Agaricus originates from Piedade, which is located in the suburbs of Sao Paulo, Brazil. The climatic conditions in Piedade include temperatures that soar to 35-38 0C during the day and dip to between 20-25 C at night, with the humidity that averages 80%. The place also experiences regular squall toward evening. Agaricus Blazei Murill Mushroom (ABM) thrives only under these conditions, suggesting that its survival is significantly affected by these external conditions. Agaricus blazei Murrill Mushroom - Known as “The Mushroom of the Gods”. A few decades ago, researchers noticed that in the mountain region of Ideate near Sao Paulo, Brazil , a regular part of the local inhabitants’ diet was a mushroom known as "Cogmelo de Deus" or "Mushroom of God". The researchers also noted that the local inhabitants were extraordinarily healthy and had a
very low incidence of disease, which they attributed to this astounding mushroom. The scientific name of the mushroom is Agaricus blazei Murrill, more commonly called the ABM mushroom and sometimes referred to as Agaricus Brasiliennis. So potent is this mushroom that one well-known rainforest herbal manufacturer, uses it as the main ingredients in herbal supplements that have been credited with success against cancer and other diseases around the world.
