Maitake

Maitake is a mushroom with a long history of use in traditional Chinese and Japanese herbology and cooking.

It grows wild in Japan and in some wooded areas in eastern North America.

Because maitake is difficult to grow, however, only recently have the mushrooms become widely available.

Maitake is considered an adaptogen, which means it helps your body adapt to stress and normalizes bodily functions.

Its healing properties are thought to be related to its high content of a polysaccharide, which is considered very powerful.

In laboratory studies, this substance has been shown to prevent the growth of cancer cells, kill HIV, and enhance the activity of key immune cells.

Maitake may also be useful for diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic hepatitis, obesity, and high blood pressure.

Maitake can be eaten in food or taken as a supplement.

Buy organically grown dried mushrooms (when using them in cooking, soak them in water or broth for half an hour first), or buy maitake in capsule, extract, or tea form.

Some of the capsule supplements contain a small amount of vitamin C, which enhances the effectiveness of the active ingredient in maitake by aiding in its absorption.
