Tremella is a kind of Basidiomycota, which belongs to the fruiting body of fungi. It is also known as white fungus, snow fungus, white fungus, etc. Tremella is generally chrysanthemum-shaped or cockscomb, 5-10 cm in diameter, soft and white, translucent and elastic.
Most species of Tremella are born on logs of various trees. However, Tremella hyphae have almost no ability to decompose cellulose, so in the process of completing its life cycle, it must rely on the assistance of another fungus, that is, Auricularia auris, also known as Feather-like hyphae, which can degrade Tremella fungus. Cellulose, lignin, starch, etc. that cannot be used by silk are decomposed into nutrients that can be absorbed by Tremella hyphae.
Tremella is an extremely valuable tonic, and the royal aristocrats of all dynasties regarded Tremella as a product that prolongs life. Modern medicine has proved that the main pharmacologically active ingredient of Tremella is polysaccharide, and Tremella polysaccharide is the most important component of Tremella, accounting for 60% to 70% of its dry weight. At the same time, Tremella polysaccharide is also an important biologically active substance, which can enhance human immune function and play a role in strengthening the foundation. And Tremella polysaccharide has no toxicity to the respiratory system, central nervous system, blood circulatory system, heart, liver, kidney, etc., and has no effect on the reproductive ability of mice and the survival rate of pups. Chronic poisoning, non-mutagenic, teratogenic and carcinogenic, belongs to non-toxic substances.
Modern medicine has proved that the main active ingredient of Tremella is Tremella polysaccharide, which accounts for 60%-70% of the dry weight of Tremella. In addition, Tremella also contains protein, fat and various amino acids, minerals and other substances, which make it have the effect of strengthening the body.
Tremella polysaccharides have a wide range of biological activities and functions, including anti-aging, antioxidant, anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, lowering blood sugar and improving immunity. Tremella polysaccharide can promote the synthesis of nucleic acid and protein, increase the content of cytochrome P-450 in liver microsomes, and enhance the immune function of the body to delay aging. It can also significantly enhance the activity of superoxide dismutase in the brain and liver tissue of mice, and inhibit the activity of enzymes positively related to body aging in the brain. It has antioxidant function.
Tremella polysaccharide, as a biological immune response regulator, indirectly inhibits or kills tumor cells by enhancing the body's immune function, and plays an anti-tumor effect. The study found that Tremella polysaccharide significantly inhibited the formation of stress-type ulcers in rats, promoted the healing of ulcers, and had the effect of reducing inflammation and swelling. Tremella polysaccharide can also regulate sugar metabolism enzymes, accelerate blood sugar conversion, slow down glucose absorption to lower blood sugar. In addition, Tremella polysaccharide enhances the phagocytic ability of white blood cells by mobilizing lymphocytes, enhances the body's immunity and promotes bone marrow hematopoietic function.
Amino acids and trace minerals: Tremella can provide the human body with a large amount of essential trace elements, which can help improve various functions of the human body. According to nutritional analysis, Tremella contains a total of 17 amino acids, of which 7 are essential amino acids. Tremella is rich in trace mineral elements, the content of calcium per 100g of Tremella is 357 mg, and the content of iron is 30.4 mg.
In addition to polysaccharide, protein and other nutrients, Tremella also contains dietary fiber that can promote gastrointestinal motility and help digestion. The plant gums contained in Tremella can inhibit the abnormal peristalsis of the stomach and intestines, so Tremella has an antidiarrheal effect while laxative.
Tremella is not only a valuable nutritional tonic, but also a tonic for strengthening the body and strengthening the body. Its nature is flat and non-toxic. Beauty, skin rejuvenation, longevity effect. Tremella can improve liver detoxification ability and protect liver function. It can not only enhance the body's anti-tumor immunity, but also enhance the tolerance of tumor patients to radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
Beauty and skin care efficacy
1. Tremella polysaccharide has excellent moisturizing and water-locking ability
Equivalent to the moisturizing power of hyaluronic acid. It absorbs a lot of moisture and has the same high moisturizing properties no matter how low or high humidity conditions are.
Used in skin care cosmetics, it has the functions of repairing the epidermis, increasing the moisture content of the epidermis, increasing the moisture content of the stratum corneum, and giving the skin a soft texture. It reduces the water release constant, improves the skin's barrier function, prevents the evaporation of water from the skin, and improves the skin's water retention capacity.
2. Tremella polysaccharide has good lubricity and film-forming properties
Skin care products added with Tremella polysaccharide have obvious lubricating feeling when applied and have good hand feeling. They can form a uniform film on the skin surface, so that the skin has a good smooth and moist feeling, and does not shrink, dry or tighten. The skin plays a protective role.
3. Tremella polysaccharide has a certain ability to scavenge hydroxyl radicals
Tremella polysaccharide can be used in cosmetics as an anti-aging ingredient. By inhibiting the peroxidation of cell lipids, it can prevent skin aging; promote the growth of elastic cells, reduce UV damage to the skin; activate epidermal cells, repair light-damaged skin; accelerate skin regeneration and smooth wrinkles.
Tremella polysaccharide is a revolutionary plant-derived high-efficiency moisturizing agent. It is currently the only natural moisturizing raw material with a molecular weight of one million. It can not only moisturize efficiently, but also has anti-aging and anti-oxidation effects, so it is often used in high-end cosmetics.
