Ganoderma Lucidum, a miracle of the nature

Organic Germanium is a mineral that is present in many therapeutic herbs like garlic,aloe vera, chlorella, ginseng and so on. However it is found abundant in Ganoderma.

The mineral helps to deliver oxygen to the cells, it also improves tissues function and enhancing one's overall health. The clinical report of the Japan Cancer Association correlated organic germanium with lowering of blood pressure. The research even demonstrated the decrease in Retinal or Eye blood pressure in patients taking the mineral. This translates to better eye health for the diabetics and the elderly. Other studies show that organic germanium improves the Immune Functions by induces the production of interferon level according to the Journal of interferon Research published in 1984. It has an anti-tumor effect according to Japanese research paper.

Many ganoderma researchers have claimed that Ganoderma has the advantage of having the highest concentration pf organic germanium among the therapeutic herbs today. According to Dr Asai in
Japan: Ganoderma has 800-2000ppm; Ginseng 250-320ppm; Garlic 754 ppm; Aloe vera 77 ppm; Chorella 76 ppm.

In my opinion, any wholesome food, a simple example an orange, one of the important vitamins in an orange is vitamin C. However, this vitamin C is in the orange, we cannot measure in weight how many mg of Vitamin C is in an orange. When we take oranges as a whole, no matter how many oranges we are taking, we will Not be overdose of Vitamin C because it is in the wholesome form. However, if we extract the vitamin C from the orange into VITAMIN C pills, then we are able to measure the amount of vitamin C in mg. The process of extract of vitamin C disturb the nature of the food, and some chemicals has to be added to stable the Vitamin C, this can cause Vitamin C over dose and side effects.

The same principal applies in Ganoderma. All the important nutrients are found in the spores of ganoderma. It is a wholesome food, the concentration Organic Germanium depends very much on:
1. Ganoderma Species
2. Age of ganoderma
3. Method of extraction of spores
4. Concentration of the spores
5. Method of cracking the shells of the spore to improve bio-availability of absorption of nutrients

DXN uses the Red mushroom, and uses tissues culture from a Healthy Mother plant to produce healthy mushrooms. Mushrooms mature at 3 months old and need to be harvested st the right time; otherwise the spores will fly away for reproduction purpose, and we will loose the spores, which is the main concentration of the Ganoderma nutrients.

DXN uses cold method to dehydrate the mushroom, and uses DXN own technology to separate the fiber and the spores; the concentration of the mushroom is 20:1 (20 kg mushroom obtain 1 kg spores)

DXN uses own technology to crack the shell of the spore without using any heat, as heat can destroy most of the nutrients in ganoderma.

You are rest assured DXN Ganoderma contains high concentration of NUTRIENTS for healing purpose, I have used it for 11 years not only to my needy customers, but my family members have benefited, especially my father who was pronounced by medical doctor to have only 3 months to live because of late stage prostate cancer, today he is still alive because I belief in DXN Ganoderma!
