Ganoderma Lucidum  also known as Lingzhi (Chinese)

or Reishi (Japanese) is a type of Mushroom that has been

consumed for thousands of years throughout Asia, for its beneficial effects on our ability to maintain or improve health.

Since the commercial use of this mushroom
in capsule form,
it is now used by over 5 million people world wide.
DXN Ganoderma provides help to the body through its wide range of nutraceuticals
(nutrients found in plants that have therapeutic properties).

 Ganoderma is an "Adaptogen" and contains up to 400 different nutrients

So - How does the body improve its overall well-being?


Firstly, no part of the body can be considered in isolation. Every part is linked to, and affects or is affected by, other parts.


Well-being is properly seen as overall health.  This includes how you feel, how your body operates, how it handles stress and environmental threats such as over-acidity, viruses or cellular disorders, and how it develops though the various stages of life.


When Well-being requires improvement, your body is not operating properly, due to the above threats. These may have been encountered through poor nutrition, external factors of stress or exposure to radiation, chemicals etc.


It deals with these threats to its well-being, using inbuilt systems of immune defence, detoxification and rebuilding of cells.  However, all these systems are made of cells and all of these cells require correct nutrition.



Ganoderma lucidum is a select plant that is loaded with a wide range of superior nutrition for the body cells.  Some of the most important are:

Polysaccharides: Beta D-Glucan, FA, F1, D-6, A, B, C-2, D, G-A Betaglucan, G-Z

 How can one fungus help the human body in so many ways?  
Traditional Eastern medical science explains Reishi's wide range of medicinal applications better, perhaps, than mainstream medicine ever could. According to Eastern thought, the body needs to defend itself against threats to its "equilibrium." These threats can be physical, such as viruses and bacteria that cause infection; emotional, such as stressors that cause anxiety; or energetic, in that they reduce alertness. Whatever the threat, Reishi helps the body maintain its defense against these threats to its equilibrium, helping the body to maintain balance.  In this sense, if the body is out of balance, this is why an equilibrium-enhancing remedy such as Reishi can help so many diverse ailments.
Different types of Reishi
Though there are six different types of Reishi, all classified by color, herbalists generally call red Reishi the most potent and medicinal variety, and thus it is the most commonly used form of reishi in North America, Japan, China & Taiwan. In the wild, the mushroom grows on deciduous trees in heavily forested areas of China and Japan, but it's now easily and widely cultivated commercially, so you don't have to venture into the forest to enjoy the benefits of what "Herbal Medicine-Maker's Handbook" author James Green calls a "remarkably beneficial fungus for the human body."

However, keep in mind that Reishi isn't exactly the kind of mushroom you'll want to put in your next salad, either. Since it's more than 90 percent indigestible fiber, Reishi has an extremely wood-like texture and to top it off, it's unpleasantly bitter. In spite of this bitter flavor, many Reishi enthusiasts use ground Reishi to make a life-enhancing tea or even use the mushrooms in soups. For the less daring take Reishi capsules, tablets and extracts, and Japanese research suggests taking vitamin C along with it may enhance Reishi's medicinal effects.

No organ enjoys Reishi attention more than the liver!
                                               With its 300-plus biochemical processes and functions,
                        the liver has the most to gain from regular intake of natures strongest adaptogen.



Ganoderma Observation Theories

One of the holistic (whole body) approaches to alternative complementary medicine consists of 4 observation theories used to explain how Ganoderma supports the body and its Immune System to overcome health problems on its own.


4 Observation Theories  

1. All health problems of the human body arise from 2 main causes:

 Toxin - anything in excess or not needed by the body is toxin. It can be virus, bacteria, dust, bad cholesterol, chemicals from toxic products and environment, etc. Imbalance of the body - if the body is not functioning as it should, the body is in a state of imbalance. This can be caused by trauma or injury, which can cause organs and internal systems to malfunction, resultng in symptoms that are often mistakenly diagnosed as diseases.

2. Ganoderma supports the body while the body takes care of its own health.                                

3. The reaction is caused by the body and not by the Ganoderma.  

 It has been observed that Ganoderma has effects on the human body whether you are aware of them or not.

