The hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects of plant polysaccharides
Under normal circumstances, the synthesis and decomposition of lipids in the human body maintain a dynamic balance. Once the balance is disrupted, the increase in blood lipid content will damage the arterial intima and cause atherosclerosis, thereby inducing cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Reducing blood lipid levels is of great significance for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. According to reports, pumpkin polysaccharide has the effect of lowering blood sugar and lowering blood lipids, and its effect on the prevention and treatment of diabetes has been confirmed. Animal experiments show that pumpkin polysaccharide is an ideal dietetic agent that can improve lipid metabolism. Black fungus polysaccharide can significantly reduce the cholesterol in the blood of mice; kelp polysaccharide can significantly reduce blood sugar and urea nitrogen in diabetic mice, and has a repair effect on pancreatic islet damage. Tremella polysaccharides, tea polysaccharides, and konjac polysaccharides can lower blood sugar and blood lipids. In addition, there are guava polysaccharides, ginseng polysaccharides, aconitum polysaccharides, anemarrhena polysaccharides, atractylodes polysaccharides, coix seed polysaccharides, yam polysaccharides, ephedra polysaccharides, acanthopanax senticosus polysaccharides, comfrey polysaccharides, mulberry bark polysaccharides , Rice Root Polysaccharide, Rice Bran Polysaccharide, Sugar Cane Polysaccharide, Astragalus Polysaccharide, Ganoderma Polysaccharide, Laver Polysaccharide, Laminaria Polysaccharide, Ophiopogon Polysaccharide, Grifola Polysaccharide, Black Fungus Polysaccharide.
