Maitake (Grifola frondosa) is a medicinal mushroom that is best known for its ability to detoxify carcinogens as it contains beta glucan polysaccharides, which have been found to promote natural cell growth and energize the cellular immune system to an astounding degree. However, the health benefits of maitake are not limited to these two traits.
Maitake supports the healing of a broad spectrum of conditions including: helping protect the liver in handling chemical toxins; fighting hepatitis B; battling blood, stomach, and bone cell mutation; lowering high blood pressure and blood lipid levels (two key risk factor in cardiovascular disease); aiding digestion in the stomach and intestines; and, finally, provinding nutritional support by enhancing the colon’s ability to absorb micronutrients, especially copper and zinc.
Maitake has also been known to promote the following:
Supporting cardiovascular health by regulating blood pressure and normalizing cholesterol and blood lipids
Supporting the appropriate production of insulin
Stimulating the immune system
Activating macrophages, which consume mutated cells
Helping block the growth of tumors
Studies demonstrate Maitake is an effective tool in treating leukemia, stomach, and bone cancers
Relieving side effects of chemotherapy
Aiding digestion by eliminating food stagnation
Supporting liver health, especially as related to hepatitis
Fighting bacterial and viral infections

What are herbal extracts? Herbal extracts are an excellent way of getting the nutrition and goodness from a herb, without the trouble of sometimes elaborate preparation. They are also a way of getting the goodness in as concentrated a form as possible.
How are herbal extracts made? The raw herbs are prepared by hot water extraction, the water is then evaporated off until all that is left is the essential oils and active ingredients. These are then bound together in an excipient, small amounts of non-GM corn flour. This is the most pure and unadulterated way to enjoy tonic herbal extracts possible.
