Agaricus Blazei mushroom is as important a finding as was penicillin in the 1920’s. Modern research is showing that the main medicinal properties of this mushroom are anti-tumor and immune enhancement. In almost all of the studies published to date, the rate of tumor remission for all types of cancer has been amazingly high! Most of these studies have been done with rats or guinea pigs, but the hope is that results should be similar in humans. The largest and most complete human trials today are being done in China and Japan. Some of the more important active ingredients are: Beta-(1-3)-D-glucan, Beta-(1-4)-a -D-glucan & Beta – (1-6)-D-glucan. Known collectively as Beta-glucans, these substances are the most potent immunopotentiating (immune enhancing) substances yet found. They also have very powerful anti-tumor properties. It is thought by most scientists that the anti-tumor properties of these chemicals are directly resultant from the immune enhancement. That is, the beta-glucans do not directly cause the anti-tumor effect, but rather they trigger the bodies’ own anti-tumor response. This is relatively easy to measure, as the human body produces a type of anti-tumor white blood cell known as Natural Killer cells (NK cells). When human subjects are given BLAZEI in their diet, a 3000% increase of NK cells in the blood is seen within 2-4 days.
Double stranded RNA – Anti-viral agent.
Proteoglucans and Protein bound Polysaccharides (low molecular weight) – Immune enhancement.
Protein bound polysaccharides of high molecular weight (referred to in the literature as “ATOM”) – provide a host-mediated anti cancer response against at least four different types of cancer in tests conducted at the Mei University School of Medicine in Japan. (ATOM)
NutraceuticsRx uses only AgariPure™ prime “A” grade Agaricus Blazei mushroom. AgariPure™ is a full spectrum product that contains all of the active components of the Agaricus Mushroom. AgariPure™ uses both water and ethanol extraction techniques. Some of the active components of the Agaricus Blazei mushrooms are not water soluble and therefore must be extracted by alcohol. AgariPure™ is meticulously extracted to contain a ultra high polysaccharide content of 55%.
