Psoriasis

As with other autoimmune conditions, medicinal mushrooms can be helpful in cases of psoriasis with one study using an extract of Inonotus obliquus extract reporting a 76% cure rate, with improvement in a further 16% of cases1.

CLINICAL NOTE
Extracted products delivering high levels of both polysaccharides and triterpenes are preferred. Clinically extracts of Ganoderma lucidum, another mushroom containing high levels of polysaccharides and triterpenes, also show benefit (2-3g/day).
