Hot (and cold) coffee and teas are staples in many households, which is a good thing given the latest research. Coffee, for example, may reduce the risk of:
- Parkinson’s, dementia and Alzheimer’s
- Gallstones, gall bladder disease, cirrhosis of the liver
- Type 2 diabetes, kidney disease, gout
- Liver and oral cancer
Tea’s big claim to fame is antioxidants, or flavonoids, which can curb “free radicals” that contribute to cancer, heart disease and clogged arteries. Those are reasons enough to fill your tea or coffee cup to the rim, but you could add and even larger healthy “punch” to your tea or coffee by adding ganoderma, also known as reishi, a hard mushroom known to promote health and longevity in traditional Chinese medicine.
Ganoderma has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels and ease allergyrelated inflammation. It has also been used to treat problems like high blood pressure, fatigue, diabetes, altitude sickness and infections. As with all herbal and alternative remedy options, consult your health practitioner before using ganoderma. The reishi mushroom can affect blood clotting, for example, so people with bleeding-related conditions or taking anticoagulant or antiplatelet medications or blood-thinners should avoid ganoderma.
SereniGy offers a line of products that include ganoderma, including coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
