More than just a fungus, high quality medicinal mushrooms have a host of therapeutic properties. Research has shown Agaricus blazei is a potent medicinal mushroom with strong anti-viral and immune-supporting properties, and also an excellent source of polysaccharides, particularly beta-glucans, which reduce inflammation by supporting a normal immune response in the body. In addition to stimulating immune cells, which helps fight against diseases and infections, research has shown it enhances the Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) which regulates immune cells (whereas dysfunction of TNF has been linked to increased incidence of health concerns such as Alzheimer's disease, cancer, and depression).
