Organo Gold Ganoderma – The Different Forms

What Is Ganoderma And What Are The Forms It Come In?


ganoderma health benefitsThey are the questions that I asked since I had never heard of Ganoderma.  Learning that Ganoderma was in Organo Gold's coffee and green tea was a delight as I love both but even better to know that it was also in the supplements! 

Ganoderma is an herb that comes from the Reishi mushroom. Many herbs are taken for different medicinal purposes but ganoderma surpasses them all. Thus named the "King of Herbs," it is packed with powerful antioxidants.



In the US, this herb has not reached a level of popularity where it could be called well-known. If someone is asked if they have heard of ganoderma in this region of the world, it would not be surprising for the response to be, "gano-what?"

Even spell-check – a tool trusted and utilized by people in all walks of life – does not contain the word ganoderma. Ganoderma does have a proven track record, though; it has been used in traditional Asian medicine for over 4,000 years.

Let’s take a look at the Organo Gold Nutraceutical and Food Supplement products in detail.

Ganoderma Lucidum

These small capsules contain an amazing ingredient — the incredible fungus known as Ganoderma mushroom, which has been revered for literally thousands of years by practitioners of traditional Asian medicine. All of our organic Ganoderma Lucidum, known as the “King of Herbs”, comes only from the finest sources, growing undisturbed on logs high in the Wuyi Mountains of China’s Fuzhou region.

Ganoderma Lucidum Mycelium

This version of Ganoderma is harvested from a mushroom just 18 days old, and is renowned for its potent antioxidant properties — and also contains the polysaccharide Beta-glucan, which can help to stimulate immune function. Try removing the powder from the capsules and adding it to your morning smoothie or protein shake for an extra boost.

Ganoderma Spore Powder

This product captures the Ganoderma mushroom’s incredible spores at the height of their potency — when they are richer in an array of naturally beneficial compounds, including polysaccharides, triterpenes, and selenium. Our patented shell-breaking technology allows us to harness these compounds, resulting in a premium product for those aiming to be at the pinnacle of good health.

Grape Seed Oil

Packaged in simple capsule form, this product delivers the benefits of grape seed oil, a substance hailed for its enriching properties. Grape seed oil is naturally rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and other beneficial phytochemicals.

That's it in a nutshell.  My own personal experience with Ganoderma is amazing. I feel much healthier. I am off my BP pills, in fact, my BP is lower than when I was on meds!  I also lost a few pounds without even trying and I've received so many compliments on how radiant my skin looks! 

I invite you to try any of our Organo Gold products and see how it can help you as well. Click here to order!

To health, wealth and happiness!

    Thanks for the information, Alexandra.  Organo Gold  definitely sounds like something to check out. The benefits of Ganoderma Lucidum sound amazing. 

    • Alexandra McAllister February 18, 2013, 2:50 PM

      Yes, there are many benefits, Cathy. AND the coffees and tea taste great as well, in fact, better than other specialty brands that I’ve tried.

  • Lorrie February 18, 2013, 1:05 PM

    I have a log inoculated with reishi mushroom and they are beginning to sprout. I knew of the benefits of this fungi, and I appreciate this reminder!

    • Alexandra McAllister February 18, 2013, 2:46 PM

      Oh, that is wonderful, Lorrie! I’ve seen pics of how this wonderful mushroom grows! You are lucky to have your own sprouting at home!

  • Sherie February 18, 2013, 1:43 PM

    This sounds like an amazing product, Alexandra. I like that your company has put it in forms that we already consume, like the coffee and hot chocolate. I know that I don't like having to take supplements but I really enjoy a good cup of coffee or hot chocolate!

    • Alexandra McAllister February 18, 2013, 2:45 PM

      Sherie, the Organo Gold coffee, etc. are delicious! I am now taking grapeseed which is also from Organo Gold. I am looking forward to seeing even more positive results. Thanks for dropping by.

  • Martha Giffen February 18, 2013, 2:42 PM

    Thanks for educating us!  I didn't know a single solitary thing about this until I read your post.  Great stuff!

    • Alexandra McAllister February 18, 2013, 2:44 PM

      You are most welcome, Martha. I knew about this wonder mushroom a few years ago but then I was healthy and didn’t have any major issues. I am so glad that my friend suggested I start drinking OG coffee. It has made such a difference!

  • Aimee February 18, 2013, 4:31 PM

    I love reading new information on natural health options and supplements – I read the whole thing to add to my store of knowledge for when I or a loved one needs something. Thank you for sharing with us.

    • Alexandra McAllister February 18, 2013, 5:21 PM

      That’s a great idea, Aimee! If you enjoy coffee, tea, hot chocolate….Organo Gold beverages taste delicious! :)

  • Karla Campos February 18, 2013, 8:13 PM

    This is the first time I hear of this herb, I was one of the people asking "gano-what?" before your informative article. Thanks : )

    • Alexandra McAllister February 19, 2013, 10:32 AM

      I did the same thing’ Karla, when my friend introduced me to Organo Gold! I had no idea what “Ganoderma” was or the benefits. Now, I know! :)

  • Lisa Birnesser February 18, 2013, 10:16 PM

    Wow-the benefits of Organo Gold are amazing! And to think it's in coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Thanks for this awesome information and all of the health benefit, Alexandra!

    • Alexandra McAllister February 19, 2013, 10:33 AM

      Yes, Lisa, that’s why I am so thrilled about this company and their products! It’s a win-win!!

  • MamaRed February 19, 2013, 12:43 AM

    Well holy moly, who knew so many good things could be added to my favorite beverage! Wowser!

  • Moira Hutchison February 19, 2013, 3:52 PM

    Thanks for explaining the different forms of this powerful product!  I've never tried the hot chocolate but I do like the coffee ;).

