The chemical components of Ganoderma lucidum mainly contain ergosterol 0.3% to 0.4%, fungal lysozyme and acid protease, L-mannitol, and xylitol. The water-soluble extract contains water-soluble proteins, aspartic acid, glutamic acid, arginine, lysine, leucine, alanine, tryptophan, threonine, proline, methionine, Phenylalanine, serine and other amino acids, polypeptides and polysaccharides. It still contains resin, lactone, coumarin, etc.
Zizhi contains ergosterol, and the organic acids are citric acid and fumaric acid. In addition, it contains amino acids, glucose, polysaccharides, resins and mannitol. Generally, Ganoderma lucidum has reactions such as alkaloids, sterols, lactones, coumarin, acidic resins, amino acids, oils, and reducing substances.
The chemical composition of Ganoderma lucidum is relatively complex, and it varies with the strains used, the origin of the strains, the cultivation method, the extraction process, and the preparation method. The fruiting bodies, mycelia and spores of Ganoderma lucidum contain polysaccharides, nucleosides, furan derivatives, steroids, alkaloids, proteins, polypeptides, amino acids, triterpenes, sesquiterpenes, organic Germanium, inorganic salts, etc. Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide is one of the main active ingredients of Ganoderma lucidum, which has anti-tumor, immune regulation, hypoglycemic, anti-oxidation, hypolipidemic and anti-aging effects. Ganoderma lucidum contains no less than a hundred kinds of triterpenoids, among which tetracyclic triterpenes are the main ones. The bitterness of Ganoderma lucidum is related to the triterpenes contained in it. Triterpenoids are also one of the active components of Ganoderma lucidum, which have cytotoxic effects on human liver cancer cells, can also inhibit the release of histamine, and have hepatoprotective and anti-allergic effects.
Source of medicinal materials
It is the dry fruiting body of Chizhi or Zizhi, a fungus of Polyporaceae. Harvest throughout the year, remove impurities, cut off the lower stipe with dead wood, silt or culture medium, and dry in the shade or at 40-50°C. It is a fungus that lives on the roots of oak and other broad-leaved trees. Umbrella-shaped, hard, woody, with a kidney-shaped or semicircular cap, purple-brown with lacquer-like luster. It is distributed all over the place. Recently, it has been artificially cultured, and the shape of the cultured product varies, but its curative effect is the same.
We can manufacture and process raw material according to the specifications of our customer into different sizes and extracts.
We implement strict quality control on raw material collection, production, delivery and storage stages. Furthermore, based on clients’ bespoke requirements, we also analyze the heavy metal, pesticide residue, and also other factors according to professional standards such as Chinese Pharmacopoeia, Japanese Pharmacopoeia and European Pharmacopoeia etc., to ensure the safety of our final products.
The quality and effect of plants could be various due to different environments which they live in, e.g. sunshine durations and climates, etc. Hence the history and suitability of origins for botanical materials are extremely important. We commit to selecting authentic materials form their corresponding origins, taking customized requirements into accounts.
We have long-term co-operated farms for raw materials, monitor the whole procedure from cultivation to harvest and set out standards for material processing. We take detailed records on each step, which enables us to trace products from the very beginning to the end.
