There are several scientific studies supporting that high-molecular-weight polysaccharides can produce greater immune stimulating effects.
The primary active compound, the hot water-extracted polysaccharides of Grifola Umbellata, is composed of B(1-3) (1-6) D-glucans.
In recent Japanese animal studies on the anti-cancer effects of various medicinal mushrooms, Grifola Umbellata produced the second best result of all.
The higher ordered structures (triple helices) of high- molecular-weight B-D-glucans are believed to be responsible for the considerable immunomodulatory activity (Maeda et al. , 1988) .
