Maitake Mushroom Powder
The Maitake mushroom (“dancing mushroom” in Japanese) offers a wealth of health benefits, including immune system support, powerful anti-tumour properties, digestive support, blood sugar and blood pressure balance, and nervous system support.
Most of the Maitake’s health benefits seem to come from one main source. They contain beta-glucan, a polysaccharide compound thought to nourish the immune system by activating effector cells like macrophages, natural killer cells, and T cells. In addition to their role in general immunity, these types of antibodies also act against abnormal cells. The polysaccharide is also thought to be the source of the mushroom’s ability to possibly support healthy blood sugar levels.
