It is regarded as the ‘guardian of respiratory health’ and is known to improve the functioning of the heart, kidney and other vital organs of the body. It also combats sexual dysfunction and above all, it is the only medicine available so far to have made organ transplants possible in human beings. Due to its peculiar characteristics, habitat, morphology and being a store house of medicinal properties, it is a highly prized mushroom costing Rs. 80,000 to 1.0 lakh kg-1 of dried fungus in India and much higher in the International market.
