Maitake is one of the most well-studied medicinal mushrooms. It has been found that one of the ways in which Maitake assists the immune system is through its capacity to stimulate the immune system’s lymphocytes such as natural killer cells and t-helper cells. These cells target and kill aberrant cells, cells that are not healthy or up to standards, such as those that are virally infected or tumorigenic cells. Maitake mushroom extract contains polysaccharides such as beta-glucans, which research suggests may be linked to healthy cell growth and turnover and may reduce tumor growth and proliferation. Along with aiding the immune system, Maitake also has other uses, such as its antioxidant capacity and its ability to help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Also, as an adaptogen, Maitake helps the body achieve a healthier, less damaging response to stress.
