The bioactive substances present include B vitamins (especially B9), B6, B7 and B8.
(especially B9), minerals (iron, zinc, manganese, magnesium, potassium,
germanium and calcium), all essential amino acids, sterols, ergosterols, triterpenes and cortisol-like substances,
triterpenes and cortisone-like substances (adenosine and guanosine).
In addition, its polysaccharides include 1,3 beta-glucans, which
stimulate immune system receptors. They thus
thus enhance their function and enable a rapid and effective defence response to any particulate
defence when faced with any invading particle.
Their proven properties are centred on five: anti-allergic action,
anti-inflammatory, neuro-muscular, cardiotonic and hepatoprotective action.
The anti-allergic action of reishi is due to its content in triterpenes, oleic acid
oleic acid (apparent histamine inhibitor) and polypeptides similar in structure to immunoglobulins.
similar to immunoglobulins.
It acts as an anti-inflammatory due to beta-glucans, which have a similar effect to steroids, but without the
steroids, but without the marked side effects.
Neuro-muscular action is due to its adenosine and uridine content,
components of nucleic acids. Nucleic acids are essential for
cellular development and function, the main problem in degenerative diseases such as muscle
degenerative diseases such as muscle weakness, atrophies, myotin, muscular dystrophy.
Studies in China and Japan have shown a beneficial effect in elderly people with these diseases.
elderly people with these diseases, but always in the medium to long term.
Cardiotonic action is due to the sterols and triterpenes it contains, which help to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood.
