DXN is a multilevel marketing company based in Malaysia. Founded in 1993 by Lim Siow Jin, DXN manufactures and markets dietary supplements containing the mushrooms Ganoderma or Lingzhi. DXN products are marketed by affiliated companies Daehsan, Ltd. and Daxen in some countries in Europe and Asia.

In 2013, DXN’s office in Kerala, India, was raided by the crime branch of the Kerala Economic Offences Wing for alleged violations of the Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978. According to the crime branch, the company was running a money-chain Ponzi scheme. Documents and goods valued at 11.2 million Rupees were seized during the raid.
In May 2015, subsequent to Canadian Food Inspection Agency's inspection activities, a recall notice was issued in Canada for DXN brand instant coffees because the products contained milk which had not been declared on the product ingredient label. As such, the products posed a potential risk to consumers with milk allergies.
