HEALING - non-edible mushrooms. Lives as a saprophyte on rotten stumps and branches. It grows on trunks or branches of deciduous trees throughout the year. The fertile body is in the form of hats that are stacked over each other. Broad range of 3-7cm, thin, with black, bluish, brown, reddish areas, which are spread irregularly-concentric. When there is more moisture then this is the area of greenish algae that settle there. Torus is white, and cream in the elderly. It is very healing. Ergosterol-containing substances, fungisterol, polysaccharide peptide PSP and PSK, which are the main active fraction of his acting on the immune system of man. It stimulates the production of interferon. This is a healing substance for cancer of the colon, breast and lung. It is effective in the treatment of hepatitis, B, and acute hepatitis. Clinically tested in Japan, Russia and the United States. Expert commentary and photos, Marjan Kuster.
