The king of Herbs as it is known in China and
Celestial Herb in Japan is Ganoderma. It is also known as Lingzhi in
China and Reishi in Japan.
Lingzhi is now widely researched across the globe by
many universities and research institutions and sterling work has been
done by China and Japan.
Revered for thousands of years and shrouded in
mystery, Lingzhi however was difficult to grow. After much research in
1970 a breakthrough was achieved in commercial cultivation. Still it
remains rare and cultivated in few countries like China, Japan, Malaysia
and Korea to name a few.

of bringing the benefits of the Lingzhi to the common man. More details

Main Health Giving Components
While the Linghzhi mushrooms are said to contain 252
active medicinal compounds, the two main components are:
- Germanium: Germanium can promote blood
circulation, can increase oxygen absorbing capability of the body and
keep sufficient oxygen in the body, improve metabolism and prevent
functional degeneration. Based on research germanium is the major
component of Lingzhi. The germanium contained in Lingzhi is 4-6 times
more than ginseng.
- Poly-saccharides: The poly saccharides can
increase antibody count which strengthens immunity. Poly saccharides
are the most active health enhancing ingredient for the body.
No wonder the Lingzhi mushrooms are called the
‘Celestial Herb’ by the Japanese for its health giving properties. Modern
science and cultivation methods have made this difficult to grow herb
available for the past decade or two for everyone to derive the benefits.
While there are thousands of research papers
available on the medicinal aspects of the Lingzhi this article primarily
is to highlight the health giving aspects of this wonderful herbal remedy
