Silver Ear (Tremela Fuciformis) has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat asthma, bronchitis and dry coughs.
It is also used extensively in Chinese cooking.
T. Fuciformis is high in fiber and vitamin D and is thought to stimulate the immune system, as well as lower cholesterol and blood glucose levels.
T. Fuciformis contains a unique beta-glucan that is believed to have great water-retention property making it a valuable ally in preventing and erasing wrinkles.
T. Fuciformis is therefore often combined with vitamin E, alpha-lipoic acid and Coenzyme Q10 in the production of cosmetics and facial creams as a natural method to rejuvenate skin.
