WHAT IS TIGER MILK MUSHROOM (Lignosus Rhinocerus)?

Tiger Milk Mushroom (TMM) is one of the highly regarded medicinal mushroom with more than 400 years history of use in the country. It has traditionally been used to relieve symptoms of respiratory illnesses such as cough, cold and sinusitis. TMM is also used as a health tonic to promote vitality. According to folklore, Tiger Milk Mushroom was grown from the spot where the tigress dripped her milk while feeding the cubs, hence its name.


Tiger Milk Mushroom is a rare species and difficult to be collected

Wild type can only be found in tropical forests, including Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Southern China and Papua New Guinea.


Cultivation preserves the medicinal properties of Tiger Milk Mushroom

Sclerotium (underground tuber) will lose its medicinal benefits when it uses the nutrients to form the fruiting body. Cultivation method allows TMM to be harvested at the best timing before the fruiting body is formed.


Tiger Milk Mushroom addresses the body’s needs as a whole via mechanism of cleansing, restoring, rejuvenating and protecting

Studies support Tiger Milk Mushroom’s potential as health promotion agent. Sclerotial polysaccharides (active compound) of TMM improve health. TMM is a comprehensive approach to promote and improve the body’s functions.


WHAT IS CORDYCEPS SINENSIS?

Cordyceps sinensis, also known as caterpillar fungus has a long medicinal history of use in China and the Orient. It was an exclusive privilege of the royalty in ancient Chinese. This fungus infects the caterpillars during late autumn and eventually replaces the host’s tissue, sprouting its fruiting body above ground in the next spring and summer. Wild cordyceps sinensis is found only at high altitudes on the Himalayan plateau and thus making it difficult to harvest.


Modern cultivation technology has made this rare medicinal fungus more widely available and affordable

One of the world leading cultivator of medicinal mushrooms (Aloha Medicinals) successfully cultivated the Cordyceps sinensis that is genetically and analytically bio-identical to the wild type harvested in the mountains of Tibet. This fungus is organically grown in low oxygen and low temperature, just as in nature. When compared with wild type, Aloha cultivated Cordyceps contains higher concentration of HEAA (Hydroxyethyl adenosine Analog), an unique bioactive compound that has been identified to possess major health properties. Besides, it does not contains insect residue and is suitable to vegetarian. Aloha cultivated Cordyceps grows in a controlled environment. It is free of environmental pollutants and heavy metals.


Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Uses

Cordyceps has traditionally been consumed as tonic food to invigorate the overall health.


Energy, Endurance and Exercise

Cordyceps is used by elderly to combat fatigue and reduce weakness. A study showed that a group of healthy elderly adults (average age of 65) who consumed Cordyceps had a significant increase in energy output and oxygen capacity during exercise.
