Coprinus (Coprinus comatus)

The Coprinus mushroom is very rich in mineral compounds and basic vitamins, mainly from the B group. It is one of the few mushroom species rich in vitamins C. Because of its European origin, Coprinus has been thoroughly examined. As early as in 1934, research on its blood sugar level lowering effect took place. It has anti-inflammatory actions and can reduce the negative effect of diabetes on the cardiovascular system.

CoprinusCoprinus has a protective effect on the islets of Langerhans (the cells located in the pancreas that produce insulin). Clinical studies demonstrated that the blood sugar level dropped 41%, an hour and a half after the powder was applied. Three hours after the treatment the level was still 31% lower. Even 6 hours later the blood contained 20% less sugar as without the mushroom powder. There is no significant difference between the effectiveness of Coprinus and Tolbutamids (anti-diabetic drug) – however, using the mushroom cures the cause of diabetes and there are no side effects.

The biologically active constituents of Coprinus help lower blood sugar levels and attenuate the arteriosclerotic consequences of sugar metabolism.
