Molecule found in mushrooms may boost prostate cell health

A team of scientists from Australia and Hong Kong published a report stating that a polysaccharopeptide, a molecule found in turkey tail mushrooms, appears to be 100 percent effective in supporting normal prostate cell growth and turnover in mice.


Herbal supplements and natural treatments can help a man improve his prostate health. Taking a natural supplement like Saw Palmetto may balance the body’s inflammatory response, supporting normal prostate function. Researchers have now discovered a compound taken from a mushroom for additional prostate protection.

A team of scientists from Australia and Hong Kong published a report stating that a polysaccharopeptide, a molecule found in turkey tail mushrooms, appears to be 100 percent effective in supporting normal prostate cell growth and turnover in mice.

The study, which appeared in the journal PLoS ONE, noted that unlike more traditional remedies, this one apparently targets progenitor cells, which give rise to new cells. Notably, researchers found that the polysaccharopeptide did not have any discernible side effects in laboratory rodents.

The team concluded that further investigation into natural treatments for prostate health may turn up more substances that benefit the gland without causing unpleasant physical consequences.
