"As an entrepreneur most of my life I have been involved in several different types of businesses, including several network marketing businesses.

Ganoderma contains nutrients can help the human body to maintain its health, or improve its level of health if there are problems.
Ganoderma is aimed to work on body but not on the disease. Promoting your natural immune system helps in balancing the body and in turn treats itself for a wide range of health problems. Ganoderma promotes general good health and vitality. It also has a harmonising effect on the body and helps maintain body balance.
Antioxidants neutralize the oxidant effect of free radicals of normal cellular respiration and metabolism. Ganoderma is one of the most potent anti oxidants at 23,500 I.U’s
Ganoderma maintains and improves general Well-being.
Ganoderma lucidum is the scientific name for a species of red mushroom that once grew in the wild and is now being cultivated at special farms, in pristine growing conditions. Ganoderma contains more than 200 active elements that are known to improve health. Here are a few that modern science is currently focusing on:
Strengthen the body’s immune system
Balance blood sugar level and improves pancreatic functions
Protect against degeneration of skin cells and eliminates dead surface cells which improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of aging
Controls destruction of healthy cells throughout the body
Eliminates accumulated toxins
Increases oxygen in the blood system
Reduces fatigue and increases vitality
Strengthens the immune system
Increases the metabolism
Contains an abundance of anti-oxidants that control or inhibit damaging free radicals. Free radicals are a major cause of cell degeneration, cancer and aging.
Assists our body’s natural ability to fight cancer cells
Reduces cholesterol and body fat
Helps to unclog arteries plugged with fatty deposits, and supports liver function

Research has demonstrated that Ganoderma Lucidum has several different active constituents. One group of active constituents is the polysaccharides. The various types of polysaccharides found in Ganoderma Lucidum have demonstrated immune-enhancing properties. This includes enhancement of several important interleukins. Another major class of compounds is the triterpenes. These compounds have been reported to have adaptogenic, anti-hypertensive, and anti-allergy effects.
Ganoderma Lucidum has been shown in some studies to inhibit platelet aggregation and reduce blood pressure. In studies of people with hypertension, researchers found blood pressure was significantly reduced over two-weeks’ time with reishi supplementation.
Ganoderma Lucidum is commonly prescribed by practitioners for long-term immune system support. In studies involving patients with advanced tumours, the patients were given Ganoderma Lucidum for thirty days. Researchers found a marked immune-modulating effect as demonstrated by an increase in T Lymphocytes and decreased CD8 counts. Patients also reported reduced side effects due to chemotherapy or radiation as well as post operation recovery.
Blood Sugar Balance
Studies have shown Ganoderma Lucidum to have a blood sugar lowering effect. Much of this activity appears to be due to polysaccharides known as Ganoderans A, B, and C.
It appears there are three main mechanisms behind this hypoglycaemic effect. This includes Ganoderma Lucidum’s ability to elevate plasma insulin levels, to enhance peripheral tissue utilization of glucose, and to enhance liver metabolism of glucose.
Studies have shown that hot-water extracts of Ganoderma Lucidum have anti-inflammatory effects. One study found that 50 milligrams of reishi powder had comparable effects to 5 milligrams of hydrocortisone.
Ganoderma Lucidum is commonly used for its hepatoprotective (liver protective) action. One study of patients with hepatitis B and elevated liver enzymes (SGOT/SGPT) and bilirubin were given reishi for three months. Significant reduction in SGOT and SGPT were noticed within one month. After three months all values were within normal range.
One of the unique uses of Ganoderma Lucidum is for altitude sickness. Reishi appears to reduce altitude sickness by oxygenating the blood. This benefit was studied in Asian mountain climbers that ascended mountains as high as 17,000 feet with minimal reaction.
Now you can enjoy the benefits of healthy coffee that has been enriched with Ganoderma lucidum. For thousands of years, Ganoderma Lucidum has been highly regarded by the Chinese as the “Miraculous King of Herbs.” Finally you, too, can benefit from the miracle of Ganoderma. You do not have to take pills, supplements, or potions every day to receive important nutrients. You don’t have to make extreme lifestyle changes to improve your health.
