DXN was founded by Datuk Dr. Lim Siow Jin, a graduate from the famed Indian Institute of Technology. Datuk Dr. 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 Dr. Lim discovered the specific benefits of Ganoderma or Lingzhi and its corresponding effects on human health. Realizing Lingzhi's importance and health benefits, Datuk Dr. Lim began sharing his knowledge about this miraculous herb among his friends and colleagues who mirrored his passion for good health.
Datuk Dr. 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 Dr. Lim's dream came true when he established DXN in Kedah, Malaysia.
