Maitake Mushroom Fruiting Body 1:1 Extract Powder 

Maitake is native to China, northeastern Japan and North America, where it can be found on the forest floor at the base of oak, maple or elm trees. Capable of growing to over 100 pounds, it earned the title of “king of the mushrooms.” It was first discovered over 2,000 years ago by a group of Buddhist nuns and woodcutters in Japan. Apparently, overjoyed by the taste, sight and medicinal properties of this distinctive mushroom, they danced, and it's nickname derives from that experience. Following its discovery, Maitake became an integral part of Chinese and Japanese herbology as a result of its therapeutic and restorative attributes. It was used in Chinese Medicine. to improve spleen and stomach health as well as to help calm nerves. In 1979, Japanese mycologists created indoor and outdoor cultivation techniques and today, Maitake is one of the more broadly used mushrooms throughout the world.

Category: Adaptogen, Medicinal

These herbs are named for their ability to help the body “adapt” to stress and current life conditions. They are generally very safe herbs for men, women, and children. Adaptogenic herbs help the body build strength, endurance, vitality, energy, and immunity over time. They are meant to be taken long-term for the best results.

These herbs are so named because they are medicine and should be respected as such. God gave herbs to be used as medicine, so it is important to use wisdom in taking them. Each medicinal herb usually targets a specific gland, organ, or body system. They are stronger, which is why it is recommended to use lower dosages for short periods of time.

Suggested Use

With medicinal herbs, it is important to start slow and increase gradually. Begin with 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon in food, drinks, smoothies, or tea, and then evaluate to see how the body is doing. Increase in small increments of 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon if the body is responding well until the desired response is achieved. It is recommended that these types of herbs be used at low dosages for a short period of time. For management of stress, hormone balance, or nutrition, focus on the adaptogenic and nutritive herbs.
