Red Mushrooms (scientific name: Ganoderma Lucidum, also called "Reishi" or "Lingzhi"), a family of more than 200 mushroom species, are good for our health. Of these, 6 species have a high medicinal and therapeutic values.
Amazing Facts about Ganoderma
Ganoderma is known for centuries as the "Miraculous King of Herbs" that has a traceable consumption record of more than 2,000 years.
5 highly therapeutic bioactive compounds that work in synergy to correct cell imbalances, detoxify the body and strengthen its natural immune system. They exist all together naturally only in red mushrooms.
Ganoderma is an adaptogen that works directly on every cell of the human body. It provides oxygen, nutrients and elements that correct cell imbalances. Thus, strengthening the cell membranes so the cells will not take in new toxins.
"If the cells are healthy, the body (which is a bundle of cells) is healthy."
Ganoderma inhales oxygen and exhales carbon dioxide while growing like human beings. So, when we take it, we add good quantity oxygen to our bodies.
Ganoderma grows very rare in the forest. Yet, it has a million micro spores (dormant reproductive cells) that never functioned to massively reproduce before the invention of technology.
Only technology activates those spores to reproduce one Ganoderma specie into a million members of the same Ganoderma species. This process is more than enough to continuously feed and sustain the demand for humans all over the world.
Ganoderma works directly on the body starting from its cells (not on the disease), thus making it possible for the body to treat the "root cause" of any disease including those believed to be incurable, chronic or recurrent.
Ganoderma can be taken long-term without the fear of developing a tolerance to its effects.
Ganoderma is not a drug. It is classified under food category by the Food and Drug Regulating authorities.
For over 2000 years, the Chinese have given Ganoderma, or what they call Lingzhi, the highest ranking in traditional medical theory. The name Ling Zhi means "Divine herb that energizes the Chi or Life force". The first Chinese Emperor Chin Shi Huang Ti even called it the "Herb of Deathlessness".
The Emperors of the ancient period respected the mushroom so much that they have given it names like "The Elixir of Immortality", "Herb of Spiritual Potency" and "Soup of the Emperor with a Thousand Mistresses".
The Japanese name for the red mushroom, Reishi, was taken from Reishi Senshi, "An Ancient Goddess of Health, Life and Eternal Youth".
The 90 day old Red Mushrooms (Matured Ganoderma), contain approximately 400 different bioactive compounds which can be divided into 3 categories: 30% of water soluble elements, 65% of organic soluble elements, and 5% of volatile elements. Five of the main active elements have high therapeutic effects:
Polysaccharides (THE CLEANSER) - strengthen the natural healing ability of the body by improving the body's immune system, eliminating viruses, bacteria and other toxins.
Organic Germanium (THE BALANCER) - increases the effect of oxygen absorbed by the blood up to 1.5 times, promotes proper cell metabolism and prevents tissue degeneration.
Adenosine (THE REGULATOR) - improves blood circulation by inhibiting blood platelet aggregation and regulates body organs to function properly.
Triterpenoids (THE BUILDER) - activate the nucleus of body cells, which is responsible for directing their growth, metabolism, reproduction and functioning.
Ganoderic Essence (THE REGENERATOR) - rejuvenates body tissues and beautifies skin.
The 18 day old Red Mushrooms (Young Ganoderma). It is the mycelium (root part) of Ganoderma. The content of Polysaccharide and Organic Germanium in Ganocelium is more concentrated than that of Reishi Gano. It serves also as a source of oxygen.
Polysaccharides - 4 times more than that of RG
Organic Germanium - 4 times more than the RG
Vitamins - for normal growth & activity of the body
Minerals - essential components of body substances
