Ganoderma in Chinese traditional medicine stores
Go to any Oriental medicine store in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, you will also be offered to buy Ganoderma, most concentrated in Lan Ong Street. At first glance, you will be dazzled by all kinds of big and small reishi. The biggest one is a small hat, each containing 1kg or 2 mushrooms. Small ones are 15-20 pieces / kg. Then Ganoderma sliced, Ganoderma powder spread. The same lingzhi has the same color, size, weight, but there is an introductory store called Korean Ganoderma because it has the word KOREA stamped on the underside of the mushroom, offered at VND 1,500,000 / kg to 3,000,000. Go to another store, the same Ganoderma that is similar (but without the seal watermark KOREA) is offered for 400,000 VND / kg. Recently appeared again with type of sinking but price is only 400,000 VND / kg
Korean - Chinese Lingzhi is stamped with KOREA
As for sliced lingzhi, every shop says it is Chinese Ganoderma, there are shops that speak Korean, but the price is very soft, only 300,000 VND / kg to 400,000 VND / kg.
I was introduced by a person wearing a white blouse, on the chest of a shirt with the "VVC Oriental Medicine Specialist" sign: "Just buy it, here we only sell reishi from Korea, we will turn it into flour for doctors, when using only the water color, boiling is 15 minutes. " I asked, "Can Ganoderma be used?" The doctor replied, "Who used the residue for what, all of it has melted!".
From late 2002 to now, there are some people who carry very large pieces of Ganoderma, put in travel bags weaving to those with cancer, diabetes, degenerative spine etc ..., said precious medicine. recently discovered in the Central Highlands deep forest has been identified by scientists as ancient Ganoderma hundred years old, curing many incurable diseases in the last period. Price per tael (100g) from 120-150,000 VND depending on the type of small or large. In order to prove their introduction, they also brought a photocopy of articles about ancient Ganoderma published in Lao Dong newspaper and Health & Life newspaper.
According to scientists, Ganoderma has been woodized, the nutrients for treatment are no longer available. Moreover, wild mushrooms cannot control their toxicity, so they should not be used.
Determining the origin of Ganoderma
Someone brought me Ganoderma to ask me to distinguish: Which is Chinese, which is Korean? I replied: We can only distinguish ancient Ganoderma and Ganoderma cultivation. Anything grown in China, anything grown in Korea, even those who specialize in researching, classifying plants or specializing in testing medicinal herbs will suffer, because Ganoderma is grown in Japan, China, Korea, etc. ... not just one species. While Ganoderma lucidum alone has more than 45 different things. As for the Korean word KOREA, it is difficult to say that it is Korean. For that reason, every single type now closes the word KOREA.
