Antrodia Camphorata (AC) is a rare medical fungus that grows naturally inside the Cinnamomum kanehirae tree trunk, a native tree species of Taiwan.
AC is a precious traditional Chinese herbal medicine that shows several pharmacological effects that include the inhibition of proliferation and growth in cancer cells, the inhibition of the inflammatory response, the anti-oxidant and free-radical scavenging activities, and the prevention of hepato-toxicity.
The Chinese has used AC as a traditional remedy and a cancer preventative herbal supplement in Taiwan for over 50 years. AC is rich in flavonoids, terpenoids, polyphenolics, and polysaccharides. The known main bioactive compounds found in AC are as follows: Polysaccharides, Superoxide dismutase (SOD), and Triterpenes.
Golden Biotech uses a unique solid state fermentation process to cultivate Antrodia Camphorata to ensure that the highest quality and consistency is achieved in its manufacturing processes.
Not only are all of the progresses under CMC control, but AC is also the base for discovery for the bioactive compound, Antroquinonol®
