Antrodia camphorata Fruiting Body Powder



The article consists of the dried fruiting bodies of Antrodia camphorata (M. Zang & C.H. Su) Sheng H. Wu, Ryvarden & T.T. Chang (Family Polyporaceae) reduced to a powder or very fine powder. It is also commonly known as Antrodia cinnamomea T.T. Chang & W.N. Chou. It contains NLT 5% of triterpenoic acids, calculated as the sum of antcin A, antcin B, antcin C, antcin H, antcin K, dehydrosulfurenic acid, and dehydroeburicoic acid on the dried basis.

Hi, This is Taiwan Leader Biotech. Corp.. We are focus on the research, manufacture, and sell of Antrodia cinnamomea. According to the Herbal Medicines Compendium in USP web site (, we would like to suggest the item of “Antrodia camphorata Fruiting Body Powder” as below: 1. In the previous study published in J. Agric. Food Chem. 2011 59:7626-35. The authors established 13 representative metabolites from the ethanol extract of A. cinnamomea fruiting body. A comparison of the metabolite profiles of different ethanol extracts from A. cinnamomea strains showed silmilar metabolites when the strains were grown on the original host wood (Cinnamomum kanehirai) and harvested after the same culture time period (9 months). Furthermore, the amounts of typical ergostane-type triterpenoids in A. cinnamomea increased with culture age. Culture substrates also influenced metabolite synthesis; with the same culture age, A. cinnamomea grown on the original host wood produced a richer array of metabolites than A. cinnamomea cultured on other wood species. Therefore, analysis of a fixed group of compounds including triterpenoids, benzolics, and polyacetylenes constitutes a suitable, reliable system to evaluate the quality of ethanol extract from A. cinnamomea fruiting bodies. 2. We would like to suggest the method described in above reference that may provide a better platform for analysis of “Antrodia camphorata Fruiting Body Powder”.
