Diabetes and Hericium erinaceus

Hericium erinaceus, also known as Hericium erinaceus, hedgehog, hedgehog, monkey Mushrooms, etc., belong to Basidiomycota, Agaricaceae, Polyporacea, Odontomycetes, and Hericium. Because of its delicious taste, rich nutritional value and high medicinal value, it is known as “mountain treasure Hericium, seafood bird’s nest”. “Chinese Materia Medica” records that Hericium erinaceus is flat in nature, sweet in taste, and has the function of “benefiting the five internal organs and helping digestion”. Polysaccharides are important active substances in Hericium erinaceus. Modern pharmacological studies have shown that polysaccharides from Hericium erinaceus have the functions of nourishing the stomach, treating gastritis, treating gastric ulcer, anti-tumor, enhancing immunity, anti-oxidation, lowering blood sugar, anti-fatigue, and anti-aging And other multiple functions, can be used in medicine, food, cosmetics and other fields.

The role of Hericium erinaceus And efficacy

lowering blood sugar, anti-fatigue

< span>Hericium erinaceus polysaccharides have the effects of improving blood lipid metabolism disorders, relieving liver, kidney and pancreas lesions, and assisting hypoglycemic effects. Hericium erinaceus polysaccharide can reduce the levels of serum urea nitrogen, blood lactic acid and malondialdehyde, increase the glycogen content and antioxidant enzyme activity in the tissue, and then play a significant anti-fatigue effect.

Enhance immune function, anti-tumor< /p>

Hericium erinaceus polysaccharides can enhance the phagocytosis of macrophages in the body, promote the increase of white blood cells and the production of immunoglobulins, and can inhibit the growth of tumor cells and invasion, improve the effect of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Hericium erinaceus polysaccharides promote the proliferation of T lymphocytes and can enhance the body’s immunity.

Stomach nourishing function

Hericium erinaceus polysaccharide can promote the increase of gastric mucosal blood flow, catalyze the protective effect of various gastric mucosal factors, and play an anti-ulcer , Protect gastric mucosa and treat stress gastric mucosal injury. Ulcerative colitis can be alleviated by improving mitochondrial function and antioxidant activity. Many clinical studies have also proved that Hericium erinaceus polysaccharide can promote the repair and regeneration of gastric mucosal epithelial cells, reduce microvascular damage and reduce the permeability of microvascular, so it can repair the gastric mucosal barrier and has the effect of nourishing the stomach.


< p data-track="28">Herinium erinaceus polysaccharide has strong antioxidant activity and has the ability to scavenge oxygen free radicals. Hericium erinaceus polysaccharide can significantly increase the content of superoxide dismutase and catalase in serum, and effectively reduce the content of malondialdehyde, which can significantly enhance the ability of anti-lipid peroxidation.

lowering blood sugar and Lowering blood lipids

Give Hericium erinaceus polysaccharide intervention treatment to diabetic rats successfully modeled, At the same time, metformin hydrochloride was used as a positive control to observe the hypoglycemic and lipid-lowering effects of Hericium erinaceus polysaccharides on diabetic rats. The experimental results of blood sugar showed that Hericium erinaceus polysaccharide can significantly reduce the fasting blood sugar of diabetic rats and improve the tolerance of glucose. The results of insulin determination showed that Hericium erinaceus polysaccharide couldIt can repair pancreatic beta cells and improve the ability of pancreatic beta cells to secrete insulin, thereby increasing the serum insulin level of diabetic rats, reducing blood sugar of diabetic rats, and improving glucose tolerance.

The experimental results show that oral administration of Hericium erinaceus polysaccharides can reduce TG, TC and LDL-C in diabetic rats content, increase the level of HDL-C in serum, and have a strong effect on regulating blood lipid metabolism, which further shows that Hericium erinaceus polysaccharides also have a certain therapeutic effect on hyperlipidemia caused by diabetes.

Other aspects

Hericium erinaceus polysaccharides also have significant health effects in other aspects. Hericium erinaceus polysaccharide has the effect of protecting the liver, has the direct inactivation effect on influenza A virus in some animal cells, and also has the effect of anti-infection and anti-inflammation. In addition, Hericium erinaceus polysaccharides also have various effects such as assisting in lipid-lowering and anti-coagulation.
