Adjusting the immune system – Active Polysaccharide
What is a polysaccharide?
The polysaccharide is a substance composed of more than ten monosaccharides, it includes starch, dietary fiber, mushroom polysaccharide, plant polysaccharide and etc.
The polysaccharide contained in the mushroom is more than 100,000 or even millions because of its large molecular weight. Therefore, the polysaccharides contained in the mushrooms are generally referred to as “polysaccharides”.
Polysaccharide ≠ active polysaccharide
Polysaccharides can be divided into inactive polysaccharides (such as starch) and active polysaccharides (such as plant polysaccharides). Only active polysaccharides can participate in the body and promote various physiological functions and metabolic reactions to achieve the effect of nourishing the body and nourishing the body, which is not available in the inactive polysaccharides. Inactive polysaccharides (such as starch) can only provide the body as a source of heat, but it does not help to regulate the physiological functions.
Active polysaccharides are the key
Many studies at home and abroad have confirmed that Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides have many active polysaccharides, including immune function, anti-aging, anti-tumor and blood sugar lowering, etc. But we often overlook another fact – many studies have confirmed that some Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides are not physiologically active. In a word, Ganoderma lucidum contains active polysaccharides, but not all Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides are active. If the active polysaccharide is compared to a fighter jet, then the general polysaccharide is like a non-combat civil aircraft. They are all airplanes, but only fighters jet can defend the enemy and defend national security.
