Traditional Uses, Phytochemistry andBiological Activities of Agaricus blazei murrill: A Comprehensive Review

Agaricus blazei murrill is an important medicinal and edible mushroom species, widely cultivated in Japan and native to Brazil. Different in vivo and in vitro studies describe its ant mutagenic and immunomodulatory properties however, it is not still clear that what chemical substances and biological pathways are responsible for these properties. It is assumed that the polysaccharides phytocomplex may be responsible for the antitumor and immunostimulant activities, through an opsonizing biochemical pathway. A. blazei is used to cure dermatitis, hepatitis, diabetes, therosclerosis, hyperlipidemia, and cancer in traditional medicine. The present review provides a comprehensive review on traditional, phytochemical and pharmacological aspects of A. blazei.
