Maitake Mushroom Extract Benefits:
1) Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
In women with PCOS, the ovaries produce more male reproductive hormones, which may cause acne, weight gain, and reduced fertility.A product containing the SX-fraction and maitake powder helped induce ovulation and increased the effectiveness of standard treatment (clomiphene citrate) in 80 women with PCOS. When taken alone, the maitake product was less effective than clomiphene.
Patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) have impaired bone marrow function, which reduces their blood cell counts and increases the risk of infection. In 18 MDS patients, maitake extract enhanced the production and activity of neutrophils and monocytes, thus improving their immune response.
In 34 older breast cancer patients, post-treatment supplementation with a Maitake Mushroom Extract boosted some immunity parameters but suppressed others. The authors called for further research on maitake's immune-modulating effects.
Studies in animals and test tubes indicate the potential of maitake polysaccharides to stimulate the bone marrow and increase the activity of white blood cells. A combination with another medicinal mushroom, shiitake, may be even more potent.
The D-fraction (beta-glucan) is primarily responsible for the observed immune-boosting activities.
Maitake mushrooms can help recover the bone marrow and increase the activity of white blood cells, which makes them a potent immuno-stimulant.
3) Anti-Cancer Effects

Potent effects of maitake on the immune system have led scientists to investigate its anti-cancer potential. The US National Cancer Institute has acknowledged the anti-cancer and immune-stimulating properties of this mushroom. Chinese doctors already use D-fraction as a complementary cancer drug.
