Dear visitor, this is a machine-translated article. It makes perfect sense in its original language (Czech), and is fully backed by independent scientific literature. The translation, though, is far from perfect and takes patience and imagination, if you decide to read it.

What is called glossy gloss (Ganoderma lucidum)

The good reputation of glossy glass leads to the fact that products with the glossy gloss or Ganoderma lucidum label are not in the market. But we need to keep an eye on what exactly hides under this sticker. In principle, there are four categories of products called Ganoderma :

  1. Dried fennel glossy glossy.
    The only traditional way to use glans is to use dried fruit and extract from it , whether alone or mixed with other medicines. It can be whole, cut, or powdered. The powder may either be free or packaged in capsules, which are referred to as powdered trunk. Higher active substance content in the fungal preparation is achieved by extraction. Maternal extracts may be either liquid or concentrated in powder form. Lesklokorka is rare in nature, and therefore, the market for sale is practically always grown on wooden blocks in special groves .
  2. Products from mycelium and primordia.
    Mycelium here means a gloss of glossy gloss grown in vitro (ie artificially). Lesklokorka is long-lived, and cultivation of her mycelium in vitro makes the production of mushroom biomass shortened to several days. The word primordium (germ) describes the bumps that begin to appear on the surface of the agar after about 7 days of growth. Of these, under normal circumstances later, a ferret would grow. Mycelium and primordium are then processed by extraction and packaged in the form of capsules or tablets. In traditional Chinese medicine, this method of production has no support.
  3. Glossy glossy shiny powder.
    This is not a traditional product. In most cases, the spraying dust is obtained as a by-product of the cultivation of the crops, under which they accumulate in each growing plant during their growth. Although the spraying powder contains similar active substances to the fungus, they are sealed in the spore (sporoderm) and are thus less available. Quantitatively contains more fats and fewer proteoglycans (specific "polysaccharides"). Its advantage is good granulometry: a small, uniform size, making it suitable for cosmetics eg as a powder.
  4. Products with the addition of shiny gloss: coffee, toothpaste, blends, etc.
    The effectiveness of these products (as compared to conventional powdered fruit) depends on the amount and quality in which glossy gloss has been added. In addition, products containing other active ingredients (eg caffeine with glossy coffee) will also be used, which should be taken into account when using them. These products are usually not intended for treatment, and the gloss skin contained therein tends to be of secondary importance with respect to the main function of the article.

Another source of indeterminacy is taxonomy, or rather a specific species determination within the taxa Ganoderma lucidum agg. , Which may affect the content of the active substances.
