Antioxidant and Immunomodulating Activities of Exo-and Endopolysaccharide Fractions from Submerged Mycelia Cultures of Culinary-Medicinal Mushrooms.

Int J Med Mushrooms. 2013; 15(3): 251-66
Jeong SC, Koyyalamudi SR, Hughes J, Khoo C, Bailey T, Marripudi K, Park JP, Kim JH, Song CH

A number of mushrooms are known to possess pharmacological activities. In this study, the phenolic and flavonoid contents of extracts of exo- and endopolysaccharide fractions obtained from submerged mycelia cultures of 7 edible or medicinal mushroom species, as well as their antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties, were evaluated. The exo- and endopolysaccharide yields were 0.576-1.950 and 0.438-0.933 g/L, respectively. The sugar and protein contents of these fractions were analyzed and contained predominantly sugars (52.3-87.6%). The exo- and endopolysaccharide fractions contained appreciable amounts of phenolics and flavonoids. The highest flavonoid contents were found in Cryptosporus volvatus (349.6 mg/g), followed by Cordyceps militaris (312.6 mg/g). The antioxidant activities were evaluated by 4 assays: biological assay using Saccharomyces cerevisiae, DPPH radical scavenging activity, chelating ability for ferrous ions and ferric reducing antioxidant power. The mycelia polysaccharide fractions had more ferric reducing antioxidant power than other antioxidant activities. Both exo- and endo polysaccharides of C. volvatus inhibited production of the T lymphocyte Th1 cytokines interferon (IFN)-γ and interleukin (IL)-2, the Th2 cytokines IL-4 and IL-5, and macrophage enzyme activity. Although those from C. militaris had similar inhibitory effects on cytokine production, the exopolysaccharides stimulated macrophage enzyme activity. The other exopolysaccharides (Pleurotus citrinopileatus, P. australis, and P. pulmonarius) inhibited IFN-γ and IL-5 production, but they had varying effects on IL-2 and IL-4 production. Only 3 exopolysaccharides (P. pulmonarius, Tremella mesenterica, and Cordyceps sinensis) also stimulated macrophage enzyme activity to the same extent as lipopolysaccharides. All of them reduced IL-5 production, but those from T. mesenterica also inhibited IFN-γ, IL-2, and IL-4 production. Thus the polysaccharide fractions from the mushrooms studied have antioxidant activities and general immunomodulating effects in vitro.

Resolved Question: hemp oil vs hempseed oil and ingesting it?

ok so i have been reading about how hemp(seed) oil is wonderful and should be added to ones diet and i want to, but i am confused as to the difference between hemp oil and hempseed oil. as of right now i use this ecaxt product on my face as it moisturizes and i am not allergic to it (which is like a miracle for me) but i dont want to ingest it if its gonna show positive on a drug test (i dont do drugs of any sort and dont need eople thinking otherwise) and also, i dont know if i should take the hemp oil (that i have) or the hempseed oil (assuming there actually is a difference). anyways, somebody please clear this up for me!! thank you very much in advance ^.^
and by exact product, i meant to insert this: http://www.amazon.com/Nutiva-Organic-Hemp-24-Ounce-Bottle/dp/B000GAO91K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1368774265&sr=8-1&keywords=nutiva+hemp+oil
