Organo Gold sells coffees and teas made with GanodermaLucidium. Found in mushrooms Ganoderma offers multiple health benefits. A partial list of those benefits includes
- Promotes heart health
- Is antiviral and antibacterial
- Prevents cancerous cells from reproducing
- Strengthens the heart
- Lowers cholesterol
For all its healthful benefits Western Markets were slow to embrace Ganoderma. It has been used for medicinal purposes in Asia for centuries. Prior to Bernie founding Organo Gold, other attempts to market foods containing Ganoderma in the west were unsuccessful. Succeeding where others failed under CEO Bernardo Chua in five years Organo Gold has become the world’s 55th largest direct selling company.
Bernie chose to base Organo Gold in Canada. That decision was part of his marketing strategy. Canada is known for its stringent testing of food products. Bernie believes that Canada’s strict standards will give consumers peace-of-mind when buying Organo Gold products.
Three years ago the success that Bernie T. Chua has achieved in the west was recognized in his native Phillippines. In 2015 he traveled to Manila to accept the Dangal ng Bayan Award for Outstanding Global Entrepreneur. The Dangal ng Bayan Awards acknowledge Phillippinos whose success serves as an inspiration to their countrymen. View Bernardo Chua’s full profile at LinkedIn
