Our Founder

DXN was founded by Datuk Lim Siow Jin, a graduate from the famed Indian Institute of Technology. Datuk Lim has a deep interest in mushrooms and their relationship with human health.

After more than 20 years of careful research and scientific analysis, Datuk Lim discovered the specific benefits of Ganoderma or Lingzhi and its corresponding effects on human health. Realizing Lingzhi's importance and health benefits, Datuk Lim began sharing his knowledge about this miraculous herb among his friends and colleagues who mirrored his passion for good health.

Datuk Lim did not stop there. He felt that he should form a company that would help more people to get acquainted and utilize the benefits of this miraculous herb. In 1993, Datuk Lim's dream came true when he established DXN in Kedah, Malaysia.
