Abstract

The objective of the study was to investigate the antioxidant effect of Chinese medicine Coriolus versicolor check for this species in other resources polysaccharide on brain tissue and its mechanism in rats.

The results showed that Coriolus versicolor polysaccharide can reduce the lipid peroxidation level in brain tissues during exhaustive exercise in rats, and can accelerate the removal of free radicals. The study concluded that its antioxidant effect is relatively apparent.
