What is Coriolus Versicolor?
Coriolus Versicolor PSP is a 100% extract from Coriolus Versicolor obtained from deep-layer-cultivated mycelia of the COV-1 strain using patented advance biotechnology.
What is PSP?
The active ingredient is protein-bound polysaccharide peptide (PSP). It is a polysaccharide that binds together small particles of protein.
PSP Producing Strain is Traditional Medicine Ingredient – Coriolus Versicolor
There are up to 120 types of Coriolus Versicolor recorded in Bencao Gangmu (本草綱目, the Compendium of Meteria Medica). The PSPproducing COV-1 strain was meticulously selected and cultured from nearly 100 wild-type Coriolus Versicolor
available in different areas in China.
Selective Essence in Every Single Drop
Mixed-strain Coriolus Versicolor collected from the wild may be contaminated with bacteria and therefore provides no guarantee on quality. Apart from a far lower medicinal value compared with COV-1, it is also difficult to remove impurities and pollutants from wild Coriolus Versicolor. COV-1, on the other hand, was meticulously selected from nearly a hundred Coriolus Versicolor strains and is considered the strain
with the highest medicinal value. The isolation and culture of the single
COV-1 strain requires advanced biotechnology, providing an assurance of safety and quality.
Coriolus Versicolor PSP
For many years, Coriolus Versicolor PSP has been the subject of rigorous scientific investigation. Experts from around the world (including Mainland China, Hong Kong and the US) have conducted Phase I, II and III randomized, double-blind clinical trials demonstrating that Coriolus Versicolor PSP:
- Promotes phagocytic activity of neutrophils, monocytes and macrophages
- Stabilizes the number of immune cells to normal levels during cancer treatment
- Reduces side effects related to the immune system when used as adjuvant treatment for radiotherapy or chemotherapy
- Enhances the body’s resistance to bacterial and viral infections infections
The Human Immune System
白血球看似獨立的單細胞，卻是先天免疫守護員。先天白血球成員包括淋巴細胞、吞噬細胞(巨噬細胞)、細胞毒T細胞(Cytotoxic T cell)、自然殺手細胞(Natural Killer Cell)等。它們能辨認並消滅致病源，用接觸或直接吞噬方式來消滅。先天細胞膜對後天免疫系統的活化十分重要。
