The hypolipidemic effect of an exo-biopolymer produced from a submerged mycelial culture of Hericium erinaceus was investigated in dietary-induced hyperlipidemic rats. Hypolipidemic effects were proportionally increased with the increasing concentration of the exo-biopolymer for oral administration. The exo-biopolymer, at the dose of 200 mg/kg body weight, substantially reduced the plasma total cholesterol (32.9%), LDL cholesterol (45.4%), triglyceride (34.3%), phospholipid (18.9%), atherogenic… 
Hypolipidemic Effects of Biopolymers Extracted from Culture Broth, Mycelia, and Fruiting Bodies of Auricularia auricula-judae in Dietary-induced Hyperlipidemic Rats
Hypolipidemic effect of biopolymers extracted from culture broth, mycelia, and fruiting bodies of Auricularia auricula-judae was investigated in dietary-induced hyperlipidemic rats, and FP was proved to be the most potent one.
Hypolipidaemic Effect of Hericium erinaceum Grown in Artemisia capillaris on Obese Rats
Results show HEAC possesses an ability to cure hyperlipidemia in rats and may serve as an effective natural medicine for treating hyperlipidsemia in humans.
Recent developments in Hericium erinaceus polysaccharides: extraction, purification, structural characteristics and biological activities
In this review, the current advancements on extraction, purification, structural characteristics and biological activities of polysaccharide from different sources (fruiting body, mycelium and culture broth) of H. erinaceus were summarized and compared.
Effect of Hericium erinaceus Mycelia Supplementation on the Oxidative Stress and Inflammation Processes Stimulated by LPS and Their Mechanisms in BALB/C Mice
This study was carried out to investigate the anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory actions of Hericium erinaceus mycelia in BALB/C mice injected with lopopolysaccharide (LPS), called endotoxin. Mice

The results demonstrate that HEPS exhibit antioxidant and neuroprotective effects on Aβ-induced neurotoxicity in neurons.
Anti-obesity effect of robusta fermented with Leuconostoc mesenteroides in high-fat diet-induced obese mice.
It is demonstrated that 20% RMR-LM may be used to prevent obesity, and ameliorate diabetes and lipid metabolism imbalances.
Cryoprotective Properties of the Polysaccharide Fraction of the Mushroom Hericium erinaceus BP 16
It was found that the presence of PF in a glycerin-containing preservative ensures the safety of human nuclear blood cells at −20 and −80°C, which indicated the cryoprotective activity of PF H. erinaceus BP 16.


Hypolipidemic effect of an exo-biopolymer produced from submerged mycelial culture of Auricularia polytricha in rats
The hypolipidemic effect of an exo-biopolymer (EBP) produced from a submerged mycelial culture of the mushroom fungus, Auricularia polytricha, was investigated in the dietary-induced hyperlipidemic
Hypoglycemic Effect of a Lentinus edodes Exo-polymer Producedfrom a Submerged Mycelial Culture
The hypoglycemic effect of an exo-polymer produced from a submerged mycelial culture of Lentinus edodes was investigated in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats and a single peak was found to have been a glycoprotein with a molecular weight of 52kDa.
Hypocholesterolemic action of eritadenine is mediated by a modification of hepatic phospholipid metabolism in rats.
Both the PC:PE ratio and the SAM:SAH ratio decreased significantly prior to the decrease in the plasma cholesterol concentration in response to eritadenine supplementation, supporting the hypothesis that the alteration of hepatic phospholipid metabolism may be a cause of the hypocholesterolemic action of eritenine.
Isolation of Antimicrobial Substances from Hericium erinaceum
The purified materials from the extracts showed antimicrobial effects to Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans and Microsporum gypseum.
Improved Hypolipidemic Effects of Xanthan Gum-Galactomannan Mixtures in Rats
Results showed that a mixture of xanthan gum and guar gum has an improved hypolipidemic effect on non-diabetic and STZ diabetic rats.
Relationship between structure and function of dietary fibre: a comparative study of the effects of three galactomannans on cholesterol metabolism in the rat
Dietary galactomannans increased caecal volatile fatty acids, particularly propionic, increased the weight of the caecum and its contents and increased the amount of water in the faeces, but the most effective galactsomannan, fenugreek gum, had no direct effect on cholesterol absorption.
Synthesis and Absolute Configuration of a Cytotoxic Fatty Acid Isolated from the Mushroom, Hericium erinaceum
The naturally occurring (–)-enantiomer of a fatty acid isolated from the mushroom (Hericium erinaceum) was synthesized from (R)-(–)-benzyl glycidyl ether in 8 steps. A comparison of the specific
Dietary soluble fiber lowers plasma LDL cholesterol concentrations by altering lipoprotein metabolism in female guinea pigs.
The results suggest that the mechanisms of plasma LDL cholesterol lowering by dietary soluble fiber are distinctive for each fiber source and result in specific alterations in lipoprotein metabolism in female guinea pigs.
Interaction of bile acids, phospholipids, cholesterol and triglyceride with dietary fibers in the small intestine of rats.
The ratio of bile acids in the aqueous phase to that in total intestinal contents was significantly higher in the GG and KM groups and significantly lower in the CH group than that in the CE group, demonstrating that the bile acid are bound or trapped by each of these fiber sources.
