Pleurotus is used in veterinary medicine mainly for diseases of the musculoskeletal system.
It relaxes muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. In traditional Chinese medicine, this medicinal mushroom is used to relax the muscles of the lumbar spine. It promotes bone and cartilage formation and prevents bone decalcification.
The pleurotus promotes the formation of blood and the growth of young cells, also in the bone marrow. In numerous studies antiviral, antibacterial, antibiotic and antineoplastic as well as anti-inflammatory properties have been proven in the pleurotus.
