and properties such as: possess antitumor activity and immunomodulatory inmunoterapeuticas according to some studies on polysaccharides compoundsterpenes and other isolated body of Ganoderma. The anti-tumor mechanisms is probably due to a combination of different factors: inhibition of angiogenesis (formation of arteries that nourish the tumor); induce and increase the natural destruction and spontaneous (apoptosis) of tumor cells. It has also been suggested that blocks and stops the migration of cancer cells, delaying the presence of metastasis.
