Tiger milk mushroom (TMM; Lignosus rhinocerus) supplementation was investigated on 50 voluntary participants.
Participants were required to take 300 mg of TMM twice daily for three months.
Pulmonary function and respiratory symptoms were assessed during baseline and monthly follow-up visits.
Results demonstrated that supplementation of TMM significantly suppressed the levels of proteins IL-1β and IL-8, which can cause inflammation in the airways and lead to respiratory symptoms like coughing and wheezing.
TMM also decreased the levels of MDA, a marker of oxidative stress which can damage the cells in the respiratory system.
This resulted in an improvement in lung function and a decrease in respiratory symptoms.
In addition to that, TMM also increased the levels of IgA, an antibody that helps to protect the body from infections, and total antioxidant capacity, which can help to protect the respiratory system from oxidative stress and reduce the risk of respiratory diseases.
Study evaluating effects of Tiger Milk Mushroom on pulmonary function and respiratory symptoms
300mg of Tiger Milk Mushroom was taken twice daily for 3 months
IL-1β and IL-8 protein levels, known to cause airway inflammation and respiratory symptoms, are significantly suppressed
MDA levels, a marker of oxidative stress causing respiratory system damage, are decreased
IgA levels, which protect against infection, increased
Total antioxidant capacity increased, protecting the respiratory system and reducing the risk of respiratory diseases
Lung function improved
Respiratory symptoms decreased
Lignosus employs a comprehensive 4-step mechanism to enhance respiratory health and reinforce lung care.
Acts as a natural detoxifier, cleaning impurities from the respiratory tract.
Naturally, your body will cough to help expel these impurities.
Revitalizes and restores cellular metabolism in the lungs, rejuvenating damaged lung tissues.
Enhances immune and inflammatory response in the lungs, sinuses and bronchial tubes.
Reinforces natural defenses in the lungs, lowering the risk of future damage.
Lignosus helps to suppress the proteins that cause hypersensitivity in the airways. By doing so, airway irritation is minimized and overall lung function improves.
Lignosus is particularly beneficial for individuals who suffer from restrictive and obstructive lung diseases such as asthma, COPD, emphysema, bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis,and bronchiectasis.
