About 225 kinds of compounds were isolated from Antrodia camphorata. These compounds include macromolecular compounds (proteins, nucleic acids, polysaccharides, etc.), small molecule compounds (lignin, aromatics, benzoquinones, maleic acid and succinic acid derivatives, etc.), terpenoids (monoterpenes, diterpenes) , lanolin-type triterpenoids, ergosterol-type triterpenoids, steroids, etc.), nucleotide compounds (bases, nucleosides, etc.), fatty acids and fatty acid esters.
Studies have shown that polysaccharides, terpenoids, steroids, maleic acid and succinic acid derivatives are the main active compounds of Antrodia camphorata, which have the functions of protecting the liver, fighting cancer, regulating immunity, eliminating allergies, detoxification and anti-inflammatory.
