Reference from the manufacturer:
Originating from the mountain region of Piedade, Brazil,
Royal Agaricus (Agaricus blazei Murill) has become quite popular there
and in Asia as a panacea and also for its use in cancer. Interest was
peaked when a much lower occurrence of adult diseases was found in this
region. Research done in Japan in 1980's and 1990's appears to support
these benefits. Studies demonstrate possible use in recovery from cancer
as well as in prevention of the imbalance, while also shown promise for
this mushroom's ability of lower blood glucose, serum cholesterol, and
blood pressure, as well as that of strong immune enhancement. In Brazil,
Agaricus is called "Cogmelo de Deus," Mushroom of God.
