Petra Remsing – veterinary practitioner

Agaricus bisporus, better known as mushroom, is one of the most important and popular edible mushrooms in the whole world. For good reason, after all, it is extremely tasty and aromatic. Its nutritional plus points are also remarkable, because it contains a variety of valuable vital substances. In addition, its richness in medicinally active ingredients.

Particularly noteworthy are its lectins, also known by the abbreviation ABL for Agaricus bisporus lectins. The mushroom owes both its anticancer and antiviral effects to the lectins. In particular, they inhibit the enzyme “reverse transcriptase”. This enzyme is responsible for the replication of retroviruses, which include, for example, the Feline Leukemia Virus. In addition, the lectins of Agaricus bisporus have a blood sugar-lowering effect and show an anti-tumor effect on colon cancer and skin cancer cells.

Tumor therapy

Another very interesting ingredient of Agaricus bisporus is its conjugated linoleic acids (CLA), which can exert an inhibitory effect on the aromatase enzyme. Therefore, the mushroom is an important medicinal mushroom especially in the therapy of hormone-dependent tumors. Likewise, it is also very suitable for the treatment of prostate enlargement.

In addition to its antiviral and anti-tumor powers, Agaricus bisporus has very good antibacterial activity against various bacteria. These include E. coli, streptococci or Helicobacter pylori, among others. Furthermore, it promotes the so important colonization of the intestinal mucosa with probiotic bacteria. This is especially useful after antibiotic therapy or worming.

In addition, Agaricus bisporus exerts a protective effect on the kidneys and can stabilize creatinine levels.
