Auricularia auricula is commonly known as Judas's ear fungus or Jew's Ear. It has been used for centuries in China, particularly to cure hemorrhoids and strengthen the body. Sometimes it is also used to treat hemoptysis, angina, diarrhea, and ward against gastrointestinal upset.
Black Fungus Extract is very famous because of its anticoagulant activity.The polysaccharide from Black Fungus contains mainly mannose, glucose, glucuronic acid and xylose but no sulfate esters.Its anticoagulant activity was due to catalysis of thrombin inhibition by antithrombin but not by heparin cofactor II. Inhibition of Factor Xa by antithrombin was not catalyzed by the polysaccharide.
