The importance of having a well-functioning and healthy immune system has become increasingly obvious in recent times.
Sadly, everyone seems to have a different answer as to how you should go about strengthening your immune system. When you go to your local health and wellness shop, you might see twenty or thirty products that tout their “immune boosting” powers. An Amazon search reveals thousands of results.
Well, we’re here to tell you about an effective and ancient remedy that has been in use for over two thousand years: the red reishi mushroom.
The red reishi mushroom has been known in Asia for centuries as an effective herbal remedy for those that are elderly or ill. These mushrooms have long been known as the “immortality herb” or “long life herb.” It has gone by many names, including Ganoderma, Lingzhi, or Ling Chi.
Red reishi has been rated as the top medicinal herb used in traditional Chinese medicine, with ginseng in second place. Some sources even report that at one point, it was traded for its weight in gold and was only available to emperors.
Because this incredible mushroom is known to be:
This astonishing and unique mushroom contains over 200 bio-active ingredients and unique compounds that are among the most biologically active available from any plant in the world. 
Let’s discuss two of the most potent and important and almost “magical ingredients” in red reishi mushrooms:
Beta-glucans are specialized forms of polysaccharides – complex sugar molecules that have unique effects on human physiology. They are often found in bacteria, fungi, yeasts, and other plants. 
The beta-glucans that occur naturally in red reishi mushrooms are known to:
Triterpenes are another of the “magic” ingredients in red reishi mushrooms.
Chemically speaking, they are unsaturated hydrocarbons made up of six isoprene units.
In normal-person speak, they are bio-active and natural molecules that offer astonishing benefits for the human body.
The three most well-known groups of triterpenes in red reishi include ganoderic acids, lucidernic acids, and sterols. Some of these natural molecules are precursors to steroids and provide an all-natural alternative to medicinal steroids.
Triterpenes have been shown to:
While there are many herbal remedies and mushrooms that may have health benefits, only one has earned the title “The King of Fungus” – the red reishi mushroom.
How did this rare mushroom earn such a moniker?
Because the wide range of health benefits available through proper use of this mushroom are simply astounding.
Some of the additional health benefits of red reishi mushroom include:
The Red Reishi mushroom is very rare in nature but has become more accessible in recent times as method of cultivating it in a controlled environment has been developed.
If you try to eat the mushroom itself, you might find yourself offended by its bitter and woody taste.
Thankfully, the nutritional benefits are available in red reishi extracts that exist in various teas, supplements, and oils.

Growth Hormone (GH or HGH) is one of the most important hormones in regard to muscle gain and fat loss for men and women:
It increases muscle mass, increases protein synthesis, strengthens bone, internally makes your metabolism “younger,” and is, to a large degree, “anti-aging” in its effects. And it does this in large part by stimulating the uptake of amino acids in the cells.
In fact, GH is so closely tied to amino acids, that not only does GH stimulate the uptake of aminos, but taking aminos stimulates the release of GH to get the cells to take in the aminos.
Intermittent fasting has become increasingly popular over the last couple of decades, and many people are curious whether it is right for them.
Those who believe they have a “slow” metabolism are especially concerned that any form of fasting might further slow the metabolism, leaving them feeling groggy or less energetic, not to mention hungry.
Surprisingly, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Intermittent fasting can improve your metabolism while helping you lose weight, along with a slew of other health benefits.
So-called “energy drinks” litter the shelves in health food stores and grocery stores. Each brand promises to deliver the energy boost you need for workouts or just to make it through the day.
The sad truth is that most commercial drinks and drink powders come with a steep price to your health.
Most of the popular brands contain stimulants such as caffeine and high levels of sugar. They make you feel jittery and wired, with a crash that comes soon after.
