Black Mushrooms A Sure Blood Thinner-clazziquai

UnCategorized There are more than 300 kinds of mushroom in China alone. Some have been cultivated since the Tang dynasty (618-970 CE). Even Ancient Egypt was recorded to have used mushroom for medicinal purposes. Every known civilization has had their love affair with this edible fungus. But for the Chinese, what is edible is medicine and what is medicine is edible. Shitake Shitake is a mushroom that was first cultivated in China then found its way to Japan and then to the rest of the world. This variety is called as Chinese black mushroom which is actually a misnomer for Shitake is not black at all. Shitake used to be a hard .modity to .e by but today you can find a dried Shitake in grocery shelves ready to be rehydrated for use. Research showed that a .pound called Lentinan has been isolated from Shitake and is now being used as intravenous treatment for cancer. Maitake This mushroom is called the "king of medicinal mushrooms" and a rich source of beta-glucan, a natural .pound in raising the body’s immunity. Laboratory tests have proved that maitake extract can inhibit the growth of tumors and can also stimulate the immune system of mice with cancers. Presently there are clinical studies of cancer patients in the United States. Tree Ears Tree ears have some twenty varieties and are known as: – dry black fungus – silver ear – mook yee – cloud ear These mushrooms grow on wood and are ear-shaped. They are gummy or are jelly-like when fresh and turn brittle and dark (mostly black) when dried. These fungi are not only found in China but are also grown in the rest of Asia, USA and some European countries. These mushrooms are thought to be a good source of amino acids as a hundred grams of dried tree ears contains 11 grams of fatless-protein and other essentials such as carbohydrate and calcium, iron and other essential minerals and vitamins. A study showed that these black mushrooms reproduced DNA and RNA of human lymphocytes in vitro. Some studies show that tree ear mushroom has a direct effect on the blood as a .ponent called adenosine has been isolated from it. Adenosine acts much like an aspirin, a blood thinner. This black mushroom may well be a "wonder" fungus as the Chinese believed that it can clear lung infections; cleanse the stomach and the intestines; and aside from thinning blood, also helps to stop bleeding. There are recent studies to support that tree-ear fungus does act as blood coagulant. As this black fungus acts in two opposite directions – thinning blood (faster blood circulation) and coagulating blood (slower blood circulation) – this mushroom is perfect for the ying/yang Chinese ideal. It is also believed that this particular black mushroom can impede the growth of tumor and helps strengthen the heart thereby decreasing the probability of a heart attack and stroke. All these could be tied up on the premise that black mushroom can help in the production of lymphocytes or white blood cells that fight the body in fighting diseases. Eating black mushroom will certainly be a gastronomical delight plus with the added medicinal benefits. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
