WHAT IS NEOGLUCAN®

NEOGLUCAN® is an extract from the oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus), produced using a patented technology. Pleurotus ostreatus is a wood-decaying, edible mushroom of the Pleurotaceae family. It is popular in gastronomy (due to its high nutritional values), and contains a number of biologically active substances with healing effects. It was known as the “divine flower” in ancient China.

The oyster mushroom grows wild from the beginning of summer until the end of winter, and can also be cultivated at home or in a laboratory environment. It is widespread globally, and it is the third most widely grown mushroom in the world.
The oyster mushroom contains carbohydrates (50 – 60%), proteins (19 – 30%), essential amino acids (except for tryptophan), vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B7, C), and minerals (Ca, Fe, Mg, P, K, Se, Na, Zn). Its significance lies in the polysaccharide beta (1-3) D-glucan content which has been closely studied for over 60 years due to its anti-tumour and immunostimulatory effects. These effects are based on the stimulation of the macrophage activity. Clinical tests have also confirmed its antioxidant protection effect on serum lipids and its hypolipidemic effect in the treatment of hyperlipoproteinemia.beta-glucan content in Oyster mushroom is very high – up to 60 – 65% of the dry matter of fruiting bodies. The hypocholesterolemic statin (lovastatin) content in dry matter is up to 2.8%.

The most significant pharmacological properties/effects of NEOGLUCAN®, oyster mushroom extract are:

  • Immunosuppressive effect.
  • Immunomodulatory effect.
  • Increases resistance against viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.
  • Anti-tumour effect.
  • Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect.
  • Hypolipidemic effect.
  • Other (e.g. anti-hyperglycemic, hepatoprotective effect).

Scientific articles on this topic

Part of the literature focuses on technology to obtain top quality extract, but the most convenient method for home use is to boil/braise the mushroom, and combine the therapeutic and culinary experience. (Papaspyridi 2010, Synytsya 2009, Liepins 2015, Králinský 2015)

However, the body is able to absorb more active substances from the safe, patented NEOGLUCAN® extract than from the mushroom, as chitin is removed from the mushroom in the production process. Without this process, the active substances are unusable by the human body. NEOGLUCAN® has a high purity level of, and is micronised below 6 micrometres, ensuring a high level of absorbance and efficiency in the digestive tract.

A number of scientific articles have described the positive anti-tumour effect (leukemia, solid tumours – large intestine tumours, endometrium tumour) on animals, and in vitro in human tumour cells. (Facchini 2014, Lavi 2006, Saragni 2006, Sanjana 2015, Silva 2011, Wolff 2008, De Silva 2012, Polyakov 2007, Olufemi 2012) The antiphlogistic effect was documented in vivo, but also on animals with arthritis and ulcerous colitis. (Rovenský 2011, Jedinak 2011, Bauerová 2009, Nosáľová 2001). The hypolipidemic effect was documented by the following authors. (Freire dos Santos 2013, Alam 2011, Rop 2009)
Slovak authors have primarily focused on the immunomodulatory, antiallergenic, and regenerative effects of glucans. (Jeseňák 2010, 2013, and 2013, Bergendiová 2011, and Bobovčák 2010).
Other documented effects of oyster mushroom extracts include: antimicrobial (Chowdhury 2015), antidiabetic (De Silva 2012), detoxicating (Naguib 2014).

To summarise – phenolic substances, terpenes, and polysaccharides are the most frequently cited active substances derived from fungi. Polysaccharides – beta-glucans, and less frequently alpha-glucans are administered both orally and parenterally as adjuvant therapy in various diseases and their symptoms (acute and chronic respiratory diseases, allergic and atopic diseases, immunomodulatory therapy, arthritis, and other inflammatory diseases, diabetes mellitus, hypercholesterolemia, hepatorenal disorder, supportive therapy in chemotherapy and radiotherapy, excess physical load, chronic fatigue, etc.). It should be noted that apart from the above, glucans also have a protective effect against the toxicity of drugs used in oncology (cytostatics), in autoimmune diseases (arthritis and immunosuppressants), and in intoxication.

HIGHLY PURIFIED BETA 1.3/1.6 GLUCAN

NEOGLUCAN® is a highly purified extract of beta 1.3/1.6 D-glucan

  • It has been produced using a patented technology since 1996.
  • It is extracted from Pleurotus ostreatus (oyster mushroom). The plants used for NEOGLUCAN® production are acquired from approved local growers.
  • It is a natural polysaccharide.
  • It significantly affects the proper function of the immune system.

NEOGLUCAN® is:


NATURAL NEOGLUCAN®

Pleurotus ostreatus is a special type of fungi which grows in Central Europe from which NEOGLUCAN® is extracted. The extraction yields pure vegetal extracts, and no chemical substances are added.

EFFICIENT NEOGLUCAN®

The last 60 years of research into the efficiency and health benefits of beta-glucan derived from the oyster mushroom have promoted general awareness among consumers, supported by its presence on markets that use beta-glucan traditionally (Asia, Japan).

MODERN NEOGLUCAN®

Vegetal supplements with health benefits have been used for hundreds of years. Beta-glucan from the oyster mushroom has only been examined in recent decades, and this has focused on modern research and production processes in phytopharmacy.

VALUABLE NEOGLUCAN®

The demand for beta-glucan from patients has been growing, as proven by the growing sales of commercial products (tablets, capsules, syrups) made from beta-glucan worldwide.

Powdered beta 1.3/1.6 D-glucan
The powdered product can be used:

as a dietary supplement, veterinary supplement, in the food industry, cosmetics industry, as an active agent to boost the immune system.
Packaging: 1 kg minimum.

BIOLOGICAL OYSTER MUSHROOM TINCTURE

The dietary supplement made from the oyster mushroom contains no stabilisers or chemical agents.

Thanks to its zinc content, it contributes to:

  • maintaining proper functioning of the immune system
  • fertility, proper reproductive function, and maintaining of normal testosterone level in blood
  • proper acid metabolism, bases, carbohydrates, fatty acids, and vitamin A metabolism
  • proper synthesis of proteins and DNA
  • cell protection against oxidative stress
  • maintaining healthy bones, hair, nails, skin, and eyes

The dietary supplement produced from oyster mushroom extract also contributes to proper functioning of cholesterol. The common denominator of this effect is beta 1.3 D-glucan and other water-soluble substances, such as vitamin E, vitamin C, niacin, arginine, methionine, biotin, unsaturated fatty acids, which help lowering bad cholesterol in blood, preventive and in combination with a healthy diet.
