Year of the Mushroom

As you may have heard on the Today Show, 2021 will be the year of the mushroom! We couldn’t agree more! 

Although used for thousands of years in traditional Asian cultures, many people across the United States are starting to take note of the functional benefits that mushrooms offer.

Registered Dietician and Certified Personal Trainer Nora Minno touted the mushroom as a “healthy and balanced” way to enjoy and celebrate everyday foods. She forecast that using mushrooms to naturally enrich a diet will be a major trend this year. Adding the healthy nutrients from mushrooms to even a beverage, such as enriched coffee, can establish a long-term healthy relationship with food that gives your body everything it needs without the fear or restrictions of being “on a diet.” 

While there are many varieties of mushrooms that can be beneficial to your diet, rich in antioxidants and vitamins, how could you pass up enriching your diet with the “King of Herbs” – Ganoderma lucidum? Popularly known as the Reishi mushroom, it is packed with more than 200 phytonutrients including a whopping 150 antioxidants. It also contains unique bioactive compounds that Minno calls “adaptogens.” She notes that these powerful bioactives can help the body fight its own stress response, making it a great tool in your “stress management toolkit.”

Gano Excel is proud to produce top-quality Ganoderma lucidum and Cordyceps mushrooms, now for over 25 years. Founder Mr. Leow Soon Seng has ingeniously combined it with everyday products such as coffee and other hot beverages, as well as new smart beverages that can be enjoyed all day long!

The best part is the taste! Gano Excel’s beverages retain the delicious flavors of coffee, chocolate, tea, cereal, and fruit, making it easy to add the incredible benefits of this rich, complex mushroom to foods and beverages you already enjoy.

We join Nora Minno in proclaiming that the year of the mushroom has already begun!  We can’t wait to see more of our neighbors, family and friends discover the amazing nutrition and wellness of Ganoderma lucidum during 2021.
