Anti-aging Gel Lingzhi Spore Capsule
Anti-aging Gel Lingzhi Spore Capsule is a nutritional supplement designed to improve sleep quality and physical strength and prolong life. However, none of these benefit claims are supported by actual evidence. Other benefits mentioned by the manufacturer include supporting body-building activities, as a nutritional supply and as a beauty product (due to claimed rejuvenation properties).
The manufacture of this formula is Shenzhen FYK Biology & Technology, a company specialized in manufacturing skin-care and health-care products and beauty equipment. Little information is available about the company’s history or performances registered in its field of activity.
The formula is based on the extract of ganoderma spore powder, 100% micro-broken to ensure a high-effectiveness and quality.
