Constituents of PORIA



The primary constituent of hoelen is fiber; it is in the form of beta-glucan (chains of sugar, mostly glucose; a polysaccharide), called pachyman.  This component makes up 91–98% of the dried fungal mass, most of it being an insoluble fiber; there is virtually no lipid (less than 0.15%) and little protein (8).  To make decoctions, the mushroom mass is sliced very thin (see photo). When cooked in water to make an herbal tea, most of the insoluble fiber is left behind (though some becomes suspended by the boiling process), and virtually all the soluble fiber enters the water, forming a somewhat cloudy material.






The following table summarizes most of these, with the % hoelen in each formula taken from Thousand Formulas and Thousand Herbs of Traditional Chinese Medicine (12):

The dosage of hoelen used in decoctions as indicated in most Chinese herb texts varies from 9–15 grams for spleen/stomach disorders to 30–45 grams for edema (13).  Even higher doses have been recommended.  For example, in a treatment for schizophrenia, 60 grams of the herb was decocted for the daily dose given for 1–3 months (14).  The herb has very low toxicity.  In the traditional categorization of the herb, it is considered without taste (bland or slightly sweet) and neutral in nature (that is, relative to warming or cooling properties).  In the formulas listed in the table above where the decoction form is used, 9 grams was indicated in each case for the quantity of hoelen, the lowest dose recommended in the Materia Medica.  Generally, reports from modern Chinese clinical work indicate use of somewhat larger amounts than that (typically 10–30 grams for a one day dose).  By contrast, hoelen is sometimes incorporated into pills, either as a powder or extract, and its daily dosage in that case is quite low. 


The glucans may have a soothing effect on the stomach and intestines, which can explain the role of hoelen in formulas that treat nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, stomachache, and stomach ulcer, as well as cases of excess phlegm production that may result from stomach irritation (15).  This effect will be stronger in decoctions than with the pills because of the higher dosage involved, but even the lower dosages may have an effect due to direct contact of the herb constitutents with the stomach and upper portion of the intestines. 


The triterpenes may be responsible for other claimed effects, such as diuretic activity; hoelen is often combined with alisma (zexie), which also has triterpenes and is considered a diuretic (16).  In addition, these compounds can also have a benefit for the digestive system.  The amount of the triterpenes in hoelen is small, so in order to get an effect of them outside of the stomach and upper intestine, it is important to use decoctions or dried decoctions (e.g.  for treating edema and insomnia).


The attribution of a sedative effect to hoelen (and especially to fu-shen, which is now defined as the smaller hoelen fungus with the pine root embedded in it) seems largely the result of the imagination of the ancient alchemists (17) and there is currently little supporting evidence for it.  Hoelen was originally thought to arise as the result of transformation of pine resin.  It was said that after a thousand years residing in the ground, the resin became hoelen; after another thousand years, it became fushen; after another thousand years, it become amber (hopu, which is, in fact, derived from pine resin); and after yet another thousand years, it became crystal quartz (the term “thousand years” means a long time, and not the specific duration).   The pine tree is itself a symbol of calmness, and the four “derivatives of pine resin” described here are all considered sedatives of increasing potency to accompany the aging in the ground under the influences of earthly and heavenly qi.   While this story in interesting, it raises the question whether the fungus truly has significant sedative properties, since its constituents are entirely different from pine roots, amber, and quartz.
