Prevenzione e protezione contro i tumori

L’origine di molti tumori è dovuta ad alterazioni del DNA che possono essere causate da sostanze tossiche, radiazioni, radicali liberi, virus e altri agenti contaminanti. Il reishi è in grado di difendere il DNA dagli attacchi di questi agenti attraverso diversi meccanismi d’azione.

Le sostanze antiossidanti contenute nel reishi proteggono il DNA dai radicali liberi. La riduzione dei danni al DNA diminuisce la probabilità di mutazioni del materiale genetico che possono essere la causa di tumori.

Il reishi agisce eliminando alcune sostanze carcinogeniche dell’apparata digerente.

I polisaccaridi non assimilabili del reishi (la fibra dietetica naturale) che sono contenuti solo nel reishi puro, hanno la proprietà di raccogliere i composti carginogenici contenuti nell’intestino, permettendone la loro espulsione dall’organismo.

Il reishi ha inoltre effetti chemioprotettivi, ovvero, è in grado di protteggere l’organismo contro i danni causati dalle sostanze tossiche. Tali benefici sono stati riscontrati verso diverse sostanze tossiche/carcinogeniche di fegato, reni, retina e colon (per maggiori approfondimenti si vedano anche le schede relative agli effetti protettivi del reishi).

protectionLe conclusioni di questi studi affermano che il consumo di reishi ha un’elevato effetto protettivo verso tali organi.

Al riguardo esistono già anche diversi brevetti.
