THE GANODERMA

DIFFERENCE:

From Ground To Cup

What makes ORGANO™ products so special?

Simply, put it’s the Ganoderma; the gold behind ORGANO

The King of Herbs

For thousands of years, Ganoderma lucidum has been recognised by many as the highest ranked of all herbs. The Chinese name for Ganoderma, means “spiritual potency”, while the Japanese name, Reishi, can be translated as “King of Herbs”. Many ancient civilizations used mushrooms for more than just food. They believed mushrooms had significant health benefits.

Finding the Fungus

Ganoderma lucidum is a mushroom that is not used in cooking, but is used for many benefits in traditional Asian culture, and can be found in supplements, skin care and a broad range of everyday products around the world.

The Ganoderma Mushroom is native to the Wuyi Mountains and guess what… We bring it directly from there! Modern technologies allow it to be cultivated in other regions of the world, but we’d chosen to partner with a plantation and production company native to this same area.

The Wonder Mushroom

Ganoderma is a fantastic-looking mushroom and grow on wood, mostly out of large trees (living or dead) in forests in the more tropical regions of Asia.

Their long brown stems and orange-coloured caps make them a spectacular sight, but in the wild they can be hard to see because they thrive in such heavily forested areas. At ORGANO™, we source only the finest quality Ganoderma, grown undisturbed on logs high in the Wuyi mountains of China’s Fuzhou region


 

What makes our products so special?....

.

Contrary to some companies that grow their Ganoderma from plastic bags in labs, we produce only Organic Ganoderma grown in perfect environmental conditions for the mushrooms to sprout out from logs, undisturbed; just as they would grow naturally in the Wuyi Mountains maple woods with the benefits of the nutrients of a rich soil.

Ganoderma is harvested when it reaches maturity to be part of our hot beverages and mixes. But we are not always so patient, and sometimes we collect the Mycelium when it is only 18-days old, to take advantage of the antioxidant properties of the minerals on its roots. We don’t let anything go to waste, so we use the spores, which contain higher concentrations of polysaccharides, triterpenes, and selenium, the beneficial compounds of Ganoderma with antioxidants, known to have anti-inflammatory properties.

These spores don’t grow in trees (figuratively speaking). The mushroom releases them to the environment when it reaches maturity. The only way for our bodies to digest the nutrients inside them is to crack their inner and outer shell. While many companies have the technology to crack open 2% to 7% of their spores, crushing them, ORGANO™ has the unique system to ensure our spore powder is composed of 99.9% open spores without crushing these tender spores.

Thanks to our harvesting methods, our Ganoderma is certified to be 100% organic by ECOCERT, COFCC, and USDA Organic. It has also certifications for Good Manufacturing Practices, as well as a Halal and Kosher product.
