About 40 dropperfuls per 1 fl oz bottle. That's dropperfuls, not drops. Trametes versicolor is perhaps the most effective cancer-fighter of the immunoceutical mushrooms.
We offer Fungi Perfecti’s alcohol-based medicinal mushroom extracts, in 1 and 2 fluid ounce bottles, made from pure mushroom mycelium cultured on Certified Organic brown rice. 30 drops of extract is equivalent to 1 gram of mushroom mycelium/fruitbodies, and can be consumed directly or mixed into your favorite beverage.
Following are excerpts from an article by Parris M. Kidd, PhD: Immunoceuticals can be considered as substances having immunotherapeutic efficacy when taken orally. More than 50 mushroom species have yielded potential immunoceuticals that exhibit anticancer activity in vitro or in animal models and of these, six have been investigated in human cancers. All are non-toxic and very well tolerated. Lentinan and schizophyllan have little oral activity. Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC) is poorly defined but has shown early clinical promise. Maitake D-Fraction has limited proof of clinical efficacy to date, but controlled research is underway. Two proteoglycans from Coriolus versicolor [also called Trametes versicolor] - PSK (Polysaccharide-K) and PSP (Polysaccharide-Peptide) - have demonstrated the most promise. In Japanese trials since 1970, PSK significantly extended survival at five years or beyond in cancers of the stomach, colon-rectum, esophagus, nasopharynx, and lung (non-small cell types), and in a HLA B40-positive breast cancer subset. PSP was subjected to Phase II and Phase III trials in China.
In double-blind trials, PSP significantly extended five-year survival in esophageal cancer. PSP significantly improved quality of life, provided substantial pain relief, and enhanced immune status in 70-97 percent of patients with cancers of the stomach, esophagus, lung, ovary, and cervix. PSK and PSP boosted immune cell production, ameliorated chemotherapy symptoms, and enhanced tumor infiltration by dendritic and cytotoxic T-cells. Their extremely high tolerability, proven benefits to survival and quality of life, and compatibility with chemotherapy and radiation therapy makes them well suited for cancer management regimens. (Altern Med Rev 2000;5(1):4-27) Coriolus versicolor (formerly Trametes versicolor, Polyporus versicolor) is a mushroom which grows on tree trunks and belongs to the more-advanced Basidiomycetes class of fungi.
This mushroom has long been treasured in the East; in Japan it is known as kawaratake ('mushroom by the river bank'), and in China it is called Yun Zhi or 'cloud fungus.' In Japan around 1965 a chemical engineer investigated Coriolus versicolor for its anticancer constituents after observing his neighbor's life-threatening cancer was cured after taking Yun Zhi. This led to the discovery of PSK (Polysaccharide-K).21
