The Dancing Mushroom
Maitake mushroom, also known as "Hen of the Woods", is native to East Asia and North America. Revered for its large, fan-shaped, overlapping clusters, this mushroom is not only a culinary delight but also has been used traditionally in herbal medicine. Rich in beta-glucans, Maitake is known for its immune system modulating properties.
Organically grown and extracted to increase the bioavailability of the beneficial compounds.
Primary Maitake Mushroom Medicinal Benefits: Helps to maintain healthy blood pressure and supports immune function
Maitake mushrooms support immune function by stimulating the immune system’s lymphocytes, natural killer cells, monocytes, and T-helper cells.
Historical Uses of Maitake Medicinal Mushrooms
Maitake, Grifola frondosa is commonly known as Hen of the Woods or the Dancing Mushroom. It is plentiful in the deciduous forests of North America and Japan. It is an edible mushroom with an earthy flavour. Traditional Chinese Medicine has used this mushroom for its support of the spleen, and for benefiting qi. The mushroom (fruiting body) contains polysaccharides such as beta-glucans, which have been linked to healthy cell growth and turnover*.
Maitake became quite famous in the 1990's after Dr. Hiroaki Nanba, a pharmacologist at Kobe Pharmaceutical University in Japan, began isolating and testing different polysaccharide fractions from Maitake. Many of these fractions were quite potent immunomodulating agents.
Best Ways to Include Maitake Mushrooms in Your Daily Life
The Maitake we use in our 5 Defenders Mushroom Blend is made from ONLY the mushroom (fruiting body), so you can be assured that you are getting the full potency this mushroom can offer for your health. We recommend taking two capsules of our mushroom supplements a day over at least a 3-month period to feel the full beneficial effect.
