mushroom complex

In the Vancouver, BC area there are some veterinarians who are able to prescribe an important medicinal mushroom complex to their patients, the dogs and cats that enter their doors for cancer therapy. In some cases, horses are also able to use the mushroom complex, which has the medicinal mushroom Coriolus versicolor. Coriolus is a popular health care supplement for humans who have cancer or other ailments.

Cancer strikes both human and animals in North America at alarming rates. Although genetics or hereditary factors could be involved, environmental toxins, diet, exercise, and other variables can also be factors in people or their pets developing cancer.

Just as there are traditional therapies, or the worst-case scenario of putting animals to sleep if the cancer has taken its foothold too deeply in the body, there are some fantastic alternative therapies available that have an excellent success rate for fighting cancer—the fungus Coriolus versicolor is one of those mushrooms in some mushroom complex formulas that may help the survival rates of animals nationwide, just as they are in the UK.

Coriolus versicolor mushroom complex provides health benefits to humans and animals

Mycology is the study of fungi, particularly mushrooms, covered in articles like is found at the Medicinal Mushroom Information Center. The details of mushroom complex formulas that include Coriolus versicolor is also often discussed by the famous American mycologist, Paul Stamets (VIDEO), who says Coriolus is good for treating breast cancer, stomach cancer, prostate cancer, among other types of cancer, and also helps build the immune system in humans.

The same could be said for animals since mice studies show promising results in anti-cancer therapies using Coriolus versicolor (also called Turkey Tail, or Yun Zhi) or other mushroom complex. Coriolus versicolor (or Trametes versicolor) has been shown to have tremendous health benefits to biological systems in dogs and cats, or even horses.

The Veterinary care in the UK are using 500mg tablets of Coriolus versicolor (supplied by MRL Ltd) for the “palliative care of dogs and cats with a variety of terminal cancers. Preliminary reports indicate that the pets demonstrate increased energy appetite and well being with improvement in their quality of life and overall life expectancy. Mycoplex Coriolus Powder is also being used to great effect in sport horses suffering from post viral syndrome and has shown some promising results in reducing new sarcoid (skin tumour) growth.”
