Indian Sea Rice, or Zoogloea

Thursday, 18 June 2009

indian sea rice zoogloea Sea Rice, Sea Mushroom, Indian Rice, Chinese Sea Rice, Japanese Mushroom, Live Rice and «something like a frogspawn of white color», all come to one and the same tiny organism which was throughout the time practiced by folk medicine, though to the half of 19th century it was first depicted and referred to zoogloea. The public refer Sea Rice, Tea Mushroom, Tibetian Milk Mushroom to the whole class of mushrooms, though zoogloea does not present this glorious kingdom.

Use of zoogloea differs from country to country, from town to town. Some nations drink tea adding ‘something like a frogspawn of white color' and tea is said to be tasteful. They also put this stuff into the milk and drink it for its healing effect.

Zoogloea is a special state of bacterial cells when their capsules become slimy and form gelatinous structures or films. Zoogloea consists of polysaccharides, sometimes with an admixture of nitrogenous compounds. It is inherent only in some (mainly water) bacteria, particularly in the Zoogloea ramigera genus.

There are a lot of Zoogloea types in nature, however, only three of them are domesticated and studied at most. They are ‘Tibicos', ‘Kombucha' and ‘Tibetan milk mushroom'.

All three Zoogloeas are absolutely different cultures with their own features and constitutions.

The only thing combining them is a presence of acetic-acid bacteria.

So, how about the name, Indian Sea Rice? Can anybody tell what it means? Though, it can be easily explained. It is Rice because the flakes of Zoogloea resemble translucent overcooked rice grains. It is Sea Rice for it is a foreign stuff that come from overseas. It is Indian Sea Rice since the most stunning and magic thing come from India, country of magic, to the opinion of the residents of 19th century.

A drink is traditionally made from the Indian Sea Rice. The tincture has complex chemical compound. It contains alcohol, acetic and gluconic acids, caffeine, oxalic, citric, lactic and folic acids, Vitamins С and О, tannins, polysaccharides, aldehydes, choline, alkaloids, glycosides and enzymes.

The tincture of Sea Rice has a powerful therapeutic effect due to the high concentration of useful and essential agents for the organism.

Folic acid, also known as Vitamin В9, participates in metabolism and synthesis of several aminoacids, in the synthesis of nucleic acids, it stimulates hematopoietic function of the marrow and facilitates better digestion of Vitamin B12. Folic acid gives an excellent mood to you and normalizes your blood.

Gluconic acid is the most essential component for the cartilaginous tissue and joint fluid.

W-cumaric and chlorogenic acids are active antioxidants, while citric acid prevents formation of urine acid stones. Choline provokes the parasympathetic nerve, lowers the arterial pressure, reduces pulse rate and increases excitability unstriated muscles.

Tannins have astringent and antiphlogistic effect; aldehydes give the tincture some weak specific aroma. Enzymes are substances of albuminous class that present in all living cells. They conduct, regulate and accelerate biochemical processes when binding with co-enzymes.

The tincture of the Indian Sea Rice is believed to discover lipase, amylase, protease and coenzyme Q10.

Lipase is involved in breakup or formation of fat, amylase prevents high concentration of glucose in blood, whereas protease splits proteins into aminoacids, meaning they stimulate digestion of animal protein, yet, Q10 goes in the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate, ATP and has anti-oxidant action.

As it is widely practiced, people tend to find cure-all taking Zoogloea. There are people who are still in sincere belief that the Indian Sea Rice helps to cure absolutely all diseases, irrespective of severity. It is hardly true, though we need to believe in something that makes us happier.

Just consider the peculiarities of components of the tincture. They have antibacterial and immune-response modulating effect, they reduce blood pressure, they improve metabolism process, they have tonic and diuretic impact. Therefore, people tend to believe that drinking this tincture will only bring to cure from almost all diseases. No other ways to believe!

Those who sleep and dream of losing weight are advised that they drink about 300ml of such tincture a day, and the result is ensured!

It's hard to talk about contraindications since there are no serious scientific researchers are available on impact of this microorganism to a human organism. Though, it is still obvious that the tincture made from the Sea Rice is not recommended for people with diabetes milletus, people who suffer from gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer and high gastric acidity.
