Poria Cocos Extract Powder Wolfiporia Extensa Extract Benefits
TIZAN Poria Cocos Extract Powder Wolfiporia Extensa Extract is used in herbal medicine prescriptions in China. It can be used in herbal medicine to improve ‘water-discharging’ and ‘damp-clearing’ of human body. In addition, it was also believed to be beneficial to the functions of spleen and stomach. Modern medicine studies have showed that some active ingredients of Fuling have the functions of enhancing the immunity, anti-tumor and hepatoprotective effect.
The primary formation of Fuling is beta-glucan called pachyman, which makes up at least 75% of the fungal mass. Pachyman can be branched off into a β (1 → 3) glucose polysaccharide, called pachymaran (PPS), which is believed to have the anti-tumor activity. Some researches that have been done on animals indicated that extracts of Fuling might have some other functions. The intraperitoneal injection of Fuling extract to mice can significantly reduce their spontaneous activity and efficiently against over- exicitement caused by caffeine. What’s more, the combination of some of the Fuling extract ingredient and ethanol can lower the blood sugar level and the heart contractions of frog. (Introductions to Fuling on Baidu Wenku)
It is widely used in Chinese traditional food preparations, such as Poria cake, Poria chestnut porridge, Poria chicken ravioli, Poria and Mondo grass porridge, Poria wine, Poria cream and others.
It has been recorded in Chinese medicine books as early as 200 BC. In this earliest Chinese medicine book that could be identified, Fuling was considered the top-grade tonic for every age. One of the most famous Chinese poets, Donpo Song, from Song Dynasty, was really fond of Fuling pie. He still maintained good health and amazing memory in his 60’s, which was believed to have certain relationship with his diet habit of having Fuling daily. And there was a famous story that related to Fuling. One legend was about Genghis Khan. According to this folktale, Genghis Khan’s troop was once got in trouble of illness because of unaccustomed climate, and someone in the army ate Fuling by accident and recovered. So Genghis Khan started to distribute this remedy to everyone, and cured all his soldiers which led him to win. Despite the fact folktale could always be exaggerate, these anecdotes could reflect the high cultural value back in ancient China.
In Chinese Medicine theory, each part of Fuling would have its unique medical value, such as the cuticle its sclerotium could be used to eliminate edema. What is more, the light red part after peeling the cuticle has been identified with benefit to human’s spleen, and the part near the root could actually calm the nerves.
