History of Ganoderma (AKA. The "King of Herbs")

Ganoderma Lucidum has over 5,000 years of history.  Since the ancient times, it had been called the miraculous herb, precious herb, and an herb for life.  It was also treated as a "panacea" tribute for emperors and later earned the nickname "supernatural eastern mushroom" from people of the west.

Ancient records showed that Ganoderma Lucidum grew in the imperial palace, which is said to account for peace during the Handi-Wudi Epoch.  A man named Pengzu who was from Wuyi Mountain was said to have lived for hundreds of years, with the face of a child, never looking old, and owed it to ganoderma lucidum.  He said, he kept himself in good health by taking Ganoderma Lucidum, drinking the chute and living in reclusion.

The virtues of Ganoderma (Lingshi, Reishi) have been known since ancient times in China and first documented during the reign of Fu Xi (2952-2836 BC).

The Infamous Seng Nong is said to have discovered teh beneficial virtues of plants by testing hundreds of spcies. "Seng Nong's Herbal Classic" is considered to be the earliest manuscript on Chinese Materia Medica and is still today the foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Oriental medicine in general. The document describes Ganoderma Lucidum in detail: among 365 specieis of plants, roots, wood, fur, animals and stones, divided into three grades, Ganoderma is listed as the highest rank- No.1 of the first of "Superior Herbs."

Six species of Ganoderma, differentiated by color, are mentioned in the Seng Nong,classic. Li Shi Zhen, a famous medical scholoar duriing the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), fully researched and concretely documented the indications of the six species.  The work of Li was republished in 1956, and translated into several foreign launguages including Japanese, English, French, German, Russian and Latin.  This book is regarded as the cornerstone of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

To find Ganoderma in ancient times, people had to go high up on the mountains and deep into forrests to harvest this most valuable herb. The discovery of Ganoderma led to wide-spread celebration. Ganoderma was so valued it was used almost exclusively by Emperors and by highly ranked courtesans.


Extracting the primary healthful essense was a long process of either boiling the mushrooms for hours or soaking them in alcohol for weeks. This created a drink full of the active ingredients needed to promote good health. Fortunately, there is a better way today.

Controlled cultivation of Ganoderma had been attemted by many since ancient times in China, but did not give satisfactory results. In 1971, Japanese researcher Yukio Naoi of Kyoto University found ways to cultivate Ganoderma in quantity with consistent quality. This method has led to the growth in production of Ganoderma and allowed the general population to discover its power. Today, an estimated 4,300 tons of Ganoderma is produced yearly worldwide, with China producing 3,000 tons followed by Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and Sri Lanka.
