Ganoderma Lucidum, also known as red reishi, possesses many different medicinal properties dependent on the stage and environment of its growth (Jong and Birmingham, 1992, Liu, 1999). Traditionally, it has been widely used in the treatment of hepatopathy, chronic hepatitis, nephritis, hypertension, arthritis, neurasthenia, insomnia, bronchitis, asthma and gastric ulcers. Scientific studies have confirmed that substances extracted from the mushroom can reduce blood pressure, blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels as well as inhibit platelet aggregations.

Selection of your Red Reishi
In order to assist you as you plan to make a smart investment for better health, we put together some guidelines to educate you in choosing the right reishi ganoderma products. When shopping for a reishi product, we recommend that you consider the following factors:
Origin: Country where the product is manufactured. Beware of south-east asian manufacturers as their quality control differs from the standards we have come to expect. Consider Japan or USA made products.
Type: Insist on Red Reishi as it is proven to possess medicinal values used by all clinical researches around the globe.
Part used: Fruit body specifically, full lifecycle or broken-shell spores. Caution, many products out there add massive dose of pulverized brown rice or other inactive fillers in the final capsule.
Essence extraction method: Hot Water Extract - the most traditional and effective method to derive high potency of the polysaccharides in reishi. Advanced nano atomization is becoming more popular with today's sophisticated technologies.
% of polysaccharide: (the most common measurement used to indicate the potency of the reishi product). The higher the better. Insist in writing from the retailers about their product polyssacharides percentage. We've heard stories where they'll make up a percentage when you call them. Ask them for an official digital copy of their Certificate of Analysis showing the lab results of the polyssacharides percentage of their products.
Product safety test results: ask for a digital copy of the lab tests showing the absence of EColi, Salmonella and other microbiological agents as well as heavy metals such as lead and arsenic. A copy of our GanoPrime reishi lab test results is shown here
Total weight: of red reishi used to produce the final product. The ratio of original raw reishi to the extract as well as the total milligram per capsule. Usually denoted as a number:another number. First number means the number or original raw element, the second number is the resulting extract. For instance, GanoPrime as a 15:1 ratio, which means 15 pound of raw reishi to make 1 pound of extract.
Beware of mix mushrooms ingredients claiming better quality. The content of the expensive beneficial red Reishi is usually low thus resulting in deceiving low price. No definitive research are showing significant values of mix mushrooms.
If the origin of the mushrooms and manufacturing processes are dubious, they probably are.
The content of questionable reishi in coffee or tea based products is so low to reap any benefits out of it. You are better off adding soluble reishi powder yourself so you know the concentration.
If you can't get all of the factual information you need from a retailer, stay away from their products.
Make sure to find out the total cost of your purchase as there are often inflated shipping or handling fees that will negate any advertised sales or low price offers.
Last, but not least, buy from a reputable store that is knowledgeable about reishi specifically. Make the call and ask them questions. You will be able to tell if they really know what they are selling.
When it comes to your health, there really is no second choice. Remember, use good judgement and, when in doubt, rely on the saying "you get what you pay for".
