GanodermaGOLD™ is South Africa’s premium dual-extract Reishi product.
Our proprietary growing and extraction methods deliver the ONLY dual extract, antler, Ganoderma lucidum product in South Africa.
It is cultivated in South Africa for South Africans! Mushroom Guru has perfected a proprietary growing method and developed South Africa’s first pure Reishi double extract range.
Ganoderma lucidum is also known as Lingzhi in China and Reishi in Japan, and has been used for its medicinal properties for more than 2,000 years. This extraordinary fungus is highly effective as an adaptogen and therefore regulates, balance and harmonises the body and all its complex systems.
This fungus develops a mushroom that is red in colour, smooth to the touch and astoundingly beautiful, yet incredibly bitter. Therefore, to be able to experience the benefits of this medicinal mushroom, you would either need to steep it in water and drink the hot water extraction as a tea, or prepare an alcohol (ethanol) extraction to make certain compounds (Ganoderic acid and triterpenoids) available for digestion.
We use two highly effective extraction methods in producing our Double Extract, MG-LZ8.
MG-LZ8 is the corner stone of our GanodermaGOLD™ product range and is the Double Extract that is used in all our Reishi products. The name LZ8 (Ling Zhi-8) was given to an immunomodulatory protein, isolated from Ganoderma lucidum. MG is the abbreviation for Mushroom Guru, together they make up the Double Extract we call MG-LZ8.
