What are Ganoderma Spores?

It is actually a type of seedling, released after the maturity stage of Ganoderma, when the parent develops a cap. Ganoderma spores consists of double layered Chitin and Beta-D-glucan which mades its outer shell, and inside of it Ganoderma Spore Oil. The outer shell is extremely tough and extremely hard to break open; even when one manages to break open the shell to access its content, ganoderma spore oil can be easily oxidized and become unusable if not treated properly. It has been rumored that Ganoderma powder's medicinal properties are much stronger than normal Ganoderma; however that is overrated. In the history of Chinese medicine, the use of Ganoderma powder is only known in the past few years, and the understanding is not to its entirety.

Ganoderma Spore Shell Breaking includes 3 core types:

1. Mechanical (Pressurized/Grinding): Using Pressure and Grinding to achieve shell breaking, success rate is extremely low; this method has no practical value.

2. Heating through Infared: Heating the shell to achieve breaking then to collect its content. It is a huge mystery as to whether heating Spore Oil would effect its effectiveness.

3. Disintegration: Through fermentation process to melt the outer shell, thereby extracting its content. However this may effect the composition of spore oil.

Studies suggest that Ganoderma Spore Oil contains anti-carcinogenic properties. However the daily required intake is extremely high. Such method of treatment is low in practicality.
