Some of these mushrooms produce substances with potential medicinal effects, they fall into the category of medicinal mushrooms.

One such medicinal mushroom is Agaricus Blazei Murrill, or God's Mushroom, as it is also called - it originates from Brazil (where it is called Cogumelo do sol) but is mainly cultivated in Japan (where it is known as Himematsutake, Agarikusutake or Kawarihiratake) and China (where it is called Ji Song Rong).


Health benefits of the mushroom Agaricus Blazei Murrill

1. Activates the immune system
One of the incredible benefits of the God mushroom is that it activates the body's natural defenses by stimulating the immune system.

Agaricus Blazei Murrill has been used in traditional medicine to address the formation of many infectious diseases, most likely by defeating the infectious strains.

A very encouraging study comes from China, where researchers concluded that Agaricus Blazei extract administered to mice with leukemia stimulated their immune system, helping them fight the disease. Confirming the resistance of this mushroom to inflammation, another study showed that Agaricus Blazei extract promotes a normal, healthy immune response, after just 12 days of administration.

The immune system activation of the Agaricus Blazei mushroom can also be useful for systemic redness and swelling.

2. It helps to lose weight
The Center National de la Recherche Scientifique examined the effects of Agaricus Blazei Murrill extract on obese mice. It could be observed that, when mice were given a diet rich in fats and an extract from God's Mushroom, the latter offered a protective effect against weight gain.

Moreover, the mice that were given Agaricus Blazei supplements expended more energy, moving more – they burned more calories, hence the possible suppression of weight gain.

3. It improves liver function and is an adjuvant in diabetes
The Department of Medicine at the Chinese Taipei Hospital participated in a 1-year study to observe the effects of the Agaricus Blazei Murrill mushroom on hepatitis B.

The observations suggest that, indeed, the extract of Agaricus Blazei offers a benefit for patients with hepatitis B in terms of the normalization of liver function. In addition, clinical trials have shown that supplementation with the extract of the God's Mushroom can improve insulin resistance in some people with diabetes and can help ameliorate damage caused by oxidative stress.

According to a study published in 2007 in the Journal of Alternative Medicine and Complementary Medicine, Agaricus Blazei contributed to reducing blood sugar levels and lowering cholesterol. For this study, 72 patients with type 2 diabetes were chosen, half of them received supplements with the Mushroom of God, and the other half received supplements with a placebo effect, every day, for 12 weeks.

By the end of the study, members of the Agaricus group showed significantly greater improvements in insulin resistance compared to those in the placebo group.

5. It is an adjunct in cancer treatments
Several studies indicate that Agaricus Blazei Murrill can help fight cancer cells.

For example, in a 2017 study published in BioMed Research International, tests on cancer cells showed that God's Mushroom extract may have anti-tumor properties.

In a previous study, from 2015, of the same publication, it was found that Agaricus Blazei extract influenced the immune response of the body in adults with multiple myeloma, but there were no significant differences in the response to treatment, survival or the time required for a new treatment . .

6. Protects and heals the skin
The content of beta-glucan together with other agents responsible for accelerating the continuous healing process of Agaricus Blazei allow them to offer special results regarding the healing of rashes, freckles, damaged skin, wrinkles and acne.
