We know there’s nothing like a good cup of your favorite OG beverage to provide you with an excellent source of antioxidants. After trying it out, there’s no wonder why Ganoderma is known as ‘The King of Herbs,’ and why it has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese culture to promote wellness and help support your immune system.
But, do you know what makes OG’s Ganoderma unique?
Let us tell you some facts about it that will make you go crazy over it!
The Ganoderma Mushroom is native to the Wuyi Mountains and guess what… We bring it directly from there! Modern technologies allow it to be cultivated in other regions of the world, but we’d chosen to partner with a plantation and production company native to this same area.
Contrary to some companies that grow their Ganoderma from plastic bags in labs, we produce only Organic Ganoderma. This means that they’ve created the perfect environmental conditions for the mushrooms to sprout out from logs, undisturbed; just as they would grow naturally in the Wuyi Mountains maple woods with the benefits of the nutrients of a rich soil.
Ganoderma is harvested when it reaches maturity to be part of our hot beverages and mixes. But we are not always so patient, and sometimes we collect the Mycelium when it is only 18-days old, to take advantage of the antioxidant properties of the minerals on its roots. We don’t let anything go to waste, so we use the spores, which contain higher concentrations of polysaccharides, triterpenes, and selenium, the beneficial compounds of Ganoderma with antioxidants, known to have anti-inflammatory properties.
These spores don’t grow in trees (figuratively speaking). The mushroom releases them to the environment when it reaches maturity. The only way for our bodies to digest the nutrients inside them is to crack their inner and outer shell. While many companies have the technology to crack open 2% to 7% of their spores, crushing them , ORGANO™ has the unique system to ensure our spore powder is composed of 99.9% open spores without crushing these tender spores.
Thanks to our harvesting methods, our Ganoderma is certified to be 100% organic by ECOCERT, COFCC, and USDA Organic. It has also certifications for Good Manufacturing Practices, as well as a Halal and Kosher product.