2. Emotional

Ailment Reflection -  a BLINKING LIGHT !

When a car is having an engine problem, the panel board will display a blinking light.

This blinking light indicates that the engine of the car is having a problem.

Can the engine problem be solved by switching off the blinking light?

No, the blinking light tells you where the problem is. 
Do not just treat the symptom, use it to find the cause.

  Your Immune System is The Best Doctor 
A Strong Immune System means Having a Healthy Body

Nature has gifted man with a natural doctor right from his birth.


The name of this doctor in our body is "immune system". This doctor is born with us and dies with us.



If your immune system is strong, the body is able to effectively fight diseases caused by bacteria, virus

or simply body imbalances (e.g. elemental or nutritional deficiencies).


However, when your immune  system goes weak, the "foreign invaders" or toxins (poison) penetrate

into the cells of the body and cause diseases.


If lung cells are affected, it creates asthma or other respiratory diseases.


If heart cells are affected, it gives rise to blood pressure, heart related problems, etc.


If kidney cells are affected, the kidney organs lose the ability to excrete waste products leading to

kidney failure, then dialysis will be required and eventually kidney transplantation.


If joints and bones are affected, it leads to arthritis leading to impaired mobility.


If brain cells are affected, it affects sensory and  loco motor functions of the body. It may also lead

to migraine, meningitis, paralysis, blurry vision, etc.


Worst of all, if those affected cells become extremely abnormal in structure (anatomy) and

function (physiology) that would spread affecting the good cells, we call them cancer cells. 


Thus, when the doctor in us looses his power of resistance, we become weak and contract diseases

in various organs of the body.


The Immune System is our best defence against disease. It is a network of cells, tissues and organs that work together to protect the body against attacks by "foreign" invaders or toxins. It destroys infected and malignant cells, and removes cellular debris. The system includes:

1.      Protective Barriers: Mucous membranes and Skin

2.      Creation of Antibodies: Tonsils, Thymus, Lymph Nodes and Tissues, Spleen and Bone Marrow

3.      Soldiers Cells: T lymphocytes and B lymphocytes
Exposure to Toxins:

1.      Dust

2.      Pollens

3.      Smoke (1st & 2nd hand smoking) or polluted air

4.      Micro organisms (virus, bacteria, fungi & protozoa)

5.      Cumulative "mild" chemicals (preservatives, chlorine, fluoride, pesticides, etc.)

Many of these toxins get into our body as we breathe, eat, drink, and are exposed to the environment. Due to these daily exposures in varying degrees, our body cells become "out of balance". Then, health problems or diseases develop to the point that they become chronic or lifetime. To avoid this, we should always keep our Immune-System strong.

Exposure to toxins cannot be avoided as we cannot stop breathing, drinking or eating. So, we need a PERMANENT PROTECTOR against toxins! 
Why do people get sick?

  •  Body exposure to toxins
  •  Immune System reacts to toxins
  • Immune System uses up its existing cell population

  • (immune system cells or soldier cells)
  •  Immune System uses up existing supply of raw materials

  • (proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, nucleotides, vitamins, etc.)
  •  No more Immune System cells or soldiers are produced

  • or rate of production is slower than needed
  •  Stressed out Immune System
  •  Body of person gets SICK!
The experts speak on Reishi:


One key function, identified long ago by Eastern medical science, is defense--that is, the body has the need and ability to defend itself against threats to its equilibrium, whether they be physical, emotional, or energetic. Having noted and studied the body's defensive capabilities, Chinese doctors then explored the natural world to find ways of maintaining and enhancing them, and they discovered a number of ways to do so, including the administration of herbal remedies. Among these remedies is Ganoderma lucidum (known to the Chinese as ling chih and the Japanese as Reishi).

8 Weeks To Optimum Health By Andrew Weil MD, page 15

Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) contains carbohydrates, fibre, amino acids, plant sterols, triterpenes, lipids, glucoside, coumarin glycoside, volatile oil, vitamin B2 (riboflavin), and ascorbic acid.

