SAVE 20% on NutraceuticsRx CoriolusPure™ Coriolus Versicolor Mushroom Extract

November 12, 2010
  • Promotes Immune System Health
  • Shown to Produce Anti-tumor Effects

NutraceuticsRx CoriolusPure™ is the most potent Coriolus Versicolor Mushroom extract on the planet!

Chinese medicine has promoted this mushroom for its energizing and healing properties for thousands of years. Chinese legend is filled with stories of those who discovered the mushroom and became immortal. In the West, acceptance is based less on tradition and more on the results of the scientific method. Researchers have documented that mushrooms are some of the most potent medicines on the plant. Recent research findings have shown the Coriolus versicolor mushroom stands out above the rest for regulating the immune system.

Coriolus versicolor found to be effective against cancer and human papillomavirus

Researchers at the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York tested several botanicals for their immune enhancing activity using a subcutaneous immunization model of cell surface carbohydrate expression in cancer cells in a study published in September, 2008 Vaccine. They found Coriolus versicolor to display consistent and significant immune enhancement activity superior to all other coumpounds tested. The superiority of Coriolus to yeast beta-glucan, maitake, turmeric, echinacea, and preparation H-48 from Honso USA, was described as surprising. Although the exhibited levels of immune enhancing ability of astragalus was also impressive, it was surpassed by that of Coriolus.

The March, 2008 BMC Cancer reports Coriolus versicolor has shown anticancer activity with positive results in the treatment of gastric, esophageal, colorectal, breast and lung cancers. The efficacy of its protein-bound polysaccharide as an immunomodulator is credited. This activity was independent of its previously described immunomodulatory effect on NK cells.

The journal Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy reports double blind trials on 111 patients with colorectal cancer, using Coriolus versicolor. Although traditional medicine offers little help for colon cancer patients, Coriolus showed a remarkable enhancement of the patient’s white blood cells, even in advanced colon cancer cases. The white cells greatly increased natural chemotactic motion and phagocytosis, the ability to scavenge toxins and kill pathogens. Coriolus was also used with patients as a helpful maintenance therapy following cancer surgery.

The results of a year long clinical trial examining the effects of mushroom supplementation in patients with Human Papillomavirus (HPV) were so impressive they were presented in 2008 at the 20th European Congress of Obstetrics and Gynocology. Dr. Silva Couto and his research team found that Coriolus versicolor supplementation over the period of one year substantially increased regression of dysplasia and induced clearance of the high-risk subtypes of the HPV responsible for cervical cancer. Coriolus supplementation demonstrated a 72 percent regression rate in lesions compared to 47.5 percent without supplementation, and a 90 percent regression rate in the high risk HPV virus sub-types compared to 8.5 percent without.

After using the supplement for one year, 72.5 percent of recipients reverted to normal cytology compared with only 47.5 percent of the control group. Coriolus supplementation produced a 90 percent regression rate in the high risk HPV virus sub-tupes compared to an 8.5 percent regression without supplementation.

What makes Coriolus versicolor special?

Coriolus versicolor, also referred to as the turkey-tail mushroom, contains large quantities of Beta-glucans that act to stimulate the immune system. Coriolus can dramatically regenerate and rejuvenate the body. Its most active medicinal components are biological response modifiers called protein-bound polysaccharides. These polysaccharides are known as Krestin or PSK in Japan, and as Yun zhi, or PSP in China. There have been reports of cases of Bell’s palsy clearing up with use of Coriolus for just a few days. Others have found it effective against bronchitis.

Other studies have shown that Coriolus can double the number of natural killer cells after only 8 weeks of treatment. Coriolus has also been found to help patients with chronic fatigue syndrome and may be an effective treatment for Lyme disease.

More research documents the anti-tumor benefits of Coriolus

Japanese researchers screened 200 of the best phytochemicals (plant extracts) known for anti-tumor activity. Coriolus versicolor was designated as exhibiting the greatest amount of anti-tumor activity. In another Japanese study, 185 people with lung cancer at different stages were given radiation. Doctors found those who also took Coriolus showed the best tumor shrinkage and the best survival rate. Another study involving stomach cancer patients produced similar results. Those who received Coriolus survived significantly longer, felt better and had fewer side effects.

Coriolus is first line defense against infection

Coriolus is a good centerpiece for your natural medicine chest, even if you are currently the picture of health. When any type of infection strikes, you will be ready. Coriolus can be used to target any infected organ, gland or tissue. Its immune enhancing properties provide an increased response to deal effectively with infections, and do this without over stimulating the immune system.

Winter is Coming… Give Your Immune System a Boost!

November 9, 2010

Flavonoids are potent antioxidants that protect the body and fight silent inflammation – the leading cause of many chronic diseases, including cancer, heart disease, stroke, dementia and others. Flavonoid-rich foods include vegetables, tea, red wine and dark chocolate.

There are more than 5,000 flavonoids, but one of the most powerful is Quercetin. It’s one of nature’s best immune boosters and antihistamines – and among the most abundant flavonoids found in food.

Quercetin fights free radicals that can damage cells. But what really makes quercetin unique is that it protects you in three ways. It’s contains antioxidant, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory power. It stops your body from boosting histamine levels when you get sick, which can reduce symptoms like a stuffy nose, congestion and more.

