Hello, brothers and sisters! The researchers found two Yunzhi mushroom extracts, polysaccharide K (PSK) and polysaccharide peptide (PSP), which have several anti-cancer properties. In some animal studies, it slowed the spread of cancer cells. PSK is also thought to be a powerful antioxidant, a compound that blocks the activity of free radicals, activated oxygen molecules that can damage cells being studied for treatment. cancer. Verisicolor polysaccharide (VPS), a mushroom extract sold as a dietary supplement in the United States, is also being studied. Polysaccharide is a carbohydrate formed by a large number of sugar molecules. Clinical trials show that PSK can help people with certain types of cancers by increasing survival rates and prolonging the duration of their illness-free periods, without causing major side effects. PSK is often used with other cancer treatments in Japan.
