We maintain a strong emphasis on supplying ethically sourced, sustainably wild-harvested, and premium quality plant and fungi medicinals. Our maitake is wild-harvested in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Our medicinal mushroom tinctures are made by using the double-extraction method which is necessary for making a full-spectrum medicine. Maitake or Grifola frondosa is a medicinal and culinary mushroom of many names. Known to some as the "dancing mushroom" and to others as "hen of the woods."
It is said to be the most potent immune boosting mushroom to exist! That's a reason to dance!
Rich in polysaccharides, in particular beta-glucans--which activate a host defense response by stimulating the proliferation of immune cells such as macrophages, T-cells, natural killer cells and neutrophils. The beta-glucans from maitake trigger antibodies to fully activate and fight some rather devastating chronic illnesses. Maitake helps stengthen the body’s innate immune response to overpower and rid itself of foreign invaders. Some other impressive benefits are:
• Increases resistance against sickness and disease
• Helps the body to remove cellular waste and speed up recovery from tissue damage
• Protects the body and reduces side effects from chemotherapy
• Lowers blood sugar and blood pressure
• Demonstrates an anti-inflammatory effect on the GI tract
• Invaluable for Irritable Bowel
• Aids in weight loss
• Reduces chronic inflammation throughout body
• Blasts tumors and cysts
Precautions: Maitake shouldn’t be taken by those who have low blood pressure as this mushroom could lower it even further.
