Maitake mushrooms have been used as an immune stimulant in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine for centuries. Modern analytical methods have determined that it is actually able to stimulate the innate and adaptive immune systems, an effect that is 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 polysaccharides and polysaccharide-protein complexes. Maitake's ability to lower blood sugar is attributed to its content of a protein complex that is an alpha-glucosidase inhibitor. A variety of antioxidants have also been isolated from mushrooms, some of which can inhibit the thickening of the atrial wall and thus control 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.


25mg of extract daily is typical, 200-250mg of powdered form of the mushrooms may be used in place of the extract.
