Benefits Of Ganoderma
Ganoderma is a genus of polypores that are found growing on the wood of various trees. The genus gandoderma is different from the other varieties of polypores due to the presence of double walled basidiospore. There are two sections of this genus, namely Ganoderma, which has a shiny cap surface for e.g. Ganoderma lucidum. The other is the Elfvingia, which has a dull cap surface, for e.g. Ganoderma applanatum. There are numerous benefits associated with the use of both varieties of gandoderma. Some of these benefits include:

Beneficial to the heart.
The intake of gandoderma helps to reduce body fat, cholesterol and aids in unclogging the fatty deposit from the arteries. The fragmentation of platelets causes blockages in the circulatory system and offers resistance to the flow of blood. Gandoderma prevents this fragmentation and thus allows free flow of blood. Thus, it is quite beneficial for the heart.
Beneficial to the respiratory system.
