Throughout history in holistic medicine, reishi mushrooms have been considered adaptogenic herbs. This means they help your body deal with the negative effects of stress, such as increased inflammation, depleted energy levels, damaged blood vessels and various types of hormonal imbalances.

The use of the reishi mushroom was first recorded over 2,000 years ago. It was frequently referred to as the “Mushroom of Immortality” in ancient texts. Around 200–250 C.E., the “Divine Farmer’s Classic of Pharmaceutics” categorized different varieties of mushrooms based on which part of the body they benefited.

The liver is the largest organ in the human body and it is located in the upper right-hand portion of the abdominal cavity, beneath the diaphragm, and on top of the stomach, right kidney, and intestines. The liver is one of the most active organs, producing important cholesterol, filtering toxins from the blood stream (purifying blood), producing bile to break down fats, storing sugars, metabolizing vitamins and minerals and proteins, regulation of hormones, stores various nutrients, especially A, D, B12 and iron, for release as needed, converts lactic acid from a toxic waste to an important storage fuel, removes some fat-soluble toxins from the body by first dissolving them in bile salts, then dumping the bile and toxin mixture into the intestine for eventual excretion.

The liver plays a central role in transforming and clearing chemicals and is susceptible to the toxicity from these agents. Certain medicinal agents, when taken in overdoses and sometimes even when introduced within therapeutic ranges, may injure the organ.

In the Western world, drug‒induced liver injury is a major health care problem and accounts for the majority of acute liver failure cases. The pathophysiological mechanisms of  chemical-driven liver damage are mostly associated with the metabolic conversion of xenobiotics into reactive oxygen species (ROS), which induce oxidative stress and damage the cellular macromolecules. Oxidative stress has recently been recognized as a key factor in the pathophysiological changes observed in a wide range of liver diseases, such as subclinical hepatitis without jaundice, inflammatory necrotic hepatitis, liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Better understanding the role of oxidative stress in these liver disorders may lead to the appropriate use of antioxidants as a therapeutic approach for liver diseases. Natural antioxidant products, especially phytochemicals, have gained popularity worldwide due to their efficacy and safety. They are increasingly being used to treat various pathological liver conditions and nearly half of the agents used in liver therapy today are either natural products or their derivatives.<--break->
