#Snoring #SpaandWellness #healthSupplement
More Ganoderma extract supplement is available in the market due to its increasing popularity. This ranges from Ganoderma coffee to Ganoderma extract capsule. And all these supplements are claimed to have "amazing" healing ability.
However, you may be disappointed with most of the Ganoderma products. To really benefit from Ganoderma herb, you must know how to choose the superior grade. Below are several factors you must consider before buying Ganoderma supplement.
1) Ganoderma extract or grinding
Some company simply grinds this herb into powder form. But some uses high technology extraction method to extract only its essences into powder form.
Extraction concentration can be as high as 15 to 1. That means, 1000kg of this fungus is extracted to only 65kg. One capsule of Ganoderma extract at 15 to 1 concentration is equivalent to 15 capsules of the grinded one.
Needless to say, Ganoderma supplement using extraction method is many times more effective than grinding method.
2) Capsulated or log wood cultivation
Most Ganodermas are capsulated (vacuum packing) cultivated using wooden crams and chemicals. This produces softer fruit body with less active components for effective health improvement.
Because of the chemicals used, some may even be contaminated with toxics and even heavy metals such as mercury.
Meanwhile, log wood cultivated Ganoderma is a few times more potent in its medicinal values. It is purer with higher content of beneficial active components.
However, this cultivation method is much more expensive in term of the space used and time required. So, many manufacturers prefer to use capsulated cultivated Ganoderma instead. But if you don't feel any better with capsulated Ganoderma, you may want to try log wood Ganoderma.
3) Ganoderma spore powder
Spore powder is the most precious part of Ganoderma herb with the most concentration of active components like Organic Germanium, Polysaccharides and Triterpenes.
You can choose Ganoderma extract with spore powder for better results. Make sure the spore shell is cracked open to release its essences.
4) International quality certification
Of course, you would better select a manufacturer with experience and excellent production quality control. This ensures the quality consistence of their supplement product all the time.
5) Percentage of Ganoderma extract
Some manufacturer put only a small fraction of Ganoderma into their herbal supplement, mixed with other ingredients. As such, the healing effect is far less than the pure one.
However, some acclaimed pure Ganoderma extract may not be pure at all. Maybe 20% is Ganoderma and the rest is filler. This is another point of concern – the honesty and credibility of manufacturer.
How to test Ganoderma herb supplement
Forget about all the claims by manufacturer on how pure and how good their Ganoderma herbal product is. Follow these simple steps for accurate Ganoderma test for its efficacy.
First, fill a glass with water and pour in some cooking oil such as olive oil. Then, open up a Ganoderma extract capsule and spread some of its powder on top of the oil surface.
The powder will float on the oil surface. Here comes the first test point. See whether the extract powder can slowly penetrate the oil. This shows its ability to pass through fats and cholesterol clot in our blood vessel wall and cleanses it.
For second Ganoderma test point, leave it for around 10 days and take a look. Good Ganoderma extract blends evenly with the water after a few days. The oil surface is clear of any mold. This means it has strong germ fighting ability.
Poor Ganoderma extract will continue to float on the oil surface. Take a closer look and you can see mold on the surface. It has weak germ fighting ability.
Now, here's the third test point for Ganoderma spores. Take a look at the bottom of the glass. The spore powder is the white substance deposited at the bottom. If you can hardly see Ganoderma spore, you can expect very less healing effects.
