Benefits of Maitake Mushroom Extract
- Improve Immune System Function
- Anti-tumor abilities
- Blood sugar control
- Treats High blood pressure
- alleviates inflammation
Maitake has been used in traditional medicine in China and Japan for centuries as an immune stimulant. Modern analytical methods have determined that it is in fact able to stimulate both the innate and adaptive immune system, this effect is even more pronounced in cancer patients and points to Maitake having potential use as accessory treatments to classical methods of fighting cancer. These effects are mainly attributed to the polysaccharide and polysaccharide protein complexes. Maitake’s ability to lower blood sugar is attributed to it containing a protein complex that is an alpha glucosidase inhibitor. Multiple antioxidants have also been isolated from the mushroom and some inhibit thickening of atrial walls, controlling blood pressure.
No drug interactions or contraindications have been demonstrated by consuming Maitake. However due to its hypoglycaemic effect, diabetics who choose to consume Maitake should consult their physician in order to adjust their current medication as to ensure their blood glucose levels remain within a safe window.
