Alkalize With Ganoderma

Ganoderma or Reishi as it is often called is a medicinal mushroom that was originally native to china. It is incredibly powerful alkalizer and can balance the PH levels in your blood in a matter of weeks from when you start taking it consistently.

**Why is Alkalizing and specifically Ganoderma important?

We all have been there before someone tells you a supplement like ganoderma is going to improve your health. But is there science behind it or is it like the famous tic-tac placebo experiment.

Ganoderma is the single most studied herbal remedy in history with hundreds upon hundreds of clinical trials and scientific studies performed on everything from lab rats to double blinds with humans. This traditional chinese remedy is one that has been proven over the long run (it has a 5000 year history in chinese medicine).
As for the alkalizing effect, many studies have found that it is when your blood leaves it's optimal PH range (7.35 - 7.45). That is the beginning source of almost all medical ailments from diabetes to cancer.

Our modern diet that is heavy on sugar and fat supports an alkaline free roller coaster ride for your blood pressure and a super unhealthy for your body. A lot of people recommend going raw to cure this, but that is insane to try and do.

For me personally, I take my Ganoderma Lucidum in the morning and relax knowing I am taking care of my health. I eat healthy regardless but if I want a little desert, I don't need to sweat it.

Ganoderma Lucidum Cured My Anxiety

A friend of mine first introduced me to Ganoderma Lucidum. It was an event that changed my life for the better. I was anxiously waiting for a call back from a job interview I had just taken. I knew I had the job on lockdown the interview was great, and they told me they would be in touch shortly as I left. It didn't stop the anxiety, one of those moments you know you should be happy but instead your anxiously rubbing your hands together.

That is when my friend Steve introduced me to Ganoderma Lucidum.

I honestly didn't believe him at all it didn't make sense that there would be a plant I could take that might actually relieve anxiety and strengthen my immune system, and it wasn't even expensive. I chalked it up to a placebo he was experiencing but then I got to thinking...
If this was a placebo would it work for me and if it wasn't a placebo what happen to me if I tried this mysterious Ganoderma mushroom. I took the bait and bought myself a small sample.

When the package arrived I was so excited opening it, I took my first try of it expecting it to be some delicious flavor like truffle oil or something. It was far from tasty, the only way I can describe it is that Ganoderma Lucidum tastes like medicine. I also got not great relief from anxiety energy or focus that Steve had promised me I felt scammed, but I spent the money on it, so I kept taking it.

One week later I was over it, I felt conned. I called to return it, and the man on the phone asked me a few questions about how I was feeling and said he would be happy to take it back all his customers ordered again and again. I decided not to return it but stopped taking it anyway.

The second day after I stopped my normal anxiety levels returned. I was shocked the effect had snuck up on me. I realized Ganoderma wasn't something that stimulated you; it was something that protected me from being stimulated by stress. It was like an anti-anxiety medication you took to prevent anxiety not to treat it.

I have been taking it ever since that day. All I can say is that I have never felt better and knowing that I am supporting my health while preventing anxiety, leaves me with a real sense of security.

If you want more information on Ganoderma, I found this website here super helpful as far as the science behind the mushroom.
