“Ganoderma Lucidum proponents claim that it bears the characteristics of a preventative adaptogen which serves to improve general health and body functions with no side-effects. Ginseng is currently more widely-used as an adaptogen in Western medicine than Ganoderma, but both are categorized in traditional Chinese medicine texts as supplements with the greatest potential for medical efficacy.” (Japan Reishi Association)
