Where to buy medicinal mushrooms? Order mushroom extracts from China

What you should know about medicinal mushroom extracts:

– buy only hot water mushroom extracts OR alcohol mushroom extracts
– avoid powdered mushroom because your body will not digest “chitin”
– avoid powdered mushrooms because they almost don’t have any active ingredients
– hot water extraction is the only way for breaking polysaccharides out of indigestible mushroom cells
– seriously, powdered mushrooms are not better than “placebo”
– only extraction provides concentrated polysaccharides
– only extraction provides good concentration of bioavailable ingredients

Where to buy good quality medicinal mushrooms extracts?

There are many companies selling “food suplements” with medicinal mushrooms. Unfortunetly they are extremly overpriced and often contain powdered mushrooms instead of mushroom extracts. Many companies sell products that are not better than “placebo”. It’s because your body will not digest chitin from powdered mushrooms.

Fortunetly you can order mushroom extracts from China.

A few months ago I was looking for a good bio-technology company from China. I’ve requested informations from 15-20 sellers available on AliBaba and AliExpress. That’s how I found XI’AN NATE BIOLOGICAL TECHNOLOGY CO.,LTD.

They gave me the answers to all my questions and they had real knowledge about mushroom extracts. That’s why I decided to buy Coriolus Versicolor (Trametes Versicolor) extract from them. I paid via Western Union and a few days later I got my package, via FedEx, without any problems.

Medicinal mushrooms and cancer – a scientific review

From time immemorial, mushrooms have been valued by humankind as a culinary wonder and folk medicine in Oriental practice. The last decade has witnessed the overwhelming interest of western research fraternity in pharmaceutical potential of mushrooms. The chief medicinal uses of mushrooms discovered so far are as anti-oxidant, anti-diabetic, hypocholesterolemic, anti-tumor, anti-cancer, immunomodulatory, anti-allergic, nephroprotective, and anti-microbial agents. The mushrooms credited with success against cancer belong to the genus Phellinus, Pleurotus, Agaricus, Ganoderma, Clitocybe, Antrodia, Trametes, Cordyceps, Xerocomus, Calvatia, Schizophyllum, Flammulina, Suillus, Inonotus, Inocybe, Funlia, Lactarius, Albatrellus, Russula, and Fomes. The anti-cancer compounds play crucial role as reactive oxygen species inducer, mitotic kinase inhibitor, anti-mitotic, angiogenesis inhibitor, topoisomerase inhibitor, leading to apoptosis, and eventually checking cancer proliferation. The present review updates the recent findings on the pharmacologically active compounds, their anti-tumor potential, and underlying mechanism of biological action in order to raise awareness for further investigations to develop cancer therapeutics from mushrooms. The mounting evidences from various research groups across the globe, regarding anti-tumor application of mushroom extracts unarguably make it a fast-track research area worth mass attention.

Can low-carbohydrate diet cure type 2 diabetes?

Can low-carbohydrate diet cure type 2 diabetes?

It seems so:

At the first visit, participants were instructed how to follow the LCKD as individuals or in small groups, with an initial goal of ≤20 g carbohydrate per day. Participants were taught the specific types and amounts of foods they could eat, as well as foods to avoid. Initially, participants were allowed unlimited amounts of meats, poultry, fish, shellfish, and eggs; 2 cups of salad vegetables per day; 1 cup of low-carbohydrate vegetables per day; 4 ounces of hard cheese; and limited amounts of cream, avocado, olives, and lemon juice. Fats and oils were not restricted except that intake of trans fats was to be minimized. Participants were provided a 3-page handout and a handbook detailing these recommendations. Participants prepared or bought all of their own meals and snacks following these guidelines.

Twenty-one of the 28 participants who were enrolled completed the study. Twenty participants were men; 13 were White, 8 were African-American. The mean [± SD] age was 56.0 ± 7.9 years and BMI was 42.2 ± 5.8 kg/m2. Hemoglobin A1c decreased by 16% from 7.5 ± 1.4% to 6.3 ± 1.0% (p < 0.001) from baseline to week 16. Diabetes medications were discontinued in 7 participants, reduced in 10 participants, and unchanged in 4 participants. The mean body weight decreased by 6.6% from 131.4 ± 18.3 kg to 122.7 ± 18.9 kg (p < 0.001). In linear regression analyses, weight change at 16 weeks did not predict change in hemoglobin A1c. Fasting serum triglyceride decreased 42% from 2.69 ± 2.87 mmol/L to 1.57 ± 1.38 mmol/L (p = 0.001) while other serum lipid measurements did not change significantly.
