Here at Osumex we offer a product named 5-mushroom blend which is produced in Japan from raw unprocessed mushrooms. Mushrooms contain some of the most potent natural medicines. They are excellent sources of antioxidants as they contain polyphenols and selenium, which are common in the plant world. They also contain antioxidants that are unique to mushrooms, one of such antioxidant is ergothioenine, which scientists are now beginning to recognized as a master antioxidant.
Ergothioneine is almost exclusive to mushrooms and is an "unusual sulfur-containing derivative of the amino acid, histidine," which appears to have a very specific role in protecting our DNA from oxidative damage. Mushrooms therefore provide us with the kind of antioxidants to stop excessive free radical activity!
No preservatives, no additives, no colouring, no artificial flavouring have been used in the entire process.
Osumex 5-Mushroom Blend is a balanced mixture of mushrooms packed in 3gm sachets:
Osumex 5-Mushroom Blend has a high concentration of glyconutrients or gluconutrients (essential sugars) and a polysaccharide compound called glucan, creating a unique biomass. Gluconutrients are the active ingredient for stimulating or regulating the cellular immune system, which in turn stimulates various immune cells, primarily the T-cells and Macrophages, to counteract tumor cells without damaging normal healthy cells. In Japan, the polysaccharide compound has been used in treating malignant tumors.
Osumex 5-Mushroom Blend is rich in Gluconutrients, Vitamins (B complex, C, D), minerals (niacin, magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, copper, beta-carotene, amino acids) and enzymes.
How can 5-Mushroom Blend help a diabetic condition? 5-Mushroom blend are an ideal low-energy diet for diabetics. They have no fats, no cholesterol, very low levels of carbohydrates, high protein content, and a wealth of vitamins and minerals. They also contain a lot of water and fiber. Moreover, they contain natural insulin and enzymes which help the breaking down of sugar or starch in food. They are also known to contain certain compounds which help proper functioning of the liver, pancreas and other endocrine glands, thereby promoting the formation of insulin and its proper regulation throughout the body. Diabetics often suffer from infections, particularly in their limbs, which tend to continue for long periods of time. The natural antibiotics in mushrooms can help protect diabetics from these painful and potentially life-threatening conditions.
Immune System Strength: Ergothioneine, a powerful antioxidant present in mushrooms, is very effective in providing protection from free radicals as well as boosting the immune system. It is actually an amino acid that contains sulfur, which is something that many people are deficient in, despite not knowing it or seeing its effects. That being said, the presence of this “master antioxidant” which is unique to mushrooms, can give you a major boost to immune system health. It helps to eliminate free radicals, which are the dangerous compounds that are released during the metabolic processes of cells, and can float throughout the body and cause significant damage and disease, so antioxidants, like ergothioneine, are vital elements for overall health.
Mushrooms contain natural antibiotics (similar to penicillin, which itself is extracted from mushrooms), which inhibit microbial growth and other fungal infections. Those same polysaccharides, beta-glucans, can stimulate and regulate the body’s immune system. They can also help heal ulcers and ulcerous wounds and protect them from developing infections. The good combination of vitamins A, vitamin B-Complex and vitamin C that is found in them also strengthens the immune system.
Blood Pressure: Studies of various types of mushrooms, including shitake and maitake mushrooms, have shown them to be high in potassium content. Potassium acts as a vasodilator, relaxing tension in blood vessels and therefore reducing blood pressure. High blood pressure is connected to a number of deadly conditions, particularly heart attacks and strokes. Potassium also increases cognitive function, because increased blood and oxygen flow to the brain stimulates neural activity. Studies have shown that increased levels of potassium improve memory and knowledge retention.
Weight Loss: Would you believe me if I said that a completely lean protein diet is ideal for losing fat and building muscle mass? Well, believe it or not, it’s true. Most fats are burnt to digest proteins found in our food, more so when the protein is accompanied by a very low carbohydrate count, no fat or cholesterol, and a good amount of fiber. This is exactly the combination that mushrooms offer to help in losing weight! Due to their nutrient density, they actually rank higher than most fruits and vegetables, and some researchers say that mushrooms are one of the rare foods that people can eat as often as possible, with no side effects.
