Product Info*

The Brazilian mushroom Agaricus blazei Murill (ABM) is the number 1 health food in Japan and Brazil. Studies have confirmed its enhancement and restoration of many physiological functions through its rich content in bioactive complex polysaccharides.

Agaricus blazei Murill requires unusual weather and soil conditions, making it a precious rarity. We use only the best wild, grade A Brazilian mushroom and an authentic Japanese strain (Iwade strain 101) as starting materials. They are grown with a proprietary blend of trace elements and then broken carefully to fine size using a novel cell rupturing technology that greatly enhances their assimilation into the body. Our product is highly enriched in bioactive polysaccharides, including α-D-glucan、β-D-glucan、β-(1-6)-D-glucan-protein complex, and xyloglucan-protein complex as well as trace elements not found in our normal diets.

Clinical Trials & Research Reports**

  • 14 studies verified that there is in vitro and in vivo research demonstrating Agaricus blazei Murrill's influence on the immune system.**
    —Journal of Medicinal Food, 20111

  • The medicinal mushroom Agaricus blazei Murrill has been shown to have beneficial effects on a range of diseases including infections, allergy/asthma, and inflammatory disorders.**
    —Advances in Pharmacological Sciences, 20112

  • Various polysaccharides, such as beta-glucans, and protein-bound polysaccharides isolated from mycelia and fruiting bodies have shown anti-tumor activity both in vitro and in tumor-bearing mice.**
    —Nutrition and Cancer, 20093

  • In controlled human trials, polysaccharide intake stimulated the immune system in the blood of healthy adults, dampened the allergic response to a respiratory inflammatory agent, and improved survival in cancer patients.**
    —Nutrition Journal, 20104

  • Agaricus blazei Murrill is saturated with Beta-glucan, a polysaccharide known to help one's immune system. Scientists believe the beta-glucan levels in Agaricus blazei are the highest within the mushroom kingdom. The beta-glucan in Agaricus blazei has a low molecular weight, making it more absorbable and particularly advantageous against tumor cells.**
