The Benefits of Ganoderma Coffee
Ganoderma coffee is a powdered drink mix that typically contains instant coffee and the powdered extract of Ganoderma lucidum (a medicinal mushroom also known as “reishi” or “Lingzhi”). Other ingredients such as sugar, non-dairy creamer, and herbs may be included.
Beyond the pick-me-up that the coffee provides, It’s a beverage that some proponents say offers a range of health benefits and is sometimes used by people who would like to reduce their coffee intake but still boost their energy level.
Despite the marketing claims for the benefits of ganoderma coffee, however, there is no scientific support for the product’s health effects.
Why Do People Use Ganoderma Coffee?
Proponents claim that ganoderma coffee can boost immunity , help with weight loss, fight fatigue, improve memory, increase energy stamina, lower cholesterol, reduce inflammation , relieve stress, reverse the aging process, and stimulate circulation.
Ganoderma is also touted as a top source of antioxidants.
The Benefits of Ganoderma Coffee: Can It Help?
To date, no scientific studies have tested the health effects of ganoderma coffee. However, preliminary research indicates that ganoderma on its own may offer certain health benefits.
For instance, a 2016 review of five previously published studies concluded that Ganoderma lucidum “could be administered as an alternative adjunct to conventional treatment in consideration of its potential of enhancing tumour response and stimulating host immunity.” Published in The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, the report didn’t find sufficient evidence to justify the use of Ganoderma lucidum as a first-time cancer treatment.
In addition, research shows that drinking coffee, in general, may have some beneficial effects. For example, a 2006 report from Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition notes that coffee consumption may help prevent several chronic diseases (including diabites and Parkinson’s disease). However, the research review also found that coffee consumption is linked to increases in high blood pressure (a major risk factor for heart disease).
While ganoderma is sometimes said to help with high blood pressure and heart disease, a report published in The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in 2015 didn’t find evidence supporting the use of Ganoderma lucidum for the treatment of cardiovascular risk factors in people with type 2 diabetes.
