Sun Agaric – Himematsutake – Cogumelo do Sol

Sun Agaric, known as the Almond Mushroom, derives its name from its sweet flavour and taste of almonds. It grows in Europe and North America among other areas.     

Its health benefits were first linked to unusual longevity in Brazil's Piedade region. It helps to provide dietary support if you are feeling run down and also helps to support healthy blood sugar levels.


500mg vegetarian capsules / or powder (250 gram tubs)

Agaricus brasiliensis mycelial biomass supplemented with concentrated A. brasiliensis hot-water extract – minimum 30% polysaccharides (beta-glucans / proteoglycans)

The mushroom biomass we use to manufacture MycoNutri Sun Agaric is grown for us in the USA on sterile grain-based substrate and is optimized to maximise substrate conversion and hence mycelial production. 

The biomass contains the full spectrum of active metabolites from the mycelium and young fruiting body of the mushroom, including beta-glucans, other intra- and extra-cellular polysaccharides, phytosterols (including ergosterol – provitamin D2), proteoglycans, proteins and lipids. 

We then blend it with a hot-water extract containing high levels of polysaccharides to reinforce its health-promoting properties with the combined product having a minimum of 30% polysaccharides.

Daily Allowance

Capsules: One to three a day as a food supplement, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Health benefits have been obtained taking 1.5 to 3 grams per day of the polysaccharide extract. 

Powder: Health benefits have been obtained taking up to 3 grams of powdered Snow Fungus per day.
