What is thrombosis?

Circulating blood has the capacity to clot. Deep vein thrombosis occurs when a blood clot (thrombus) forms in one or more deep veins of the body, usually this occurs in the lower area of the body. This condition can cause pain or swelling in the legs, but may be also present without any visible symptoms.

Thrombosis can appear in conditions where blood flow is slow or irregular. If you do not move for a long time, for example, after surgery, an accident, or when you are confined to a bed, these situation can increase the likelihood of this condition.

Deep vein thrombosis is a serious condition because blood clots that occur in the veins can break loose, travel through the bloodstream, lodge in the lungs, and thereby impede blood flow (pulmonary embolism).

¿Qué hongos medicinales tienen propiedades útiles en la trombosis?


El Reishi tiene acción antiinflamatoria, antiagregante y fluidificadora

El extracto de Reishi tiene propiedades muy indicadas para esta situación, ya que por un lado se trata de un hongo que contiene triterpenos de acción antiinflamatoria y, por otro, ácido ganodérico, que tiene acción antiagregante y fluidificadora de la sangre.

Además, debido a su alto contenido en germanio, el Reishi potencia la oxigenación de la sangre, permitiendo una mejor nutrición a nivel de las mitocondrias del tejido capilar.
