The ingredient that makes our coffee healthy is Ganoderma Lucidum, also known as Reishi and Linghzi. It has been called the King of Herbs in Chinese medicine for thousands of years and is given to every cancer patient in Japan. It is the highest rated herb in Chinese medicine. There have been many third party studies done on the affects of Ganoderma Lucidum. You can search them online. One of the primary health benefits of our coffee is that it is totally ph balanced in the body. All other coffees have a corrosive acid affect in the body, often causing heartburn and other stomach problems. You will not get that with this coffee.
