The wild fungal strain (100% matched DNA sequence approved by the Food Industry Research and Development Institute) of Antrodia camphorata that grows the fastest with the most abundant active ingredient was strictly selected and stored in liquid nitrogen.   The selected fungal strain is recovered and cultured in petri dishes before planting in cultivation bags containing special medium (Cultivation Patent No. 191762 in various countries worldwide). The cultures are kept in a specific environmental condition that enables the growth of fruiting bodies.  
  A patented stage extraction method (Patent No. I352612) is used to process the 100% raw ingredient. After edible alcohol is added to the ingredient, the Antrodia camphorata fruiting bodies are soaked for 30 days to extract the active layer of the triterpenoids (alcohols are totally evaporated). The extracted raw material is further extracted by hot water; at this time, the soluble polysaccharides will be massively released. Lastly, the extract produced from the multiple extraction procedures are dried respectively and mixed by a specific ratio.
  A cultivation bag weighs 1Kg. The fruiting bodies can only be collected after several complicated cultivating procedures and after the culture medium is removed. Then, through high temperature, high pressure steaming, the fruiting bodies are broken to fully release triterpenoids in fungal spores. When those components are heat dried, only 0.06Kg of the precious pure ingredient remains.  


Received prizes from several countries worldwide on the cultivation, and the health function patent received Excellent Project Award (livelihood medicine group) from the Ministry of Economic Affairs Approved by Taiwan SNQUS FDAJapan's Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare Approved by Taipei Medical University IRB for human clinical trials

Through several strict cultivation and extraction procedures, Well Shine Antrodia camphorata fruiting body requires at least 120-day attentive care. At the same time, the product has passed several tests from the Department of Health, including heavy metal, insecticide, pesticide, microorganism, plasticizer analysis. The national award of SNQ and Excellent Project Award (livelihood medicine group) of Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs, in 2004 have also been received. It is a well recognition and highly honored.
