The mechanisms of kidney diseases, such as acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD), have been intensively studied. Nonetheless, the morbidity and mortality of AKI and CKD increased in recent years. Recently, natural products have been increasingly recognized as an alternative source for treating renal diseases on account of the conventional experience and the multi-target characteristics. Ganoderma lucidum (G. lucidum, Lingzhi) has been used for centuries as nutraceuticals and alternative medicine to improve health and to treat numerous diseases. Benefiting from various biological activities, such as anti-oxidation, anti-inflammation, anti-tumor growth and metastasis, etc., G. lucidum has been proved to exhibit significant role in preventing and treating various kidney diseases. In this chapter, we review certain researches and provide comprehensive insights into the renoprotective effects of G. lucidum.
