The search for precious medicinal herb to maintain health and delay ageing is part of Chinese culture since ancient time. They found these herbs in the wilds, forests and mountains.
One predominant Chinese ancestor, Sheng Nong, also known as the father of agriculture and medicine, wrote the medicinal classic - "Sheng Nong Ben Chao Jing" (Sheng Nong Herbal Classic) 2000 years ago.
This medicinal classic records and describes 365 herbs, animals and minerals for healing. It classified Ganoderma Lucidum as "superior herb" and stated, "long term consumption will promote longevity and make one look like a heavenly being".
The story goes that in ancient China, Emperor Qing Shi Wang set a court officer named Shu Fu and three thousand others to travel far away to look for the herb of immortality, Ganoderma.
This is just one story that reflects just how precious Ganoderma is. Another story is depicted in a literary classic, Madam White Snake.
The story describes how Madam White Snake trampled over hill and dale, overcoming many tribulations before finding Ganoderma Lucidum. This medicinal herb saved her husband, Shu Xian back to life.
In the history of Chinese civilization, if a hero is highly praised for a thousand year, he is indeed a truly remarkable person. Ganoderma Lucidum is merely a fungus. But its legend has been passed on for more than 2000 years.
