Maitake is one of the most popular medicinal mushrooms in Japan, but has very little recorded use in Traditional Chinese Medicine. All of the scientific research has focused on using Maitake extracts to support immune health.*
Our full spectrum Maitake extract delivers all the immune benefits Maitake has to offer. Leaving the Maitake fractions in their naturally occurring mix of beta glucans, minerals and amino acids ensures that all the potential health benefits are provided.*
Maitake, like all of the other medicinal mushrooms, must be prepared as a hot water extract in order to be effective for supporting immune health.*
Maitake is also a choice edible mushroom and is common in the hardwood forests of the Northeastern United States. Maitake does not grow in the Pacific Northwest.