    • Alexandra McAllister February 19, 2013, 6:50 PM

      You are most welcome, Moira. I am glad that you like the coffee. All the beverages are delicious! This week my favorite is the Gourmet Mocha! :)

  • Carl Mason-Liebenberg February 20, 2013, 9:34 AM

    Thank you Alexandra for sharing this. Sounds very interesting and powerful for sure!

      You are welcome, Carl. I just received my order today of Organo Gold Grapeseed so I am anxious to see the results from this product. I’ll keep everyone posted.

  • Catherine Doucette February 22, 2013, 7:03 PM

    Sounds like a great product. We just never know what real food does for us :)

  • Sharon O'Day February 23, 2013, 8:40 AM

    As Sherie says, it makes so much sense to add "good things" to what we already consume.  Especially when it is not done in order to replace something that processing takes out, such as "enriched flour" in breads.  In this case, it's simply "effective piggybacking!"

    • Alexandra McAllister February 23, 2013, 2:01 PM

      I totally agree, Sharon. I’ve had better results going the “good things” way than I’ve had with meds. Thanks for dropping by!

  • Christy Garrett June 10, 2013, 9:37 AM

  • Barbara Becker June 10, 2013, 12:34 PM

    Hi Alexandra, Thank you for sharing this information about Ganoderma. Is it possible to receive a small sample to find out how it tastes? By the way, I love your website. Very clean and easy to navigate!

    • Alexandra McAllister June 10, 2013, 2:52 PM

      Barbara, Ganoderma is infused in our coffees and teas and in our nutraceuticals (which are capsules) to there is no taste. :)

  • Carla J Gardiner June 10, 2013, 12:57 PM

    Learned a ton about Ganoderma and it's many health benefits. Thank you Alexandra for sharing this wonderful product and how/why it's beneficial for all of us.

    • Alexandra McAllister June 10, 2013, 2:51 PM

      You are most welcome, Carla. It’s really a wonderful health benefit. Thanks for dropping in.

  • Wow, wow, wow! Ganoderma really is a super herb. Thanks so much for explaining its many health benefits, Alexandra! It's wonderful to see how passionate you are about your work.

    • Alexandra McAllister June 10, 2013, 5:19 PM

  • Marie Leslie June 10, 2013, 11:04 PM

    I had not heard of Ganoderma before reading your article, Alexandra. It definitely sounds like something I will need to look into further. So many benefits and uses.

    • Alexandra McAllister June 11, 2013, 9:11 AM

      I was amazed when I first read about the health benefits of Ganoderma, Marie. That’s what sealed the deal for me! And the coffees tastes great! :)

  • Rob June 11, 2013, 9:50 AM

    There are tons of benefits that i had no idea about! Thanks for sharing.

  • Roslyn Tanner Evans June 11, 2013, 2:32 PM

    So glad you explained your product. Are there samples of coffee one can try before getting into an order?

    • Alexandra McAllister June 12, 2013, 6:36 PM

      Roslyn, I used to send out samples but the ones sent from Canada to the US never got there…at least 95% didn’t, so I no longer send them out. I’d suggest looking at the coffees we have and order one that you think you’d like. I’ve always enjoyed cafe latte and mocha so was glad that Organo Gold had these. They are delicious! I usually replace water with rice milk or coconut milk. It’s so good! :)

  • Leslie Ferris June 11, 2013, 4:05 PM

    Thanks for this.  This is something that I have never heard of before.  I am going to check into it!

    My favorite part is "Ganoderma is a super herb which rapidly oxygenates your body and automatically adjusts your PH to a healthy balance at the cellular level.   Weight Loss: Oxygen is a necessary component for burning fuel. The more you oxygenate the body, the higher your metabolism. That means weight loss."  Is this the coffee they say makes you lose weight?
    Yvonne Brown

    • Alexandra McAllister June 12, 2013, 9:57 AM

      Yyonne, yes it certainly does help. Ganoderma has many other health benefits as well. It certainly has improved my health.

    • Alexandra McAllister June 12, 2013, 5:53 PM

      Yvonne, losing weight is achieved by a combination of things, I know for me, personally, I’ve lost a few pounds since I started drinking Organo Gold coffees and tea. I also walk, exercise and watch what I eat. My room mate, on the other hand, drinks the Organo Gold coffee and tea BUT he also eats candy, desserts and drinks 4 – 6 cans of coke per day! Does he lose weight? NO, of course not! Ganoderma can help but one must do their share as well.

  • Anita June 12, 2013, 9:54 AM

    This was very informative! And wowee….That mushroom packs a lot of punch!

  • Moira Hutchison June 12, 2013, 1:10 PM

    Ganoderma certainly has an impressive resume :)  That's wonderful that you have come off your BP meds.

    • Alexandra McAllister June 12, 2013, 5:50 PM

      Yes, I am glad to be off the meds as well, Moira. Ganoderma helped me so much.

  • Carolyn Hughes June 12, 2013, 3:10 PM

    Ganoderma is indeed a blessing to mankind. I have tasted several fine products of ORGANO GOLD, and I thank God that it will officially be lunched in Nigeria in mid May, 2014, so that we, in this part of the world can also benefit from this blessing.

    • Alexandra McAllister April 27, 2014, 7:13 PM

      That is wonderful news, isn’t it, Solomon. I agree, Ganoderma is indeed a blessing.  I know in my personal life, it has helped me enormously, after my strokes.  So nice to connect with you here. 

  • Toyin January 28, 2015, 4:48 AM

    Dear Alexandra,

    This information is truly appreciated. I actually just got the products (black coffee, latte and I guess the green tea) and started off yesterday. I hope I will get the benefits as I decided on this because I want to go off blood pressure meds.

    Best Regards,
