Draco Natural Products has announced it has introduced Standardized Full-Spectrum Extract™ Tiaga mushroom, an extract that has shown to contain anti-diabetic, anti-tumoral and anti-inflammatory benefits.
In vitro, Tiaga mushroom has demonstrated anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial activity. According to Brien Quirk, technical director for San Jose-based Draco Natural Products, a study from Tokushima Bunri University in Japan, showed that the lanostane triterpene glycosides, a similar class to those found in Reishi of sterol phytocompounds, isolated from the fruiting bodies of Fomitopsis pinicola, inhibited COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes. The inhibition of COX-2 enzymes has wide-ranging effects for healthy joint support, aches and pain, and the prevention of colon cancer.
Tiaga mushroom also contains polysaccharides which have been studied for immune- boosting and anti-cancer effects. Fomitopsis pinicola contains high amounts of naturally occurring polysaccharides as heterogalactans, all highly branched chained polysaccharides which are important for immunological actvity. In studies, polysaccharides have been proven to have immune enhancement properties which may have a dramatic impact on every organ, disease and system of the body.