One recent study by The American Journal of Physiology found that quercetin can protect against the flu for immune systems under stress. Another study put Quercetin’s healing powers to the test against the common cold, when University of Michigan researchers tested Quercetin on cells infected with the rhinovirus. Quercetin stopped the virus from replicating and prevented excess inflammation.

In a study to test the strength of Quercetin and vitamin C for fighting free radicals, Quercetin was a more effective antioxidant than vitamin C. So the next time you come down with a bug, treat it with 10 mg of quercetin daily.

The easiest way to get enough Quercetin is to eat dark, leafy, greens, or other dark-colored vegetables like red onions, scallions and kale. Even capers have Quercetin. But, what you may not know is that if you cook those veggies, they lose Quercetin. So it’s best to eat them washed and raw. A good way to remember which fruits have the most Quercetin is that they have it in the skin. That means blueberries, blackberries, cherries, grapes, and, of course, apples.

You can also try supplementing. American Nutrition carries a variety of dosages of Quercetin – along with several other rare and naturalimmune-boosting herbs and nutrients.

    Natural Remedies for Hair Loss (Balding)

    October 6, 2010

    Baldness is a condition in which a person experiences partial or complete hair loss on the scalp. Most common hair loss causes are connected with an imbalance of hormones. Increased levels of the hormone dihydrotestosterone, can decrease the productive function of hair follicles. Over time hair becomes thinner and eventually falls out, baldness occurs when the rate at which hair falls is greater than the rate of hair growth.

    Hair loss (Balding), is much more common in men than in women. It usually begins on the sides, near the front, or on the top of the head toward the back. Hair loss can begin at any age, even in the middle teen years. Some people lose only some hair and develop a bald spot in the back or a receding hairline, others may go completely bald. Hair loss can result from genetic factors, aging, local skin conditions, stress and diseases that affect the body generally (systemic diseases). Some medications, such as those used to treat cancer, also cause hair loss.

    More than 50% of women over the age of 40 experience significant hair loss (Androgenetic alopecia ) or thinning hair. The Hair loss can be temporary or long lasting, patchy or all over the scalp.

    Causes of Hair Loss in Women:

    • Genetics (from Mother or Father)
    • Inadequate nutrition (insufficient protein and iron intake)
    • Physical and emotional stress
    • Unbalanced thyroid levels
    • DHT buildup in follicles
    • Side effects of prescription medications; including retinoids, blood pressure medicine, anti-depressants and certain types of birth control pills.
    • Discontinuing birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy
    • Extremely High Fevers
    • Diseases such as diabetes and lupus
    • Chemotherapy or radiation therapy

    Most types of hair loss have no cure. A person with male-pattern or female-pattern baldness may undergo hair transplantation, in which hair follicles are removed from one part of the body and transplanted. Some medications or hair loss products, such as topical minoxidil, may promote hair growth in a small percentage of people. The oral drug finasteride may also promote hair growth, but both have a number of possible side effects, including sexual side effects.

    Hair transplants are a surgical procedure in which the surgeon removes a plug of hair from an area where hair has not yet thinned, and transplants it in an area where hair has been lost. If choosing this route, carefully research the surgeon as nothing looks as bad as a poorly done hair transplant.

    One of the more increasingly popular balding remedies is laser therapy hair loss treatment. Laser therapy is a non-surgical procedure that uses a device that directs light energy from 30 rotating positions, hitting 600 places on your head. The laser light is meant to stimulate cell metabolism and repair damaged cells. Treatment by lasers for hair and regrowth often has to be repeated, sometimes as often as once every month.

    A natural hair loss remedy may be helpful for healthy hair growth.

    Nutrients are vitally important in creating the proper environment for healthy hair growth. A diet that includes a lot of junk food could promote inflammation and be harmful to hair growth, whereas a healthy diet, that includes soy products, vegetables, fish or fish oil may help to reduce hair loss over time. Hair is made of protein, so it is important to have a natural balance of protein intake in your diet. This can help with healthy hair growth and regrowth of any lost hair. Hair also needs certain vitamins, such as B vitamins, in order to grow properly. Taking a daily vitamin and mineral supplement is a good way to keep your hair healthy. Scientific studies indicate the combination of Saw Palmetto, Pygeum, Melatonin and Beta Sitosterol could be helpful in reducing or slowing the effects of hair loss by balancing levels of dihydrotestosterone. In addition to the well-known hormonal influences of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone on the hair cycle, melatonin has been reported to have a beneficial effect on hair growth in animals.

    In order to avoid the side effects and inconvenience of medical treatment methods, more and more people are looking for natural alternative balding remedies. These natural treatments often carry other health benefits, as well.

    Hair Loss Studies:

    “…60% of (6/10) study subjects dosed with the active study formulation of beta sitosterol and Saw-Palmetto were rated as improved at the final visit.” ~ Clinical Research and Development Network, Aurora, CO, USA.

    “Melatonin increases anagen hair rate in women with androgenetic alopecia or diffuse alopecia: results of a pilot randomized controlled trial.” ~ Br J Dermatol. 2004 Feb;150(2):341-5.
