The Ganoderma mushroom is one of the oldest mushrooms to be used in Chinese herbalism, ranking close to ginseng for years of usage. It is one of the most researched mushrooms, partly because in Ganoderma there are substances called triterpenes. These are found in many foods and plants like honey, apples, and cranberries. There are 50 of these substances that are exlusively found in ganoderma mushrooms. When the Ganoderma Lucidum mature, they release spores which are used for our Premium Organo King of Coffee.
