“Ganoderma lucidum, an edible medicinal mushroom known as “Lingzhi” in China and “Reishi or Manetake” in Japan, has been used for promoting health and for extending life in China and in other East Asia countries for 2000 years. … The fungi, mycelia and spores of Ganoderma lucidum contain about 400 different bioactive substances, including polysaccharides, triterpenoids, nucleotides, sterols, steroids, fatty acids, proteins/peptides and trace elements.” (https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/immunology-and-microbiology/ganoderma)
