Antimicrobial

The incredible Fomes fomentarius mushroom just keeps impressing me, and hopefully you as well.

Extracts of the fungus were shown to have antimicrobial activity against 9 bacterial strains: 1) Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923)

2) Staphylococcus epidermidis (ATCC 12228)


3) Micrococcus luteus (ATCC 9341)

4) Bacillus subtilis (ATCC 6633)

5) Enterococcus feacalis (ATCC 29212)

6) Escherichia coli (ATCC 25922)

7) Klebsiella pneumoniae (NCIMB 9111)

8) Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 27853)

9) Salmonella abony (ATCC 13076)

It was found that the high content of polyphenols in Tinder Conk is what gives it the antimicrobial properties.
