    Mushrooms have traditionally been valued in Asia for their nutritional and medicinal qualities. The Coriolus versicolor or "Turkey Tail" mushroom has been investigated in numerous laboratory, animal and human clinical studies. Most of these studies have demonstrated that it does appear to have significant antimicrobial, antiviral and antitumor properties when used as a supplement to chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy. Human trials have included randomization, a process that decreases bias, but only one has used blinding, which would make them even more protected against biases.

Sloan-Kettering - Astragalus - 0 views

    Astragalus root is used in traditional medicine for its immunestimulating properties. Chinese studies suggest that astragalus, when used with angelica, has renal protective effects (6). In addition, astragalus decreases the proteinuria associated with idiopathic membranous nephropathy (7) as well as possesses natriuretic action (8). Astragalus may also suppress airway hyperreactivity associated with allergic asthma in vivo (9). An herbal formula using astragalus as a major ingredient has been shown to reduce fatigue in athletes (10). Furthermore, astragalus increases M-cholinergic receptor density in senile rats (11), which suggests that it may have a role in combating senility.
