Coriolus Versicolor - standardized extract Clinically Proven

Did you know that numbers of different fungi have, for at least 40 centuries, been vital parts of mythology and medical practice around the world? Fungally-derived phytochemicals find significance among peoples along the Pacific Rim (e.g. Japan and Thailand), on the Asian continent (i.e. China and Russia), plus inside darkest Africa (especially for the Yoruba tribe of southwestern Nigeria).

Among the more than half-a-million varieties of fungi (with over 100,000 named species), mushrooms hold value especially for Europeans, who have always appreciated the gastronomic excellence of both the domestic- and wild-growing species. Gourmet cooks, especially French, Belgian, and Austrian chefs, consider mushrooms “flowers of the fall” and label them in their recipes with this loving appellation.

Are you aware that mushrooms are the perfect food for staying trim, remaining healthy, and feeling a sense of wellbeing? Because mushrooms contain only insignificant amounts of fat - predominantly as unsaturated linoleic acid - eating them may help one to hold onto a healthy cardiovascular system and stay free of malignancy.

Are you aware that most inhabitants of the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand are rather ignorant about mushrooms? In fact, these English-speaking populations actually dislike or fear ingesting mushrooms, because of “fungophobia” - the view that they are associated with unsavory or “poisonous” fungi.

Do you have fungophobia? In contrast to your possible prejudice or general misinformation, be advised that mushrooms possess medicinal value far surpassing or at least on a par with such beneficial phytochemicals (nutraceuticals) as oligomeric proanthocyanidines (OPCs), d-alpha tocopherol (natural vitamin E), thymus gland extract, CoEnzyme Q10, olive leaf extract, and particular probiotics.

Did you know that certain mushrooms are extremely safe to consume and definitely provide the user with high quality healing nutrients for a variety of serious health problems? Listed in the latter category are those mushrooms belonging to the family of Polyporaceae (also known as Basidiomycotinae). Among these Polyporacea species is Coriolus versicolor which shows great biological activity for the treatment of immune dysfunction.

Medicinal Mushroom User Steven Bailey, ND

“Of all medicinal plants, Coriolus versicolor is one of the safest and most effective agents any doctor can use against chronic diseases. This mushroom places no metabolic demand on the liver or extenuating stress on the kidneys,” says Portland, Oregon naturopathic doctor Steven Bailey, ND. “So when one looks at treatment risks for all of the recognized phytochemical products, the Coriolus versicolor mushroom exhibits one of the lowest treatment imperilments for viral infection, malignant tumors, or immune system depression.

“I see Coriolus versicolor as having a very high degree of reliability for boosting human and animal immune system function. It does this in ways that are beneficial not only for the body's surveillance or destruction of tumors but also as a protector against secondary infection,” Dr. Bailey confirms. “The two immunologically active fractions of this therapeutic mushroom negate or decrease side effects connected with chemotherapy, surgery, and radiotherapy. And those fractions offset other chronic immune imbalances, including autoimmune diseases. Definitely I consider Coriolus versicolor to be a potent immune system builder that's easy for the patients to ingest as capsules.”

In private practice for 15 years, Dr. Bailey has taught courses in nutrition and pharmacognosy at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland. He has been using the Coriolus versicolor polysaccharide extract for three years to relieve such illnesses as hepatitis B and C, AIDS, herpes genitalis, cancer, general immune suppression, and post-surgical recovery. Usually Dr. Bailey doesn't administer the Coriolus polysaccharides as a single treatment agent; rather, it becomes part of his fairly comprehensive nutritional protocol.

“Of course, some cancer patients take Coriolus versicolor even while they engage in radiation treatment or chemotherapy” Dr. Bailey advises. “Or, the patients don't submit to chemotherapy or radiotherapy at all but rely, instead, exclusively on nutritional therapies with the mushroom as a main treatment ingredient. For example, one of my patients, a 34 year-old woman working in the health field consulted me with a cancer spreading at two sites in her lungs. Orthodox treatment had been tried but no longer was effective. She embarked on nutritional therapies and completed six months of taking Coriolus versicolor. Radiological examination then showed that all of her lung tumors had disappeared. Seeing her current progress, orthodox medicine probably would declare this patient to be cured.”
