The Magic of Agarikon

Agarikon (Laricifomes officinalis) is one of the oldest mushrooms known; some of them are a hundred years old!

These beehive-shaped mushrooms are a bit rare. They are mostly found in Europe and parts of North America. Their use for their healing ability dates to around 2000 years ago.

Interestingly, agarikon had their use for spiritual purposes too; they were used as spirit catchers and grave guardians.

This ancient mystical mushroom, Agarikon  was known in ancient Greece as ‘elixirium ad longam vitam’, the ‘elixir of long life’.

Agarikon is now extremely rare, surviving in the old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest. Fungi Perfecti (Paul Stamets Business) has focused on building an extensive culture library to preserve this species.

Host Defense® Agarikon Capsules use activated, freeze-dried, Certified Organic mycelium, with a full spectrum of constituents: polysaccharides (beta glucans, arabinoxylane, glucose, xylose, galactose and mannose), glycoproteins, ergosterols, triterpenoids and other myco-nutrients, which are essential for Supporting Natural Immunity.*

These mushrooms contain the following useful compounds along with many other nutrients:

  • Polysaccharide including Beta-D-Glucans
  • Agaric Acid, an anti-inflammatory substance

The following are their health benefits

  • Treat TB – The mushrooms possess anti-tuberculosis compounds. They have been used to treat TB since ancient times.
  • Fight Flu and infections – They have anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. So, they help heal viral problems like flu and colds and bacterial and fungal infections caused by E-coli and Candida.
  • Good for the gut – Agarikon mushrooms maintain the health of the GI tract.
  • Fight inflammation and pain – They help with inflammation and pain in diseases like arthritis, lumbago, and kidney inflammation.
  • Boost immune system – Like other mushrooms, these are good for the immune system.
