Abstract

Ganoderma lucidem, a widely distributed mushroom in Europe, America, Africa, and Asia has been greatly valued in China, Korea, and Japan as a traditional medicine. It has been reported that Ganoderma has both a hypotensive effect through the inhibition of an angiotensin converting enzyme, and an antiallergic effect through the inhibition of mast cells. It also inhibits lipid peroxidation and promotes the immune function.
