Abstract

The inhibitory effects of 102 methanol extracts of 40 mycelia, 9 culture fluids, and 53 fruiting bodies of 40 strains of Ganoderma lucidum on 5α-reductase were investigated. The methanol extract of the fruiting body of each strain was found to show the strongest 5α-reductase inhibitory activity among the extracts tested.
