How can Tonic Medicine contribute to a healthy and beautiful life: Expert advice and suggestions in the field.

During the keynote report, Professor Lin Zhibin from Peking University Health Science Center, who has been studying Reishi for more than 50 years, stated that the exploration of the pharmacology of traditional Chinese medicine, especially tonic medicine, is best exemplified by Reishi. Pharmacological research has confirmed that Reishi and its active ingredients improve immune function disorders; resist oxidative stress damage; protect important organs and tissues such as the heart, brain, liver, kidney, and skin; regulate aging-related genes, and delay the aging process. The modern research on the anti-aging effects of Reishi interprets the statement in “Shennong’s Herbal Classic” about the six types of Reishi mushrooms: “Long-term consumption makes the body light and not old, and prolongs life.”

Researcher Du Guanhua from the Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, introduced the relationship between traditional medicine, tonic medicine, and food in his keynote report. He stated that the regulation of sub-health requires the synergistic effect of food and medicine, aiming to achieve the dual effects of “preventing external pathogens from invading” and “internal prevention of internal function degeneration”. This includes medicinal and edible substances such as Codonopsis and Ganoderma, and the extended traditional Chinese medicine compound prescriptions would be a good solution.
