(also call Lingzhi and Reishi) is a large, dark red natural
mushroom with a glossy exterior which is a member of the
Polyproraceac family. It is the ONLY known source of a group of
Triterpenes, which have a molecular structure similar to steroid
hormones. It has the most active Polysaccharides (long "chains" of
sugars) among medicinal plant which can improve your body's immune

years. Ganoderma has shown in many scientific studies that it has
the ability to help the body function more effectively, and improve

has increased even further, as it has been added to the American
Herbal Pharmacopoeia and Therapeutic Compendium.

lucidum is one of the treasures of Chinese medicine. Being named as
the "fairy herb-The best herb". In both the popular ancient Chinese
medical publications, "Shen Nong's Materia Medica" and "Pen-ts'ao
Kan-mu" (Compendium of Materia Medica) written respectively in the
Han and Ming Dynasties, there were detailed descriptions of the
effect of Lingzhi. Contemporary studies further proved its
pharmaceutical effects, and confirmed that Lingzhi polysaccharide
is the key ingredient to maintain physiological balance and promote
immunity. Today, Lingzhi has been formally recognized as a medicine
listed in the China state pharmacopoeia. At the same time, Lingzhi
has been sanctified by the State as a new food resource. Lingzhi
can be served both as food and medicine.

high-density cultivation technique. Ganoderma
lucidum, (Lingzhi, Reishi) is rich in organic compounds
such as polysaccharide, amino acid, triterpines, ascorbic acid,
sterols, lipids, alkaloids, and trace minerals. These compounds are
being studied for their effect on the immune system.

are indispensable to human), protein, steroid, triterpene,
mannitol, coumarin, alkaloids, organic acids (mainly fumarate), and
micro-elements, such as Ge, P, Fe, Ca, Mn, Zn, etc. Lingzhi can
help to maintain the balance within the body.

Wild Lingzhi is scarce and
suffers from adverse environmental conditions such as insect
infestation, lack of proper nutrients, non-optimum temperatures,
and lack of humidity. The timing of the harvest cannot be
controlled, and the mature Lingzhi has already lost most of its
digestible active ingredients. The active ingredients in the dried
mushroom may also have lost much of their beneficial biological
activity. The 6 different types of Lingzhi (differentiated by
colour: red, purple, blue, yellow, black, white) recorded in
Chinese pharmacopoeia are actually one species grown under
different conditions. In 1972, a Japanese researcher who pioneered
the growing of Lingzhi demonstrated that by varying the conditions
of growth, Lingzhi of 6 different colours could be grown from the

Since 1970s, numerous studies
on Ganoderma have been conducted throughout the world. Scientific
studies find that Ganoderma is rich in effective pharmaceutical

Constituents and Effects of Ganoderma or CD4
The chemical composition of
Ganoderma is very complex. But it is known that Ganoderma contains
the following constituents: Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides,
Triterpenoids, Nucleic acid, Organic Germanium, amino acids,
calcium, magnesium, iron etc.

These include Adenine,

The organic Germanium’s content
in Ganoderma is 10 times that of Ginseng. Organic Germanium has the
effect of improving the circulation, enhancing the oxygen carrying

There has been keen interest in
the field of biomedical technology concerning the therapeutic
effects of Germanium. Ganoderma contains the greatest amount of
germanium. The following list shows the germanium content of each
