Organo Gold Review - Do These Coffee and Tea Products Work? Are steep price and side effects deal breakers?

By Summer Banks on Oct 07, 2016
Organo Gold Review

I did two things this week. I obsessed over every aspect of Organo Gold, then I wrote this. Our in-depth review focused on side effects, ingredients, scientific research and overall customer service quality. Also, we examined hundreds of comments and forum posts. Then, we condensed and summarized to give you the info you need.


What is Organo Gold?

First off, Organo Gold ingredients are grape seed oil, ganoderma spore seed powder, organic ganoderma lucidum, arabica coffee and organic green tea; among others. The company promotes health and wellness by increasing antioxidant levels, combat harmful free radicals and boosting immune system. These can be consumed daily for maximum results.

Organo Gold was founded in 2008. The entire line is available to purchase through the official website, as well as distributors. We like that some of the products contain organic ingredients and that we found some favorable customer comments, but read on…

Steep Price – “Yikes?”

The first concern was the high price tag of Organo Gold ingredients. “Coffee and tea are relatively inexpensive,” said our Research Editor. “Customers will walk away from a company if they’re expected to pay $25 for something that retails for less than $5 at grocery stores.”

One customer stated, “This is way too much to spend on coffee cups.”

Another person commented, “It costs almost as much as a weeks worth of groceries, just for coffee.”

We did find some customers that didn’t mind the cost of the products.

“The cost doesn’t matter to me. I just want quality,” said a consumer.

Side Effects – “A Problem?”

Although rare, Organo Gold side effects were mentioned by some customers. “The caffeine content must be higher than normal. I was feeling shaky all day,” commented a customer.

“There blends make me feel nauseous and sick to my stomach,” stated another.

We realize that not all side effects are bad. We found some customers that shared their experiences. “Gave me the energy I needed to tackle the day,” reported a user.

“Good quality coffee and keeps me energized,” stated another.

We’ve researched countless supplements and have found that anything considered concerning, such as customers complaining about negative side effects, the chances of long-term success are limited. So, if using Organo Gold causes adverse reactions, it may be time to think about an alternative.

The Science – “Clinical Support?”

For us at DietSpotlight, research tells us a lot about ingredient list and formulas. We did find information about some of the supplements being organic, but there’s no science-based facts used as support. With the product line from Organo Gold, there are no studies connecting it to improved wellness or weight-loss.

The Bottom Line – Does Organo Gold Work?

You may want to take the kettle off the burner and hear our final thoughts on Organo Gold. Well, we like that it includes some natural ingredients and that we found a few positive comments, but there’s no connection between the products and weight-loss; so we’re a bit concerned. Also, harmful side effects and a high price tag reported by customers leaves us skeptical about it as well.

Weight-loss involves using the right supplement that produces results. That’s why we suggest going with one containing ingredients that work, backed by positive customer comments and a cost that won’t break the bank.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. The formula contains four clinically-tested ingredients that have been shown to help accelerate metabolism and jump start fat loss. Instead of talking about harmful side effects; they’re reporting amazing results.

Plus, we’re impressed that the makers of Leptigen are so confident in their supplement, they’re offering a Special Trial Offer.

How Does Organo Gold Compare?

Previous Organo Gold Review (Updated December 26, 2014):

What You Should Know

Organo Gold produces four supplements and coffee, both of which are sold online through an official website. There is mention on the website of the Ganoderma mushroom. Ganoderma mushrooms are also referred to as Lingzhi which is a common name in oriental slimming teas and supplements. According to the information online, Ganoderma mushrooms provide immune system support and anti-aging benefits.

List of Ingredients

Ganoderma Lucidum: 100% Certified Organic Ganoderma Lucidum

Ganoderma Lucidum Mycellium: 100% Certified Organic Ganoderma Lucidum (18 days old).

Grape Seed Oil Extract: Grape Seed Oil Extract.

Ganoderma Spore Powder: 100% Certified Organic Ganoderma Spore Powder (from seed).

Product Features

The Organo Gold website offers very little information on the products and nutraceuticals formulated by the company. An Internet search brings up several websites that sell Organo Gold coffee and tea, though coffee is the only beverage listed on the main website, but most of these products are not described on the official page. The company description explains that Organo Gold is a supplier to retailers wishing to sell coffee with the benefits of the Ganoderma mushroom. Organo Gold does not sell any of their own products and does not extend support to consumers who have purchased any products.

Most of the information listed online describes the Ganoderma mushroom. Anti-aging benefits, skin healing and overall improvements to well-being are claimed, but these claims are not supported with clinical research. As a matter of fact, there are hundreds of websites pushing the benefits of Ganoderma and none give any real proof of the effects the mushroom on the body. We do know several studies have been completed on the Ganoderma mushroom linking it to anti-viral and anti-bacterial uses in Chinese medicine, but no weight loss benefits have been found.

Organo Gold supplements could not be found for sale online. The coffee produced by the company is sold online through various affiliate sources, however. Coffee can sell from $20 to $40 depending on the amount ordered.

See Our Featured


  • Anti-viral and anti-bacteria properties have been studied.
  • Products are available online.


