Micotherapy Reishi AVD Reform

Food supplement containing Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) from organic sources (IT BIO 006) – Made in Europe.


Properties:
Also known as the ‘Mushroom of a Thousand Years’ and the ‘Mushroom of Immortality’, Reishi is traditionally regarded as a useful remedy for restoring balance to the body, consequently helping to improve resistance to disease.


Health benefits:
Reishi is a mushroom from which a number of bioactive compounds that partly explain its functions have been isolated; the most important are: polysaccharides, particularly beta-glucans, glycoproteins, triterpenes, sterols, amino acids, nucleosides, and vitamins and minerals, including Germanium in high quantities. The properties of Reishi allow it to regulate and strengthen the immune system. It also has a natural calming effect, helping to improve the ability to cope with psychological and physical stress.
