Rice mushroom, also known as the sea, Japanese or Indian fig, or "something like a frog game, only white" - all these names are composed of bacteria formation, which for centuries was used in oriental traditional medicine, but has been described by scientists only in 19 century and attributed to Zoogloea. Although it is called a mushroom, mushroom rice, as well as other zoogloeas, is not representative of this kingdom.
Zoogloea - this mucous formation, which is formed by bonding of a number of bacteria. Around the same way a film is formed in the fermentation of beer, wine and vinegar. In the process of the formation of all three types zoogloeas acetic acid bacteria are involved.
The name "rice mushroom" sounds strange, but it pays off. Rice mushroom resembles white boiled rice and was even brought from the region in which it grows a real figure.
The drink, which is obtained from the fermentation of rice by the fungus comprises a complex of chemical elements: an alcohol, acetic acid, gluconic acid, glucuronic acid, caffeine, oxalic acid, citric acid, lactic acid
Lactic acid - shows our health
, folic acid
Folic acid - the value is hard to overestimate
, W-coumaric acid and chlorogenic acid, vitamins C and D, tannins, polysaccharides, aldehydes, choline, lipase, amylase, protease and coenzyme Q10, alkaloids, glycosides and enzymes.
The composition of the infusion of rice fungus
- Folic acid - is involved in the metabolism and synthesis of certain amino acids and nucleic acids, stimulates the bone marrow hematopoietic function, and provides a better absorption of vitamin B12; It helps maintain a good mood. Folic acid is very important for the proper development of the fetus.
- Glucuronic acid is an important component of cartilage and synovial fluid.
- W-coumaric and chlorogenic acid are active antioxidant and citric acid to prevent formation of crystals of uric acid.
- Choline stimulates the parasympathetic nerves, lowers blood pressure, reduces heart rate and increases the tone of smooth muscles.
- Tannins have astringent and anti-inflammatory action. Enzymes direct, regulate and accelerate the biochemical processes in all cells of the body. Aldehydes give the drink a special mild flavor.
- Lipase facilitates lipolysis, amylase prevents the increase in blood sugar levels, the protease converts proteins into amino acids, improves the absorption of animal proteins. Q10 is involved in the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate and has antioxidative action.
The drink of rice fungus has antimicrobial, immunomodulatory, anti-sclerotic, tonic and diuretic. It also helps to normalize blood pressure and improve metabolism
Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
. Thus, it may be useful for the treatment and prevention of many diseases. In addition, experts on nutrition say that wishing to lose weight should drink at least 300 ml drink per day, and the desired result will not be long in coming.
Contraindications to the use of the drink as a cure is not found, because the effect of rice mushroom nobody has studied seriously. It is assumed that it is impossible to drink or to be used in very limited quantities for people with diabetes, gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer.
Preparation of the beverage
Pour into a clean glass jar liter of pure (filtered or boiled) water to add 3 tablespoons of sugar and stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Then put in the water 3 tablespoons of rice fungus (mushroom rice amount must be equal to the amount of sugar). If you wish, you can put in a jar and some dried fruit - raisins, dried apricots, and so on. Cover the jar in several layers of folded piece of gauze. The drink will be ready in one or two days. The same fungus rice can be washed and used again.
The beverage obtained in the fermentation of acetic acid bacteria and is composed of:
- essential fatty acids, which are squeezed out of the metabolic processes harmful fatty acids and promote the formation of "useful" cholesterol, that is, prevent the development of atherosclerosis;
- enzymes (biologically active substances that are involved in all chemical reactions in the body, many times their accelerating), and vitamins C and D (they are part of enzymes);
- antioxidants (e.g., N-coumaric and chlorogenic acid) - they slow yield of free radicals from the tissue cells during chemical reactions (yield free radicals contributes to the destruction of cells), thereby preventing the aging process, and for improving disease;
- glucuronic acid restores the metabolic processes in the cartilage of the joints and spine;
- Folic acid helps restore red blood cells involved in the formation of proteins necessary for the construction of body tissues;
- Yeast are a breeding ground for the development of normal intestinal microflora.
- How does a drink of rice fungus on the human body
- The drink of rice fungus has protivoateroskleroticheskim, antimicrobial and diuretic effect, restores the body's defenses (immune system), helps normalize blood pressure, improves metabolic processes in the body. It is recommended to take:
- in atherosclerosis and its prevention;
- at various metabolic disorders (including obesity);
- when metabolic disorders in the cartilage of joints and spine (eg osteoarthritis);
- with anemia;
- in intestinal dysbacteriosis
Intestinal dysbiosis - how dangerous it is?
- for preventing aging;
- after severe infectious diseases;
- after exacerbation of chronic diseases;
- under reduced immunity.
It is not recommended to consume the drink for diabetics (sugar in the drink there) and gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcers, as well as having an increased acidity of the stomach (in the drink high acidity).
Regulations preparation and use of a beverage from rice fungus
Take freshly washed liter glass jar, put on the bottom four tablespoons (no slides) of rice fungus and a few raisins.
Separately, prepare a solution for filling the basis of three tablespoons of sugar per liter of cold boiled water defended (you can take a special drinking bottled water). The solution was then added to a glass jar, which is already in the Marine rice and raisins, cover with gauze and leave in a dark place at room temperature for two days. Thereafter, it can be drunk, filtering through cheesecloth. Liter beverage cans is enough for one person for two days. Store beverage mushroom rice in the refrigerator no more than five days. Grains of rice fungus thoroughly washed and used for the preparation of a new portion of the beverage.
The drink of rice fungus is recommended to take a third cup 3 times a day for six weeks. For the treatment of diseases of the joints recommend apply compresses of drink and do warm baths.
The drink of rice fungus is applied to the cosmetic purposes: it restores the skin's natural acid reaction, thereby clearing it from bacteria and dead cells. The drink also tones the skin, smoothing it, giving it a fresh new look and preventing the appearance of wrinkles. Drinks can wipe the face and neck, rinse your mouth, used as a deodorant for the body to rinse after washing hair (they are brilliant). Tired feet can be removed by adding a drink of rice fungus in the foot bath.
