Poria mushroom, scientifically known as Wolfiporia extensa, is a medicinal mushroom that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Also referred to as "Fu Ling" or "Hoelen," Poria is a type of fungus that grows underground, forming large sclerotia with a cork-like texture. This mushroom is highly valued for its potential health benefits and is considered an important adaptogenic herb in traditional herbal practices. Poria is believed to have various medicinal properties, including diuretic, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory effects. It is often used to support kidney and urinary health, as well as to promote fluid balance in the body. Additionally, Poria is used to support digestive health, calm the mind, and strengthen the spleen. In traditional Chinese medicine, Poria is frequently combined with other herbs in herbal formulas to enhance their effects. Modern scientific research has also shown interest in Poria's bioactive compounds, including polysaccharides and triterpenes, which may contribute to its potential health benefits.
