  2. THE EFFECTS OF NATURAL VITAMINS AND ANTIOXIDANTS

    Natural medicinal fungus extracts are components of a healthy lifestyle. In developed countries, 10-40% of the population consume synthetic vitamins and mineral supplements.

Many laboratory studies and animal experiments, demographic surveys, and controlled clinical trials have been carried out to test the effects of synthetic antioxidants on the human body.

    The medical mushroom extracts as possible alternatives. We first drew the attention to a study summarizing clinical experiments (altogether 67 randomised experiments) which stated that vitamins A, E isolated from their natural environment and beta-carotene depending on the dose (the more they take the better) can shorten human life.
