What is Ganoderma?

The King of Mushrooms 

The King of Herbs

The Health Modulator

Lingzhi mushroom is a superior herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Red Reishi – the Food of Emperors

It is one of the mushroom categories that give the highest therapeutic effect to human bodies.

In nature Reishi grows in densely wooded mountains of high humidity and dim lighting.

It is a very scarce and hard to find plant.

Its scientific name is Ganoderma Lucidum.

Its Chinese name is Lingzhi.

Its Japanese name is Reishi.

This blog of mine is mainly the transcription of DXN Ganotherapeut’s presentation, who is my upline sponsor as well.:

The history of Ganoderma

For more than 2000 years Lingzhi mushroom has been considered so auspicious that it’s medicinal efficacy has been attested to the oldest Chinese medical text.

Gano derma means 'shiny skin'. This fungus is a superior herb in TCM.

The Food of Emperors

Reishi was only reserved for emperors and royalties of China for centuries to promote longevity.

Ganoderma has been categorized as King of Herbs and named as the Mushroom of Immortality.

Lingzhi is documented in the oldest Chinese pharmacopoeia (Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing – Divine Farmer’s Classic of Materia Medica) for having the most extensive and effective healing powers.

Hierarchy of herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM):


Helps to recover from sickness and promotes balance in body systems. It can be consumed in the long run without side effects.


Promotes balance but does not help cure, so it is considered as “tonic”. Can only be consumed periodically.


Helps to remove symptoms but does not necessarily promote balance in the body systems. Can only be consumed when needed. There may be side effects.

Ganoderma lucidum is a superior herb with no toxic effects.

Ganoderma goes into the spotlight

It achieved its ranking in Chinese writings not because of its symbolic importance as a good omen, but because of its medicinal properties with no side effects. It is 100% safe to use.

Today many of its bioactive compounds are classified and uncovered.

The modern scientists who have taken interest in this ancient remedy came from Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Malaysia, India, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam. Then it slowly attracted the attention of the Western countries like New Zealand, Canada and the United States.

Ganoderma cultivation

1970: China and Japan successfully planted Ganoderma in laboratory using spore separation cultivation method.

1975: Commercial production in Japan.

1980: Commercial production in Taiwan.

1983: Commercial production in Malaysia.

How to reassure the quality of DXN RG?

  1. The right species
  2. The age of the plant
  3. The process of extraction
  4. The concentration

Let’s have a look at this points in details.

DXN RG: The King of Detoxifiers

  1. The right species

Malaysia has more than 400 varieties of edible Ganoderma. After many years of research by DXN CEO Dato’ Dr. Lim Siow Jin, 6 varieties of Red Mushrooms were being selected since they give the best therapeutic effects. DXN Ganoderma is a combination of 6 types of Red Mushrooms: Liver Gano, Kimshen Gano, Ruyi Gano, Brain Gano, Peacock Gano and Heart Gano.

The six best types of Ganodermas are used in DXN products

Best of the best: DXN Ganoderma

  1. The age of Ganoderma

In ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine context the older Ganoderma gives a better medicinal effect. However most of the nutrients are being stored in the mushroom spores. When the Ganoderma gets too old, there will not be any spores left.

DXN RG Is derived from the 3-month-old mushroom spores. If the age of Reishi is either too young or too old it will lose its medicinal efficacy.

Due to the humid climate in Malaysia the concentration of the spores in the mushroom is high. It can be easily harvested within 3 months.

DXN Ganoderma factory workers

Filling polibags with organic material for growing Ganoderma.

Ganoderma mushrooms in DXN Malaysia factories are grown using sawdust and rice husk. The sawdust and the rice husks are being placed into biodegradable polybags. The medium will be sterilized in an autoclave machine to kill other fungus within. Insect nets are used to keep the insects away from the growing medicinal mushrooms. Spring water is sprayed to maintain the humidity and moisture in the Ganoderma farm.

DXN autoclave machine sterilizes the Ganoderma in polibags.

  1. Process of extraction

In Traditional Chinese Medicine Lingzhi was sliced and boiled for a long time to obtain the extract. However most of the nutrients were being destroyed during the heating process.

DXN extracts the fruit body by means of Cold Method, preserving the therapeutic effects of the medicinal mushroom. The micro-powderation technology enhances the bioavailability so the nutrients absorb into the body more easily.

Behind the scenes of DXN Ganoderma capsule production

Production stages of DXN Ganoderma capsules

  1. The concentration

From 20 kg of fruit body 4 kg of dried mushroom is produced. 4 kg of dried, processed Lingzhi gives 1kg of RG. Hence the total ratio of the fruit body and active substance of RG is 20:1.

The concentration is very crucial to determine the therapeutic effects of the Ganoderma.

DXN Ganoderma powders and capsules contain only the active substance of the medicinal mushroom!

Growing stages of DXN Ganoderma

The Cold Method, step-by-step

1. Dehydration:

Freeze drying method to lock in all the nutrients and health benefits of Ganoderma.

(5 kilos = 1 kilo when dried)

2. Fiber separation:

Removing the less therapeutic fiber from dried Reishi using a high-technology process developed by DXN. (4 kilos = 1 kilo)

3. Ultraviolet ray treatment:

Part of the process used to disinfect while preserving therapeutic effects found in Ganoderma.

4. Micro-powderation:

Crushing the hard covering of Ganoderma spores and reducing them to micro size. All nutrients are preserved throughout the entire process.

The total concentration is 20 to 1. This also means 100% pure active substance of the medicinal mushroom.

Freeze drying:

Freeze drying method retains 97% of nutrition of the medicinal mushroom. It is remarkable because it causes no damage to the nutrition of the food being preserved.

Nutritional value of foods retained with different kind of methods:

Freeze dried 97%

Dehydrated 60%

Canned 40%

Toxins accumulate in the body

We get rid of water soluble toxins through sweat, sputum and urine.

We purge fat soluble toxins through defecation.


Ganotherapy uses Ganoderma mushroom, enzyme therapy, green theory, mushroom family and other essential functional foods.

Why Ganotherapy?

  1. To create a better health in the long term.
  2. To help balance the body to reach its homeostasis state.
  3. Cellular rejuvenation.
  4. Improve the natural body healing ability.

The basic principles of Ganotherapy

  1. Scanning: from 1 to 30 days.
  2. Detoxifying cells: from 1 to 30 weeks.
  3. Regulating body functions: from 1 to 12 months.
  4. Building resistance from: 6 to 24 months.
  5. Rejuvenation: from 1 to 3 years onwards.

These five points help to reach balance and the better healing ability.

Ganoderma Mycelium capsules are part of Ganotherapy

Ganoderma Mycelium capsules are also used in Ganotherapy.

Ganotherapy is a health manager

During the scanning, detoxification and regulation period, some people may experience some healing crisis. Reishi is a good benchmark to see if the body has reached its homeostasis level. If you do not experience any healing reaction, it means your body has reached its balance level. Through modulating the immune system, we are able to attain homeostasis of the body. When health is maintained, longevity can be achieved.

So don’t panic, if you experience reactions during Ganotherapy. Headache, fever, tiredness, body ache, sore throat, cough, runny nose are all the symptoms of detoxification. These are not side effects.

Ganotherapy is preventive science

Ganoderma can change an imbalanced body to a healthy one.

Diseases like organs and system imbalances, pre-illnesses like cells and tissue imbalance are all reversible so the body can reach its homeostasis: health.