  • There are no known weight loss benefits of the Ganoderma mushroom.
  • Organo Gold does not sell products directly through the official website.
  • All products are sold through affiliates which could mean varying return and guarantee policies.


There is very little proven information on the Ganoderma mushroom. This mushroom is the base for all Organo Gold products. Dieters wishing to add anti-viral or anti-bacterial supplements to their weight loss regime may find benefits from Organo Gold product, otherwise they will not see an increase in fat metabolism or calorie burn. Supplements with proven fat burners or metabolism boosters can be found from other companies outside of Organo Gold.

Organo Gold Questions & Answers:

We looked high and low for information on Organo Gold to create this detailed FAQ.

What are the side effects of Organo Gold?

This is a supplement line, not an individual product. Some of the Organo Gold side effects may include upset stomach, gas and jitters, based on ingredients and customer reviews.

What are the ingredients in Organo Gold?

Organo Gold ingredients will change from one supplement to the next. We found several common ones mentioned, including green tea, arabica coffee, ganoderma spore seed and ganoderma lucidum.

Does Organo Gold work?

We’d like to say the green tea or coffee will naturally boost your metabolism better than other sources, but that’s not the case. You can buy either of these two in a local vitamin store for less and get the same effect. Organo Gold does not share any clinical studies.

If you’ve thought about switching out Organo Gold for a product that is clinically proven, you may want to look at Leptigen.

How much does Organo Gold cost?

The official website for Organo Gold is a little difficult to navigate. We found an arabica coffee, 30 sachets, available for $27. The same product was found on a third-party retail website for $15. We also found a customer that claimed the Organic Spore Powder was $99.

How should I take Organo Gold?

You must check the Organo Gold product label for detailed suggestions. We assume the coffee is to be used daily, but we’ve no idea if you can drink more than one serving a day.

Can I take Organo Gold if I have a health condition?

Anyone who is under the age of 18, taking prescription medications, pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant, nursing or have a medical condition should check with their physician before using Organo Gold or any other supplement line.

What do users like about Organo Gold?

Some like that you can purchase Organo Gold products from Amazon for less than you find on the official website. The seller is listed as the main company.

What do users NOT like about Organo Gold?

User reviews show dislike for the prices for Organo Gold products. Other concerns include side effects and lackluster weight-loss results.

Are the Organo Gold products on Amazon the same ones from the official website?

As far as we can tell, both are from the same company. We did not find any information on the seller, however.

Is Organo Gold coffee any different from normal coffee?

Ganoderma is added to the coffee sold by Organo Gold. You can buy the same type of product, including a version in green tea, for less than half the price of this one.

How do I contact Organo Gold customer service?

You can contact Organo Gold customer service at 1-855-414-6266. This line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The email address is support@organogold.com. The contact form is another option, but you have to sign in to your account to send a message.

Does Organo Gold come with a guarantee?

We found no guarantee on the official website, but some pages are not accessible unless you have login information.

Do you know of any special deals or discounts on Organo Gold?

Other than lower prices on Amazon, we found no specials or discounts. We have noticed some excitement from readers who’ve taken advantage of Leptigen’s Special Trial Offer, which is only the cost of shipping and handling. Click here to check it out.

    And I should also react on the comment that says it is too expensive. If someone becomes a customer then one package of black coffee costs only €0.60. Furthermore, if someone decides to join as a distributor, after a while he/she can drink it for free. Those people who does not know how to get it cheaper say expensive but the ones who know how to make money with it don’t say it is expensive.


    Your Name

    I absolutely agree with you. I have been purchasing the beverages since 2012 and they are awesome! Hot Chocolate for my kids and they NEVER leave for school without having a cup! They love the taste. I also buy Mocha and Latte. The beverages truly deliver what they say. Health in a cup! Tell us your thoughts about Organo Gold.



    I just purchased a box of 30 “cups” for $10 on eBay… that is $.30/cup… about $1.49 less than Starbucks charges for a cup.

    My mother started to drink the King of Coffee and the normal black coffee and after a few days she already felt better of it. Sometimes she had stomach burning from the normal coffee but since she drinks OG coffee, her stomach is better.

    I am also drinking, my favorite is the latte because of its taste and maybe my concentration is improved a bit.

    The positive effects can differ. For instance, a friend of mine (girl) realized that her hair and skin became a bit smoother.

    And the fact that you can make money with drinking healthy coffee is just wonderful.

    Excellent product, excellent company….. the best compensation plan I have ever seen……Been using the products on a regular basis and have customers that have had great results after using the products….Will recommend it any day.

    need to learn about it


  • 13

    This is a Multi Level Marketing company which, very intelligently , has chosen coffee as their selling product. Coffee is one of the most popular beverages in our society , so there is a gigantic chance that ALOT of people will be interested in buying this product. The way people make money here is by securing other people to distribute the product. The main distributor will make money off of others who sell their products. The pressure is high and that’s why internet reviews of the coffee sound more like advertisements than actually evalutions of the product. If those huge Egyptian structures come to mind as you read this.. you are getting the idea. What about the product ?.. You are basically paying about $1.00 for instant coffee with a sprinkle of a natural mushroom extract. Here’s a heads-up for people interested: Go buy some of that mushroom extract and sprinkle it on your cereal .etc.. while drinking a REAL cup of coffee..
    One of my coffees that i drink is the Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee.. one of the most expensive coffees in the world. Brewing a cup of this costs less than a buck… and then there is the issue of the mushroom itself. there ONLY anecdotal evidence that it actually does anything.. placebo effect ?. aybe

    Maybe, Stuart.

