Coriolus VPS Review / Coriolus VPS Side Effects

Super strength Coriolus VPS is one of the most potent non-prescription Corilus products in the world. Coriolus "Super-Strength" and PSP are used to maintain, protect or restore immune health.

What is Coriolus VPS?

Known as Krestin or PSK in Japan, and as PSP or Yun zhi in China, the hot water extract of this medicinal mushroom is the world's most thoroughly researched supplement for immune health. There have been more than 400 animal studies and over a dozen placebo-controlled human clinical studies published in peer reviewed medical journals.

Super Strength/PSK vs. PSP: What is the Difference?

There are three different therapeutic strength extracts derived from Coriolus Versicolor. Super Strength and PSK are primarily protein linked and were developed in Japan. PSP is primarily peptide linked and was developed in China twelve years after the research on PSK was first published. To make PSP, the recipe for Super Strength/PSK is followed, then, as a final step, precipitation with alcohol is used to reduce the protein links to peptide links. The primary active compounds, the glucan structures, are unchanged by precipitation with alcohol. The glucan structure of the three different extracts is identical under NMR analysis. Coriolus Super Strength contains 600 mg per capsule vs. 400 mg per capsule for the PSP, and the Super Strength contains 42% actives vs. 30% for the PSP.

History of Coriolus

Known in China as “Yun Zhi”, literally meaning cloud mushroom or sometimes colloquially named “turkey tail mushroom", PSP has the reputation of being one of the most highly researched and potent anti-tumor mushrooms in the world. Asian mushrooms have attracted international attention for some years with studies proving that anti-tumor benefits come only from the fungal polysaccharides that bind with protein.

PSP is extracted from the deep layer of mycelia of the Yun Zhi mushroom using advanced technology. The mycelium itself is a network of fine threadlike filaments originating from the germination of spores. Unlike green plants, which convert sunlight into energy, mushroom mycelia derive their nutrients from humus. The mycelium spreads throughout the nutrient base or substrate, amassing nutrients. It is when all environmental conditions are right that the mycelia use these nutrients to produce mushrooms.

Test results using PSP:

Tests have proved that PSP is effective both in clinical patients and in animal experiments with the mushroom itself being used as a health food both in China and in Japan with use growing internationally today. It is superior to wild strains of mushroom because it has a much higher concentrate of protein-bound polysaccharide and no woody fiber cell walls surrounding the cell. This ensures that the inner nutrients can be digested easily and absorbed by the human body.

How does it work?

With cancer, biological factors tend to involve a weakened or deficient immune system, as well as the existence of the cancer virus. Coriolus contains polysaccharide peptide (PSP) and polysaccharide-K (PSK, Krestin), which may be able to fight tumor growth as well as boost the system.

Coriolus Super Strength Suggested Use

2-5 capsules twice daily, AM and PM, or more as recommended by your health care professional. Take on an empty stomach.

Coriolus PSP Product Information

PSP is a recent addition to the family of medicinal mushroom products. Developed in China, extensive clinical testing did not begin until the early 1990's.

Side Effects of Coriolus Super Strength

Coriolus mushroom is safe for most people. There have been no reported side effects so far. However, people who have received chemotherapy and the chemical PSK (which is extracted from coriolus mushroom) have experienced nausea, low white blood cell counts, and liver problems. It is unclear if these side effects were due to the chemotherapy or PSK.

Special Precautions & Warnings

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of coriolus mushroom during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Coriolus Super Strength Testimonial

“Since April, 1986, I started to use PSP and feel it is good because previously, my cancer had returned three times and was spreading through the body. In 1986, I had blood in my digestion system. The medical reports stated I was in a very serious condition. I often fainted and lost consciousness. Also I experienced a high fever. It was hard to hold on to life, my life energy seemed to be fading. I already had had six operations and after these I had chemotherapy with herbs. Before I took the PSP, I was suffering from side effects. The white blood corpuscles decreased. I vomited 10 times a day, lost my appetite. After the Chemotherapy, I always felt faint daily. After taking the PSP, the side effects decreased rapidly. Improvement in health was obvious. I no longer vomited. I was energized and once again had an appetite. Most important of all, obviously my white blood corpuscles stabilized 5000-6000. Since I used the chemotherapy, herbs and PSP, I overcame my cancer.”
