The Agaricus mushroom in his earthly saprobes, and have caps that are not brightly colored. At maturity the gills are free or nearly free from the tribe, and are brown to chocolate brown. The stem breaks nicely from the shell. Agaricus species have a partial veil that often forms a ring on the stem.
The spore print is dark brown.
Identification of Agaricus species range from relatively simple to very difficult. Characters include bruising reactions of the cap, stem, and meat - and smells and, occasionally, microscopic features. Rub the rim of a cap Agaricus repeatedly in order to assess whether the yellow bruise or not - and certainly at the base of the stem rubbing, as well. In some species the meat in the stem base yellow when cut. Agaricus fragrances are especially frustrating for me because I am apparently "smell blind" when it comes to one of the "typical" Agaricus fragrances: the "phenolic" or "library paste" smell of some species. Other species smell like almonds (my sniffer record this fine fragrance), or a non-distinctive odors. Grind the meat in the base of the stem to assess Agaricus smells.
Agaricus is a flawed documented sex in North America, and there is no authoritative modern treatise on sex over the entire continent. DNA tests are ongoing (see resources list below) and begin to picture into view - but a substantial amount of the collection and research needs to be done (mycologists and amateur mushroom clubs to major contributions in this regard see explosive growth in the era of DNA: Now comes the fun part for details). For the moment, in any case, the common species may be regarded as preliminary "species groups", while we await further research.

Immune Benefactor: -
Of the wealth of fungi that provide protective properties to human health if ingested, the traditional medicinal mushroom discovered in Brazil.
  • Agaricus Blazei Murill - has an affinity for the feeding of the immune system. It contains a high concentration of beta-glucans, a type of polysaccharide. Researchers have shown that beta-glucans enhance the vitality and activity of natural killer immune cells.
    In one study researchers examined the efficacy of the Mushroom Agaricus Blazei (group H) on the cytokine-inducing activity on human peripheral mononuclear cells, and found that the mushroom extract induced cytokine IL-12 expression, cytokine IL-12 plays an important role in regulating cellular immune responses. In addition, the researchers found that the fungus stimulated natural killer cell activity in the spleen.
  • In some cases this Murilll Mushroom Agaricus Blazei be used as a complementary companion for those who get vaccinated for disease. For example, a recent study looks at the combined efficacy of DNA vaccine and Agaricus extract to mice with foot and mouth disease, has shown that immune responses and efficacy of the vaccine may increase. Specifically, the study authors, the mice were in the FMD virus DNA vaccine with the Agaricus extract showed a significant increase in the FMD virus-specific antibody response and T-cell proliferation, compared with the group receiving the receive vaccine.
  • Further in Japan, according to a Japanese researcher, Agaricus Blazei Murill is the most popular product, and it was taken by many cancer patients. This means that an interdependent relationship between the immune status and cancer development.
  • A study recently demonstrated that Agaricus Blazei Murill mushroomM has a potent anti-angiogenic phytochemical, sodium pyroglutamate, which was determined to a triple play of actions to exercise - immune-modulating, anti-tumor and anti-metastatic -- in tumor-bearing mice. The researchers have previously shown that Agaricus phytochemical, ergosterol, inhibited new blood vessel growth (neovascularization) within tumors that tumors to maintain and grow.
  • Especially the mushroom Agaricus Blazei Murill is examined in many stages of cancer. A study sought to determine how the consumption of this nutraceutical may affect the quality of life and immune status in chemotherapy patients, especially women with endometrial, cervical and ovarian cancers.
  • The researchers observed significantly higher NK cell activity after co-treatment with Agaricus and carboplatin plus VP16 or with Taxol and carboplatin agaricus, than with either pharmaceutical combination without agaricus.
  • At the 43rd Annual Meeting of Japan Society of Clinical Oncology held in October 2005, researchers Higashi et al, presented the results of clinical studies that used Atlas World's Ekismate immune support supplement with Agaricus Blazei Murill in case of pain in cases of breast cancer. The findings of the researchers suggest that the Agaricus extract water reduces pain associated with breast cancer and is a good alternative to pharmaceuticals that impose side effects.
  • The researchers also noted the anti-tumor effect of the mushroom extract, as demonstrated by tumor markers and image diagnosis.
  • This means that the Agaricus Blazei Murilll mushrooml a positive addition, for customers who are concerned about maintaining a healthy immune status.
