Agaricus Blazei
Agaricus blazei was originally found in Brazil and has a long history as a folk remedy in those areas where it was originally discovered. Although currently popular in China, Korea and Japan, Agaricus blazei has no history of use in Traditional East Asian Medicine.

Research, begun in the 1990s, has also shown that Agaricus Blazei contains a unique beta 1-6 linkage and contains the highest levels of beta glucan yet found in a medicinal mushroom.

Immune modulation.*

Instructions For Use
Two to four capsules two times daily.

Toxicity, Cautions, Contraindications
Agaricus blazei polysaccharides are considered to be safe and nontoxic. However, immuno-modulating substances should be used with extreme care or avoided completely in organ-transplant patients utilizing immuno-suppressive agents.

Clinical Research
The in-vitro research and animal studies both show significant immuno-modulating properties.*

Active Constituents
Ergosterols, Polysaccharides

Extraction Information
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 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 compounds. Our 45% polysaccharide extract is the only hot-water-extracted form of Agaricus blazei now being sold in North America.

Agaricus blazei is the only medicinal mushroom used in the U.S. from the family Agaricaceae, the same family that contains the edible mushroom most commonly purchased in the U.S., the "button mushroom" (Agaricus bisporus). Native to the tropics of Brazil, it grows in fields and pastures, fruits in the spring, with the mushrooms commonly found fruiting in clumps. The fruit bodies are 3-5 inches in height, beige to brown in color, with a scaling pattern of darker brown coloration appearing on the surface of the mushroom caps.
