Reishi fungi have six species classed as medicinal and its red variety is most commonly used to treat arthritis, fatigue, asthma, insomnia and other ailments.
Health Benefits

Reishi mushrooms contain an abundance of chemicals which our body can use to help balance the immune system. The chemicals contained within the fungus have been used to treat a wide variety of different problems, such as:
ankylosing spondylitis
chronic bronchitis
chronic fatigue syndrome
high blood pressure
high cholesterol
stomach ulcers
herpes pain

People will often turn to reishi mushrooms when other prescribed treatments don’t work.
Reishi mushrooms also prove to be an effective alternative to conventional medications for people that would prefer to take natural products instead of conventional treatments.
Some over the counter pain relievers such as Provailen contains reishi mushrooms.

The main benefit of taking Provailen is that people don’t have to go through a lengthy preparation process in order to consume the mushroom. This can give people that are suffering from arthritis, or those that require an anti-inflammatory quicker relief from pain.

There are also other benefits to gain from Provailen consumption. The ingredients that are contained will also be able to increase the body’s muscle strength, giving users more energy and mobility.

The maitake mushroom.
According to the MSKCC herbs website, “The maitake mushroom has traditionally been used in Japan and China as part of the diet and to treat cancer… In laboratory studies, maitake extract was able to stimulate various cells and factors in the immune system. Studies in animals show that it also slows the growth of certain tumors and lowers blood glucose (sugar) levels.”

The maitake mushroom is one of the few of these over-the-counter products where scientific research is underway to test its anticancer effects and its possible strengthening of the immune system. Phase I and II clinical trials are underway at MSKCC. The results so far show only that it’s safe. Whether it has therapeutic benefits will be learned later, in Phase III. But there is already a high level of enthusiasm around the hospital about the possible benefits of maitakes, particularly with respect to its strengthening of the immune system.

More than 100 species of medicinal mushrooms are used in Asia. Some of the more commonly used species include Ganoderma lucidum (reishi), Trametes versicolor or Coriolus versicolor (turkey tail), Lentinus edodes (shiitake), and Grifola frondosa (maitake).
Studies have examined the effects of mushrooms on immune response pathways and on direct antitumor mechanisms. The immune effects are mediated through the mushroom's stimulation of innate immune cells, such as monocytes, natural killer cells, and dendritic cells. The activity is generally considered to be caused by the presence of high-molecular-weight polysaccharides in the mushrooms, although other constituents may also be involved. Clinical trials in cancer patients have demonstrated that G. lucidum products are generally well tolerated.[1]
