The Health Benefits of Ganoderma (Reishi mushroom)

Updated on September 9, 2012

Hello everyone. Today I'm writing about Ganoderma, also known as Reishi mushroom and it's health benefits. I'll also explain one of the best ways to consume Ganoderma so as to start reaping the benefits of consuming it.

First of all, what is Ganoderma? Ganoderma is a mushroom that is hard and bitter. It's that simple. But what is more interesting is that it has been used in Asian medicine for centuries. In Chinese it is known as lingzhi. Interestingly the combination of these words, ling and zhi, mean "miraculous", "sacred", "efficacious", "effective", and "traditional plant of longevity." In Japanese, it is most comonly known as Reishi mushroom. That Latin name given to this mushroom is ganoderma lucidum.

Ganoderma has been used for centuries in traditional Asian medicine because of it's numerous health benefits with little or no side-effects. Recent scientific studies indicate the ganoderma strengthens the immune system, fights cancer, helps increase antioxidant levels, protects the liver, is an antibacterial, helps to lower blood cholesterol, and it even has anti-aging qualities, to name a few. One only has to do a search online for Ganoderma to see that there is a ton of information online about it and its health benefits.

This leads me to my next paragraph. How can I consume Ganoderma to start benefiting from it's health enhancing qualities? You could try to buy it and try to cook it which involves boiling it to soften it first and drinking it as a tea, which would be very bitter, or you could add it to a stew, that is if you can find it in your grocery store. This might be harder than you think. Fortunately for all of us, there's an easier way.

There are companies out there that have infused a variety of delicious coffees with 100% certified authentic Ganoderma. This has made it easy for thousands of people to consume Ganoderma safely and effectively so as to start reaping it's health benefits.

I encourage everyone to learn more. Since coffee is consumed by millions worldwide, it was very smart to create this coffee infused with Ganoderma, converting coffee into something healthy.
