Q1. Are the benefits of Ganoderma Lucidum spore powder and Ganoderma powder the same?
Ganoderma powder is produced by pulverizing the Ganoderma, while Ganoderma Lucidum spore powder is the spores ejected from matured Ganoderma. The former is light brown in colour with a bitter flavour while the latter is a brown powder-like substance without the bitter flavour, which is richer in certain substances and nutrients. In particular, the spores provide Ganoderma polysaccharides, Ganoderma acid and Organogermanium compound that are more concentrated than Ganoderma powder. Therefore, Ganoderma Lucidum spore powder is better in boosting immunity.
Q2. What is Sporoderm-broken Ganoderma Lucidum Spore Powder?
Ganoderma Lucidum spores have two outer walls which are extremely difficult to be digested and not easily absorbed by the human body before being broken. Beijing Tong Ren Tang uses superior Physical Wall-Breaking Technique at low temperature to break the hard cell walls of Ganoderma Lucidum while preserving the maximum number of nutrients in Ganoderma Lucidum spores powder. The rate of spore wall breaking is over 99%*, enabling more efficient absorption of its nutrients by the human body.
