Has anyone tried Organo Gold - Ganoderma coffee or tea? If so, did it have a positive or negative affect on your platelets?

Thank you for any input.

Looks like the main ingredient is reishi mushroom. Here is some webmd advice: High doses of reishi mushroom might increase the risk of bleeding in people with thrombocytopenia. If you have this condition, don’t use reishi mushroom.

Erica, the google-fu award goes to you this time!

I also found multiple warnings against Reishi mushrooms for ITPers.

Erica,

Thank you for your information.

Last evening I was invited to a friend's home to try some tea and coffee. It was a sales pitch on Organo Gold - Ganoderma which I had never heard of previously.

I had a cup of the coffee and had my platelets checked today. To my shock, platelet count was only 10K. They were 23K two weeks prior. I had been exercising everyday and having a much healthier diet for past couple of weeks. I was anticipating the platelets to be up higher than 23K.

Apparently the reishi mushroom probably had a negative affect on the platelet count.

Thanks again for your input.
