**Important NEWS**We are currently out of stock. Our farms have not been able to grow and produce the ABM mushrooms yet. We sincerely apologize but we will let you know as soon as we begin our production.
Dried Halved Agaricus Blazei Murill Mushrooms from our Farms in Brazil.
This package contains 50 grams packaged in a recycled eco-friendly tin container to ensure freshness.
How we grow and process our agaricus:
Our agaricus blazei murill mushroom is grown under strict
quality and hygienic controls. First, the correct compost must be
prepared. Then we pasteurize and sterilize the compost to make sure that the compost is not contaminated with other fungi, insects and bacteria.
Once the compost has been prepared correctly, we then inoculate the
compost with agaricus blazei murill mushroom hyphae. Then the compost
material with the fully developed agaricus blazei murill mushroom
mycelia is placed on open land that has ample sunlight. A layer of
sterilized and treated soil is used to cover the mushroom bed. Once in
place, the agaricus blazei murill mushroom receives plenty of water to
keep the soil and compost layers moist. Without sufficient moisture, ABM
(agaricus blazei murill mushroom) will not fruit. Once the agaricus
blazei murill mushroom is ready to harvest, we harvest the ABM (agaricus
blazei murill mushroom) as quick as possible since agaricus blazei
murill mushroom starts to spoil very rapidly. The ABM (agaricus blazei
murill mushroom) is rinsed and cut into halves and readied for drying.
Drying is done through a slow drying process at temperatures of 40
Celsius to about 43 Celsius. It is very important to dry the agaricus
blazei murill mushroom slowly so that the ABM does not cook or become
shocked. Once dried, the agaricus blazei murill mushroom is carefully
selected by hand and all agaricus blazei murill mushroom that does not
meet our standards are separated. Routine samples are also taken and
sent to laboratories for analysis.
Agaricus Blazei Murill, which is also commonly known as Cogumelo do Sol,
Cogumelo de Deus, and Himematsutake is a mushroom that is originally
native to a small village, named Piedade in Brazil. ABM was first
discovered by Dr. Takatoshi Furumoto who had noticed that inhabitants of
that region were statistically much healthier than the average
population with unusually low occurrences of geriatric diseases as well
as low incidences of cancer. Further research by other researchers such
as Dr. Shobo Shibata and Dr. Tetsuo Ikegawa revealed the actual
pharmacological actions of this mushroom. They discovered that the ABM
was rich in polysaccharide compounds, which assist in boosting the
immune system. Research has found that the two principal polysaccharide
compounds, which exist in ABM, are (Beta) 1,3-D Glucan and (Beta)
1,6-D Glucan. Researchers have found that the concentrations of Beta()
1,3-D Glucan and Beta() 1,6-D Glucan are higher in ABM than in any
other mushroom types including Reishi, Maitake and Shitake. Other
research has also shown that ABM is high in ergosterols, linoleic acid
and palmitorenic acid as well as Vitamin B6 and B12.
ABM has been shown to have a beneficial effect on the various ailments:
- Cancer: Studies on the agaricus blazei murill mushrooms
have shown that the mushroom may be helpful in various types of cancer.
As with other therapies, this is a natural therapy and you should
consult a doctor or seek medical advise.
- Diabetes: Studies have shown that agaricus blazei mushrooms may help to reduce blood glucose levels
- Hepatitis: Studies have shown that ABM may be helpful in certain cases of Hepatitis
- Studies have shown that ABM may also help to reduce high blood pressure and cholesterol.
Please note that we cannot say that the agaricus mushroom
will cure any disease. It is a natural supplemental therapy that should
be used in conjunction to what your doctor may advise. A very good