    I drank one cup from a small packet that was given to me and I got terrible stomach cramps, then terrible gas, and then diarrhea. I guess it didn’t agree well with me. It did taste good while I was drinking it though.



    If you learn about the product, you will also learn that at first your body will actually go through a detox, ridding itself of the chemicals and stuff built up from your normal diet. Stick with it, and after a couple days, you will be amazed at how great you will feel.



    That has to be the dumbest thing I have ever read. Now this magic coffee detoxifies you as well? If it makes you sick, that’s you bodies way of rejecting something it seems toxic. As for feeling great after poisoning yourself, well I guess you can build up a tolerance for anything. Lol

    The taste is great, priced right, money appears possible, however, I worry a little about how deep I sleep. PS blood pressure went south.


    William Baker

    This company has been great as a customer and as a distributor. I do my research everyday and I let people know the good and bad because OG isn’t my business because I didn’t create the product. My business is the audience.

    My son joined the organo group and drinking the coffee. He’s sleep improved and he’s face that was dry and flakey has really improved.
    Myself i have had lots of health issues for years. Back, knee, wrist and heart operations plus i have diabetes 2.
    Since i have been drinking the coffee my back pain is alot less and i am walking far better and longer.
    I go for my annual test 19th Nov so i will be interested to see the results.


    I love this coffee!

    I’ve been drinking this coffee since 2013. I’ve had heart disease in the past which lead my “DOCTORS” to deciding I needed a heart transplant, but my heart miraculously healed and I no longer needed the transplant. It was fine after that except I couldn’t drink any kind of caffeine. A friend of mine sister n law gave her a sample packet of the coffee/tea and she gave it to me. I tried the coffee first, and it was the best tasting coffee I’d ever had: it didn’t make my heart palpitate, no headaches no full feeling in my head etc! Finally I can enjoy a cup of coffee no side affects. Now I’ve been sickly all my life like since I was 14 and I’m 54 now. I’ve had type 2 diabetes since I was 24, and my sugar level spiked to the 500’s by 2013. “THE DOCTORS” who the world swears is God could not find the source of why this was happening. I had a healthy diet so that wasn’t the problem. Anyway drinking this coffee for the last 2 1/2 I know have improved my blood sugar levels. Now the highest it goes up 2 hrs after a meal is 190. If anyone is waiting for this coffee to give them instant gratification; stop drinking it now. We have to use common sense: Illnesses we’ve had for years, we’re expecting it to be like the pharmaceuticals crap with deadly side affects, so long as it helps us for the moment! Now the cons for me with this coffee is: I have to cut down to one cup instead of 3 because my energy level is off the chain, and now I’m diagnosed with adult ADHD! LOL! And folks listen, not everybody on this panel is an Organo Gold plant, I’m just a customer who bought into it so I can get mine cheaper and I makes no money from this, cause I don’t care about the fly cars and the flashing lights. It worked for me. Plus you all need to add up the money you spend daily for coffee and see who’s really being played for a sucker!

    I have been a distributor with OG for 3 years, I drink the coffee every day and hate the taste of any other brand of coffee, I drink the green tea also. I am not a doctor but over the years people have been giving me their testimonials of what it has done for them and all i can say is great. I love the product for the fact that it taste great and it does not give me the crash or jitters or stomach pains like other brands. One thing i will say is i rarely get sick even when everybody around me is sick. I would love for you to be able to have your own testimonial. email me for details on getting some, or starting your own business



    Hi, I was thinking to join OG. Can you please be honest and tell me today after 3 years how much money do you make.

    I was a huge skeptic but I am now a huge believer! My doctor put me on it after testing 86 muscles and finding they weren’t working right or at all. Then he sprinkled some of the powder on my tongue from the ganoderma capsule and retested by pain level, flexibility, an muscle contol and all had improved…before my eyes. I bought it cheaper on line and found that all of the sudden I wasnt getting any positive results so I told my doctor. He tested me with what I bought and got the same negative results. Then he tested the product and found there was very little ganoderma in it plus it had other things that shouldn’t be there….a copycat! There are hundreds our there. They are worthless and could be harmful . If it’s cheaper it’s no good! The real ganoderma has so many good benifits and yes I am losing weight slowly and I’m doing nothing extra..it happens to be a benifit from the muscles starting to work again which control all aspects of your body.

    I have been following and researching about this company (Organo Gold)for some months now, my sister used used to have severe Pains and Alcer.She used this product in Nigeria and suprisingly its worked. I also benefited a lot from Mocha.We gladly joined this company. It hurts me a lot to see my only Sister suffering in pains, spending some money buying drugs that worked now, but later the pains comes back…..I don’t really know whether it was meant for that sickness, but for more than seven months now,no more pains,we’re feeling good.
