Ganoderma to fight diabetes

Diabetes can cause serious heart diseases and strokes

Definition of diabetes

Diabetes is a well-known disease in which blood glucose (sugar) levels are very high.

Glucose depends on our diet. And its role is to enter the cells to supply them with energy. This is done through insulin.

There are two types of diabetes:

  • In type 1 diabetes, our body does not produce insulin.
  • In type 2 diabetes, our body does not produce insulin correctly.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common.

Without insulin, glucose stays in the blood and does not provide energy. When it remains a long time in the blood it can cause damage to the kidneys, eyes, even nerve tissues. But this is the slightest thing that can happen. Diabetes can cause serious diseases.

    Scientific studies.

    After different studies with animals and humans, it has been shown that the consumption of Ganoderma lucidum helps to reduce blood sugar levels and to increase the formation of insulin in the pancreas [1].

    And not only that but it also protects the kidney and the circulatory system from possible damage caused by the diabetes disease.

    There is a conclusive study conducted with humans, 71 patients older than 18 years with type 2 diabetes mellitus who were treated for 12 weeks with Ganoderma. After this period it was found that this fungus is an effective and safe treatment in the reduction of blood glucose concentrations.

    This hopeful fact places Ganoderma in a superfood with natural resources capable of treating diseases that, as some academic articles show, are one of the leading causes of death in the world. Besides, with a tendency to show up more and more in younger people [2].

    Other studies carried out with mice in laboratories, state that the extracts of Ganoderma lucidum increase insulin in the blood and decrease glucose in diabetics, and furthermore protect the aorta and myocardial artery of these patients [3].

    The results of these and many other investigations leave a great open path towards the cure of serious diseases with natural foods.

    Each time, there are more clinical trials, studies and researches that we find to evaluate and verify the extent of the benefits of this fungus, as shock treatment and pharmacological action, as Ganoderma lucidum has already been recognized as an alternative adjuvant [4] in the treatment of:

    • Hepatitis
    • Diabetes
    • Carcinoma
    • Leukemia
