Commonly referred to as reish, Ganoderma Lucidum is a hard mushroom that I thought I should introduce you too..:)) You're Welcome!

This herb is used in Chinese medicine to boost health as a whole, and enhance longevity.

According to scientists, this Mushroom could be holding the key to fighting obesity. More of that on a separate post, if you'd like me to ... 'Investigate!'... apparently though, ganoderma has been traditionally used for a variety of different medical treatments, including weight loss as an herbal food supplement. Ganoderma is widely used in Asia and is gaining notoriety in the Western World. The Ganoderma Lucidum species is the one that I am familiar with but there are many different species of these mushrooms including the parasitic fungus Ganoderma Tsugae. 

I am sharing this with you because for the pass 6 weeks or so, I have been consuming this mushroom in my hot beverages from Organo Gold.

Okay, what makes Organo Coffee and Hot Choc different, is that they but the actual Ganoderma Lucidum in all their products.

Organic Ganoderma by Organo


The background story is that ORGANO only uses organic Ganoderma produced by the lasgest certified organic ganoderma plantations in the world. Organo then add it in all their products range that includes: Gourmet Black Coffee, Latte, Mocha, Green Tea and they also have a personal care range that I'm yet to try. 



What I am consuming every day though is the Hot Chocolate..:)) About 6 weeks ago, I was still going through my daily radiotherapy after receiving 6 months of intensive combination of 3 chemo drugs that affected my liver and kidneys at the time.

As you can imagine my body was not coping well  with it all at this point. I couldn't sleep at night and was constantly in pain. My consultant at the Oncology was concerned as I was struggling with the lack of sleep for a while, so he advised that I go on medication.

A friend of mine came to visit and brought me flowers and 1 box of Organo black coffee and 1 box of Organo chocolate. I'm not a coffee drinker so I gravitated towards the cocoa. That same night I slept like a babe, and I've been sleeping well since. I incorporated these drinks in my diet and the 100% raw Organo Ganoderma Lucidum Capsules (2 - 3 times a day) I know! ..:)) I've been through so much, so I'm just going for it. The pain is now gone as well, my stamina is remarkable even though I'm still going through chemo. I sleep great. No need for sleeping pills after all!

If you are thinking I'd like to try this. Drop me a line.

My favourite smoothy is something delicious I created with the Organo choc. I might put the recipe here at some point.

Look after yourselves!

A Plus.X
