Antrodia Camphorata, found only in Taiwan and has long been utilized native Taiwanese, The native Taiwanese would cook up a soup recipe of Antrodia C. using a recipe that had been passed down for generations to maintain health.
In the wild, Antrodia C. grows solely on the tree Cinnamomum kanehirae in the mountains of Taiwan at altitudes of between 1,476 and 6,562 ft. Because the fruiting body only develops once the host tree is dead, many trees were felled to meet demand. Also, the tree is highly sought after by furniture manufactures. Thus, C. kanehirae supplies diminished and demand increased for this unique and extremely rare mushroom. In fact, wild Antordia C. can fetch up $3,000 per pound. The tree is now protected by the Taiwanese government.
Antrodia C. contains: triterpenoids, superoxide dismutase, glandlucosides, polysaccharides, B-D-glucan, proteins (including immune proteins), vitamins (such as vitamin B, nicotinic acid, lysergic alcohols), trace elements (such as calcium, phosphorus, germanium), nucleic acids, the lectin, amino acids, steroids, lignin. The numerous compounds in Antrodia C. are found to be more effective than Ganoderma Lucidum, another mushroom used in traditional Eastern medicine. Biotech companies have also invested heavily in the studies and development of Antrodia C. as it has shown promise and growth.
The liver is one of the most important organs in the human body. Despite current advances in medicine, there is no way to fully compensate for the functions of the liver over the long term. The only treatment option for complete liver failure is liver transplantation. It is estimated that the liver performs around 500 different functions. The liver plays a crucial role in detoxification, metabolism, and digestion within the body.
Alcohol consumption may lead to serious liver diseases like alcoholic hepatitis, fatty liver, and cirrhosis. Those who do not consume alcohol are still at risk of severe liver damage. Acetaminophen, used in common over-the-counter medications like Tylenol and Nyquil, is the foremost cause of acute liver failure in the western world. In fact, in 2011, the FDA mandated that manufacturers of prescription drugs with acetaminophen must have a warning label informing the consumer of this. Today, there is a dire problem of over consumption and over medication of substances that are taxing on the liver. Many people are now looking for natural solutions to combat this problem.
Antrodia Camphorata is a fungus that exclusively grows inside the Cinnamomum Kanehirae tree, which can only be found in Taiwan. More recently, it has been the subject of many scientific studies, which showed that Antrodia has great health benefits especially for liver health.
