Maitake (Grifola frondrosa) is a type of medicinal mushroom native to northeastern Japan. Also known as “hen of the woods,” this feathered, frilly mushroom is often consumed as a food and the extract is available in dietary supplement form.
Maitake mushrooms are said to offer a wide range of health benefits. A key component in maitake mushrooms is beta-glucan, a type of polysaccharide, a long molecule of carbohydrates found to affect the immune system.
Maitake is often said to boost immune function and, in turn, fight certain infections.
In addition to beta-glucans, maitake also contains other polysaccharides, arabinoxylanes (on rice-grown mycelium) and ergothioneine, a strong antioxidant. The Chinese and Japanese people believe that mushroom extracts can be used medicinally for their extraordinary properties.
Maitake Mushroom is extracted and processed in line with the ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
A special temperature controlled process is used to perfectly suit the mushroom’s characteristics, ensuring that all the naturally occurring and most valuable components can be captured in the extract in the same proportions as in the original plant, creating a perfect full spectrum extract.
All the tonic herb extract powders are produced to the highest quality using state of the art spray technology that allows the liquid extract to be carefully dehydrated into a micro fine powder that will dissolve back into any liquid or warm water.
They are supplied in dark glass containers and are absolutely free of any additives and fillers, synthetic ingredients, preservatives, flours and other bulking agents, gmo’s, dairy and gluten, and each powder is thoroughly tested for heavy metals, pesticides and other contaminants – a certificate of analysis is available upon request for each herbal extract.
