Harvest Table Boosters Maitake Mushroom 250g
Years ago in Japan, the Maitake had monetary value and was worth its weight in silver. Historically, Maitake has been used as a tonic and adaptogen. It was used as a food to help promote wellness and vitality. The medicinal properties of the Maitake mushroom have been studied since the mid-1980s. Clinical research of Maitake has increased dramatically over the past several years. Studies have shown Maitake qualities to support a healthy immune system response. In 1992, Maitake’s antiviral activity was confirmed by the National Cancer Institute and the Japan Institute of Health. In addition, the Maitake mushroom has been the subject of research against HIV. This mushroom contains polysaccharides which are among the most powerful study to date. When taken orally, it is easily absorbed. The Maitake mushroom is a delicious, soft-fleshed polypore with excellent nutritional properties. It’s may support healthy insulin and lipid levels in plasma, demonstrating a change similar to blood glucose when eaten. Many studies are continuing on Maitake Mushrooms.
Most of the maitake’s health benefits 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 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.
On top of all that, maitakes are also a natural source of minerals like potassium, calcium and magnesium, B vitamins, and amino acids. With all that and the fact that they taste great, too, it’s more than worth checking out this exotic fungal gem.
