Armillaria Mellea is a common fungus that produces edible fruiting bodies with a distinctive golden colour. A single specimen (The mycellium, not individual fruiting bodies) can grow to cover a vast area and it is reported that the largest living organism in the world is a related species of honey fungus covering an area of 2200 acres in Oregon, USA.
In traditional Chinese medicine, Armillaria Mellea is used to treat conditions including vertigo, dizziness, headache, stroke and convulsions. Armillaria Mellea contains high levels of polysaccharides with anti-ageing, immune modulating and anti-vertigo activity - useful for when you can't stand heights but for some reason, can't avoid them.
Several antibiotics, primarily sesquiterpene aryl esters, have been isolated from Armillaria Mellea and show strong action against gram-positive bacteria like Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Enterococcus and similar strains, as well as yeasts and other fungi. This can be useful when experiencing internal fungal infections or candida.
Traditionally, Armillaria Mellea has also been used to treat neurological conditions - and tablets of polysaccharide extracts are still prescribed in China for treating a variety of neurological conditions including Meniere's Syndrome, vertigo, epilepsy, neurasthenia, hyertension and convulsions.
