The benefits of polysaccharides to the human body

Anti-tumor effect

Polysaccharides have anti-tumor activity and do not directly kill tumor cells. Instead, they activate the immune system in the body and improve immunity. Polysaccharides can enhance macrophages or increase their phagocytic ability, enhance late-onset hypersensitivity reactions to improve the body's immune system to exert its anti-cancer effects, such as lentinan, lycium polysaccharides. The anti-tumor activity of polysaccharides combined with a wealth of sources makes their use in cancer therapy a research field worthy of our further exploration.

Hypoglycemic effect

Polysaccharides can effectively repair and protect islet cells, increase insulin secretion, inhibit gluconeogenesis and reduce blood glucose levels, and promote the use of glucose to change glucose metabolism disorders to effectively prevent and treat diabetes. Polysaccharides can also lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood to reduce blood lipids and reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease, which is an excellent regulator of the "three high" population.

Anti-aging effect

Some polysaccharides have anti-aging effects. On the one hand, these polysaccharides can act as immunomodulators to enhance immune function. On the other hand, they can inhibit the production of free radicals in the body or directly scavenge free radicals, promote the release of superoxide dismutase S0D, and increase antioxidant activity. Enzyme activity, thus increasing physical strength, delay aging.


Radiation resistance

Studies have shown that traditional Chinese medicine polysaccharides also have a certain anti-radiation effect, it is mainly through the repair of damaged hematopoietic tissue, enhance the body's immune function and scavenging free radicals and other effects to effectively reduce radiation damage to the body. Poria cocos, Tremella fuciformis, and PSK polysaccharides all have good anti-radiation effects.

Other activities

The biological activities of polysaccharides are many, in addition to the above-mentioned various biological activity functions, there are anti-radiation, aid digestion, anti-ulcer, anti-allergy, endocrine regulation, inhibition of glandular hyperplasia, diuretic, asthma and other active functions. Some polysaccharides also have antibacterial properties and promote the biosynthesis of nucleic acids and proteins.
