Wild Ganoderma

It is traditionally known that wild ganoderma is the most valuable. The timeframe of harvesting Ganoderma is crucial to its healing effectiveness. The level of active compounds contained in Ganoderma is different according to its growing environment.

Wild Ganoderma is hard to find, and even harder to control its growing conditions. Therefore product quality can be easily compromised. Without a controlled environment, Ganoderma can easily be polluted with pesticides and contaminated with microorganisms.

If Wild Ganoderma is not harvested after it matures, its compounds will decompose or even lignify and become 'wooden'. What was known to be "thousand year old Ganoderma" is actually not edible.

With over a decade of expertise in Ganoderma, Professor S.W. Chiu points out that the idea that wild ganoderma 'absorbs' the essence of nature to create the highest quality and best level of nutrition is not true. Since the environment it grows in is uncontrolled, paired with the unknown factor of the originality of its spores; it is not possible to assure its quality to be consistent. In terms of mass productivity, cultivation by man is is the most recommended method; whether it be wild or cultivated ganoderma, the efficacy is the same; only the latter can be guaranteed to produce consistent, quality results.
