Antroquinonol is a kind of compound extracted from Antrodia Cinnamomea Chang and Chou, a rare medicinal fungus that grows naturally inside the Cinnamonum kanehirae tree trunk, a native tree species of Taiwan. It can be used in the treatment of liver cancer and lung cancer. The so called "King of Medical Fungi" and "Ruby of Taiwan's Forest," Antrodia Cinnamomea Chang and Chou has been widely used by the Taiwanese since it can eliminate toxins, protect the liver, improve the immune system, fight allergies, and reduce blood fat. Golden Biotechnology Corporation's research department accidentally discovered Antroquinonol when it was studying the efficacy of the extract from Antrodia Cinnamomea Chang and Chou. In further study, Antroquinonol has been proven to restrain the growth and reproduction of cancer cells, thought the existing extracts take effect slowly due to low concentration of Antroquinonol. Through sophisticated extraction techniques, Golden Biotechnology Corporation acquired pure Antroquinonol, which has been granted patents in 60 countries. Pre-clinical research on Antroquinonol has been completed in the United Kingdom and in the United States the compound has been approved by the U.S. FDA to enter into first stage clinical trial.
