Maitake (Grifola frondosa) is a medicinal mushroom, commonly used as an adaptogen. It assists the body in fighting mental and physical difficulties, working to balance and regulate our internal systems.
The mushroom grows wild in parts of China, Japan and North America and is usually found at the bottom of Oak, Elm and Maple trees, during the autumn months.
Maitake means ‘dancing mushroom’ in Japanese. It was given this name during Japan’s feudal era, when people would dance with joy upon finding it in the wild, knowing it could be traded with local lords for silver.
Maitake mushrooms are supercharged with amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins B and C, along with copper, potassium, fibre and a wide range of vital minerals. Additionally, they contain polysaccharides and beta-glucans, which give them their medicinal quality.
Maitake mushrooms are fat-free, low-calorie, low in sodium and cholesterol-free, making them a healthy addition to a balanced diet.
Polysaccharides -Long complex chains of carbohydrate molecules made up of small sugar molecules. They stabilise blood pressure, support the cells and tissue, and have a positive effect on free radicals.
Beta-Glucans -Sugars that are found within the cell walls of fungi. These are effective in reducing cholesterol levels and strengthening the immune system.
