Could mushrooms help with kidney and liver disease?


Cordyceps is producing promising results with kidney disease and hepatitis.  If you drink more alcohol than you think you should, consider having a shot of cordyceps!

In a study published by Jiang, J, et al, in 1995, human patients with kidney disease were told to take Cordyceps supplements.  More than half of them, or 51%, experienced dramatic improvement with their disease!

Six years later, a research project headed by Liu, Yu-Kan, et al, studied the impact on chronic hepatitis.  The results were almost mind-blowing!  Not only did cordyceps extract inhibit the progress of chronic hepatitis, but it virtually prevented the formation of scar tissue,  liver fibrogenesis and sclerosis, by inhibiting the release of transforming growth factor (TGF) and other growth factors, including procollagen I and II.

Conclusion?  If you think you are drinking a little bit more than you should, maybe a shot of cordyceps extract would be a good idea!  Your liver might thank you.  And, since the liver is one of your most important organs and plays a significant role in determining your energy level, everyone living even a remotely toxic lifestyle could benefit from incorporating cordyceps in their supplement regimen!

      We are only an information provider and are not authorized to provide any medical advise. According to Katherine Albrecht, who discussed her cancer on Coast-to-Coast, some supplement companies are willing to provide detailed advise. She used the products of Mushroom Science, Inc. Hopefully they can provide you with an answer. It might be a good idea to go through the articles on kidney disease on our site, and more importantly, review the source documents (actual research abstracts) to arm yourself with information prior to contacting mushroom supplement manufacturers.

      Note: This site does NOT encourage anyone to change or abandon their traditional treatments without consulting their physician first. And, many of the studies on this site are animal studies and the proper dose for humans has not yet been determined. View the full disclaimer on the disclaimer page of this site.
