      • I would have to ask, do you use any salt? do you buy products with salt? if so you are consuming it anyway! In moderation,like most things it is safe and has been around since the beginning of time. there are a lot bigger hazardous to worry about being consumed at a much higher and damaging rate!

        • You are confusing the salt that we know as table salt with compounds scientifically known as salts.

          Table salt is sodium chloride.

          Not all “salts” are edible or safe.

    • Most of these ingredients are Very Dangerous and are Monsanto Products. I’d even bet the Gandoerma is a GMO.
      Pentasodium Triphosphate<— found in Detergents. This would explain the "detoxifying"

  1. My question is why is sodium aluminum silicate in the product in the first place?

    • Aluminum is commonly used as a preservative. Many products which may not be consumed soon after production will contain Aluminum-based compounds to keep it “fresh”. When I learned about possible links between Aluminum and Alzheimers, I became very interested to see how many products I consume daily which has it. I was amazed that even the muffins I bought from the local grocery store (supposedly freshly-made) contained Aluminum compounds. When you visit your local grocer, you should take a look at the ingredients labels on the back…you will be shocked how much metal-based products we are consuming!

    • Absolutely. Coupled with a proper diet and good exercise, Ganoderma coffee can be very good for weight loss.

  2. I have an Organo Gold package in fron of me and it has aluminum sodium silicate in it and Ganaderma. How can this be good or ok? Is there a caffeine free coffee with Ganaderma?

    • All of the ganoderma coffee I have seen have about the same amount of caffeine as regular coffee. The ganoderma helps neutralize some of the negative effects of the caffeine.

  3. How come you only posted about the coffee? How about its tea? Was this just a blog to try and sell a different type of gamoderma beverage? Thanks for the coffee information though. I’ll ask my biology and chemistry profs about this.

    • This blog is about mushroom coffee. There are two main types: Real brewed coffee with 14 mushrooms and instant ganoderma coffee.

      OrGano Gold green tea is, I believe, certified organic.

  4. Everybody should do researches before making any kind of statements. I check on for scientif facts about it and i find a study from 1994 where they suggest the investigation of the possible use of silicates as a therapeutic agent in Alzheimers pacients. You can check the cientific study here: . The name of study is: Precipitation and characterization of an aluminosilicate from AlCl3-Na2SiO3-HCl in serum, of interest for Alzheimer disease.

    • There are studies that indicate a link to aluminum and Alzheimer’s.

      Do you have information that is in plain English that does not require a PhD to understand?

    • The study mentioned by Nuno Andrade is investigating the use of sodium silicate to REMOVE aluminum from the patient! Al has for about 25 years been suspected of playing a role in CAUSING Alzheimers, and there are good reasons for this suspicion!

      Decades ago I got rid of my Al cookware and antiperspirants containing Al.
      Using an aluminum-containing ingredient in this product is completely unnecessary and unwelcome.

    • The same silicate stops levodopa – a drug for Parkinson’s from being absorbed effectively. A possible health concern don’t you think? Not only for levodopa but 60 plus other medications and supplements. Google that!

  5. Is the Ganoderma lucidum extract obtained from the
    Lingzhi or Reishi mushroom ?

  6. Great & healthy coffee – also stabilizes the pH in the system – in-turn prevents cancer.

    • To Mr. Barry White, These Ganoderma products have to many Ingredients In them that are more harmful for your body than good. And plus If you stop and think about their main claim to the public population that coffee Is bad for you. Their Main product that they market Is an Instant Coffee beverage but Organo gold doesn’t tell you where their Instant Coffee Powder comes from or how It Is derived and processed. So basically you have no clue as to what you are actually consuming and putting Into your body. They also say It can treat diabetes but their products contain High Levels of Refined Sugar and many of the Ingredients turn Into sugar. This Is not healthy at all. I tried these products due to someone swearing by their health benefits. From my personal experience I was born premature with different Health Issues to this day one of them being Underweight and after drinking this Coffee & Hot Chocolate on a regular basis It caused me to loose even more weight In a short period of time that caused more severe Health problems for me and endangered my Lungs to which I have COPD at a very young age. So I say the risks outweigh any possible benefits In the long run.

      • Not all Ganoderma Coffee products are created equal. SereniGy makes products that are certified organic and contain ingredients that are both safe and from natural sources.

      • Tim, right on. I am now feeling sick after consuming a lot of the latte since November of 2012. I have to be tested to make sure it is not the coffee. Even my boss told me that he believes it is the coffee.. Because 1 1/2 months after consuming it, I started feeling sick.

    • I am having problems now. My boss said my sudden nervous feelings were a result of the coffee. I started in mid November and started feeling sick in January and I am still feeling sick. I stopped drinking the coffee for about two weeks and started feeling better. I decided to try again. This time, I drank two cups of mocha. After having the second cup, I began feeling nervous, week and felt faint. I knew then it was the coffee. I am still not feeling well and have to go get tested to see if aluminum is in my system.

      STAY AWAY from OG. It is NOT about health, but it is about Wealth and only a few at the top will be wealthy.

      by the way, the coffee is not kosher. I contacted OG and told them to have their reps to stop spreading the lie, saying it is. Only the green tea and black tea are Kosher beverages. The kosher symbol will be on a kosher beverage. OG confirmed this.

  7. These products have even more ingredients that are harder on the body than just coffee! They are high in refined sugar – glucose, oh look, another sugar – mono and diglycerides and look another sugar – sugar skim milk powder, oh and another – malt extract. It has cow dairy or an artificial chemical instead of cow dairy, has “instant” coffee powder – who knows how that is derived & let’s just add aluminum – a heavy metal!! Know what you are injesting and selling and you’re better off drinking coffee. You’d have to use a garbage pail load of reishi mushroom [ganoderma] to compensate for all of the above! The bottom line is, coffee is not meant to be used on a regular basis – period! You need to face the facts!

  8. There are healthy coffees. Sisel Kaffe uses infrared roasting method so the coffee bean is never burnt..thus will not cause cancer causing chemicals.

    They use the Panama Boquete Geisha coffee bean, the highest rated bean in the world. They add 4 powerful healthy ingredients including Ganoderma, but they also add Chaga, Bacopa and Gotu Kola. It taste amazingly and it’s good for you. Sisel uses only natural ingredients and never add any harmful chemicals.

  9. can somebody answer me? why did they have to use aluminum silicate as a food preservative? isn’t there another preservative that is not as harmful as this one for our health? I honestly wanted to start buying this coffee, but after hearing this, I doubt it…

  10. To be honest with you, I feel wonderful to enjoy the OG black coffee, it contains only organic coffee and organic Ganoderma. Asian people understand the latter very well, you don’t have to explain further to them, which is healthy herb served to royal family for over 2000 years.

    • You may want to ask OG for the organic certificates for their Ganoderma and coffee. Read the labels very carefully Last I was aware the Ganoderma capsules were organic but the Ganoderma in the coffee was not. Nor was the coffee. Please update this thread if I’m wrong.

  11. , Movie actor and producer Rick Lee suggests coffee drinkers to drink organic coffee or teas and if you want you can add your own choice of extracts such as the ganoderma.
    His testimony on the energy of organo gold coffee is that it did give him a lot of energy but he doesn’t agree with some of the ingredient’s long term health effects, if any?
    He is not a distributor and didn’t like the start up program choices, he didn’t think it was affordable for the average Sue or Joe. And there are too many competitors with cheaper products. He has used two or three full boxes of organo gold because a friend sold him some. He said it does taste and smell good and it is convenient to travel with. #rickleehollywood