One of the most detestable diseases in our society is Alzheimer’s Disease. It ravages a sufferer’s memory and creates havoc within a family that impacts them for many years. According to one article in Chinese Medicine News, “Lingzhi Slows Progress of Alzheimer’s”, it seems that ganoderma lucidum offers hope for the prevention and/or delay of Alzheimer’s Disease. Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by the excessive deposit of the β-amyloid peptide (β-AP) in the central nervous system. Researchers at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) have found that ganoderma lucidum produces an antibody against the β-amyloid peptide (β-AP) in the central nervous system:
“Taken together, the results prove a hypothesis that anti-aging lingzhi can prevent harmful effects of the exterminating toxin Aβ in Alzheimer’s disease.
“As a side note, an earlier research done by the same group of researchers at HKU found that anther anti-aging Chinese medicine gou qi (枸杞, Lycium barbarum) could also work against β-amyloid peptide neurotoxicity in Alzheimer’s disease.
“This group of researchers seem to believe that studies on anti-aging herbal medicines like lingzhi and gou qi may open a new therapeutic window for the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease.”
William Stavinoha of the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio in his “Ganoderma Lucidum as an Anti-inflammatory Agent” suggests that the anti-inflammatory properties of ganoderma lucidum is another reason for its promise in the treatment of Alzheimer’s:
“Of great interest has been the recent reports from the United States indicating a possible central role for inflammation in the development of such diverse diseases as Alzheimers Disease and Cardiovascular disease. This research has the possibility of linking some of the historical uses of Ganoderma in promoting longevity with contemporary Western scientific theory. The provocative connections are:
(1) Ganoderma was used to prevent memory loss in old age
(2) Ganoderma is anti-inflammatory,
(3) inflammation is involved in the development of Alzheimers Disease
(4) Alzheimers disease appears to be ameliorated by chronic antiinflammatory use.”
If Alzheimer’s Disease is in your family’s health history, regular drinking of our products may delay or prevent the disease!
Ganoderma and weight Loss – How can Ganoderma help you lose weight?
Herbal supplements and alternative medicine are commonly used as a means to lose weight. The reishi mushroom, or ganoderma herb, is an example of such an herbal supplement. This supplement is available for purchase in most supermarkets or health food stores in the form of pills, powders, or liquid extract. Speak to your doctor for more information on the benefits and/or risk factors of using ganoderma.
According to MushroomExpert.com, ganoderma lucidum derives from Asian cultures and is red, bright yellow, and white in color. This fungus can differ in size and usually develops in heavily-wooded areas. There are many different species of ganoderma mushrooms, including the parasitic fungus Ganoderma tsugae, which is nearly identical in appearance to the lucidum species. As an herbal supplement, ganoderma has been traditionally used for a variety of different medical treatments, including weight loss.
According to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, ganoderma contains active ingredients that can increase your metabolic rate after consumption. As your metabolism increases, your body uses more energy to digest food more efficiently. This energy is fueled by breaking down fat deposits and calories in your body, which can then lead to weight loss. Ganoderma increases the rate in which your body provides oxygen to your blood, which allows your body to exert additional energy.
Ganoderma supplements also contain polysaccharides which can serve as a strong detoxifying agent in your body according to the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, . In addition, polysaccharides strengthen your body’s natural healing ability while also assisting with digestion. According to MayoClinic.com, an improved digestive system may lead to more efficient waste excretion and thus increased weight loss. Further research is needed to substantiate claims of weight loss associated with detoxifying agents, however.
Consuming herbal supplements alone may not provide you the weight loss results you desire. Your doctor or nutritionist may also recommend additional weight loss techniques, such as an exercise program or a nutritional diet plan in order to help you achieve your goal. Be sure to monitor your weight loss with the help of your doctor via regular physicals. You should not choose ganoderma supplements for weight loss if you have a known allergy to mushrooms.
