Anti-inflammatory Effect of Agaricus Blazei Murill
When the average person hears the word “inflammation” the scope of understanding is often limited to things like arthritis, an infected wound, or perhaps inflamed bronchial tubes. However, recent research has shown that a protein connected with inflammation seems to have a hand in the development of coronary heart disease. Other studies have revealed, chronic inflammation may also play a key role in cancer, autoimmune diseases, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and even aging skin. While that may sound like bad news, the good news is the natural anti-inflammatory effect of Agaricus Blazei Murill.
To comprehend the anti-inflammatory benefit of Agaricus Blazei Murill, it helps to understand inflammation and why it occurs. Inflammation is part of our body’s defense system; it’s a reaction to infection, an irritation, or an injury. It localizes and destroys irritants, and repairs the surrounding tissue. It’s all part of the natural healing process. Chronic inflammation, on the other hand, is disease. According to Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D., “Chronic inflammation may be the root of all degenerative disease.” The problem is cytokines (white blood cells). They do a great job in protecting our bodies, but in the case of chronic inflammation they don’t stop their attacks and start to kill cells our bodies need. For instance, inflammation in the pancreas can lead to diabetes, and inflammation of the joint can destroy cartilage resulting in arthritis.
Studies on Anti-inflammatory Effect of Agaricus Blazei
Once you understand inflammation, the studies on the anti-inflammatory effect of Agaricus Blazei Murill make more sense. While more research needs to be done, current results are promising.
One study researched the medicinal effect of the mushroom Agaricus Blazei Murill on tumor, infection, allergy, and inflammation. Along with other findings, researchers concluded that the immunomodulating polysaccharides and beta glucans present in mushroom Agaricus Blazei have an “anti-inflammatory effect in inflammatory bowel disease patients.”
In a second study that looked at the anti-inflammatory activity of aqueous and alkaline extracts from mushroom Agaricus Blazei Murill, researchers concluded it is possible that Agaricus Blazei extracts can be useful in fighting inflammatory diseases “because of activation of the immune system and its cells induced by the presence of polysaccharides such as beta-glucans.”
The history of the medicinal benefits of the Agaricus Blazei mushroom is centuries old. By comparison, it has only been studied by researchers and scientists for a several decades. During that time a unique variety of the mushroom Agaricus has been produced by crossbreeding spore isolates from two different strains. The resulting Agaricus Blazei hybrid has been developed in the United States, in Sylvan, Pennsylvania and is known as H1X1. This potent hybrid has the polysaccharides present in the mushroom Agaricus Blazei and offers a higher concentration of beta-glucans to bolster the immune system. This may offer even more potential for those hoping to fight off chronic inflammation.
