Surprising Facts About Lingzhi & The Immune System

What is Lingzhi?

It is a species of fungus that has been extensively studied and is well-known for two potent ingredients, Triterpenes and Polysacharrides, which have great therapeutic qualities.

What is Triterpenes?

Triterpenes are chemical compounds that have anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, and anticancer properties. It can also regulate the immune system.

What is Polysacharrides?

Polysacharrides is another type of chemical compound. Similar to Triterpenes, it possesses antitumor and immune-regulating properties.

Why is Lingzhi a Fungus?

A plant has both male and female components and reproduces through producing flowers and fruits. Lingzhi, on the other hand, lacks both male and female parts and is incapable of producing flowers or fruits. Instead, it reproduces by releasing its spores into the environment. As a result, it is a fungus.

How Do I Select a High-Quality Lingzhi?

Find out where the company grows the Lingzhi (ideally in controlled wild conditions), how long it takes to harvest them (ideally about 8-10 months), and how the firm processes the harvest (full transparency will be the best).

What Does It Mean When You Say Lingzhi “Regulates” My Immune System?

Many people believed that Lingzhi was simply good for boosting the immune system. This is an incorrect assumption. Instead, it modulates our immune system based on our body’s conditions. For example, if you have a weak immune system, it strengthens it.

On the other hand, if you have an overactive strong immune system that leads to disorders such as autoimmunity, Lingzhi will weaken it to the equilibrium state (which is the body’s natural working condition).

Why Lingzhi Doesn’t Have the Best Immune Regulating Properties?

It is a common misconception that the fruiting body of Lingzhi is the best on the market right now. That is not the case. In fact, the spores responsible for reproduction have a larger percentage of Triterpenes and Polysaccharides than the fruiting body, making it more effective.

Why Lingzhi Spores Is Still Not The Best?

Lingzhi spores have two layers of hard shells covering them. When people consume them, majority of them were indigestible (due to the hard shells) and were passed out as black spots inside their stools.

As such, scientists developed chemical and physical methods to break down the shells. Chemical approaches were frowned upon because they generate new by-products and reduce the effectiveness of the active ingredients. Because of this reason, scientists at ZK conducted an extensive research and developed a technique that effectively breaks down shells using a constant room temperature technology, effectively retaining the effective ingredients (Triterpenes and Polysachharides) within the product. Shell-broken Lingzhi spores were produced as a result and widely used.

How to Find Shell-broken Lingzhi spores?

Shell-broken Lingzhi spores from Japan, China, and Singapore are widely available in Singapore. You can buy them in either physical or online stores, whichever is more convenient for you.

However, don’t be fooled by the country of origin. Country of origin merely gives the branding association effect (for example, if you had one product from China and one product from Japan, which would you choose? You would undoubtedly select the Japan product). It doesn’t mean one is better than the other just because it’s from a certain country. Instead, take the time to do your own research using what was mentioned earlier – “How Do I Choose A Quality Lingzhi?”
