Pharmacological and medical properties

Fruit bodies contain eburicolic, fumaric, ricinolic, malic and citric acids, agaricinic acid (up to 16%), d-glucosamine, resins (30-70%), fats, phytosterols, glucose and mannitol, as well as various other bioactive components, including antioxidants.

Medicinal properties of larch tinder are diverse. Resinous substances have a therapeutic effect on the liver, biliary tract, show positive dynamics in lung diseases, including tuberculosis. The experience of Japanese fungotherapists has shown that tinder makes the liver secrete an enzyme that breaks down fats, so it is used for weight loss. Clinical trials of tinder, conducted in Japan, allowed us to isolate a polysaccharide, which was named lanophil. This polysaccharide makes the “lazy” liver secrete the necessary enzymes that break down glucose and fats, that is, actually restore the disturbed metabolism. After treatment, the reverse effect (gaining dropped kilograms) is not observed.

Resinous substances are also detrimental to the pathogenic flora of the bronchopulmonary tract. The antibacterial activity of mycelial culture extract against the causative agent of pseudotuberculosis in humans and animals Yersinia pseudotuberculosis has been shown.

Agaricin isolated from tinder in small doses when ingested causes a hypnotic and soothing effect.


The healing properties of the larch sponge are known from the Dioscorides prescriptions. In Russia, it was also widely known, and until the middle of the last century it was considered a traditional medicine against tuberculosis and even served as a profitable export commodity for Russia.

Preparations from larch sponge are used against debilitating night sweats in tuberculosis patients. In folk medicine, in addition to these diseases, larch sponge preparations are used for febrile diseases, diabetes, neurasthenia, increased thyroid function, pneumonia, bronchitis, lung and bronchial cancer at any stage. It is used as a powder for purulent wounds and ulcers.

Japanese traditional medicine recommends the use of larch sponge preparations for diseases of the liver, biliary organs and biliary tract, as well as to normalize weight and stabilize metabolism.

For cosmetic purposes, this tinder is used for rejuvenating and regenerating skin care, smoothing wrinkles, as well as for removing papillomas and other skin growths. In addition, the mushroom has a mild exfoliating effect.

Manufacturers of medical cosmetics claim that mushroom extract from larch sponge has powerful restorative properties, smoothes wrinkles.

It is claimed that Botafirm reduces the number of fine wrinkles by 50% in 2 weeks – a truly impressive result for decorative cosmetics.

Birch kvass

A good example of the effective use of larch tinder for skin care is birch kvass. This effervescent drink has been known since the XVII century. In those days it was called “chazhny kvass”, it was drunk for intestinal diseases, constipation, a sick liver, etc. But the most interesting evidence about him was left by the ladies of the demimonde, i.e. the kept women of the aristocrats, who could only hope for a monetary allowance while they were young and good-looking. At the beginning of the reign of Alexander I, an intrigue with this cosmetic recipe is known. Count Stishinsky had a young and very beautiful kept woman, whom he brought from Irkutsk and settled near him in a mansion on the Moika. The girl was famous for her wonderful skin and thick curly hair. Many extorted from the count the secret of his kept woman and even bribed her maids. She discovered the secret herself — kvass from chaga and larch sponge, that is, from those tree mushrooms that grew in her native Siberia: chaga — on birches, sponge — on larches. Washing and rinsing the hair with such kvass is the best remedy for acne, acne and dandruff and to maintain the skin and hair in excellent condition.

To prepare kvass, steam 4 tablespoons of chaga powder and 2 tablespoons of crushed larch sponge in a 0.5-liter thermos (at a water temperature of 50-60 ° C) for 4-5 hours. In a warm infusion, put a handful of crackers from black bread, add 5 g of dry yeast and put in a warm place for fermentation.
