Grifola frondosa / Maitake mushroom

Maitake mushrooms contain high levels of bioactive compounds, particularly beta-glucans, which are super beneficial for the immune system. These beta-glucans not only enhance immunity but also have the potential to combat cancer by inhibiting the growth and spread of cancer cells. Studies indicate that the polysaccharides in maitake mushrooms can help regulate blood sugar levels, aiding in the prevention and management of diabetes.
(A polysaccharide is a complex carbohydrate made up of smaller sugar molecules. These sugars stabilize blood pressure, blood sugar, and have an effect on free radicals.)

Consuming maitake mushrooms may lower cholesterol levels, improve artery function, and reduce the risk of heart disease. These mushrooms are also a good source of potassium, a crucial mineral that helps lower blood pressure by reducing sodium levels and relaxing blood vessels.

The gut, or "second brain," houses a complex collection of microorganisms that impact various aspects of health. A balanced gut microbiome is essential for overall well-being, influencing digestion, nutrient absorption, immune function, and mood regulation. Maitake mushrooms support gut health due to their high dietary fiber content that nourishes beneficial gut bacteria.

Both traditional healers and modern herbalists recognize maitake mushrooms as an adaptagenic. (To be considered adaptogenic, mushrooms need to meet the following criteria: They must be nontoxic and safe to consume, increase the body’s ability to resist biological, environmental and chemical stressors & work to maintain internal stability while the body adjusts to stressful external conditions.)

If you find the taste of tincture unappealing, try adding 1-2 servings to your soup, tea or other liquid carrier.

Maitake doesn’t seem to have an anti-inflammatory action. Thus those with autoimmune diseases and women who are pregnant should not take it.
