Effect Increase
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 2-4 Weeks
Number of Subjects 40
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Trained, Average
Notes for this study:
28 days supplementation of 2,500-5,000mg Reishi (water soluble polysaccharides) in football players subject to high altitude sleeping conditions (training at sea level) noted that only the higher dose was able to stimulate CD3+ T-cells above control levels while both attenuated the changes in the CD4:CD8 ratio (training reduced CD4 relative to CD8, and reishi attenuated this change).
