Benefits of agaricus bisporus extract powder
Heart Health Benefits
Heart disease is a leading cause of death throughout the world,but consuming button mushrooms can keep
you from becoming another statistic.A major risk factor for heart disease is atherogenesis,which is the
formation of plaque on arterial walls,which causes atherosclerosis and hardening of the arteries.Researchers
at Arizona State University tested the effects of button mushrooms on the human endothelial cells in a test
tube.The results of their study,published in the July 2010 issue of”Nutrition Journal,”show that button
mushrooms reduce inflammation in arterial cells and prevent white blood cells from sticking to arterial walls
The researchers conclude that consuming button mushrooms may be a means to prevent heart disease.
Immune System Benefits
Specific cell in the body,referred to as natural killer cells,respond rapidly to foreign invaders such as viruses
or cancer cells.Their rapid response is crucial to the immune system,as it helps the body fight disease.The
June 2007 issue of the”Journal of Nutrition”reports that eating button mushrooms can boost the immune
system by increasing the activity of natural killer cells.Although they do not fully understand how,scientists
believe that it’s the polysaccharide content of the mushrooms that is responsible for their immune-boosting
Button mushrooms protect the body from various cancer cell lines.In June 2010,the department of plant
pathology at Penn State released a report stating that button mushrooms have been found effective at
treating breast,colon and prostate cancers.According to a study in the December 2006 issue of”Cancer
Research”eating one1/2cup of button mushrooms a day can stop the growth of breast cancer tumors.healthy
woman may eat less than 1/2 cup to greatly reduce the risk of developing breast cancer.
Button mushrooms contribute to the recommended daily intake of several vitamins and minerals.The USDA
reports that mushrooms contain high amounts of copper,which is needed to produce blood cells&maintain
heart health.Additional nutrients are vitamins C,D and B;and the minerals selenium,iron,magnesium
phosphorous,potassium and zinc.When cooked,most of the nutrient content of mushrooms remains the
same,while some nutrients lose between 5 and 20 percent of their value.
Diabetes and blood sugar benefit
The mushroom Agaricus Blazei in combination with metformin and gliclazide improves insulin resistance in
type 2 diabetes:a randomized,double-blinded,and placebo-controlled clinical trial.JAlternative Complement
Med.2007.Of a population of 536 registered diabetes patients with72 subjects(1)aged between20 and75years
(2)being Chinese,(3)having type 2 diabetes for more than 1 year,and(4)having been taking gliclazide and
metformin for more than 6 month were enrolled in this study.The enrolled patients were randomly assigned
to either receiving supplement of Agaricus blazei extract or placebo(cellulose)1500 mg daily for12 weeks
The mushroom extract improves insulin resistance among subjects with type 2 diabetes.The increase in
adiponectin concentration might be the mechanism that brings the beneficial effect.
