Champignon is an extract of the Agaricus bisporus mushroom, also known as the white or button mushroom.
In human studies, champignon was shown to increase creatinine clearance and arrest the progression of renal failure.
Cordyceps sinensis is a fungus that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Cordyceps has been shown to improve lab markers of renal dysfunction, including reducing BUN and creatinine levels, while improving kidney function in human test subjects. Cordyceps also decreased mortality in animal models of chronic kidney failure and appears to be protective of the kidneys as it decreases renal necrotic tissue and reduces the expression of immunoglobulin proteins ICAM-1
and VCAM-1, indicating anti-inflammatory properties.
Poria cocos, also known in Chinese as fu ling, is another fungus used in traditional Chinese medicine. In animal models of anti-glomerular basement membrane nephritis, a rare autoimmune disorder of the kidneys, the fungus was found to prevent urinary protein secretion and reduce the degree of histopathological changes associated with renal tissue damage in the test animals.
