Tremella Fuciformis Polysaccharides Description

Tremella fuciformis polysaccharide is a polysaccharide made from tremella fuciformis of basidiomycete subclass by deep culture. It is a polysaccharide composed of acidic isopolysaccharide. It consists of xylose, mannose, fucose, glucose, glucuronic acid, etc., with a sugar content of more than 75%. In addition to polysaccharides, the preparation also contains white powder of spores. Soluble in hot water, insoluble in alcohol, ether and other organic solvents.

Tremella fuciformis polysaccharide is an immune enhancer, which can improve the immune function of the body and increase white blood cells. It is clinically used for leukopenia caused by tumor chemotherapy or radiotherapy and leukopenia caused by other reasons, with relatively obvious effect. It is also used to treat chronic bronchitis, with an effective rate of more than 80%. In addition, it also has anti-aging and anti-oxidation effects, so it can be used as a moisturizing and whitening agent in high-end cosmetics. The polysaccharide can be used as a cosmetic additive with moisturizing and antioxidant effects, added to milk drinks to play a stabilizing role, and added to bread to increase its nutritional value.

Tremella Fuciformis Polysaccharides Form

Tremella polysaccharides (TP) are the main active components in Tremella fuciformis, which are derived from heteropolysaccharides isolated and purified from the fruiting bodies and submerged fermentation spores of Tremella fuciformis cells. Its main chain is α- The side chain composed of glucose, xylose, fucose and common uronic acid residues is connected on the 2,4,6 positions of the main chain of the mannose polysaccharide composed of (1-3) - glycosidic bonds, and its active center is α- (1-3) - Ganlu Jutang is a common structural part.

Tremella fuciformis polysaccharides include acidic heteropolysaccharides, neutral heteropolysaccharides, cell wall polysaccharides, extracellular polysaccharides and acidic oligosaccharides, without nucleic acids and proteins.

Tremella Fuciformis Polysaccharides Function Application

1. Processing characteristics in food production

Tremella polysaccharide contains more homogeneous polysaccharides (about 70% - 75% of total polysaccharides), which can increase the viscosity of solution and emulsify and stabilize. Therefore, when applied to the processing of beverages, dairy products and cold drinks, it can not only endow food with good processing characteristics, but also reduce the use of synthetic additives and improve the nutritional value of food.

2. Processing characteristics in cosmetics production

Tremella fuciformis polysaccharide has the ability to scavenge hydroxyl radicals, and can be used as an anti-aging ingredient in cosmetics. Lipofurnin is a pigment containing lipids and proteins, which is yellowish brown and present in aged cells in a granular form. The lipofuscin is deposited in the cells of various tissues and organs of the human body, resulting in the slow metabolism of cells, the decline of activity, and the decline of human organ function and aging.

3. Health medicine efficacy

The composition of Tremella fuciformis polysaccharides is diverse, not only the monomers are diverse, but also the configurations and conformations after forming the polymers are also diverse; A variety of polysaccharides are mixed together to make their biological activities diverse.
