(Hericium erinaceus, stalactite mushroom, lion’s mane)
A rather rare mushroom in our country, it grows at the base and trunk of deciduous trees in late autumn. His hat is white, round, covered with hanging white “spikes”. A special mushroom, also cultivated for its medicinal effects, on sterile sawdust blocks or logs. In our country, this mushroom is only cultivated experimentally.
A popular edible mushroom species, vegetarians use it as a meat substitute.
The porcini mushroom has been used for centuries in the Far East primarily to alleviate stomach and intestinal symptoms.
In folk medicine, the fruit pulp or decoction dried in “home pharmacies” is highly valued – but it is also consumed fresh. Since its spread in Europe and America, this effect has been verified by consumers, but the scientific confirmation of the gastrointestinal effect and the description of the mechanism of the effect are still pending. However, it is certain that its polysaccharides (see below) play a decisive role in alleviating stomach and intestinal symptoms.
According to recent research, the compounds found in the mushroom (threitol, D-arabinitol, palmitic acid) are effective antioxidants, can inhibit hyperlipidemia and regulate blood fat levels, and can also reduce high blood sugar levels. According to studies, it can be effective in stomach and esophageal cancer. Research has been conducted on its effect on brain nerve function.
The porcini mushroom is important from a nutritional point of view; in terms of its content parameters, it is similar to the average of mushrooms. It is characterized by a higher carbohydrate and crude fiber content than chives, and a lower protein content.
It has a favorable effect on fat metabolism
It inhibits the adhesion (aggregation) of blood platelets
It stimulates the synthesis of nerve terminal factor
Improves cognitive functions
It slows down the aging process of the skin
The mushroom has been found to have an inhibitory effect on the formation of metastases in the case of esophageal and colon cancer. Stomach ulcers and inflammatory bowel diseases (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease) can be successfully treated with mushroom extracts. It is also used in folk medicine to reduce depression. Its anti-inflammatory effect is particularly pronounced in the case of stomach and digestive system diseases. It is also used in folk medicine to reduce depression.
Süngo mushroom extract is capable of increasing the synthesis of a nerve growth factor (NGF) in the brain. The introduction of NGF into the brain is considered a promising future treatment for Alzheimer’s, for which preliminary clinical data are already available. NGF can protect brain cells and neurons from dying, its natural accumulation in the brain can cause mood improvement without side effects. (e.g. direct, artificial injection of excessive amounts of NGF into the brain, e.g. via nasal spray, can cause vomiting and nausea.)
Its active ingredients are diverse, polysaccharides, proteins, lectins, terpenoids. Special molecular groups that, as far as we know, occur only in this species are hericenon, erinacol, and erinacin. The members of this latter group are diterpenoids. Their structure is made up of complex complex ring molecules, which are classified by the letters of the abc. They also have long-known nematode growth-inhibiting and antibacterial effects: the effectively inhibited bactericidal effect of erinacins against methicillin-resistant bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus) (MRSA) species has also been described. MRSA are resistant to the therapy of commonly used and cheaper antibiotics, they are contagious and can even cause blood poisoning (sepsis) with a fatal outcome! growth, which is resistant to treatment with methicillin, commonly used in human medicine. Erinacin also shows an equally effective inhibition.
Gastritis, In the case of gastritis caused by Helicobacter pylori, it has a double effect, because it not only strengthens the immune system, but also has an antibacterial effect.
Its cytotoxic activity on malignant cancer cell lines was recently discovered. An important element of the cellular immune response is the activation of macrophages, which for example results in the production of NO (nitrogen monoxide). This molecule is involved in many regulatory processes, it is short-lived and its quantity increases during processes leading to the destruction of foreign cells. Its synthesis is carried out by several enzymes, of which inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) produces the most significant amount. The aqueous extract of the porcupine significantly increases the production of NO by macrophages: after 1 day, it doubles the amount compared to the control. The treatment not only stimulated the activity of iNOS responsible for the production of No, but also the synthesis of the enzyme. The increase in NO production in mammalian organisms is well explained by s
the inhibitory effect of mushroom extracts on tumor cells and bacteria. Among the mushrooms and mushroom extracts used for the treatment of tumor processes, several common mushroom-plant raw materials have recently appeared. In addition to porcini mushrooms, e.g. the cell suspension of herbs (Artemisia iwayomogi) is cultured, and an extract is prepared from the resulting biomass. The methanolic extract of such a culture effectively inhibited the damage of human liver cells caused by chloroform and the development of the tumor process. Since Artemisia iwayomogi itself is a well-known herb with immunomodulatory effects, it is difficult to clarify the role of porcini mushrooms in the phenomenon.
The beneficial effect of porcini mushroom aqueous extracts on digestive system diseases is due to its soluble polysaccharides.
There are various combined preparations of these on the market, and clarifying their structure was a significant step in the process of their becoming a medicine. The 2 most important of them are made up of glucose and galactose, the chain is mostly made up of 1-6 bonds. During the investigation of the structure of other urchin polysaccharides, quite a few with a special composition were identified and characterized, such as HEP-1, which mainly contains galactose and rhamnose, with a smaller portion of glucose.
