                               Agaricus Mushroom
BACK to frequently asked  

Agaricus Blazei Murill, which is also commonly known as Cogumelo do Sol, Cogumelo de Deus, and Himematsutake is a mushroom that is originally native to a small village, named Piedade in Brazil. ABM was first discovered by Dr. Takatoshi Furumoto who had noticed that inhabitants of that region were statistically much healthier than the average population with unusually low occurrences of geriatric diseases as well as low incidences of cancer. Further research by other researchers such as Dr. Shobo Shibata and Dr. Tetsuo Ikegawa revealed the actual pharmacological actions of this mushroom. They discovered that the ABM was rich in polysaccharide compounds, which assist in boosting the immune system. Research has found that the two principal polysaccharide compounds, which exist in ABM, are ゚(Beta) 1,3-D Glucan and ゚(Beta) 1,6-D Glucan. Researchers have found that the concentrations of Beta(゚) 1,3-D Glucan and Beta(゚) 1,6-D Glucan are higher in ABM than in any other mushroom types including Reishi, Maitake and Shitake. Other research has also shown that ABM is high in ergosterols, linoleic acid and palmitorenic acid as well as Vitamin B6 and B12.
