Agaricus Blazei

Nature's Most Powerful Beta 1-6 Glucan

Dehydrated Hot Water Extract
45% beta 1-6 glucan (polysaccharide)

Latin ... Agaricus blazei
Japanese ... Himenmatsutake
Common name ... Royal Sun Agaricus

Agaricus blazei is a relatively new addition to the family of medicinal mushrooms with research beginning in the 1980's. This species contains a unique beta 1-6 linkage and has an extensive history of use as a folk remedy in the areas of Brazil where it was originally discovered. Research has also shown that Agaricus blazei contains more beta glucans than any of the other medicinal mushrooms tested so far. The in-vitro research and animal studies both show significant immune stimulating properties. The human immune system, comprised mainly of tissues and cells defends the body against diseases. More specifically, Natural Killer cells or NK cells play a critical role in neutralizing outside organisms that enter the body.

In 1995, Dr. Mamdooh Ghoneum, Ph.D., from King Drew Medical Center of UCLA, found that the Agaricus mushroom increases the total number of all immune cells within the body. In addition, he discovered that the Agaricus not only increased the number of NK cells, but also made each individual NK cell more powerful.

The Agaricus blazei mushroom, has been found to have a positive effect in strengthening and increasing Natural Killer cells in in vitro studies.

Research has been done on water soluble and alcohol soluble fractions of the polysaccharides, all of which were isolated through a hot water or hot water/alcohol extraction process. As with the other medicinal mushrooms, the primary active compounds in Agaricus blazei, the polysaccharides, are internal structural components of the indigestible cell walls. Extraction with a heated aqueous solution is required to release these active compounds into a bio-available form.

Our product is a hot water/alcohol extract, ensuring the presence of both the water and alcohol soluble fractions of the polysaccharides. Mushroom Science Agaricus extract is the purest and most potent extract available.
