What is Maitake Mushrooms Extract?
Maitake Mushrooms Extract is a nutrient-rich mushroom which grows on oak and maple trees in parts of Japan and North America. The mushroom is highly-prized in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and it has been ingested for its health benefits for over 2000 years. From a TCM standpoint, some of the health compounds in maitake mushroom are believed to help to support immune-health, reduce inflammation, and increase vitality.

Maitake is a choice edible that only recently has been utilized for its medicinal properties. Today it is extensively cultivated on sawdust substrates.During the 1990’s Japanese scientists led by Dr. Hiroki Nanba carried out extensive research demonstrating the activity of Maitake beta-glucans as immune system potentiators. Their research identified and commercialized a concentrated beta-glucan called D-fraction or MT-1. This fraction has a ratio of beta-glucan to protein of 7:3.

Maitake Mushroom Powder Benefits:
1. Balances Blood Sugar
Sustaining high levels of blood sugar in your blood can bring some serious consequences when it comes to your health. Not only can high blood sugar lead to the development of diabetes, but it can also cause side effects like headaches, increased thirst, blurred vision and weight loss. Long term, diabetes symptoms can become even more serious, ranging from nerve damage to kidney problems.
When consumed as part of a healthy, well-rounded diet, maitake mushrooms extract may help stabilize blood sugar levels to sidestep these negative symptoms. One animal model conducted by the Department of Food Science and Nutrition at Nishikyushu University’s Faculty of Home Economics in Japan showed that administering maitake extract powder to diabetic rats improved glucose tolerance and blood sugar levels. Another animal study had similar findings, reporting that the fruit of the maitake mushroom possesses powerful anti-diabetic properties in diabetic mice.
2. May Kill Cancer Cells
In recent years, several promising studies have researched the potential connection between the maitake mushroom and cancer. Although research is still limited to animal models and in vitro studies, maitake mushrooms may contain powerful cancer-fighting properties that make them a worthy addition to any diet.
One animal model published in the International Journal of Cancer showed that administering an extract derived from the maitake extract powder to mice helped effectively block tumor growth. Similarly, a 2013 in vitro study reported that maitake mushrooms extract could be useful in suppressing the growth of breast cancer cells.
3. Lowers Cholesterol Levels
Keeping your cholesterol levels in check is absolutely essential when it comes to maintaining a healthy heart. Cholesterol can build up inside the arteries and cause them to harden and narrow, blocking blood flow and forcing your heart to work harder to pump blood throughout the body.
Although more research is needed, some studies suggest that maitake mushrooms could help naturally lower cholesterol levels to keep your heart healthy. An animal model published in the Journal of Oleo Science, for example, found that supplementation with maitake mushrooms was effective in reducing cholesterol levels in mice.
4. Boosts Immune Function
The health of your immune system is vital to overall health; it acts as a natural defense system for your body and helps fights off foreign invaders to protect your body against injury and infection.
Adding a serving or two of maitake mushrooms extract to your diet may help boost your immune system to ward off disease. According to an in vitro study published in the Annals of Translational Medicine, maitake mushrooms were effective in stimulating an immune response and were even stronger when paired with shiitake mushrooms. In fact, the researchers out of the University of Louisville's Department of Pathology concluded, “Short-term oral application of natural immunomodulating glucans from Maitake and Shiitake mushrooms strongly stimulated both the cellular and humoral branch of immune reactions.”
5. Promotes Fertility
Polycystic ovarian syndrome, also known as PCOS, is a condition caused by an overproduction of male hormones by the ovaries, resulting in small cysts on the ovaries and symptoms like acne, weight gain and infertility.
Some research suggests that maitake extract powder may be therapeutic against PCOS and could help combat common issues like infertility. A 2010 study conducted at the J.T. Chen Clinic’s Department of Gynecology in Tokyo, for example, found that maitake extract was able to induce ovulation for 77 percent of participants with PCOS and was nearly as effective as some of the conventional medications used for treatment.
6. Reduces Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is an incredibly common health condition that is estimated to affect a whopping 34 percent of U.S. adults. It occurs when the force of the blood through the arteries is too high, placing excess strain on the heart muscle and causing it to weaken.
