Ganoderma lucidum (G. lucidum), commonly referred to as Lingzhi in China, is a fungus which has been widely used through the centuries for the general promotion of health and longevity in Asian countries. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2000 years.
It has been known to have numerous pharmacological effects including immuno-modulating, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, anti-oxidative and radicalscavenging, and anti-aging effects because G. lucidum contains various kinds of chemical substances. The main two bioactive components of G. lucidum can be broadly grouped into triterpenes and polysaccharides.
It has been reported that the polysaccharides from G. lucidum possess many interesting biological activities, for instance anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, anti-herpetic and anti-oxidation activity, effects against free radicals and reduce cell damage caused by mutagens.
Triterpenes are one of the possible pharmaceutically active compounds contributing to the medicinal activities of G. lucidum. They are primarily isolated from the spores of G. lucidum and have shown remarkable pharmacological and therapeutic activities on multiple human diseases including cancer
