Coriolus versicolor "Super Strength"|
Fruit Body Cell Wall Extract
Over 300 published studies have been conducted on the immuno-modulating* properties of the 1-4,1-3 proteoglycans extracted from the cell walls of Coriolus versicolor, including 24 human studies (14 controlled, randomized, human clinical trials). With over $350 million in annual sales in Japan, this cell-wall extract has become one of the most widely used supplements in the world for supporting immune health.*
Decoctions of Coriolus versicolor have been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine, with references in the Chinese Compendium of Materia Medica dating as far back as the 15th century. The Ming dynasty edition states that "The black and green Yun zhi are beneficial to one's spirit and vital energy, and strengthen one's tendon and bone. If Yun zhi is taken for a long time, it will make one vigorous and live long."
600 mg per Vcap
Immune modulation,* hepatic support.*
Instructions For Use
Two to three capsules two times daily. For maximum dose, use no less than 3000 mg of extract per day.
Toxicity, Cautions, Contraindications
Coriolus polysaccharides are safe and nontoxic, having been used daily in clinical studies lasting five to ten years. However, immuno-modulating substances should be used with extreme care or avoided completely in organ-transplant patients utilizing immuno-suppressive agents.
Traditional Use And Preparation
Coriolus is sweet in taste and slightly warm in nature, acting through the spleen and heart meridians. It dispels damp and reduces phlegm. In Traditional Chinese Medicine Coriolus is prepared as a hot-water extraction/decoction. Coriolus is never used in the un-extracted form or prepared as a cold-process tincture.
Heavy Molecular Weight Polysaccharides ( 1-4,1-3 proteoglycans)
Hot-water extracts from both the fruit body and the mycelium are used in current clinical practice and research. The active constituents, the polysaccharides, are found in the cell walls of both, although extracts from the fruit body have shown higher levels of immune activity* with oral use. Coriolus "Super Strength" is isolated through a multi-step hot-water extraction process, creating a high concentration of the 1-4,1-3 cell-wall constituents used in the Japanese research. As these compounds are difficult to extract and easily degraded with excessive heat NMR and linkage analysis are used to ensure product quality.

Chinese ... Yun zhi (Cloud Mushroom)
Japanese ... Kawaratake
Common Name ... Turkey Tail
Coriolus versicolor belongs to the family Polyporaceae and is
found throughout the wooded temperate zones of North America, Asia,
and Europe. Found predominantly on hardwoods, the thin, woody, shelf-like
fruit bodies form dense overlapping clusters on the sides of stumps
and fallen trees. The fruit bodies (mushrooms) have a plush, velvety
surface, are colored in varying shades of gray or brown, and have
a distinctive pattern of alternating bands of dark and light color.
The bottom is cream colored and porous.
