Product Information

Best Known For

Agaricus blazei enjoys popularity due to its potential health benefits. Primarily, it is recognized for its immune-enhancing properties, attributed to its high content of beta-glucans. These components are believed to strengthen the body's defenses against various illnesses. Agaricus blazei is also considered for its potential in cancer prevention and treatment, thanks to its purported anti-tumor effects. Additionally, it is used to aid in managing blood sugar levels and improving cholesterol profiles, which can be crucial for cardiovascular health. The mushroom's anti-inflammatory properties are also leveraged to alleviate symptoms of inflammatory conditions. Available in several convenient forms, including extracts and powders, Agaricus blazei is a favored supplement among health-conscious individuals.

Did you know?

Immune System Booster: Agaricus Blazei mushrooms are known for their potent immune-boosting properties. They contain high levels of beta-glucans, which stimulate the immune system and help the body fight off infections and diseases more effectively.

Rich in Antioxidants: Agaricus Blazei is packed with antioxidants that help protect the body from oxidative stress and free radical damage. These antioxidants can contribute to overall health, support cellular health, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

Directions for Use

The daily serving / dose for this extract is 1000mg, or about 1/2 teaspoon per day. Because the density and weight of each extract can vary, it is best to measure out 1000mg (1 gram) on a kitchen scale to be precise, but a little more or less is not a concern.
This extract can be easily added to a cup of coffee or tea, a smoothie or shake, or into soups or other foods.
While there is no "best time" to take it, we find that mornings are best because of the energy boost that is often associated with it.

Here is some more detailed information to help you.

Fruiting body vs Mycelium and Spores

There is a lot of discussion around which parts of the mushroom should be used for extraction. Here is a short explanation:
In mushrooms, the part that is typically used for extracting nutrients and compounds is the fruiting body, which is the visible part of the mushroom that emerges above ground. This is because the fruiting body contains most of the bioactive compounds, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial substances.

The fruiting body is rich in nutrients and bioactive compounds because it is where the reproductive structures of the mushroom develop. These structures contain various substances that the mushroom needs for growth and reproduction, as well as compounds that help defend against pathogens and predators.

However, it's worth noting that different parts of the mushroom may have different nutritional profiles and concentrations of bioactive compounds. For example, some mushrooms also produce mycelium, the underground network of fungal threads, which can also contain valuable nutrients and compounds. Additionally, certain species of mushrooms may have medicinal properties associated with specific parts of the organism, such as the mycelium or even the spores. Therefore, the specific part of the mushroom used for extraction can depend on the desired nutrients or compounds and the intended use.

We always use the fruiting body for our extracts but we are also working on developing special compound extracts from other parts like the mycelium and spores. Keep an eye on our blogs and subscribe to our newsletter to get notified of these advancements as they happen.

Extraction Process

We use a very unique and effective dual or triple extraction process that includes enzymatic extraction, hot water extraction and even solvent extraction for certain mushrooms and/or desired compounds. This ensures that all of the beneficial nutrients are extracted from the mushroom fruiting body. It also breaks down the chitin.

Chitin is like the tough armor that mushrooms wear, similar to how insects have their exoskeletons. This armor protects the mushroom's cells, but it's tough for our bodies to break down and use as food.

For us to get the nutrients from mushrooms, we need to break down this armor into smaller, digestible parts. Enzymes called chitinases do this job. They break down the chitin into smaller pieces that our bodies can absorb and use for energy.

So, without breaking down chitin, we can't get the nutrients from mushrooms.

This mushroom is notable for its almond-like taste and its potential medicinal properties. It is rich in beta-glucans, a type of fiber that is known to help boost the immune system. Agaricus blazei is often used in alternative medicine to support immune health and is also believed to have anti-cancer properties. People also use it to help manage blood sugar levels and reduce cholesterol. Additionally, it is thought to have anti-inflammatory effects, which can be beneficial for reducing symptoms in conditions such as arthritis. Available in various forms like capsules, powders, and teas, Agaricus blazei is easy to incorporate into daily routines.

For Pets

Agaricus blazei mushroom extract is beneficial for pets, primarily supporting immune health and potentially fighting cancer. Rich in beta-glucans and other polysaccharides, it enhances immune responses and promotes better overall health. Often incorporated into pet supplements, it may also improve liver function and aid in detoxification processes. This extract is used to support longevity and vitality, making it a popular choice for maintaining the wellness of companion animals.

The daily dose for dogs and cats is about 10 mg per pound mixed into their food.
For example, if your dog is 50 pounds, they would get 500 mg or about a quarter teaspoon.
