Petra Remsing – veterinary practitioner

Hericium is highly valued as an edible mushroom not only in China. It grows in crevices and cavities of old deciduous trees, preferably on beech and oak trees, but can also be found on apple and walnut trees. In Germany it occurs only rarely.

It has an anti-inflammatory effect on the gastric and intestinal mucosa and is able to rebuild the gastric and intestinal mucosa. This property also makes it an important therapeutic agent in the treatment of allergies, atopic eczema in dogs or miliary eczema in cats, as well as food intolerances.

Ingredients hericenone and erinacin stimulate nerve growth factor (NGF).

NGF rebuilds the myelin sheaths of the nerves, thus regenerating the nerves. This makes it a valuable medicinal mushroom in cases of peripheral nerve damage caused by metabolic processes or trauma. Due to the positive properties of Hericium on the nerves, it has an excellent effect on anxious, restless and stressed animals.

In stomach and colon cancer, as well as tumors in the duodenum, Hericium shows an antitumor effect.
