Piping Rock Maitake Mushroom 500mg,
120 Capsules, Made in USA
Maitake is one of the most promising medicinal mushrooms. Like other polypores,
maitake contains polysaccharides that stimulate the immune system.
A polysaccharide is a complex carbohydrate made up of smaller sugar molecules.
These sugars stabilize blood pressure, blood sugar, and have an effect on free radicals.
Specific polysaccharides, known as beta-D-glucans, are also suspected to stimulate
the immune system to fight cancer. The exact cancer fighting action of these molecules
is still not clear and is under study. Rather than attacking tumors themselves, some
researchers believe they stimulate the production of T cells to fight the afflicted cells.
In addition to fighting cancer, maitake mushrooms show potential for helping other
conditions as well. Studies are ongoing into its action against:
