erpenes are bioactive compounds present on Reishi extract with proven therapeutic actions. Among these actions, we highlight the following: anti-tumour, immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory and antioxidants.
The superior fungi are composed of a myriad of molecules with proven therapeutic qualities such as polysaccharides, dietary fibre, and terpenes. Within the group of polysaccharides are the β-glucans (beta-glucans); bioactive compounds which have been shown to act on the immune system, regulating our immune response. They also affect the functioning of the cardiovascular system […]
According to a recent article published in the International Journal of Medical Sciences, extracts rich in polysaccharides of certain fungi inhibit the proliferation of tumour cells and their oncogenic potential, as well as the ability to migrate and invade other tissues.
