Ganoderma lucidum improves symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and epilepsy

According to ancient Chinese medicine books, Ganoderma lucidum can "soothe the nerves, increase wisdom and improve memory."
In October 2000, Liu Gengtao, Professor of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, mentioned an animal experiment that impressed him most during an exclusive interview in Beijing:
We trained the two groups of mice to swim and guided them to know the location of the safe island (rest platform). After they knew, they were not allowed to go into the water instantly. After a while, they were thrown into the water for a swim, and the group fed with Ganoderma remembered how to swim to the island, and their coat was smooth; Another group of mice that did not eat Ganoderma suffered memory loss and had significantly fewer successful trips to the safety island, and they had a dull coat color. 
This Academician (Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering) who has conducted in-depth research on the water extract of 
Reishi mushroom spore powder believes that "helping learning and memory" is one of the important manifestations of Ganoderma's anti-aging. In fact, everyone can accept the normal aging phenomenon, that is, the forgetfulness featuring "forgetting for a while and suddenly recalling afterwards", not to mention how many new skills can be learned at a large age.
It's a danger to suffer from dementia, that is, forgetting how to bathe, what the remote controller is for and where home is because the condition will evolve from amnesia to "forget who I am and who you are" and even a complete change of the temperament into aggressiveness, illusion and even the loss of self-care ability and language ability.


The causes of dementia can be divided into two categories: "vascular dementia" and "degenerative dementia". Alzheimer's disease is the most common, accounting for 60 to 70 percent of all dementias.
The disease was first discovered by Doctor Alzheimer in Germany, whose surname is the name of the disease. The first woman ever diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease was sent to the hospital by her family and became a patient of Doctor Alzheimer because she had gone from a hard-working, neat and obedient housewife to a "psychopath" whose personality was so eccentric that her family barely knew her and who often got lost. The problem is that she is only fifty-one years old, a long way from what most people think of as old.


Five years later, in 1906, the woman died. An autopsy revealed that most of her brain had shrunk and tangled and that nearly a third of her nerve cells had died. Alzheimer's disease appeared, and the woman who said "I lost myself" in hospital wrote the truest and saddest commentary on the disease.
Today, more than a hundred years later, scientists have a deeper understanding of Alzheimer's disease: β-amyloid deposited in the brain of patients will release neurotoxins and damage the hippocampus that controls the long-term memory, which is the main cause of dementia. Although it is more common in people over the age of 65, some people get it early. A person diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease often has only three to nine years of life left, and only a few patients live more than fourteen years. At this time, the significance of "living longer and better" has been lost.
In fact, we must be more vigilant about Alzheimer's disease, because in the United States from 2000 to 2010, the death rate from cancer and cardiovascular disease has been reduced by 30 percent, but the death rate from Alzheimer's disease has increased by 40 percent. That trend continued through 2015 -- the top 10 known causes of death are on the decline, but only Alzheimer's disease and diabetes are causing concern. People with diabetes are more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease.

Lingzhi can prevent or delay the onset of dementia.
Although there seems to be no report on the effects of Ganoderma on vascular dementia, many studies have shown that Ganoderma can reduce the occurrence of cerebral vascular obstruction with different Ganoderma components including polysaccharides, sterols and immunomodulatory proteins. It also protects nerve cells and reduces damage during cerebral ischemia, which more or less illustrates the possibility of Ganoderma in preventing and treating vascular dementia.
What’s more commonly discussed is dementia associated with Alzheimer's disease. Many cell experiments have confirmed that Ganoderma can reduce the production of β-amyloid, inhibit the release of neurotoxin from this protein, protect the nerve cells of the hippocampus and maintain the normal operation of neural message transmission.


Animal experiments have also found that if Ganoderma lucidum extract is given to elderly rats in advance, no matter whether the extract is mainly composed of triterpenes or a combination of triterpenes and polysaccharides, two months of feeding can lessen the rats' β-amyloid deposition and improve their learning skills and memory.
