Medicinal mushroom extracts are especially interesting as they might be the only creature in nature, which can protect the human body from almost all of the pathogens.

The reason for this is none other than the harsh conditions (manure, hollow trees, rotting tree trucks), which medicinal mushroom species grow on. As a result they had to develop materials that would ensure their survival against harmful microorganism and pathogens.

There are very simple facts behind the medicinal mushroom extracts developed by Gabor Varga. But why are they so effective, especially when complimented with apigenin?

Clinical trials normally are not performed with medicinal mushroom powder but medicinal mushroom extract. These products are standardized with 30 to 40% polysaccharides, so their effect becomes quite exceptional. Medicinal mushroom mixtures normally perform better and therefore they should be used instead, as their effects can cumulate. The discovery of the beneficial effects of medicinal mushroom was found in a natural way. In certain areas where these medicinal mushroom species were consumed as food the population faced far fewer diseases than people living at the other side of the country who did not use this specie for eating purposes. It was already revealed in the 1970s that traditional medicinal mushrooms could regulate the full range of the immune system.

There are definitely some good quality extracts, which can be suggested to all patients and other active ingredients, which can amplify the adaptogen effect of medicinal mushroom extract. Such an active ingredient is apigenin flavonoid. A flavonoid is nothing more than a natural plant pigment that is responsible for the plants’health.

The anti intestinal cancer effects of apigenin have been confirmed in clinical trials but it was also found that it not only inhibit the development of all types of cancers but can also play a huge role in the prevention of the metastases.

Apigenin isn’t just an anti-cancer agent; we can achieve very good results treating eczema and other skin disease symptoms.

Therefore, it’s definitely worth using medicinal mushroom extract and apigenin simultaneously or to combine them with not only each other but with flavonoids as well which could be used to amplify the effect of medicinal mushroom extracts.
