Ancient Mushrooms in Modern Coffee
Most people don’t know it, but the first coffee drinker was a 9th-century Ethiopian goat herder. The herder notices his goats had more energy after eating berries from a particular evergreen tree. The herder took some berries to a Muslim holy man, and the man turned them into a version of today’s coffee. Drinking coffee, or what the locals call “Mocha,” didn’t catch on until the 12th-century. But by the 17th-century there were more than 3,000 coffee shops in England.
In the Arabia and Yemen, coffee was a wonder drug so people would only drink it after talking to a doctor. Some people called it “brain tonic” because they had religious visions after drinking it. Today, people around the world consume more than 50 billion cups of coffee a year. One man is on a quest to promote coffee and tea as an antioxidant that is capable of helping the immune system fight the free radicals that cause illnesses.
That man is Bernie Chua. Chua is a successful, award-winning entrepreneur who knows all about ancient remedies. In 2008, Chua founded Organo Gold. While searching through all the ancient remedies, Chua discovered a mushroom called Ganoderma lucidum. Ganoderma lucidum had a reputation for helping people recover from certain ancient illnesses.
When Chua did his research, he found polysaccharide Beta-glucan in these ancient mushroom. That ingredient is an antioxidant that helps the immune system fight the free radicals that enter the body through food, the environment, and through other sources. In Asia, Ganoderma lucidum is a mushroom king, and Chua is one of Asia top entrepreneurs, so it wasn’t a surprise when Mr. Chua released a statement saying his company would market wellness drinks with Mycelium threads from the mushroom’s ingredients. Because coffee and tea already have a reputation for having ingredients that made people feel better, Chua decided to blend Mycelium threads with those popular drinks. Chua also added lucidum in the mushroom caps to his new coffee and tea recipes.
Bernie Chua left no stone unturned as he developed his Organo Gold product line. One of his first tasks was to develop a worldwide, cost-effective network distribution system. Chua had a solid reputation as an entrepreneur in Asia, but he knew his coffee and tea would be a hit on other continents as well. After years of marketing and testing, Chua was able to get his products noticed. His Organo drinks help people who want to achieve a sense of wellness as they go through the aging process.
Organo Gold is not an ordinary company because Chua is not an ordinary entrepreneur. Bernie is a gold medal recipient from the Napoleon Hill Foundation, and he has a reputation for being an excellent multi-level marketing specialist. But Chua’s Organo products are the award-winners these days. Organo’s coffee won two People’s Choice Awards recently: His java is “Best Gourmet Organic Health Coffee, according to coffee drinkers around the globe. And his company won an award for being the best Global Network Marketing Company in the world. Chua accepted both awards in the Philippines. That’s where Bernie Chua got his start as an entrepreneur and a multi-level marking guru.
Today, Organo offers people the ingredients in the Ganoderma lucidum mushrooms in pill form. Taking two Ganoderma lucidum pills a day helps non-coffee and tea drinkers keep their immune system functioning properly. Chua also offers people a sweet tasting Gourmet Latte, and a Gourmet Moca, as well as a Gourmet Hot Chocolate. And Chua’s Green Tea also contains the ingredients derived from the Ganoderma lucidum mushrooms.
