What is Maitake Mushroom?
Maitake, also known as grifola frondosa or hen of the woods, is an highly prized medicinal mushroom which grows wild on oak trees in Japan and North America. In Japan, maitake means the dancing mushroom, as legend has it that those who found it in the wild would literally jump for joy. In fact, maitake mushrooms were once worth their weight in silver during medieval times.
Maitake mushrooms are still sought after today, as many food-lovers find the taste to be exceptional for culinary purposes, while health-conscious users rave about their nutritional properties. We select only the highest quality maitake mushrooms and carefully concentrate them into a 10:1 extract powder. Each serving is pure and potent, which enables you to receive all of the beneficial components of maitake mushrooms in just under a teaspoon.
What Are The Health Benefits Of Maitake Mushrooms?
Like many other medicinal mushrooms, maitake has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2,000 years as they are believed to help strengthen the immune system, increase vitality and balance blood sugar levels. Science credits this to the presence of the high levels of beta-glucan which plays a vital role in building immunity and helping to prevent free radical damage.
Maitake mushrooms contain polysaccharides, which have been found to help stimulate the body's own natural ability to fight certain illness without affecting healthy cells. Maitake mushrooms are also rich in vitamins, minerals, polysaccharides and amino acids.
