Agaricus blazei murrill (ABM)
Almond mushroom – Hardly any other mushroom stabilises the immune system as effectively as Agaricus blazei murrill.
Agaricus blazei murrill (ABM) regulates the entire immune system - especially for cancer and autoimmune diseases. This is because ABM is the medicinal mushroom with the highest concentration of effective immune modulators.
ABM contains numerous long-chain polysaccharides, the ß-glucanes. Their complex chemical structure leads to an equally complex effectivity. Among other things, they stimulate a weak immune system and prevent or regulate immune overreactions.
More informations about ABM
This effectiveness has in particular been proven for abdominal, intestinal, lung, pancreas, prostatic and liver cancer and for brain tumours.
ABM’s active ingredients have cytotoxic effects on cancer cells, can initiate apoptosis of neoplastic cells and suppress neoangiogenesis.
If blood formation capacities are impeded after chemo or radiation therapies, ABM supports bone marrow regeneration. This may help counteract exhaustion caused by erythrocyte deficiencies or ongoing immunodeficiency caused by leucocyte loss. Furthermore, Agaricus blazei murrill is able to reduce splenic swellings that occur by leukaemia or lymphomas. This helps to significantly improve the general condition of cancer patients.
"After undergoing 80 chemotherapies, two new tumours were detected in my body. According to orthodox medicine, I was beyond recovery. Then I heard of the mushrooms’ curative properties and clutched the last straw. Today, I am tumour-free and cured from cancer". H.P.
Of all mushrooms analysed so far, ABM has the highest concentration of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase and tyrosinase. These enzymes are also found in our organism where unfold strong antioxidant properties. ABM thus helps reducing oxidative stress and free radicals.
Additionally, ABM supports the splenic blood-purifying and defence functions. Likewise, it has a protecting effect on the liver.
Positive experiences have also been reported for fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and rheumatism. ABM can also positively affect autoimmune diseases of the thyroid gland and pancreas (type I diabetes).
Effective applications verified by studies
Activation of tumoral defence: increased production of immunoglobulin M, which later transforms into immunoglobulin G.
Proliferation and differentiation of macrophages and monocytes, which activates the T-cells that use messengers (cytokine IL-6) to stimulate the ß-cells to increased antibody-production.
