Developed almost a decade ago, Organo Gold has made the natural ingredient Ganoderma a household name just as he intended to. Bernardo Chua, founder and CEO of Organo Gold, has made it his life mission to introduce Ganoderma to the western world Bernardo grew up using the super mushroom in the Philippines because his mother brought it from China. In that country, the Ganoderma has been used in Chinese medicine for 4,000 years and is known as the King of Herbs.
Ganoderma has amazing benefits as a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and it is known to lower cholesterol, relieve lung conditions and reduce cancerous tumors. Bernardo realized these benefits and others as a young man and made it his mission to spread the use and knowledge of this natural product internationally.
Organo Gold was founded in British Columbia Canada in 2007, three years after he closed his first company Gano Excel. He opened the new direct sales company because he discovered a new, innovative way of using the Ganoderma so that it would be more accessible to the public.
Chua infused coffee, tea and other hot beverages with the Ganoderma, which previously had only been manufactured as capsules and tablets. It was rarely taken raw because of its bitter taste, so infusing hot beverages allowed the Ganoderma to be more accessible to more people. Chua chose to distribute the Ganoderma by networking, so new customers would receive the information directly. Today, Organo Gold is 55th in direct sales worldwide.
Oregano Gold obtains premium Ganoderma from Asia and infuses five coffees, three teas, supplements and has three personal care products. Bernardo Chua is very active in the management of Organo Gold, and as of 2016, it has been introduced into 35 countries around the globe. The most recent country that Bernardo has opened to distribution is Turkey, and he is planning on another in 2016. Read more about Bernardo Chua, and his vision, on BitsyLink.
