The Japanese started researching Agaricus Blazei Murrill (ABM) in the late 1960s and began isolating active components soon afterwards. No other medicinal mushroom has such a high percentage of polysaccharides – the Oriveda extracts e.g. contain between 60-70% of polysaccharides, of which over 60% are pure (1>3)(1>6)Beta-D-Glucans.
Science has been researching these mushrooms for decades. Below are the main subjects of Agaricus blazei Murrill (ABM) research.
For an extensive background click here ( page opens in new window ).
Scientific research uses in general extracted, highly purified mushroom powder to investigate the therapeutic potential of mushrooms.
ORIVeDA's powdered extracts are comparable in both composition and quality, so the research results you read about you can also expect from our extracts.

For our extract we guarantee the percentage of bioactive beta-glucan and polyphenols (anti-oxidants). We no longer specify polysaccharides because this is a very broad term.
Beta-glucan is a type of polysaccharide but not all polysaccharide is beta-glucan. Unscrupulous or ignorant vendors spike their products with e.g. malto-dextrin (a commonly used filler) or -if it is a biomass product- it might contain a high percentage of useless starch. These are also polysaccharides, but have no therapeutic potential. Check the supplement facts label to find out what is in the product (and what is not - like, low percentages of active ingredients are not listed (!) for marketing reasons).
The bioavailability of Oriveda supplements is perfect because this is an extracted product. Research found that the immunological potential of extracted mushrooms are up to 10 times higher when compared against non-extracted powders. Contamination is way below the official thresholds - Oriveda tests for 20 trace metals/minerals (including heavy metals and three radio-active isotopes).
The most recent Certificates of Analysis are available here so you can verify our quality claims.
Extracted using hot water followed by alcohol precipitation - the main bioactives are water-solubles with a high molecular weight according to research. Alcohol precipitation is a purification process. It removes useless matter and low molecular weight compounds and thus increases the concentration of bioactives in the final product. The final product contains no alcohol.
