Lentinus edodes polysaccharide is a kind of substance that regulates human physiological functions and enhances human immunity, and can prevent and treat various chronic diseases.
Modern pharmacological studies have found that lentinan has remarkable and unique anti-tumor activity and alleviates the side effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Its anti-tumor pharmacological action does not directly kill the pathogen, but stimulates immune cell maturation and differentiation. Enhance and improve the balance of human body function, restore and improve the response of human cells to lymphoid molecules, hormones and other physiological active factors.
The direct inhibition of lentinan on tumor cells. Lentinus edodes polysaccharide can change the biochemical characteristics of tumor cell membrane, affect the metabolism of tumor cells, inhibit cell proliferation, and directly destroy the structure of tumor cells, causing the cytoplasm, nucleus, and even cell structure to break, thereby hindering the synthesis of ribonucleic acid. In the event of a disorder, the cell undergoes a degenerative change that eventually leads to cell death. In addition, structural disruption can also cause damage to DNA molecules, disruption of their replication and transcriptional functions, and cell death.
The immunomodulatory effect of lentinan enhances body immunity and prevents tumors. Lentinus edodes polysaccharide is a host defense enhancer that restores or strengthens the host's response to lymphocytes, hormones and other biologically active factors. By stimulating the maturation, differentiation and reproduction of immune cells, the lymphocytes of the body are greatly increased. Improve the immune function of the body, and it has been confirmed in animal and clinical experiments that the combination of lentinan and chemotherapeutic drugs can enhance the anti-tumor effect.
