What is it about?

Chronic oxidative stress and inflammatory response are the common etiology of neuro-aging. This article uses Ganoderma tsugae to reduce oxidative stress and inflammatory response, further improving the changes in the aging dendrite patterns of cortical nerve cells and improving cognitive function.

Why is it important?

This study has two highlights: the first of which is that the Ganoderma tsugae we use is the best antioxidant in Red Reishi, a traditional Chinese medicine, and there is currently no research to apply it to the nervous system; Second, this article is the first literature to explore the condition in which Reishi can effectively improve the neuronal dendrite morphology of the cortex due against aging.


We hope this article could be a start using Lingzhi to help improve the quality of life of older adults.
