The vital mushroom for a healthy intestine and healthy blood vessels.
An important area of application for the fungus is therefore to supply patients with deficiencies with important micronutrients. TCM doctors also recommend Pleurotus extracts in patients with cancer to supplement conventional medical therapies. They also recommend the oyster mushroom in the orthopedic field, namely for lumbago, back pain, tendon disorders or rigid limbs. Another effect is said to affect the immune system. Anyone who often suffers from flu-like infections is sometimes prescribed Pleurotus by a non-medical practitioner.
Analyzes show that the oyster mushroom has many different minerals in addition to vitamins. For example, it contains copper, zinc, manganese and magnesium. Its high iron content also makes it valuable for health. Observations in different regions of the world show that where pleurotus is regularly consumed, iron deficiency is unknown.
Other health-promoting substances
If we immediately look at the positive effects that taking Pleurotus powder can have on the human body, you will come across a few more substances. This includes the triterpenes, which, in addition to many other health-promoting properties, also have an anti-inflammatory effect. Pleurotus lectins support the immune system, while fat-lowering drugs inhibit cholesterol formation. Other physiologically relevant substances in oyster mushrooms are nucleosides, ergosterol, polyphenols and various antioxidants.
In addition, the medicinal mushroom is rich in enzymes. It owes this to its ability to thrive on a wide variety of substrates. They also allow it to break down polluting substances such as waste oil and other hydrocarbon compounds. Researchers suspect that these enzymes could do a similar job in the human intestine and render harmful hydrocarbon compounds there harmless.
What is the effect of the pleurotus?
The medicinal mushroom Pleurotus ostreatus has been used in alternative medicine for a long time. Experiences from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) show that it has an anti-inflammatory effect and has a particularly soothing effect on pain in the musculoskeletal system. In addition, the following effects of the ingredients have been examined:
– antimicrobial (antibiotic and anti-fungal)
– anti-cancer and anti-cancer
improvement of metabolism
Today's widespread diet with many simple carbohydrates, few nutrients and an excess of animal products leads to metabolic problems for many people. The consequences can include cardiovascular disease, diabetes and metabolic syndrome. For this reason, medicinal mushrooms such as Pleurotus are extremely valuable, as they have a positive effect on fat metabolism in particular. Studies have shown that regular intake of oyster mushrooms reduces the lipoprotein level in the blood. Both total cholesterol and triglyceride levels decrease. The “bad” cholesterol LDL decreases while the “good” cholesterol HDL increases. However, medicinal mushrooms cannot replace a healthy diet!
Prevent high blood pressure and arteriosclerosis
In addition, a positive development of blood lipid levels means the ideal prevention of plaque formation and thus of arteriosclerosis and high blood pressure. The ACE-inhibiting effect of oyster mushrooms works in the same direction. ACE is an enzyme in the body that affects vascular resistance. If it is inhibited, the vessels dilate automatically. The vascular resistance is reduced and the blood can flow better.
Take care of the intestines with the oyster mushrooms
The oyster mushroom supports a healthy metabolism. It is also positive for our health that its ingredients care for and strengthen the intestines.
A treat for the musculoskeletal system
In TCM, the oyster mushroom is the first choice when it comes to complaints in the area of the musculoskeletal system. This is partly due to its ability to relax muscles and lower uric acid levels.
