Agaricus bisporus—known variously as the common mushroom, button
mushroom, white mushroom, table mushroom, portobello mushroom,
crimini mushroom, Swiss Brown mushrooms, also known as Cremini,
Italian Brown, Italian mushroom, Roman Brown mushrooms, or
cultivated mushroom —is an edible basidiomycete mushroom native to
grasslands in Europe and North America. A. bisporus is cultivated
in more than 70 countries, in China, it is cultivated widely.
Agaricus bisporus contains a high level of beta
glucans(Polysaccharides), compounds known for stimulating the
Beta-glucan is found in a wide variety of mushroom, such as Agricus
blazei, Maitake, Reshi, Shitak, and other foods. The Agaricus
bisporus Powder (Beta-glucan) used in dietary supplements is the
powder the whole mushroom.
Anti- Breast cancer
Enhance immune System
The common mushroom contains high amounts of Vitamin D(especially
when UV-irradiated) and B vitamins.It also contains sodium,
potassium, and phosphorus.Agaricus bisporus also contains
conjugated linoleic acid and antioxidants.
A clinical trial is scheduled to take place at the City of Hope
National Medical Center due to earlier research indicating that the
common mushroom can inhibit aromatase, and therefore may be able to
lower estrogen levels in the human body, which might reduce breast
cancer susceptibility. In 2009, a case control study of over 2000
women, correlated a large decrease of breast cancer incidence in
women who consumed mushrooms. Women in the study who consumed fresh
mushrooms daily, were 64% less likely to develop breast cancer,
while those that combined a mushroom diet with regular green tea
consumption, reduced their risk of breast cancer by nearly 90%.
The table mushroom has also been shown to possess possible immune
system enhancing properties. An in vitro study demonstrated the
mushroom enhanced dendritic cell function.
Research at the Jikei University School of Medicine found that
fresh A. bisporus contains small amounts of carcinogenic hydrazine
derivatives, including agaritine and gyromitrin.However, this
research also noted when cooked, these compounds were reduced
Agaricus bisporus Powder is safe for food supplements and health
The typical dose is 1000-3000mg per day (usually in 2-3
