Is this what you're trying to do? http://ganodermacoffeefacts.com/ - I'm not sure there's much truth to that - perhaps there is, but it's not much more than a "special process" and apparently it's "magic herb". In other words, it's marketing... (more)

Is palmitic acid "bad," or is this another one of those unsubstantiated claims by status quo?
