I was introduced to Organo Gold and the Ganoderma Lucidum Mushroom by my friend Anne from Houston Texas.

Anne was diagnosed with cancer a little over a year ago and has been going through intensive struggles… surgery, chemotherapy.  Just a few months ago she started using the Organo Gold Coffee with the Ganoderma Lucidum Mushroom.

Her Dr. says that she is the only patient in the chemotherapy program that has actually gained weight and not only has not lost hair, but has hair growing back. He is quite impressed and says “I don’t know what you are doing, but keep doing it.”

I did some research and found this article on PubMed.gov.

Integr Cancer Ther. 2003 Dec;2(4):358-64.

Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi) in cancer treatment.

Abstract
The popular edible mushroom Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi) has been widely used for the general promotion of health and longevity in Asian countries. The dried powder of Ganoderma lucidum was popular as a cancer chemotherapy agent in ancient China. The authors recently demonstrated that Ganoderma lucidum inhibits constitutively active transcription factors nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB) and AP-1, which resulted in the inhibition of expression of urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) and its receptor uPAR. Ganoderma lucidum also suppressed cell adhesion and cell migration of highly invasive breast and prostate cancer cells, suggesting its potency to reduce tumor invasiveness. Thus, Ganoderma lucidum clearly demonstrates anticancer activity in experiments with cancer cells and has possible therapeutic potential as a dietary supplement for an alternative therapy for breast and prostate cancer…..

She is also taking the 100% Certified Organic Ganoderma Lucidum spore powder, which is available in capsules from Organo Gold.
