Medicinal mushrooms have been widely used for centuries throughout Asia. The most famous of these is Coriolus versicolor which can be found growing on tree trunks and fallen logs in the woods throughout the cool temperate zones of China, Japan and Korea. It is identified by the fan-shaped colourful wavy margin and concentric zones of alternating shades of grey, yellow or brown.
According to the ancient Chinese text recorded in the 16th century Compendium of Materia Medica, the species Coriolus versicolor (also referred to as Trametes versicolor, Yun-Zhi in China, Kawaratake in Japan) has been shown to be of benefit when regularly consumed.
Extensive scientific investigation has extracted from the mushroom cell walls an active constituent known as PSK. This active constituent is a proteoglycan concentrate containing different monosaccahrides (sugar-like molecules) bound to a core protein. This complex structure confers the medicinal benefits of PSK.
Traditionally the mushroom is harvested, dried, ground to a powder and then taken as a tea drink. Due to increased worldwide demand, the active constituent is now commercially extracted from the mycelial cell wall of Coriolus versicolor using a novel multi-step hot water extraction process.
What is PSK?
PSK is a proteoglycan found in the mushroom Coriolus or Trametes versicolor. The results obtained from a large number of published scientific studies and clinical trials showed that PSK is a powerful immunomodulator capable of stimulating diverse immunological functions.
