Research on NK cell activity of Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum)
Posted on May 14 2022
Our company Hokkaido Reishi Co., Ltd. in collaboration with Hokkaido University and Hokkaido University of Information Sciences has completed a clinical trial on immune function (NK cell activity) using the Oukou Deer Horn Reishi capsules in May 2022.
The study showed that NK cell activity tended to increase after 4 weeks and 12 weeks of taking Reishi. "The innate immune system, which shows the function of NK cells, is important in suppressing the onset of viral infections and cancer, and we expect that Deer Horn Reishi will prove useful in the future," according to the study. The research results have been submitted for publication in the journal "Pharmacology and Therapeutics. In addition to applying for "Healthy Do," Hokkaido's unique food functionality labeling system, our company plan to file a notification for functional food labeling.
