Early Studies Suggest that Shiitake Extract May Help Fight HPV
Laybio firmly believes the nutrition fact of herb extracts, but, as a responsible company, is skeptical about any herb supplements lofty health claim that without data support. There are a lot of “hokey” supplements out there, especially in the cancer sphere. Herbal pills and vitamins with difficult-to-pronounce names often claim they can “cure cancer” without the side effects of conventional medicine like chemotherapy and radiation.
All of this being said, there are some supplements out there that have been tested in humans and animals and do have the data to support their efficacies. Professor Dr. Kohei Homma, a leading Japanese biochemist on molecular biology research has worked extensively to understand the immune system to fight various diseases. Dr. Homma’s recent work shows that shiitake extract, may have significant positive impact over HPV caused cancers by regulating the body’s immune system.
HPV or Papillomaviridae is an ancient taxonomic family of non-enveloped DNA viruses, collectively known as papillomaviruses. HPV has been associated with the development of cervical cancer, anal cancer, penile cancer and oral cancers. AHCC is an alpha-glucan rich nutritional supplement produced from the mycelia of shiitake mushrooms.
Early data including data from blinded test give promising results of the shiitake extracts studies. Dr. Judith Smith, associate professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston, hopes that in the near future gynecologists and gynecologic oncologists may suggest the supplement to their patients who test positive for HPV.
As more and more research data support the benefits of shiitake extract, countless manufacturers in China begun to promote their extract products. Unfortunately, most of the products did not go through the right extraction process which takes time. "Shiitake extract without right extraction process cannot benefit cancer patient" said Research Director of Laybio, Dr Huang, "high quality products do not necessarily mean expensive products. An easy way to acquire affordable product with good quality is to buy directly from manufacturers such as Laybio."
