Mushroom Science Maitake (Full Spectrum)
Mushroom Science Maitake (Full Spectrum), (Grifola frondosa, Japanese: Maitake, Common Name: Hen of the Woods), 90 caps, 300 mg. Dietary Supplement.
Maitake has a long history as a valued mushroom both as food and as medicine in Japan. In Japanese folklore it is known as " Dancing Mushroom" because people would dance with joy when they found it either because it was so healthy and delicious or because it was so valuable. It has been used by the Japanese as an adaptogen and the tea from maitake mushrooms is used to maintain, protect or restore immune health. *
Available for the first time ever in North America from Mushroom Science is all natural full spectrum Maitake extract. Using hot water extraction, as recommended in the clinical research, this powerful 30% beta 1-3, 1-6 glucan extract contains all the beneficial ingredients Maitake has to offer.*
Unlike the standardized supplements, the Maitake beta glucan fractions in Mushroom Science''s full spectrum supplement are left in their naturally occurring mix of amino acids, proteins and minerals. This ensures that nothing is left behind, guaranteeing all the immune benefit that Maitake mushroom has to offer.*
While no references are available from Traditional Chinese texts, Japanese herbal references have Maitake prepared as a decoction/tea (hot water extract). The Active Constituents found in maitake are polysaccharides (1-6, 1-3 linked proteoglycans extracted from the cell walls of the fruit body).*
All of the published research on Maitake and the Maitake Fractions is based on hot water extracts of the fruit bodies.*
