Chemical constituents
Astraodorol, Psilocybin, Lectin, adustin, ribonuclease, nicotine, 2-hydroxy-4-methoxy-6-methylbenzoic acid, orsellinic acid, melleolide, ergosterol, genistein, daidzein, daucosterol, genistin, uracil and D-mannitol(a).
Prostate cancer is defined as a condition in which the cells of prostate has become cancerous, causing abnormal cell growth which spread to the distant parts of the body. Most prostate cancers are slow growing and enlarged prostate and prostate cancer may be detected during the Physical (rectum) exams(1).
In athymic mice, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), found in white button mushroom extract and its major component showed to inhibit proliferation in the prostate cancer cell lines in vitro within 72 hours and to decrease the prostate tumor size of DU145 and PC3(2). But according to the study by University of Western Sydney, Agaricus bisporus white button mushroom (WBM), in a tetrazolium dye [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide]-based assay, it showed a little effect on the growth of human colon, prostate, gastric cancer, and murine Sarcoma 180 cells but breast cancer cell line MCF-7(3). Button mushrooms with a rich source of vitamin D2 that when consumed can increase and maintain blood levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D in a healthy range(4) of that may lead to reduced risk of prostate cancer(5).
