What are the health benefits of the Reishi mushroom?

G. lucidum is known and used primarily for its pharmaceutical rather than nutritional value - it’s consumed for general health, not to treat an illness. 

As such I have taken commercial products of G. lucidum mycelia and spores and the fruit itself, in encapsulated powder form from a Chinese Malaysian health product store established in the early 1900s - they source mainly from Taiwan, Hong Kong and China.

The specific applications and attributed health benefits of G. lucidum (lingzhi) include control of blood glucose levels, modulation of the immune system, hepatoprotection (ability of a chemical substance to prevent liver damage), bacteriostasis (inhibit the growth of bacteria without destruction). 

The various beliefs regarding the health benefits are based largely on anecdotal evidence, traditional use, and cultural mores.
