Reishi and its effect on sleep disorders

Reishi GReishi and sleepanoderma Lucidum is well known for its immune boosting and anti-inflammatory properties.  However, there are many other little known beneficial effects that actually can be easily measured.  One such benefit is the regulation of sleep activities.   One theory abound speculates that reishi stimulates the pineal gland, a small endocrine gland located in the center of the brain, which primary function is to regulate the sleep-wake cycle by producing melatonin which causes drowsiness and lowering the body temperature.  Latest scientific researches show that our body’s daily cycle is controlled largely by the paracrine and endocrine systems.  With such a complicated synchronized system consisting of glands and hormones, it is easy to assume that if one element is malfunctioning, then the whole sleep-wake cycle can cause havoc leading to constant disrupted sleep cycle and  unsuccessfully achievement of deep sleep.  In addition to stimulating the pineal gland, it is not uncommon or unthinkable  for reishi to also play a role in regulating or repair any other elements involved in our body daily cycle.  A fundamental characteristic of red reishi is its ability to work on our overall metabolism.  Reishi nourishes our body with high antioxidant compounds, polysaccharides to fight against elements foreign to our organism, and triterpenoids to provide anti-inflammatory effect on our tissues.
David M., from San Mateo CA, has been purchasing our products exclusively to control his sleep disorder.  He loves reishi not only because he can now naturally fall asleep and stay asleep for the night, but he also wakes up with no side effects like the way he experienced with prescription sleeping pills.  He also praises the main properties of reishi giving him immunity and energy boost.
Have you experienced better sleep when taking reishi as a nice complementary benefit or exclusively dealing with sleep disorders like David?

    It seems that reishi is working on our overall metabolism including the gland responsible for the release of melatonin to your bloodstream in order to feel sleepy, fall asleep and stay asleep. The pineal gland is essentially triggered by several factors and when you think of orchestrating all these causes and effects in our body, we can safely conclude that there is an overall response while consuming reishi thus validating claims that reishi really works on a bigger scale of our metabolism.

    I agree that I sleep better since I started taking reishi. In fact, my wife is saying that I don’t snore that much anymore. Probably due to better sleep. This is definitely a nice side benefit from reishi as I primarily take it for boosting my immune system.
