Polyporus umbellatus is a rare[citation needed], edible species of mushroom, found growing on roots of old beeches or oak. It is also called lumpy bracket and umbrella polypore.


The fruit body is composed of numerous (sometimes several hundred) caps. They are 1–4 cm in diameter, deeply umbilicate, light brown, and form the extremities of a strong, many-branched stalk. The compound fungus can be up to 40 cm in diameter. The pores are narrow and white. The stalk is whitish-grey and originates from a strong, tuber-like nodule that is underground. The flesh is white, rather soft when young, although hardens with age.

Flavour and use 

Over the past few decades, researchers have found this taxon to contain many bioactive compounds shown to be responsible for antitumor, anticancer, antioxidant, free radical scavenging, immune system enhancement, and antimicrobial activities. Due to its promising medicinal value, P. umbellatus is used as an ingredient in many medicinal products and food supplements.

Pleasant sweet odour when young, less so when decaying. The taste is initially sweet, ultimately becoming acrid when the fruitbody is fully grown and begins to decay.

Medicinal Properties

Polyporus umbellatus is a saprophytic mushroom that grows on withered beech and maple trees roots. Its sclerotium, called Zhuling, is a crude drug commonly used for urological disorders in Chinese medicine because of its diuretic effect (i.e. promoting urination).  A number of studies have shown that P. umbellatus has a variety of medicinal properties, which are summarized below.

  • Anti-tumor effects: Polysaccharides extracted from the mycelial culture of P. umbellatus and administered intraperitoneally into white mice at a dosage of 300 mg/kg inhibited the growth of Sarcoma 180 and Ehrlich solid cancers by 70% and 80%, respectively.
  • Diuretic effects: Zhuling was originally described in Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing as having diuretic action and was used mainly for edema and dysuria. Clinical studies have confirmed that Polyporus umbellatus is an effective diuretic, without side effects, for the treatment of pyelonephritis, nephritis and urologic calculi.
  • Antioxidant and free-radical scavenging activity: In one study, it was demonstrated that Chuling in vitro protects red blood cells from 2,2-azo-bis(2-amidinopropane)dihydrochloride (AAPH)-induced hemolysis. The inhibitory effect was dose-dependent at concentrations of 50 to 1000 µg/ml. The main free-radical scavengers involved, the triterpene carboxylic acids isolated from the methanol extract, polyporusterone A and polyporusterone B, were found to have inhibitory activities against AAPH-induced lysis of red blood cells.
  • Immune system enhancement: Polyporus umbellatus polysaccharides were found to improve the cellular immunity of normal mice and mice with liver lesions.
  • Hair growth: P. umbellatus extract was shown to promote hair growth in mice, and 3,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde was isolated as an active component (Inaoka et al., 1994). A later study isolated three hair regrowth substances, acetosyringe and polyporusterone A and B (Ishida et al., 1999). The latter two compounds have been isolated and characterized.
