Description: Organic Maitake (Grifola frondosa)

What is Maitake?

Maitake, or Grifola frondosa, is a mushroom native to north-eastern Japan, but it can also be found in other parts of Asia and Europe. This cluster-shaped fungus has multiple ‘caps’ and grows as a parasite in the trunk of some trees, weighing up to 20 kg.

Recognised for thousands of years, Maitake forms part of the ‘longevity triad’ alongside Reishi and Shiitake, because of their positive effects on the body1. Because of its nutritional properties, it earned its status as a superfood thousands of years ago, when it was reserved for the emperor and his family to consume.

Although in Asia it has been customary to use mushrooms to treat certain disorders or health problems for centuries, there has been increasing research into applications of mushrooms as ‘mycotherapies’ in recent years. These types of remedies are called integrative treatments and aim to complement (but never replace) conventional medicines with additional therapies.

What is Maitake used for?

Maitake is recognised worldwide for its multiple and varied active components. This makes it a mushroom that not only provides well-being but also has high nutritional value.

Properties of Maitake

Strengthens the immune response
Superfood with high nutritional content
Promotes cardiovascular health

Its properties stem mainly from its high concentration of:

  • Polysaccharides: linked to a healthy immune system2.
  • Ergosterols: a group of substances involved in the absorption of cholesterol in the blood3.
  • Magnesium: helps reduce tiredness and fatigue. It also promotes electrolyte balance4.
  • Potassium: nervous system support that also aids healthy muscle function4.
  • Essential amino acids: this type of amino acid is not synthesised by the body and must therefore be ingested in the diet through food supplements.
  • Group B vitamins: Group B vitamins are needed for the body to function properly, and this complex includes thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B8), folic acid (B9) and cyanocobalamin (B12). The multiple positive effects of these vitamins include their impact on the immune system4 and their capacity to regulate hormone activity4.

In addition to its nutritional profile, the effects of Maitake are being researched as an integrative treatment in combination with conventional medical treatments, and its effects on the quality of life of patients who combine both options5.

Benefits of Maitake

Maitake strengthens the immune system

Maitake gets its properties and benefits from its essential components. Multiple research studies are currently being carried out on Maitake’s various effects, but its most notable benefits include:

  • Strengthening the immune system: thanks to its high polysaccharide content.
  • Promoting cardiovascular health: the ergosterols it contains have positive effects on heart health.
  • Superfood with high nutritional content: contains numerous essential elements such as vitamins, minerals, fibre and proteins.

Who is Organic Maitake designed for?

Maitake is rich in fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals

PLANTAE®’s Organic Maitake comes in convenient plant-based capsules and has been developed for people seeking food supplements that strengthen their immune response and help the body process environmental factors.

This product is an excellent option for people wanting to buy natural Maitake capsules to get a powerful supplement packed with nutrients to combat day-to-day fatigue.

How to take Organic Maitake?

We recommend taking 2 capsules of organic Maitake per day in two separate does with half a glass of water at mealtimes. This will give you 500 mg dry extract of Maitake per day, since the product offers one of the highest concentrations of this Asian fungus.

Organic Maitake quality guarantee

PLANTAE® produces premium food supplements of natural origin, but our aim is also for consumers to enjoy eco-friendly products that are also developed in an environmentally conscious way.

That’s why PLANTAE® has formulated an organic Maitake that is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. We have selected Maitake mushrooms containing 50% polysaccharides and 15% beta-glucans, increasing the product’s efficacy.

Can Organic Maitake be combined with other food supplements?

Organic Maitake by PLANTAE® can be combined with Anastore's Vitamin D3, as both help to strengthen immune response4 and improve musculoskeletal health4.

It would also be beneficial to combine Maitake with the other mushrooms from the ancient fungi triad: Organic Reishi and Organic Shiitake by PLANTAE®. Supplementation with these three mushrooms would not only boost the immune system, but could also be very beneficial for maintaining good cardiovascular health2,4.