Additionally, Reishi contains ganoderic acid, which is a free-radical scavenger, giving Reishi antioxidant powers.

Prescription For Dietary Wellness by Phyllis A Balch, page 168
Ganoderic acids U through Z,  including six types of cytotoxic triterpenes are  found in Reishi.

Herbal Medicine Healing  by Donald R Yance Jr, page 156
It is rich in a number of complex phyto-chemicals, including ergosterol, fumaric acid, aminoglucose, and man-nitol; coumarins; alkaloids; lactone; and various enzymes.

The Way Of Herbs by Michael Tierra, page 313

Not all of the active components in Reishi have been isolated; like many other organic substances, the molecules in this plant are quite complex, though they are probably mostly polysaccharides and peptides. Dr. Terry Willard, a proponent of the medical uses of this mushroom, maintains that Reishi also decreases free radicals by 50.4 percent through an as yet, unidentified antioxidant. ... Other researchers suspect that Reishi may not have an antioxidant of its own but rather stimulates production of the body's own free radical scavenger, an enzyme called superoxide dismutase (SOD).

Attaining Medical Self Sufficiency An Informed Citizens Guide by Duncan Long, page 196

Reishi is a purely medicinal mushroom, not a culinary one, both because it is hard and woody and because it tastes very bitter. But it is nontoxic and has been the subject of a surprising amount of scientific research, both in Asia and the West.
8 Weeks To Optimum Health By Andrew Weil MD, page 140
Reishi Mushrooms known are the "lucky fungus," in Japan.  Reishi mushrooms were originally used in China in both cooking and traditional healing. Reishi mushrooms, which are quite pricey, are available in Asian markets and gourmet shops. However, they may be worth their weight in gold.
Earl Mindells Soy Miracle Earl Mindel RPH PHD, page 107

Mushrooms, particularly Eastern varieties, revitalize the body. Various cultures consider them to contain the secrets of staying young. They also provide key B vitamins and a high concentration of pantothenic acid.

Food Swings by Barnet Meltzer MD, page 258

Ganoderma: Ganoderma lucidum, the Chinese "mushroom of immortality" called ling zhi (in Japan, Reishi) has been extensively studied in the laboratory. My teacher of Chinese medicine, the late Dr. York Why Loo, kept a specimen of dried wild Chinese ling zhi in a jar for use in his old age. So revered by Chinese doctors is ling zhi that it is frequently pictured on their business cards or displayed in their shop windows as a sign of respect for its importance.

Viral Immunity by J.E, page 292

In China, many pharmacological, chemical, and biochemical studies have been conducted with this remarkable mushroom. Results show that Reishi meets all qualifications of being an Adaptogen and tonic.

Miracle Medicine Herbs by Richard M Lucas, page 9

 Reishi is one of the most versatile medicinal mushrooms. It has long been used in Asia as an energy tonic to promote longevity and overall health. Studies indicate that Reishi is an antioxidant and contains polysaccharides and other compounds that may boost the immune system.

Off The Shelf Natural Health How To Use Herbs And Nutrients To Stay Well By Mark Mayell, page 88


Ancient Chinese herbalists considered the Reishi mushroom the most beneficial of all medicines. Today, the Japanese government officially recognizes the Reishi mushroom.

Prescription For Dietary Wellness by Phyllis A Balch, page 167

Sabley said that Reishi contains two major groups of organic compounds: Ganoderic acids (compounds with a structure similar to steroid hormones) and polysaccharides (long chains of naturally occurring sugar molecules or carbohydrates).

Attaining Medical Self Sufficiency An Informed Citizens Guide by Duncan Long, page 196
This mushroom is prized in Japan and China, where its rare qualities have been known for over 4,000 years. Scientific studies have confirmed its medicinal properties.  Since the raw mushroom is woody and inedible, the traditional method of preparing Reishi is to make a tea by simmering it for a long time in water. Fortunately, it is also available in a powdered form. (capsules)
The Herbal Drugstore by Linda B White MD, page 327
Perhaps one of the reasons the Chinese regard mushrooms as spirit medicine is the claim found in the oldest recorded botanical monograph on this powerful Chinese medicine.
