Grifola frondosa, the Maitake mushroom, is also known as Hen of the Woods. It has a long history of medical use in Japan and surrounding Asian countries. Maitake is well-known for its adaptogenic properties, helping the body and mind to adapt to stress! In recent years it has gained a reputation in being helpful for fighting cancer and boosting the immune system. These mushrooms are also rich in antioxidants and a range of vitamins & minerals, including B Vitamins, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Copper & Potassium.
As with all herbal medicines, it is up to each of us to research and explore to see how well they resonate with our unique biochemistry! Many of our mushroom powders have overlapping benefits, but you may find that one works better for your biochemistry than another, or some combination of them works best for you… you’ve got to explore your own puzzle and see what fits best 🙂
Most mushrooms we see and know of are the Fruit of the fungus body, whereas the actual body itself is the mycelium structure which grows on the host medium. Our Maitake Powder comes from 100% Fruiting Bodies from the Reishi Mushroom!
Our mushrooms powders can be added to smoothies & foods, encapsulated, or used to prepare tinctures or other medicinal concoctions.