One study replaced red meat with white button cap mushrooms, approximately one cup per day, and found that those test subjects who ate mushrooms not only lost a significant amount of weight over a standard period of time, but they also decreased their waistline, and were better able to maintain their new weight, rather than ballooning back to the original weight as in most crash diets.
The benefits of using Maitake mushrooms because they contain high levels of the essential sugars, include, but are not limited to, the following:
In clinical trials, shiitake is believed to exhibit the following characteristics:
The polysaccharides contained in Agaricus blazei mushroom vitalize production of interferon and interleukin. This is referred to as a cytokine inducing effect and can also prevent viruses and other external factors from entering the cell tissue.
Previous clinical trials showed that many fungi polysaccharides are effective only against solid cancer. This was reported during the general convention of the Japan Cancer Association in 1980. Subsequent studies, in collaboration with universities and hospital researchers, proved that the polysaccharides of Agaricus blazei is effective agains Ehrilch's ascites carcinoma sigmoid colnic cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer as well as solid cancer. These experiments suggested that it activated metabolism by revitalizing normal biological tissues. It was only recently that melanin protein, which is effective in the production of semen, hair and egg white, was discovered in Agaricus blazei.
The mushroom activates macrophage, immunocytes such as complements retculoendothelial system, acts to induce cytokine such as interferon as well as BRM. It bolsters the body's immune system.
Reishi mushroom has been known as a cardiotonic herb and has a balancing effect on the body. Among its many reported functions are:
It has been used by the Chinese for 4,000 years in treating liver disorders, hypertension, arthritis and other ailments. Several biologically active triterpenes (ganoderic acids) and sterols have been isolated from this mushroom and proven effective as cytotoxic, anti-viral, anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacteria and anti-oxidant. Polysaccharides and glycoproteins possessing hypogycemic and immunostimulant activities have also been isolated from its water extract.
Biochemical studies have also discovered Terpenoid, which indicated anti-cancer properties and lowering blood pressure, as well as beta-8-D-glucan in the mushroom. Other operating materials from the mushroom were useful in lowering the level of blood sugar, antithrombotic operation (activating blood platelet condensation control), hepatitis remedy and countermeasures against HIV, robustness and beauty culture. Russian scientists found Reishi showed a significant preventive and therapeutic action against plaque build-up. Plaque is fatty goo, which is comprised of a combination of oxidized cholesterol, calcium and degenarated white blood cells. It is deposited on the walls of arteries, which restricts blood flow by narrowing the passages of the arteries resulting in arteriosclerosis.
Studies in Japan on cancer research had proven Reishi to have an anti-tumour effect. This has given impetus to Dr Morishige to begin hsi studies of Reishi as a treatment for cancer particularly where the cases were given up as hopeless. The active anti-cancer constituents in Reishi are called beta-D-glucan, which is a polysaccharide - a huge sugar molecule made up of many little sugar molecules chained together and bound to amino acids. These intricate sugars stimulate or modulate the immune system by activating immune cells such as macrophage and helper T-cells, as well as increasing immunoglobin (a specific type of antibodies) levels to produce a heightened response to foreign cells, whether bacteria, viruses or tumour cells.
- High cholesterol
- HIV and AIDS
- Strength and stamina
- Viral infections
The Yamabushitake mushroom is being studied by scientists to ascertain the impact it has on dementia. There has been evidence of nerve cells stimulation and enhancement of cognitive abilities. Growth of nerves was also enahanced too even when astrocytoma cells from humans were used. Myelination was also enhanced.
Studies have indicated that Hericium erinaceus can be used to lull inflammation and cool down ulcers - gastric as well oesophagal ulcers. It can also treat Pancreatitis, a medical condition where one's pancreas become inflamed casued by digestive enzymes. This results in gradual corrosion of the pancreas and subsequent acute pain
