The effect of Ganoderma in maintaining blood sugar levels
Ganoderma lucidum has been shown to significantly reduce blood sugar levels, and may cause 1 to 4 times the ability of pancreatic beta cells to stimulate insulin secretion.
The pancreas is a organ with many functions. It is involved in the production of enzymes and other hormones necessary for the digestive system. The pancreatic beta cells function to produce insulin, a hormone that brings glucose into the cells.
Red Lucid Ganoderma has been shown to reduce blood glucose levels while enhancing insulin secretion by the cells, without causing any side effects to other organs. .

Effects of Ganoderma in promoting insulin secretion
The effect of Lingzhi in reducing blood sugar and increasing pancreatic insulin secretion, as polysaccharides increase the ability of pancreatic calcium to absorb calcium, resulting in the production or secretion of insulin hormones. . This demonstrates that the penetration of calcium into pancreatic beta cells causes the production of hormones.

Preventing the degeneration of beta cells
Ganoderma has a blocking effect damage caused by alloxan to pancreatic beta-cells, the cause of diabetes.
Alloxan is a toxic compound, causing the bleaching of some proteins. It is closely related to type 1 diabetes due to the pancreas's ability to destroy insulin-producing cells.
Ganoderma works protects pancreatic beta cells from free radicals, created from Alloxan compounds by neutralizing them with polysaccharides and antioxidants of Lingzhi.

Clinical research for type 2 diabetes patients
TTo focus on researching and evaluating the safety efficacy of Polysaccharide extracts in red Lingzhi mushroom, a group of 71 patients with type 2 diabetes were treated. Half of these groups used red Lingzhi extracts. The other half took placebo for 14 weeks. After 14 weeks, all of them were noted signs of change.
After 14 weeks, the group treated with reishi mushroom extracts showed a significant decrease in glycosylated hemoglobin of the A1c line, a significant decrease in plasma glucose levels, while the groups treated with placebo did not The change is even slightly increased in all test parameters.

Red Lucid Ganoderma and complications of diabetes
Ganoderma prevents kidney complications
Ganoderma works prevent and delay the progression of kidney failure and its complications in mouse experiments. Ganoderma helps reduce creatinine serum and urea nitrogen concentration in the blood. These are the two effects that have been drawn in numerous rat studies on the effects of Ganoderma on kidney function, blood sugar and triglycerides in the blood.

Protect eyes and prevent neurological complications
High blood glucose levels are converted to sorbitol by the enzyme Aldose. Sorbitol is a form of sugar that the body cannot use, and it contains a lot of water. When sorbitol is accumulated in the body, it causes edema.
Sorbitol causes cataracts and retinal damage in the eye. In other parts of the body, sorbitol causes neurological damage and interferes with blood flow.
Ganoderma works blocking the enzyme Aldose does not allow it to convert glucose into sorbitol on the eye cells of diabetic mice. In addition, this study showed that Ganoderma can inhibit the accumulation of glucose and glucose byproducts such as sorbitol in eye cells, erythrocytes, and peripheral nerves of diabetic mice. The above results show that Ganoderma lucidum includes components that have the ability to treat diabetes and inhibit complications of diabetes.
