ABM been traditionally used as a health food supplement for the prevention of cancer, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, arteriosclerosis and chronic hepatitis.
In recent years, ABM is used in Japan as an adjuvant in cancer chemotherapy
Oriveda's ABM is not only the most potent Agaricus blazei extract commercially available but also the only fully certified extract worldwide, with guaranteed levels of the main bioactive ingredients.

For our extract we guarantee the percentage of bioactive beta-glucan and polyphenols (anti-oxidants). We no longer specify polysaccharides because this is a very broad term.
Beta-glucan is a type of polysaccharide but not all polysaccharide is beta-glucan. Unscrupulous or ignorant vendors spike their products with fillers such as malto-dextrin (one of the most commonly used fillers) or -if it is a biomass product- it might contain a high percentage of (unwanted) starch. Starch are also polysaccharides, but have no therapeutic potential. Check the supplement facts label to find out what is in the product (and what is not - like, low percentages of active ingredients are not listed (!) for marketing reasons).
The bioavailability of Oriveda supplements is exceptionally high because this is an extracted product. Research found that the immunological potential of extracted mushrooms are up to 10 times higher when compared against non-extracted powders. Contamination is way below the official thresholds - Oriveda tests for 20 trace metals/minerals (including heavy metals and three radio-active isotopes).
Extracted using hot water followed by alcohol precipitation - the main bioactives are water-solubles with a high molecular weight according to research. Alcohol precipitation is a purification process. It removes therapeutically useless matter and low molecular weight compounds and thus increases the concentration of bioactives in the final product. The final product contains no alcohol.
Below are the main subjects of Agaricus blazei Murrill (ABM) research.
• The immune-modulating and cholesterol-balancing potential of ABM
• The anti-inflammatory, anti-viral potential
• The effect on cholesterol-levels and related cardiovascular effects
• Its potential as an anti-cancer adjuvant
• ABM's liver-protective potential
• ABM's anti-allergic potential
• ABM inhibiting the enzyme aromatase, which is associated with the development of breast cancer.
