Modern people’s lives are stressful, stressed, sleep deprived, and the three meals are not normal. They are either overwork or malnutrition, which leads to decreased resistance and various diseases of civilization. When health has long been “raising the alarm”, many people are still hard to change their habits, but they don’t know how to respond.
Through the intake of antioxidant nutrients such as “polysaccharides”, not only can the body’s immunity and tissue resistance be strengthened, but it can even activate the body’s anti-cancerization or tumor cell mechanism to protect the body’s tissues and organs, and further achieve The purpose of “anti-aging and health preservation”.
The precious “activity” of polysaccharides
This “sugar” is not the other “sugar”, many people may not be able to tell. “Sugar” refers to all carbohydrates, such as glycogen, fiber, starch, etc.; “sugar” refers to sugars with sweet taste, such as glucose, maltose, etc.
Carbohydrates are classified into monosaccharides, disaccharides, oligosaccharides, and polysaccharides according to their molecular size. Among them, “polysaccharide” is formed by bonding hundreds to thousands of monosaccharide molecules, which can produce monosaccharides of decile to tens of millions of molecules after hydrolysis. Some can be digested and absorbed by the body, and some cannot be digested and absorbed by the body. Generally, the polysaccharides that can be digested by the human body include starch, paste sugar, and glycogen; indigestible polysaccharides include cellulose, gum, and pectin. But even those polysaccharides that cannot be digested and absorbed by the human body are vital to human health.
Modern people all know that “cellulose” can promote intestinal peristalsis and increase satiety, but they don’t necessarily understand the benefits of “mushroom polysaccharide” to the human body. Mushroom polysaccharides play the role of signal transmitter in the body. After interacting with receptors (protein molecules), they transmit the signals into the body and initiate an immune response. There have been many related studies in the market, showing that it has positive effects on improving immunity, anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, etc.
Mushrooms are common cooking ingredients, ranging from truffles for top French cuisine to shiitake mushrooms for common people’s delicacies, and even Ganoderma lucidum and Cordyceps for longevity. In addition to being delicious and nutritious, its advantage is that it has a variety of “active” precious ingredients, which is the so-called “functional” mushroom polysaccharide.
Activation of immune mechanism 1: Detoxification and detoxification, promotion of absorption and generation, activation of body protection mechanism
American expert Helen Rokal has decades of research experience on mushroom polysaccharides. She pointed out that modern medical immunology studies have found that mushrooms contain a variety of effective ingredients. Among them, functional mushroom polysaccharides are well known. Can regulate immune and physiological functions. Therefore, in recent years, many biotechnology industries have actively used mushroom fruiting bodies, mycelium and fermentation liquid to produce various health products such as capsules, tablets, tea bags, oral liquids and beverages.
The main source of functional polysaccharides is divided into three parts: grain polysaccharides, yeast polysaccharides and mushroom polysaccharides. Glucan is a kind of carbohydrate, which is a kind of carbohydrate, which is formed by the polymerization of glucose as a unit. In the yeast cell wall, the activity of mushroom glucan, which enters the human body, can initiate a good immune protection mechanism.
Helene Rokal said that there are more than ten kinds of mushroom glucan, each with different characteristics, and has 40 to 50 functions for the human body. The most important function is to activate immune cells such as macrophages and killer T cells, and effectively regulate immune system functions, such as cytokine production. In improving immunity, it can increase the number and activity of natural killer cells. Mushroom polysaccharides can be used to prevent various infectious diseases during illness, after recovery, early cold, repeated infections, hospitalized, and long-term antibiotics.
In addition, mushroom polysaccharides can also adjust allergies. Allergies are caused by the hyperactivity of the immune system, such as allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases. Mushroom polysaccharide has the function of two-way regulation of immunity.
Mushroom glucan has the effect of eliminating free radicals. It can detoxify and detoxify, make the liver detoxify better, and the absorption and metabolism will improve accordingly, so that people are naturally not easy to age. Especially for patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy due to cancer, moderate supplementation of mushroom glucan can increase white blood cells, improve immunity, reduce side effects of treatment, and help improve the condition.
Attachment: Suitable objects for polysaccharide drinks
Toddlers, school-age children, and the elderly (nutrition supplements); those who often catch colds and immune disorders; those who often use antibiotics; those who want to reduce fatigue and stress (students, office workers); nutritional supplements for pregnant and nursing mothers; adjustment of allergies; balance immune system Nutritional support for vegetarians; those with a family history of cancer; those who want to slow down the degree of aging; auxiliary medical care for cancer patients.
Activation of immune mechanism 2: health care and anti-aging, like a golden bell
Polysaccharides are like golden bell jars, making the upper body impossible for diseases. Health care and anti-aging must start from the intake of antioxidant nutrients in preventive medicine. Appropriate supplementation of mushroom glucan can not only enhance immunity, but also help the body build a copper wall against virus invasion. People who are not threatened by disease will not be prone to ageing and can live happier and healthier lives.
Enteroviruses tend to occur in summer and early autumn, and have now entered the peak period of enteroviruses. Timely supplementation of compound polysaccharides and probiotics from mushrooms can enhance the immunity of children. Parents may not always be able to pay attention to their children’s hygiene habits, but they can build a golden bell for their children by supplementing their polysaccharides to keep them away from the virus.
At present, there are about 12 species of mushrooms rich in organic polysaccharides, among which the representative ones are the medicinal Ganoderma lucidum, Antrodia camphorata, Yunzhi, Cordyceps, Phellinus linteus, and the edible Brazilian mushroom , Hongxi Mushroom, Willow Song Mushroom, Coral Mushroom, Shiitake Mushroom, etc. Dr. Chen Qizhen, who specializes in fungi research in Taipei and authored the book “Hundred Mushroom Banquet”, also pointed out the multi-health value of mushroom polysaccharides to optimize immunity and antioxidant power, which attracted the attention of the medical community.
Reduce the risk of newborn infections
Mushroom polysaccharides can be recognized by the human immune system, and then regulate the immune system to prevent infection and allergies. Helps pregnant and nursing mothers to recover their physical strength after delivery, maintain a balanced body, and help to secrete milk; help activate the body’s immune system, promote the formation of immune globulin in breast milk, and feed babies through breast milk to reduce the risk of newborn infections.
At the same time, it is also a good nutritional support for vegetarians. Mushroom food provides a high-quality protein source for vegetarians, and the protein content accounts for 25% to 70%. It contains seven essential amino acids required by the human body; the mushrooms still retain complete nutrients during the fermentation process, which can meet the nutritional needs of vegetarians. It can also achieve the purpose of regulating immunity and preventing cancer.
The research and development of mushroom polysaccharides are mainly based on solid-state cultivation of fruit bodies and deep liquid fermentation of mycelium. Fruit body cultivation is susceptible to climate change, cultivation time and space, and water source, soil heavy metal pollution; now, fruit bodies can be artificially planted with space bags.
Under the research and development of biotechnology professional technology, through sterile room culture and high-tech extraction, there are currently liquid, granular and gelatinous extracts in the market. Generally people use it for daily health care, and patients can also be evaluated by doctors. Below, it is recommended to use it as required, and the auxiliary effect is regularly tracked.
