Ganoderma lucidum is a large, woody, and tough mushroom used for various herbal remedies. It is more commonly known as reishi or lingzhi. Ganoderma extract is a potent fungus which has been used in Chinese herbal medicine for well over two thousand years. Within traditional Chinese medicine, the fungus is sometimes referred to as the ‘elixir of immortality.’ It is especially good at modifying the immune system by increasing it when weakened, or lowering it when it is too active.

It is treat as the raw material of a ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide capsule, tablet, granule and other kinds of health care products, functional food, beverages.
