Study Finds Tissue Benefits of ReishiMax GLp®

A prestigious nutrition and health journal published a study using Pharmanex's ReishiMax GLp. The study demonstrates the effects of Ganoderma lucidum on cell proliferation in breast cells. The study yielded results suggesting the Ganoderma lucidum, or Reishi Mushroom, had a desirable effect on healthy cell proliferation in human breast cells. This study was in response to a comprehensive review by national and international health organizations correlating the importance of proper nutrition.


This study suggests that the isolated polysaccharides and triterpenes within Reishi mushrooms contain healthy proliferation effects through different mechanisms, including by stimulation of the immune response (polysaccharides) or by the cytotoxic effects. Not only did these mechanisms prove to be efficacious in human breast cells but previous research has shown similar results in prostate cells as well.

Previously researchers had difficulty defining the biologically active components in their samples of Ganoderma lucidum. After purchasing Pharmanex® ReishiMax GLp powder extract with cracked-spore technology they were able to use a standardized amount of product thus enhancing the results of the study.
