The Agaricus mushroom originated in Brazil and was popularized in Japan in the 1900s. Since then, it’s been growing in popularity. Like many functional mushrooms, agaricus was prized for its medicinal benefits in eastern medicine. Now modern science has yet again backed up what our ancestors already knew – this mushroom packs a punch.
Agaricus mushrooms are rich in beta-glucans that work to modulate the immune system and support our natural defenses.
