The active ingredients in Maitake polysaccharide can effectively promote insulin secretion and inhibit glucagon secretion, thereby significantly reducing the body's blood sugar level and achieving the purpose of lowering blood sugar level. At the same time, it can also effectively promote the metabolism of liver fat and blood lipids, and reduce the levels of cholesterol, triglycerides and phospholipids in hyperlipidemia serum. The blood pressure can be adjusted in both directions.
In addition, the polysaccharide compound of Maitake also has the function of inhibiting HIV activity, which is concluded by the research experiment of Professor Chibo Hiroaki from Japan University of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Not only that, Kubo's research also showed that a variety of Maitake polysaccharides can effectively reduce the transformation of experimental hepatitis to autoimmune chronic hepatitis.
Generally speaking, Maitake does have a lot of effects, and it has many benefits to our human body when used properly.
The anti-cancer effect has been recognized by many countries
Namba Hiroaki and other researchers in Japan have conducted research on medicinal fungi such as Ganoderma lucidum, shiitake mushrooms, matsutake, Hericium erinaceus, Cordyceps sinensis, and Maitake, and found that the anticancer effect of Maitake is much higher than that of other fungi.
The reason why Maitake is considered to be able to prevent and resist cancer is mainly because it contains a component called Maitake polysaccharide, which can activate the function of immune cells, such as T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, macrophages and natural killer cells (NK) and other immune cells to relieve pain; if combined with chemotherapy, it can also effectively reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and improve the symptoms of cancer patients; not only that, it also helps to inhibit cancer recurrence and metastasis.
Since then, the research on the anti-cancer related to Maitake has attracted attention and has been carried out all over the world.
For example, Hu Xinyu and others conducted in vitro cell experiments to prove that the extract of Maitake can effectively reduce the survival rate of PLC/PRF/5 and HepG2 cells, increase the release of lactate dehydrogenase from cells, and further use BALB/c male nude mice in the axilla Liver cancer PLC/PRF/5 cells were inoculated, and experiments proved that Maitake could inhibit the growth of cancer in the PLC/PRF/5 ectopic tumor-bearing nude mouse model.
Or Zhao F et al. performed in vitro apoptosis and autophagy experiments on human liver cancer SMMC-7721 and HepG2 cells, and found that the combination of Maitake polysaccharide and VC can induce apoptosis and autophagy in human liver cancer SMMC-7721 and HepG2 cells , which laid a preliminary research foundation for the in vivo study of the Maitake polysaccharide combination drug.
Generally speaking, Maitake has a great effect in resisting cancer, so it has also been recognized internationally. Countries such as the United States, Japan, and Canada use it as the first-line drug for tumor biochemotherapy, and in order to accelerate the growth of ash tree frondosa. When flower-related drugs entered the clinical trials of tumors, the US FDA even broke the practice and skipped the first phase of clinical trials and directly entered the second phase, because they had great expectations for the anti-cancer effect of frondosa frondosa.
