Poria cocos extract

I have checked out the article on poria cocos, which is an interesting name for a fungus or mushroom. I noted that it "has been traditionally used as a tonic to benefit the internal organs", and has a wide range of health benefits, such as having anti-bacterial and anti-cancer effects, as well as protecting the liver, prolonging life, and calming the nerves. 

I learnt from a related article that "this fungus is widely used in traditional medicine to treat chronic gastritis, acute gastroenteric catarrh, gastric atony, oedema, nephrosis, dizziness, nausea, and emesis".  Another article I read just now says that poria cocos has also been used to support the treatment of conditions such as palpitation, insomnia and so on.
