5 useful ingredients in Chaga

SOD

A major feature of Chaga is that it contains a large amount of SOD enzyme. You can maintain your health and beauty with SOD enzymes.

SOD is an abbreviation for Super Oxide Dismutase, which means active oxygen degrading enzyme.

SOD peroxidizes superoxide anion (O2-), which is a superoxide generated in the body, with oxygen. It has the function of converting to hydrogen (H2O2). The specific chemical formula is as follows.

2O2- + 2H+ → O2 + H2O2

Superoxide generated in the body is also called active oxygen, and it is toxic to the body and is recognized as bad. However, it is not completely unnecessary, and it is used to kill microorganisms that have invaded the immune system, and it is also used in the right place.

If you have SOD enzyme, it will adjust the amount of toxic active oxygen, so I would like to take a lot of it, but when measured with a normal chaga, about 1000 units is the average value of SOD enzyme content. The characteristic of RETHÉ is that it destroys the cell wall of Chaga mushrooms by using processing technology and makes it easier to extract the nutritional components contained in it.

SOD酵素

β-D-glucan

It is said that β-D glucan has a role to keep the body healthy, and recent research shows that it is possible to maintain health by habitually taking β-D glucan in daily life. I'm starting to understand.

Β-D glucan extracted from the cell wall of baker's yeast is commonly used in supplements. Both β-D glucan of bread yeast and β-D glucan of mushrooms such as chaga contain β-D glucan of the type of binding β-1,3-glucan and β-1,6-glucan, and when ingested. It is known to help human immunity.The component called β-D glucan is a polysaccharide. It is made up of a combination of sugars called D-glucose. Originally, it is a component contained in plants, fungi, bacteria, etc., and exists as a component that constitutes the cell wall of these plants, fungi, etc.

Even if you eat mushrooms normally, the human digestive system cannot digest the cell wall of mushrooms well. Unfortunately, however, this β-D glucan is a component that is abundant in the cell wall, so the amount that can be digested and absorbed is small.

RETHÉ uses cell wall destruction technology to destroy the cell wall of Chaga to make it easier to digest and absorb nutrients. It is an excellent product that can also ingest β-D glucan in the cell wall, which is normally difficult to ingest.

Lignin

Lignin has been shown to have a protective effect on the body.

Lignin acts like a preservative that makes the tree itself less likely to break down.Lignin is a dietary fiber. Lignin is originally a constituent of wood. Trees are mainly composed of cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin, etc.

Mushrooms that parasitize trees have enzymes that break down lignin so that they can parasitize and stick to trees. Lignin, which is originally a macromolecule, is decomposed into small molecules by using lignin-degrading enzyme, and it parasitizes. The lignin taken into the mushrooms works as an insoluble dietary fiber when ingested by humans.

Lignin is an insoluble dietary fiber that is insoluble in water. It is also resistant to acids and alkalis and cannot be digested by the human digestive system. Moreover, it is resistant to bacteria and is excreted without being affected by bacteria in the intestines. It may seem useless at first glance, but it increases the amount of stool and makes it easier to excrete outside the body, adsorbs bile acids to reduce cholesterol, and slows down the absorption rate of sugar. It will be useful in various ways until it is excreted.

Saponin

Saponins are known to condition the body.

It is a component that is abundant in mushrooms that parasitize trees. It is also abundant in Chinese herbs and is known to work well against cholesterol and triglycerides.It is an ingredient contained in plants and has a bitter taste and an astringent taste. The bitterness of coffee and matcha is also the bitterness of saponin. When dissolved in water, it works like soap, so it seems that the name comes from the Latin word for soap.

Betulinic acid

(Betulaceae) A triterpene that is abundant in birch sap and has a useful function. The usefulness of bethulinic acid is highly evaluated, and various studies have been conducted so far.

It is a component contained in the bark of plants and is abundant in the birch parasitized by Chaga. The effect of inducing apoptosis in certain types of cells is being studied.
