Phellinus Mushroom History
Phellinus is a polypore that grows wild on various tree species. Some claim that the true Phellinus grows primarily on Mulberry but there seems to be a number of closely aligned variant species, P.baumii the most common. Cultivation has been ongoing for about twenty years.
Phellinus Mushroom Uses
There has been a significant amount of research in Korea, most of it focused on the immunological activities of this mushroom. By all accounts, this mushroom is considered a potent immunomodulator.
Proudly Made in China
In 1996, CEO and Founder of Nammex, Jeff Chilton organized organic mushroom production in China. That initiative paid off and today all Nammex mushrooms are grown or wildcrafted deep in the mountains of China by our Certified Organic production partners. Learn more about our growers in China.

US lab-grown Phellinus is mycelium grown on grain. Analysis has shown that US Phellinus mycelium on grain has low levels of beta-glucan and very high levels of starch. Nammex only uses 100% organic fruiting bodies which are rigorously tested and guaranteed for active compounds.
