Description

I thought this was a neat tidbit from an article ...

"Wild mushrooms are used as both food and medicine by various ethnic groups in Ethiopia. The Kaffa people in southwest Ethiopia use the fruiting body of Laetiporus sulphureus to relieve stomach pain and to expel a woman's retained placenta following childbirth. However, no clinical studies have been conducted to validate the medical claims ascribed to this mushroom and no chemical compound contained in the mushroom has been identified as a possible agent responsible for the mushroom's metabolic effects."

The Huck Institute of Life Sciences comparative metabolomic (metabolite profiling) study of Laetiporus sulphureus was conducted on the basis of ethnomycological information obtained from the Kaffa. The goal of the study was to identify the therapeutic compound unique to this mushroom. Enoxolone (glycyrrhetinic acid) was found to be the compound unique to Laetiporus sulphureus. Enoxolone is the compound responsible for the antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of licorice."
