Treasured by Emperors for centuries, recently 'discovered' by the West
For thousands of years, Ganoderma lucidum has been recognized by Asian medicine as the highest ranked of all herbs. The Chinese name for Ganoderma, Lingzhi, means “spiritual potency,” while the Japanese name, Reishi, can be translated as the “King of Herbs.”
Dr. Shi-Jean Lee — the most renowned doctor of the Ming Dynasty — strongly endorsed the effectiveness of Ganoderma in his famous book Great Pharmacopoeia [Ban Chao Gang Moo]. In it, he wrote that “long-term taking of Ganoderma will build a strong, healthy body and assure a long life.”
Ganoderma are a fantastic-looking mushroom. These mushrooms are unique in that they grow on wood, mostly out of large trees (living or dead) in forests in the more tropical regions of Asia. Their long brown stems and orange-colored caps make them a spectacular sight, but in the wild they can be hard to see because they thrive in such heavily forested areas. It is hard to find, maybe 1 or 2 exist per 1,000 trees.
The Ganoderma lucidium variety that produces the valuable spores so prized in Chinese herbal medicine is unique in that it grows in wooden trees or logs. But some companies harvest their Ganoderma using plastic bags, which means the precious spores cannot effectively propagate, which makes plastic bag-harvested Ganoderma much less potent. We recommend you only use certified organic, log grown Ganoderma.
We have been amazed at the huge variety of health cases that have responded to Ganoderma Lucidum. This is why the drug companies are trying to isolate and replicate important components of the mushroom but the problem with that is that they don't work as well as the mushroom itself, you are better of just using the original source.
The general benefits are:
1: Promotes normal immune function
2: Supports stamina and endurance
3. Supports memory and focus
4. Promotes a healthy digestive system
5. May help support and protect liver function
6. Rich in fibres minerals and other nutrients
Plus many more aspects that you can see some of in the video above.
We recommend the best certified organic Ganoderma Lucidum on the world market. It has an over 99% crack rate for the spores using a patented (non chemical) process. This is extraordinary as, using another patented technology, the crack rates of other sources achieves about a 30% crack rate. This Ganoderma is grown on 30 year old maple logs in a pristine forestry zone.
