Inspire Healthcare is pleased to announce that we’ve teamed up with Toei Shinyaku, a Japanese manufacturer specialising in the Agaricus KA21 strain of the Agaricus blazei mushroom, to unveil a new supplement ‘King Agaricus 100’ specifically formulated to boost immunity, and as a complement in cancer management.

The Agaricus blazei mushroom species has traditionally been used to treat a range of common diseases. The KA21 strain has been the subject of 32 international research studies that support its unique benefits, and has been shown to be effective in boosting immunity, and is used as an adjunct to cancer management. Specifically, some of these studies have demonstrated that the KA21 strain is capable of reducing the side effects of chemotherapy, protecting the liver and heart, managing diabetes and hypertension, and improving the effects of fatty liver disease.

“Seeing the potential of the Agaricus blazei KA21 strain, we worked closely with Toei Shinyaku to harness its benefits in bringing this all-natural health supplement to Singapore. Like its name suggests, King Agaricus 100 is made entirely from the KA21 strain without any additives. We want to provide Singaporeans with an option that may help support their overall health and wellbeing, while enhancing the quality of life,” said our CEO Jasmine Goh.

“Agaricus blazei KA21 contains higher levels of beta glucan and Vitamin D than regular strains, with also significantly higher levels of minerals such as calcium, iron, selenium, copper, and B1 vitamins. This unique combination of nutrients can improve overall health and boost the immune system, protecting against chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension, and to be used as a complement in cancer management,” said Akitomo Motoi, President of Toei Shinyaku.

Cancer continues to be the top cause of death in Singapore, the healthcare industry in the country has been actively working to combat this deadly disease through development of various high-tech advancements. The launch of King Agaricus 100 as an all-natural health supplement with scientifically-proven studies, is set to be both an effective complement to established cancer treatments and also a breakthrough in the fields of natural treatments and holistic medicine.
