Agaricus Blazei Mushroom
Also known as: Agaricus Blazei, Agaricus Blazei Murill, Brazil Mushroom, Organic Agaricus Blazei Mushroom Extract
Agaricus blazei is native to the Brazilian village of Piedade, where the local people were known for their remarkably good health into old age. Agaricus blazei mushrooms were a regular part of their diet, which inspired Takatoshi Furumoto, a Japanese-born scientist living in Brazil to study the mushrooms, with samples also being analyzed by third-parties at the University of Buenos Aries, the University of Province of Mie in Japan, as well as a national research center in Japan. The research suggested that Agaricus blazei mushrooms did in fact play a role in the health of the people of Piedade, showing promise as an immune system booster and cellular defender. Agaricus blazei is also believed to have adaptogenic properties, helping fight physical and emotional stress.
