Coriolus Mushroom

How does Coriolus Mushroom work?

Coriolus contains polysaccharide peptide (PSP) and polysaccharide-K (PSK, krestin), which may be able to fight tumor growth as well as boost the immune system.

Are there safety concerns?

Coriolus mushroom is POSSIBLY SAFE for most people when taken by mouth appropriately. There have been no reported side effects so far. However, people who have received chemotherapy and a chemical called PSK (which is extracted from coriolus mushroom) have experienced nausea, low white blood cell counts, and liver problems. It is unclear if these side effects were due to the chemotherapy or PSK.
