Agaricus Blazei, commonly known as the Sun Mushroom was originally discovered during the 1970s from the Piedate mountain region outside of Sao Paolo, Brazil.  This unique medicinal mushroom has an extensive history of use as a folk remedy in Japan and South America. Current clinical studies reveal its beneficial effect on supporting normal immune functions (1), normal seasonal histamine level (2), normal glucose metabolisms (3), and better quality of life (4).

Active Constituents:

Other than containing a significant amount of exacellular beta D-glucanlectin, the Agaricus mushroom is a great source of trace minerals such as copper, zinc, silicon, and manganese.  The combinations of these elements are the key resulting to its extraordinary health beneficial effects.
