5 Reasons Why Reishi Mushrooms

Are Great for Your Pets

Dogs and cats aren’t just pets, they are part of the family. If you’re anything like me, you’d do just about anything under the sun to make sure they are healthy and happy. Ever wonder if there are any supplements out there that can support your fur baby’s health and longevity? Great news! Medicinal mushrooms offer up a treasure trove of benefits, not just for you, but for your pets too. Here are five ways that reishi mushrooms can help keep your lovable pup or cuddly kitten on the path of wellness.

1. Fend Off Cancer

China and Japan have used reishi mushrooms to treat cancer for centuries. According to a study in Current Pharmaceutical Biotechnology , the triterpene compounds found in reishi mushrooms have numerous medicinal benefits, including anti-cancer properties. These medicinal mushrooms also contain beta glucans—complex sugars known to influence the immune system.


There is some evidence to suggest that reishi can stop cancer growth and shrink tumours. Additionally, research has demonstrated reishi’s ability to help prevent secondary cancer and decrease side effects from chemo or radiation.

2. Support Your Pet’s Liver Health

Just like in humans, a healthy liver is vital to the wellbeing of your pet. Fortunately, this miracle mushroom is rich in antioxidants that fortify, detoxify, and protect the liver against free radicals that can slow down proper function. Taking reishi can bolster the liver, regenerate liver cells, and improve liver detoxification. In research performed on rats, reishi was shown to reverse liver fibrosis.

3. Manage Diabetes

If your pet is struggling with diabetes, reishi may be able to help. These mushrooms have been shown to help manage diabetes. Researchers also found that these mushrooms can prevent or delay diabetes-related kidney problems.


Additionally, a common side effect of diabetes is that wounds can take longer to heal. Because reishi is rich in antioxidants, it may even help speed wound healing.

4. Strengthen Heart Health

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, reishi helps calm the nervous system and is a powerful cardiovascular tonic. Reishi increases the amount of blood delivered to the heart and improves its oxygen delivery. As a result, blood flows more easily and the heart isn’t put under as much stress. Reishi has also been found to lower blood pressure and alleviate heart arrhythmia.

5. Slow Aging

We all want to keep our furry friends with us for as long as possible, and reishi may help slow down the aging process.
In a mouse study, the bioactive components in reishi were found to 
prolong mouse lives and reduce their mortality risks. Reishi may also delay the gradual decline of immunity that occurs with age.


This supplement’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties can help prevent and even keep cognitive decline at bay. Furthermore, it can ease arthritic issues associated with aging joints.

It may sound impossible that a fungus can have this many effects, but many of reishi’s health benefits come from the fact that it is an adaptogenic herb. Adaptogens are natural substances that help the body adapt to stressors, normalizing the body’s processes and bringing it back to balance.

 

If you’re looking to add reishi to your pet’s health regime, speak to a holistic veterinarian for dosing specifics.

赤靈芝對寵物的5大益處

狗和貓不僅是寵物,也是家庭成員之一。假如你跟我一樣愛護寵物,一定會想盡辦法令牠們健康快樂。你有否想過寵物也有保健品,可讓牠們更健康長壽?答案是有的!靈芝不但可以為你的身體帶來好處,也可以照顧好寵物的健康。以下是靈芝有效提升貓狗健康的五大特點:。

1. 抵禦癌症

中國和日本已經有長達幾百年服食靈芝治療癌症的歷史,根據醫學期刊《Current Pharmaceutical Biotechnology》的研究報告指出,靈芝中蘊藏的三萜化合物有多種藥用功效,包括對抗癌症。另外,靈芝亦含有豐富的β-葡聚醣,有助增強免疫力。


此外,有證據顯示靈芝可以抑制癌細胞增長,令腫瘤變小。另外,研究也證明靈芝有效預防繼發性癌症,並且減低接受化療或放射性治療時產生的副作用。

2. 增強寵物的肝臟健康

寵物和人類一樣,肝臟健康對身體十分重要。靈芝含有豐富的抗氧化劑,有效增強肝臟的排毒能力,並保護肝臟免受自由基的侵害,防止肝功能下降。服用靈芝可幫助提升肝臟健康、促進肝細胞再生並改善肝臟的排毒功能。一項在老鼠身上進行的實驗也證實,靈芝能夠逆轉肝硬化。

3. 控制糖尿病

如果你的寵物患有糖尿病,也很適合服用靈芝。有證據顯示靈芝有助控制糖尿病,研究人員更發現靈芝可以預防或延遲因糖尿病而引致的腎功能障礙各種腎病。
 

4. 增強心臟健康

根據傳統中醫藥理論,靈芝有效穩定神經系統以及改善心血管健康。靈芝能促進血液流向心臟,從而提高身體中的氧氣運送量。當血液流動暢順時,心臟所承受的壓力就會隨之減少。此外,還有研究指出靈芝可以有助調節血壓以及緩解心律不整的狀況。

5. 延遲衰老

靈芝擁有延緩衰老的功效,讓我們能夠與寵物有更多的相處時間,互相陪伴。
一項在老鼠身上進行的研究顯示,靈芝中的生物活性成份可以延長老鼠的壽命以及降低死亡率。靈芝同時可以延遲因年紀漸長而出現的免疫力衰退情況。


靈芝的抗炎和抗氧化功效可以預防甚至減低腦退化,並能舒緩關節老化而出現的炎症。
你可能會覺得靈芝只是一種菇菌,為甚麼可以有這麼多功效。其實,這源於靈芝是一種天然的適應原,能幫助身體應對各種壓力源,並將身體各種機能調節到正常狀態。


如果你計劃讓寵物服用靈芝,請向你的獸醫查詢適當的服用劑量。
