Piptoporus betulinus, formerly known as Fomitopsis betulina, is one of the most commonly used healing mushrooms around the world. And if you’re really committed to giving your pet the quality of life you’ve always wanted using natural means, then Piptoporus Betulinus is one fungi you should know about.


A Medicinal Go-To Mushroom Worldwide

A folk medicine staple in various cultures around the world, Piptoporus betulinus has been traditionally used as a natural remedy for the treatment of wounds, keeping parasites at bay as well as treating gastrointestinal issues.

What’s really interesting is that modern scientific studies reveal that besides containing compounds that have antimicrobial and antiparasitic capabilities, this mushroom has also been seen to boost the immune system and help fight off cancer cells.

If you follow along all the way through, we’ll also check out some of the positive comments from pet parents who have already experienced the beneficial effects of Piptoporus betulinus on their pets that have been afflicted with cancer.

Moreover, I’d just like to point out that Piptoporus betulinus is the main ingredient of Zumalka’s PIPTOPET, a product that has already changed the quality of life of so many pets suffering from cancer with incredible results.

How about we begin our discussion by having a quick walkthrough on what Piptoporus Betulinus is?


A Quick Walkthrough on Piptoporus betulinus

At its simplest, Piptoporus betulinus is a type of mushroom that typically grows only on birch trees. Its texture is similar to that of a cork and is shaped like a hoof. This mushroom used to be called Fomitopsis betulina in botany. Its common names include razor strop, birch bracket, as well as birch polypore.

What’s really interesting about Piptoporus betulinus is that it’s one of the most widely used medicinal mushrooms in the world. Apart from relieving gastrointestinal pain, this mushroom is also traditionally used as antiseptic for wounds and warding off parasites.

Believe it or not, the medicinal uses of Piptoporus Betulinus can be traced back for thousands of years and it’s still being used as a natural medicine in various cultures across the globe until now.

Now let’s check out how Piptoporus Betulinus is commonly used in traditional medicine…


How Piptoporus betulinus is used to Harness its Medicinal Properties

There’s a very specific reason why we chose the Piptoporus betulinus mushroom as the main ingredient of our PIPTOPET product.

Apart from being very versatile, it can also be used either fresh or in a dried state without affecting its natural potency, particularly its immune system-boosting and anti-cancer properties. Unlike some medicinal mushrooms, Piptoporus betulinus has a rubbery texture and is not commonly used in culinary applications.

The most popular and straightforward application of this medicinal mushroom is by slicing it into small pieces then putting them in a pot of water. The whole thing is then simmered on low heat until the color of the water slightly becomes brown. This gives you Piptoporus betulinus tea.

This tea has a pronounced yet tolerable bitter taste. Some people like to sweeten it with a bit of honey. Others even add a little lemon juice for extra flavor. Moreover, if you allow this tea to boil for much longer in the pot, it will give you Piptoporus betulinus concentrate.

Traditionally, this concentrate can be used directly on wounds to disinfect them as well as treat gastrointestinal issues like constipation, indigestion, stomach pain, and getting rid of parasites, among others.

Another application for Piptoporus betulinus is making it into powder. After drying this medicinal mushroom out in the sun until it becomes hard and rigid, you can simply put it in the blender or food processor and you’ll have Piptoporus betulinus powder.

Piptoporus betulinus powder can be mixed with hot water and used as tea. It can also be added to your favorite beverages like coffee, tea or milk.


Scientific Proof of the Medicinal Properties of Piptoporus betulinus

See, several scientific studies have already been conducted on the medicinal properties of Piptoporus betulinus through the years. And a lot of scientific experts have concluded that this mushroom does possess inherent elements and compounds that have medicinal capabilities.

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) reports that besides being seen to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-viral, and antiparasitic properties, experiments conducted using extracts gathered from Piptoporus betulinus show that it can also boost the immune system and prevent brain degradation.

And what makes Piptoporus betulinus even more amazing is that these studies also reveal that this medicinal mushroom also has anti-cancer properties. Based on the results of these scientific studies, Piptoporus Betulinus extracts not only stimulated cancer cell death, but prevented cancer cells from spreading to other parts of the body as well.


A Natural Product Made From Piptoporus betulinus That’s Designed to Help Keep Cancer in Pets At Bay

Like I mentioned earlier, Piptoporus betulinus is the main active ingredient of PIPTOPET. This natural product is designed to boost your pet’s immune system health, so he won’t be easily vulnerable to diseases, especially against cancer.

Allow me to share a few testimonials from pet parents who have already tried using PIPTOPET on their animal loved ones….
