What is Ganoderma lucidum spore powder?

Ganoderma lucidum grows → Ganoderma lucidum matures → spores are ejected from the bottom of Ganoderma lucidum cap → spore powder is harvested → spore powder is selected → Low-temperature physical cell-wall breaking of spores→ GANOHERB cell-wall broken Ganoderma lucidum spore powder

Do you have the following misunderstandings about spore powder?

Misunderstanding 1: The bitter the Ganoderma lucidum spore powder, the better the quality.

Fact 1: Pure Ganoderma lucidum spore powder normally has no obvious bitter taste but has a scent of fungus fragrance. The spores will release spore oil after their cell walls are broken, so the cell-wall broken spore powder looks darker in color and is easy to stick into small pieces but still has no obvious bitterness.

Misunderstanding 2: The spore shell has no medicinal effect.

Fact 2: The surface of the Ganoderma lucidum spore has a double-layer hard shell. The outer layer is chitin, which is made up of Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides, amino acids, crude fiber, adenosine and other components while the inner layer is a kind of membrane rich in protein. Therefore, the spore shell is also very valuable for health care.


Misunderstanding 3: The spore shell hurts the stomach.

Fact 3: The diameter of a single spore is very small, even invisible to the naked eye. After the cell-wall (shell) is broken, the spore is even smaller. Therefore, it is impossible to damage the intestines like walnut skin. On the contrary, the active ingredients contained in the spore shell can protect or repair the gastric mucosa.

Misunderstanding 4: The faster the spore powder dissolves in boiling water, the better the quality.

Fact 4: Professor Zhi-Bin Lin from Peking University Health Science Center clearly mentioned that the spore powder is insoluble in water. The spore powder forms a kind of suspension after being mixed with water. If stratification occurs after the suspension is left to stand for a period of time, the more spore powder deposited below, the better the quality.

How to choose cell-wall broken Ganoderma lucidum spore powder?

1.Look at the place of origin: whether it is located in the authentic production area of Mount Wuyi.

Mount Wuyi is the main authentic production area of log-cultivated Ganoderma lucidum in China. The Ganoderma lucidum cultivated on logs in imitative wild conditions here is hailed as the “standard traditional Chinese medicinal material” by the traditional Chinese medicine field.

cell-wall-32.Look at the raw material: whether it has been certified by China, the US, the EU and Japan.
Only Ganoderma lucidum raw materials organically grown in the whole process can demonstrate that the final products are natural and pure. If raw materials can pass the organic certification of China, the US, Japan and the EU at the same time, the quality of such final products is better.

3.Look at the standard: whether the harvest follows the national standard.
Ganoderma lucidum spore powder is very tiny and difficult to collect. Only by collecting spore powder in accordance with national standards can the fullness, freshness and purity of the spore powder be guaranteed.

4.Look at the process: low temperature physical cell-wall breaking is the key.
There are many ways to break the cell walls of spores, but only the technology of physical breaking of the cell walls of the spores at low temperatures can ensure that the cell-wall breaking rate reaches 99% and such cell-wall broken spores are free of oxidation and pollution.

5.Look at the qualifications: the more international qualifications on the label, the more guaranteed the product.
Only a well-developed quality control system can ensure the quality and safety of products. GANOHERB has passed more than ten international certifications such as ISO: 22000, HACCP and HALAL for many consecutive years.
