Silver Edition: AGi
Silver Edition: AGi - Agaricus Blazei is a species of mushroom, known as himematsutake and by a number of other names. This mushroom is best known for its purported medicinal properties. Because of its high beta glucan content, higher than both Reishi and Shiitake mushrooms, Agaricus Blazei is used in oncological therapy (branch of medicine that studies the development, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of tumor/cancer), mainly in Japan and California. It has been commercially cultivated in Asia and South America since 1993. Because of this valuable polysaccharide, and lack of supply, Agaricus blazei used to be relatively expensive, until it was sucessfully artificiallly cultivated in mushroom farms. Agaricus blazei mushroom specifically assists in the production of interferon and interleukin, which are potent in fighting off cancer cell metastasis, especially cancer of the uterus. It also reduces blood glucose, blood pressure, cholesterol levels and the effects of arteriosclerosis.
ABM is known to contain three different beta-glucans – beta-(1-3)-D-glucan, beta-(1-4)-a -D-glucan, and beta-(1-6)-D-glucan.
