Atlas World Agaricus Bio Super Liquid Extra Strength - 80 Liquid-Filled Capsules
Agaricus blazei is an edible mushroom native to Brazil and cultivated in Japan for its medicinal uses. It has been used to treat arteriosclerosis, hepatitis, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, dermatitis and cancer. Studies have shown that this mushroom supplement has immune boosting properties.
For those who need a stronger dose of Agaricus blazei, there is Agaricus Bio Extra Strength. This product contains a highly concentrated liquid extract of the mushroom Agaricus blazei in capsule form. To make this product, organic Agaricus blazei fruitbodies go through multiple levels of liquid extractions. Each stage of extraction utilizes different temperatures and atmospheric pressures, thoroughly concentrating active compounds naturally contained in Agaricus blazei. The liquid extract material is then condensed to less than 5% moisture content by low heat/low vacuum concentration. Lastly, highly concentrated Agaricus blazei liquid extract is encapsulated in 100% vegetarian, very fast dissolution capsules.
This provides faster absorption and flavorless easier intake. The product can enhance your wellness by strengthening NK cell, T-cell, and macrophage activity*.
The NIH (National Institute of Health) sponsored studies; "Antitumor Promoting Effects of Agaricus blazei" and “Cancer Chemopreventive Effect of Agaricus blazei Murill” by Dr. Mutsuo Kozuka have inspired the development of this formula*. The research team used a strain of Agaricus blazei Murill which is exclusive to Atlas World USA, Inc and is the same strain which can be found in all our products.
Published research has shown Agaricus blazei can support the activity of the following immune system cells:
- NK cells
- Polymorphonuclear leukocytes
- T cells
Published research has shown Agaricus blazei can support the production of the following immune system cytokines (signaling molecules):
- TNF-á (Tumor necrosis factor-alpha)
- Interferons (á, â, and ã)
- Interleukins (1, 6, 8, 12, and 18)
Agaricus blazei contains the following compounds:
- â-Glucans (including â-1,3-glucans, â-1,6-glucans, â-1,3/1,6-glucans)
- Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)
- Protein-bound polysaccharides
- Low molecular weight polysaccharides
- Sodium pyroglutamate, â-Galactoglucan, acid heteroglucan, xyloglucan, and lectin.
Published research has also indicated Agaricus blazei may:
- Support cellular health
- Have an inhibitory effect on angiogenesis
- Support healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels
- Support antioxidant activity
Agaricus blazei's ability to impact the immune system continues to be a subject of international research. Published research has shown that Agaricus blazei may be able to increase the activity of some of the most important immune system cells of the body like macrophage, NK cells, and polymorphonuclear leukocytes.
In addition, research has shown that Agaricus blazei may stimulate the production of immune system cytokines. Cytokines, are signalling proteins used by the immune system to carry out a variety of important functions. Amazingly, the mushroom has been shown to stimulate the production of over 15 different cytokines including those multiple types of interferons and interleukins!
