What is Ganoderma, you say?
It is what makes Organo Gold products so special.
A little-known ingredient known as Ganoderma. Here’s the story behind this miraculous ingredient, and the mushroom from whence it came…
“Once upon a time there was a fungus — an incredible mushroom known as Ganoderma lucidum. But there’s nothing common about this species. Ganoderma lucidum is a very important type of mushroom because of its extensive use in traditional Asian medicine.
For thousands of years, Ganoderma lucidum has been recognized by practitioners of traditional Asian medicine as the highest ranked of all herbs found in the Chinese pharmacopoeia. 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.”
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.
Organo Gold is the only North American company who has partnered with the largest certified organic Ganoderma plantations in the world to bring this “treasure of life” to the Western world. In 2009, Organo Gold and its partners celebrated the groundbreaking of their $240 million Gano Herb Industrial Park, the largest of its kind in the world.
Today, Organo Gold is a thriving global family in a position to make a positive impact on a massive scale. Organo Gold is now the proud corporate sponsor of the OG Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization that is helping create the leaders of tomorrow by enriching the lives of young people around the world.
