Provita Nutrition is one of the few companies offering a concentrated powder extract from Agaricus Blazei Murill.
In some parts of the world, Agaricus is known as “God’s Mushroom”.
Some so-called Agaricus therapeutic mushrooms are sold on the market with names such as Agaricus Milena or Agaricus Bisporus.
Do not consume products that specify Agaricus Milena. It’s not a therapeutic fungus and it might not even be edible.
As for Agaricus Bisporus, it is just a white, edible fungus but without therapeutic effects.
The only therapeutic fungus is Agaricus Blazei Murill (Brasiliera) – the correct scientific name is Agaricus Subrufescens.
Agaricus Blazei Muril, originating from Brazil, contains a particular functional group of polysaccharides known as Beta Glucans.
Beta Glucans boost the immune system by strongly activating the macrophages. Studies have demonstrated the benefits of beta glucans not only through positive action on the macrophages, but also by stimulating B-cells, natural killer cells and T-suppressor cells.
In addition, beta glucan is a very good antioxidant and anti-free radicals. Beta glucan is an excellent adjuvant in cancer treatment. Beta glucan also helps to lower cholesterol.
On their visit to Brazil, in the ’70s, two American researchers from the Pennsylvania State University, discovered that the population living in a particular area of the country were in excellent health, many of which lived to be over 100 years old.
Their secret? Very simple. They consumed Agaricus Blazei Murill mushrooms! Shortly after, Agaricus became one of the accepted therapies used in herbal and alternative medicine.
Agaricus Blazei Murill energizes the body at the cellular level helping him fight against invasive and degenerative diseases. Good results were observed in diseases of the nervous system in cases of multiple sclerosis and epilepsy.
In the fight against cancer Agaricus Blazei Murill may be associated with other therapeutic mushrooms, such as Reishi mushroom Ganoderma 5000, Maitake, and Shiitake.
By combineing in well defined proportions (by type of cancer) can make a very effective anti-cancer cocktail.
