A spore is a seed with which plants reproduce. Ganoderma spores refer to powder that a ripe ganoderma mushroom releases. After the seeding process, ganoderma may take 5 months to 1 year to produce the spore powder on its top. This powder which consists of small seeds contains wonderful curative properties and is the essence of ganoderma mushroom. It has more curative powers than the body of ganoderma. Therefore, maximum care is observed in protecting this powder being blown away by winds.
Spores can not be taken and digested in their original or raw form because of tough spore shell. It is necessary to remove the outer covering of the spores. Therefore, the hard shell is removed through a chromatographic process. . Then, they are packed after undergoing a purification and sterilization process. During all this process, very low temperature is maintained to keep the high curative properties of the spores intact. Polysaccharides, organic germanium, triterpenes and superoxide dismutase
are the four main curative components of ganoderma spores . In addition to these four main components, ganoderma spores contain amino acids, alkaloids, soya bean protein, sterols, vitamins, zinc, chromium and calcium. In order to understand the curative properties of ganoderma spores, let us see the main nutritional components of in the spores.
Polysaccharides are the complex carbohydrates. The function of gynoderma polysaccharides is that they improve allergy and support human immune system.
Triterpenes are natural steroids found in a wide variety of plants, insects and animals. They are nature’s way to deal with inflammation effectively. Ganoderma triterpenes have anti-inflammatory and calming effects. In addition, ganoderma triterpenes improve liver functions and blood pressure.
Organic germanium is a substance that forms an important part in the nutritional treatment of serious and fatal diseases, the treatment of which may have serious side-effects. It can bring healing effects by bringing positive changes in biological response of body to tumors. Actually, it does not kill malignant cancer cells but strengthens human immune system, making it strong enough to stand the treatment side-effects. Thus ganoderma organic germanium reduces fatigue by restoring energy and improves metabolism.
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme with anti-wrinkle and anti-aging properties, found in nearly all green vegetables. It repairs cells and reduces the damage done to them. It acts as both an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory in the body, neutralizing the free radicals that can cause wrinkles. This enzyme is being used in many anti-wrinkle products. Ganoderma increases the level of SOD in human body and restores its youthfulness.
With all these curative components, we can say that ganoderma spores contain nutrients which are crucial and invaluable to human health. Moreover, with all these nutrients ganoderma spores exercise their wide ranging restorative powers on all aspects of human health. They heal a body not only for a given disease but also address other ailments which may turn into serious diseases in future. Thus, the curative powers of the spores work for total well being of a body and not just individual ailments.
