Gano excel FDA warning letter
This would be the first good hard evidence (good or bad) I've read regaring the gano excel coffee and corporation.
http://www.casewatch.org/fdawarning/pro ... xcel.shtml
FDA has tagged gano excel with a warning and this will draw out gano excel company and their ganoderma coffee as either being fraudulent, quackery, snake oil ... or perhaps their product realy does things such as :
- “Ganoderma helps to detect hidden diseases... ”
Ganoderma, “is known . . . for its power to remove...excess cholesterol.... ”
Under “Why we need to take Ganoderma ?” it states that Ganoderma “has the ability.. . to discover if we have hidden diseases in the body. Then it removes the toxins and enables the body to treat a wide spectrum of diseases with the natural immune system. ”
The “Testimony” section of your website promotes Gano Excel for the treatment of gout, diabetes, and psoriasis.
but then again the FDA says
These drugs are misbranded within the meaning of section 502(f)(1) of the Act, in that the labeling for these drugs fails to bear adequate directions for use.
Marketing a dietary supplement with express or implied claims to prevent, treat, mitigate, cure, or diagnose a specific disease, or class of diseases, violates the Act unless FDA has authorized the claim in accordance with applicable health claim regulations,The man with the many Coffee hats.

I know that I love the way the coffee tastes and so does everyone that i give a sample too. I know it has made me and others feel better, sleep better at night and That is what i am going on. When I get a phone call from someone telling me what it has done for them, and they want to get involved and tell others and make money. So I do not sell this on promises but i give sample and they tell me what it does for them. The money just comes. But most of all is it tastes great. If it didn't we would not be here or I would not. I love coffee and anyone can get a free sample and see for themselves.

Rowley, reading between the lines in the FDA letter could this be the reason Gano is now being sold as a coffee??? I would imagine that this would bypass the FDA's health supplement regulations which are pretty intense.Merdeka Coffee (Indonesian Coffee Roasters and relationship coffee specialists) - Antipodean (Coffee - Cafe - Culture)

But you are right , the article clearly points out its focus on the Ganoderma capsules, Excellium capsules, and Sakanno as dietary supplements. with no mention of ganoderma coffee.The man with the many Coffee hats.

The gano derma products have worked so well for me, and my family. Frankly I'm not surprised that the FDA would look for some loop hole to stop Americans from wanting to be healthy. The big drug companies will loose money and fold if consumers find healthy less expensive ways to deal with ailments. Marie [/b]

in response to comments re: the F...D...A... letter
I have been a Gano Excel representative for over 1 1/2 years and I feel compelled to respond to the comments made in this thread.
*** It is important to note the letter was dated April 15, 2004 - almost 9 months ago (a very long time in this industry
Gano Excel (US and Canada) started into North America in 2003 and 2002, respectively, as an Asian company whose headquarters and organic plantations are based in Malaysia. At that time they were a 9 year old, network marketing company doing business in 14 other countries, they had over 1 million customers and did over $130 Million in sales in 2003, worldwide.
Reishi mushroom, aka ganoderma lucidum, the ingredient in all the Gano Excel product line, is commonly used in Asian countries as a health product, with over 2000 years of history. It is relatively new to North America (Vitamin C has only a 30 year history of study in N. America), in comparison to other cultures who are well-versed in Eastern holistic medicine.
The letter was acknowledged by the company`s owners, industry experts were consulted and the statements on all the company websites were changed to comply with North American standards, plus labelling was changed on some products. Distributors were warned not to make claims and same was made part of the company`s policies and procedures.
Healthy Coffee, Tea and Cocoa have been a part of the company for many years as have their supplements, personal care and skin care products. It was not a "sudden" marketing ploy to change categories
In order for a company to import products into the US they must have ALL their permits in place to comply with the FTC, especially after Dec. 12 of 2003, when the US import laws changed drastically. Full disclosure of all ingredients is required and the company must re-permit any new product it adds to an existing line, at a great cost to them also.
I seriously doubt that any network marketing company that exists for more than 3 or 4 years (the majority fail before then) doesn`t have some issue with the FDA, the FTC or Health Canada at some point. It is how a company responds to any allegation is the true measure of the company`s willingness to stay in business.
Unfortunately the FDA, FTC or Health Canada do not find themselves responsible for reporting back to North Americans that yes, they investigated and they were then satisfied that the company in question did indeed, meet and satisfy their requirements.
p.s. I simply say to people that "Healthy Coffee, Tea or Cocoa is a healthier choice to drinking regular coffee and if they would like to try a sample I wiould be happy to get them one. Would they prefer mocha, black, cocoa, etc.......?"

gano is a scam
I have been taking the ganoderma and the excellium for about a year. I have notice that I have forgot many of the words. It is hard for me to complete my sentences when I speak. I feel that these pills have changed my memory. I am going to report this to the FDA. I have stopped for three weeks and I can see that there is a change within my memory. I think that gano excel needs to do some research and experiments before it hits the market.

Gano is a fraud! Plain and simple.We did some research on their product and it only contains 2% gano and is loaded with caffine and sugar.The coffee it self is some second rate banana republic coffee.I had a friend try it and he is diabetic.It rose his blood sugar levels into the stratosphere.Stay away from this company and its glitzy advertising .The old saying goes if its to good to be true it is!
