Poria mushroom extract pharmacological action

1. Diuretic and detumescence effect

Lingsu is a new aldosterone receptor antagonist, which is beneficial to urine excretion, recovery of renal function and elimination of protein.

2. Effect on digestive system

The triterpenoids of Poria cocos enhanced the differentiation inducing activity of insulin, and the triterpenoids themselves also had differentiation inducing activity. Poria triterpenoids and their derivatives can inhibit vomit induced by oral copper sulfate in frogs.

3. Stone prevention

Poria cocos polysaccharide can effectively inhibit the formation and deposition of calcium oxalate crystals in the kidney of rats, and has a good anti stone effect.

4. Anti rejection effect

Poria cocos extract can obviously inhibit the acute rejection of heterotopic heart transplantation in rats.

5. Antibacterial and antiviral effects

100% filter paper of Poria cocos extract can inhibit Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus albus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacillus anthracis, Escherichia coli, Streptococcus A and Streptococcus B.

6. Anticonvulsant effect

The total triterpenoids of Poria cocos can resist the maximum electric shock and pentylenetetrazole convulsions to varying degrees, which proves that the total triterpenoids of Poria cocos have obvious anticonvulsant effects.

7. Anti inflammatory effect

The total triterpenoids of Poria cocos can inhibit the acute inflammation such as auricle swelling in mice caused by xylene and the permeability of abdominal capillaries in mice, and also have a strong inhibitory effect on the subacute inflammation of cotton ball granuloma in rats. It shows that the total triterpenoids of Poria cocos is one of the main effective components of the anti-inflammatory effect of Poria cocos, and its mechanism may be related to the inhibition of phospholipase A2 activity by the triterpenoids contained in Poria cocos.

8. Whitening effect

White Poria cocos has significant inhibition on tyrosinase and is a competitive inhibition. Reducing melanin production by inhibiting tyrosinase activity may be one of the mechanisms of whitening traditional Chinese medicine.
