Lingzhi coffee is one of those coffee variants that fall squarely into diet products and consists of adding an ingredient to coffee to enhance or achieve certain properties. In this case, Lingzhi black coffee is characterised by two features:
- The presence of the reishi mushroom, which, when dried and pulverised, is mixed with the coffee.
- The total absence of sugar, preservatives or additives of any kind.
Therefore, we can consider it a purer and more natural variant of coffee with Ganoderma, which we have already talked about on our website.
What is Lingzhi black coffee like? It is a very aromatic black coffee with a hint of bitterness and is low in caffeine. That’s what you’ll find when you try it. After that, you will notice the long-term organic benefits if you incorporate it into your daily diet.
Lingzhi coffee contains only 9 milligrams of caffeine per cup, unlike traditional coffee, which contains 150-200 milligrams in a similar-sized serving.
Other diet drinks such as black tea contain 50 milligrams or green tea between 30 and 50 milligrams. Read more here: How much theine is in tea?
Main benefits of Lingzhi coffee
What is Lingzhi coffee good for? For weight loss, above all. Undoubtedly, most people who drink Lingzhi black coffee regularly do so to help them lose weight. But if we delve deeper into the properties of this coffee, we can learn about a whole series of related benefits, especially linked to the properties of the reishi mushroom.

How do you prepare Lingzhi coffee for weight loss?
The next question, once you are familiar with the product, is how to drink Lingzhi coffee. The answer is quite simple: the usual format for reishi coffee is usually in bags of instant coffee, ready to pour into a cup and pour hot water over it (you can also use milk). Stir with a teaspoon, and it is ready to be consumed.
Another formula, if we don’t have the Lingzhi soluble black coffee, is to prepare a separate reishi mushroom infusion and then our traditional coffee. When we have them ready, we mix them in the same cup, but be careful with the bitterness of the Lingzhi because if we are not careful with the proportions, we can ruin the whole aroma of our coffee.
If you decide to prepare a reishi mushroom infusion to mix with your coffee, we recommend starting small (mixing small amounts of reishi mushroom infusion) in your coffee. As you get used to it, increase the amount of reishi infusion until you reach the taste point you like.

Differences between 2-in-1 Lingzhi coffee and 3-in-1 Lingzhi coffee
We want to inform you that there is hardly any difference. It only refers to the number of ingredients it contains, which are three: coffee, sugar and reishi. But in the other varieties, the two main ingredients are always present in the same way: coffee and reishi.
Does Lingzhi coffee help to lose weight?
Like all diet products, Lingzhi 3-in-1 coffee can help you lose weight, provided you combine it with other foods and supplement your diet with healthy lifestyle habits and exercise.
Otherwise, it will not help you on its own. Lingzhi coffee is not a miracle worker (and neither are other diet products).
Can I drink Lingzhi coffee if I am pregnant?
Lingzhi coffee has less caffeine than regular coffee, but that does not mean it is completely caffeine-free. It is therefore recommended not to drink Lingzhi coffee if you are pregnant.
Side effects of Lingzhi coffee
Lingzhi coffee and its side effects have been the subject of debate and study almost since its launch. In this case, the contraindications of Lingzhi coffee are derived from those of the reishi mushroom, which usually appear when the mushroom is ingested in large quantities (this is not the case with this coffee, but it is always advisable to be cautious).
Some of these side effects of reishi mushrooms may include dryness and itching of the mouth, throat and nostrils, lowering blood pressure (best avoided if you already have low blood pressure), anticoagulatory effects, or bleeding disorders of various kinds.
Where is Lingzhi coffee with ganoderma sold?
One of the biggest questions surrounding Lingzhi DXN coffee is where it is sold.
As you have seen in this review, Lingzhi coffee with Ganoderma is sold under the brand name DXN. This company has several independent distributors who work as affiliates, which is very common in the world of natural products.
For this reason, you will often find it referred to as Lingzhi DXN coffee, but make no mistake, this is not a new variety. DXN is simply the brand that distributes it.
However, the easiest way to buy Lingzhi coffee (apart from herbalists and health food shops) is to look on Amazon. If you’re going to look in supermarkets and regular physical shops, you’ll have a hard time.
IMPORTANT: The best habit for weight loss is to follow a varied and balanced diet and to exercise regularly. Before making any decision related to your health, we recommend that you consult a doctor or nutritionist.
