Scope of Ganoderma mushroom cultivation in world | Ganoderma mushroom business | Ganoderma mushroom training

Ganoderma lucidum, a medicinal mushroom, is among the most popular herbal medicines in world that has been used to modulate immune functions, inhibit tumor growth and in the treatment of chronic conditions like hypertension and hyperglycemia.

Reishi is a type of mushroom used to promote health and longevity in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine. Also known as the lingzhi mushroom, reishi had a red, kidney-shaped cap and finger-like spores on its underside rather than gills. The species of reishi most commonly used for medicine is Ganoderma lucidum.

Many of the purported benefits of reishi are attributed to a group of compounds called ganoderic acids, which have a similar structure to steroid hormones. Reishi is also rich in beta-glucans (which can help improve cholesterol and glucose levels).

Because of its bitter taste and woody texture, reishi is not typically used for cooking. However, it is can be used to make tea or medicinal tonics.

 

Health Benefits

Alternative practitioners believe that reishi is able to treat fatigue, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and inflammation by bolstering the immune system. Others have ascribed it with "cure-all" properties that are far-reaching in their scope.

Reishi is purported to help control blood sugar levels, liver problems, immune system issues, and as an antibiotic.

Few of these health claims are supported by research. Of the studies currently available, most are limited to test tubes or small-scale animal or human trials.

Much of the current scientific focus has been placed on reishi's effect on viral and bacterial infections, diabetes, and cancer. While some of the results are promising, none are robust enough to recommend reishi as a treatment for any medical condition.

 

Viral Infections

Most research on reishi and viruses has been in laboratory settings, including herpes, HIV and Hepatitis B. While promising, the same level of control has not been seen outside of the test tube.2



A 2007 study from Japan, involving 18 people, reported that a herbal remedy containing G. lucidum was able to shorten the duration of HSV-2 (genital herpes) outbreak from an average of 10.9 days to 4.0 days.

An earlier study in 1998 by the same team reported that a G. lucidum extract was able to dramatically reduced postherpetic pain in two people with an HZV (shingles) infection and two people with treatment-resistant HSV-2.

The conclusions from both of the studies are limited by their size and the lack of qualitative measures for postherpetic pain.

 

Bacterial Infections

There is even less evidence supporting the antibacterial effects of reishi. Although there have several studies demonstrating how G. lucidum can neutralize bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the test tube, there is little proof that consuming a reishi extract will do the same.

 


Diabetes

The beta-glucans found in reishi are believed to aid in the management of diabetes. However, according to a 2015 Cochrane Review, any studies in humans have been of low quality and there's little to no evidence that taking reishi will have a positive effect on cardiovascular disease risk factors in people with diabetes.

 


Cancer

A number of lab studies have investigated reishi's ability to stimulate the immune response, most specifically with regards to the treatment of cancer. In the lab, reishi has been shown to kill tumor cells and boost the activity of immune cells such as natural killer cells (NK), T-cells, B-cells, tumor necrosis factor (TNF), and phagocytes (which ingest other cells)

What is the major problems in mushroom cultivation?

Problems and solutions in the cultivation of the mushroom including: a) Mycelium fails to form Improper initiation strategy.  Solutions : consult parameter of growth. Alter moisture, temperature, light, carbon dioxide, etc.  Note : If the substrate is too moist, decrease moisture b) Chlorinated or contaminated water.  Solutions :  Use activated charcoal water filters to eliminate chemical contaminants or any other ways of simple or appropriate technology. c) Bad substrate.  Solutions : Check substrate. Spread the substrate and remix the substrate, package again, make sure all raw materials are good and fresh.   Note : It is necessary to pasteurize immediately after bagging otherwise fermentation gas will slow down the rate of growth of mycelium or stop mycelium growth. d) Bad pasteurization.  Solutions : Check method of pasteurization. Release all air and make sure there is continuous steam before starting pasteurization for a period of 3h. e) The substrate in the bag is too hot when i

Oyster mushroom vs button mushroom nutrition | Nutritional comparison between oyster and button mushrooms

Oyster mushrooms are beloved the world over for their delicate texture and mild, savory flavor.  Oyster mushrooms are more expensive than white button mushrooms but less so than rarer mushrooms like morels, and take little prep since they can be used whole or chopped.                                Oyster: “These are low in calories and rich in fiber, protein, selenium [which may help prevent cancer], niacin [aka, vitamin B3] and riboflavin [aka, vitamin B2].Oyster mushrooms also contain an active compound called benzaldehyde, which has potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, research shows oyster mushrooms may significantly reduce blood glucose levels. They have also been shown to help lower cholesterol levels.”    White Button: White button mushrooms represent 90 percent of the total mushrooms consumed. “They’re a good source of potassium, B vitamins, calcium, phosphorus [which supports bone and teeth health] and iron. They also contain selenium, a trace
