Your will receive 1 ounce of dried Fomitopsis Pinicola cut into chunks. Many drink it as a tea or grind it up and put into capsules. Fomitopsis Pinicola has been used in folk medicine as anti-inflammatory, styptic, and antimicrobial.
Ethanol extract showed the greatest activity against cancer cells, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial actions.
Water-soluble Polysaccharide glucans have immune-modulating activity Use as a tonic to reduce inflammation of the digestive tract. Possibly by controlling cytokine inflammatory response In one study Fomitopsis pinicola demonstrated very high phenolics concentration and powerful anti-oxidant properties.
High in germanium – an anti-oxidant, anti-cancer, anti-mutagenic, and oxygen catalyst, enhances oxygen supply to the body’s cell’s providing increased energy production.
Blood sugar regulation by normalizing and regulating insulin production due to the hypoglycemic glycans.
Liver detoxifier by bitter terpenoids aiding the removal of toxins in the liver and intestines.
Increases neutrophil count and other white blood cells.
Contains natural steroids that can be useful in arthritis and painful auto-immune and inflammatory diseases.
The concentration of triterpenes (hepato-protective, anti-inflammatory) is highest in the crust, and lower in younger fungi. Contains anti-histamine vegetable sterols. Fatty acids exhibit circulatory stimulating properties. Selectively inhibits COX-2, in turn inhibiting synthesis of inflammatory prostaglandins. Selective COX-2 inhibitors are significant, as NSAIDs like aspirin are also COX-1 inhibitors and use of COX-1 inhibitors increases risk of gastric ulcers. “Because of their bioactivity against gram-positive bacteria, and their potency as anti-fungal agent, we especially consider F. pinicola to be worth further investigation on a molecular level. This fungus was widely applied in traditional European medicine, but its benefits and utilization have been forgotten after the introduction of synthetic drugs. Due to renaissance of naturopathy and also due to increasing bacterial and fungal resistances, working with traditional medicinal fungi is becoming increasingly interesting and rewarding.”
Fomitopsis pinicola Taxonomy & Etymology The Red-belted Bracket was first described scientifically in 1810 by (NB: we assume but as yet have no reference source for confirmation) Swedish botanist Olof Swartz (1760 – 1818), who gave it the binomial scientific name Boletus pinicola. In 1881 the Finnish mycologist Petter Adolf Karsten (1834 – 1917) transferred this species to the new genus Fomitopsis, which he set up at that time, thus establishing the Red-belted Bracket’s currently-accepted scientific name Fomitopsis pinicola. Synonyms of Fomitopsis pinicola include Boletus pinicola Sw., and Polyporus pinicola (Sw.) Fr. Fomitopsis pinicola is the type species of the genus Fomitopsis. Fomitopsis, the generic name, means ‘similar in appearance to Fomes’ (the latter being genus containing Fomes fomentarius, the Hoof Fungus, with which the Red-belted Bracket is sometimes confused. The specific epithet pinicola means inhabiting (living on) Pinus species, in other words, pine trees.

Fomitopsis pinicola Tea Recipe Ingredients 1/2 cups of fresh red-belted polypores (chopped as finely as you have the patience for) 1-quart water How to cook Place chopped polypore in a large pot, and cover with the water. Bring the water to a boil (make sure the mushrooms are already in the pot, as heating them from air temperature up to boiling and beyond is important for the extraction process). Boil water for 20-30 minutes. Strain through a mesh strainer, and enjoy! A decoction can be stored in the fridge for up to five days. The first time you make this recipe, drink a small cup, then wait 24 hours before consuming additional tea or other mushroom products. As a rule, it is always sound to eat a small amount of mushrooms (or mushroom extractions) at first, and only try one harvested mushroom at a time. Wait a full 24 hours before consuming additional mushrooms.
