Mycology News - 9th edition
In this edition, we address the hepato-protective effect of Cordyceps sinensis in liver damage and how Cordyceps could inhibit hepatic fibro genesis derived from chronic liver injury , retard the development of cirrhosis and notably improve liver function. Dr Celia Santos outlines a study in which Cordyceps sinensis supplementation (3 g per day for 90 day) is provided to fourteen (14) patients with alcoholic fatty livers and the reduction in their liver enzyme levels was compared to a control group who only practiced abstinence. Professor Amin Karmali provides a comparative analysis of those enzymes responsible for detoxification in four mushrooms, Corolus versicolor, Cordyceps sinensis, Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi) and Grifola frondosa (Maitake). Dr Girao Bastos, a leading Portuguese professor in veterinarian medicine, provides three clinical cases on the application of Coriolus versicolor in: Cat with FELV, Dog with abdominal tumor and cat with fibro sarcoma in hip.
