Ganoderma Lucidum Fruiting Bodies
Ganoderma fruiting body is the general name of the whole strain of Ganoderma. It can be ground into powder or cut into pieces. It is mostly used in cook or soaked with water or wine. Ganoderma cap contains very rich in bioactive substances such as Ganoderma polysaccharides and triterpenoids Ganoderic acid. Ganoderma stipe is also discarded when producing Ganoderma series products, so the buyers usually choose Ganoderma without stipes.
Ganoderma Lucidum Extract
Ganoderma extract is obtained by extracting Ganoderma fruiting body with water and alcohol. Since it is bitter and easily oxidized and perishable, the storage conditions are strict. The polysaccharides and peptides contained in the water extract of Ganoderma have a positive effect on immunomodulation, anti-tumor, protection against radiotherapy and chemotherapy injury, sedation, analgesia, cardiac stimulating, anti-myocardial ischemia, antihypertension, blood sugar lowering, blood lipid regulation, hypoxia tolerance increasing, anti-oxidation, free radicals cleaning and anti-aging. Ganoderma alcohol extract and its triterpenoids have the functions of protecting the liver, anti-tumor, analgesia, anti-oxidation, scavenging free radicals, inhibition of histamine release, inhibition of the activity of human ACE, inhibition of cholesterol synthesis, inhibition of platelet aggregation and the like.

Why Ganoderma Spore Powder needs to be cell-wall broken?
Since the surface of the ganoderma spore has a double-layered hard shell, the active ingredients contained in the spore are wrapped inside and cannot be easily absorbed by the body. At present, there are several technologies of breaking the cell wall of ganoderma spore including bio-enzymatic, chemical and physical methods. The method with better results is low-temperature physical cell-wall breaking technology adopted by our company. It can achieve over 99% cell-wall breaking rate, which substantially enables the body to absorb and utilize the active ingredients of the spores.
What is Ganoderma Spore Powder?
Ganoderma spores are the powdery reproductive cells ejected from the cap of Ganoderma after the fruiting bodies become mature. Each spore is only 5-8 microns in diameter. The spore is rich in various bioactive substances such as Ganoderma polysaccharides, triterpenoids ganoderic acid and selenium.
Ganoderma Lucidum Spore Oil
Ganoderma lucidum spore oil is obtained by supercritical CO2 extraction of cell-wall broken Ganoderma lucidum spore powder. It is rich in triterpenoids ganoderic acid and unsaturated fatty acids and is the essence of Ganoderma lucidum spore powder.
Does Ganoderma spore powder taste bitter?
Pure Ganoderma spore powder is not bitter, and the fresh one exudes the unique aroma of Lingzhi. The compound spore powder to which Ganoderma extract powder is added has a bitter taste.
What is the difference between Ganoderma spore powder and Ganoderma fruiting body?
Ganoderma is a treasure of traditional Chinese medicine. The fruiting body of Ganoderma contains very rich polysaccharides, triterpenoids, proteins and various trace elements. The cell-wall broken Ganoderma spore powder is made with modern biotechnology to break the cell-wall of spores. It is processed under aseptic and low-temperature conditions to maintain the biological activity of active ingredients such as polysaccharides, peptides, amino acids and triterpenoids of Ganoderma spore powder. The content of triterpenoids in the cell-wall broken Ganoderma spore powder is higher, and the Ganoderma fruiting body after water extraction is rich in Ganoderma polysaccharides. Ganoderma spore and extract compound has better effects.
