Ask any coffee drinker and we’ll all tell you coffee is nature’s panacea. Not only does it give us just that right amount of an energy boost to keep us refreshed and productive in the morning, more and more research is coming out suggesting that it can have a variety of health benefits too. It’s packed with antioxidants, aids in burning fat, helps prevent liver disease, reduces the risk for certain cancers and type 2 diabetes and even gives us some of the essential nutrients we need to survive! How can coffee get any healthier than that you ask?
With the forming of ORGANO, thats how. Research and development teams from both the Organo Gold corporation and Coffee Connoisseur have come together to blend the energizing qualities of the coffee bean with the ancient health giving properties of ganoderma, or reishi mushroom. Led by ORGANO’s founder and CEO Bernardo Chua, they are working on advancing not only the enjoyment of coffee throughout the world but also the health of all those who drink it. Wikipedia has a lot of information about what Bernardo has done in his career up until now.
This reishi mushroom has been known by many names throughout the ages (Latin: Ganoderma Lucidium, Chinese: Lingzhi) and has been used for thousands of years across the world for its therapeutic and healing properties. As an important and most-sought after ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine, this fungus has often even been harvested to the point of near-extinction! In reading its traditional description as ‘the great healer’ it was easy to see that the medicine men and women of ancient times had a great deal of respect for its ability as an adaptogen, or a non-toxic substance that helps our bodies adapt to stress more easily, as well as an immune system strengthener.
There is an impressive and ever expanding body of research backing up these amazing effects! Even though the reishi mushroom is not very well known in the United States and the West it is in fact one of the most studied substances on the planet. Recent research has verified its anti-tumor, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and immune-stimulating properties so much so that doctors in China and Japan often use it along side, or even instead of, mainstream medical care depending on the severity of the case.
Now thanks to the development of reishi healthy coffee by visionary Bernardo Chua we can all take advantage of these health benefits every day. Mr. Chua’s has become famous across the health world for his commitment to making a quality reishi extract available to the public since 2004. Bernardo Chua is also known for expanding the company into Turkey recently. Throughout his career he has headed many companies focused on educating people about the merit of using reishi mushroom and has been able to expand the availability of this powerful healer to millions of people who did not have access to it before.
With his creation of ORGANO, Mr. Chua has made it both easy and convenient to take this wellness tonic daily, right in one of our favorite drinks. And by making a variety of flavors such as black, latte and mocha coffee, as well as a variety of other beverages including hot chocolate and tea, it is now a more propitious time than ever to ingest the ‘great healer’ of the ancients.
