Chi's Enterprise Maitake, 120 caps

Maitake is an edible mushroom that has long been prized as an immune boosting medicinal herb in traditional Chinese medicine. 

The evidence confirming Maitake's therapeutic value - both in and out of the laboratory - is impressive.

Clinical studies have shown that Maitake extract can block the growth of mutated tissues and boost the immune function of mice with cellular mutations. In one study, maitake extract induced natural killer cells and activated the maturation of bone marrow-derived dendritic cells that exhibited significant antitumor activity in mice*. 

A recent study aimed to examine the immunomodulatory activities of maitake extract and its bioactive compound ergosterol peroxide (EPO) in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced human monocytic (THP-1) cells. Low concentrations of maitake extract showed a full protection agaist LPS-stimuated cells, and effectively inhibited NF-κB activation. The results concluded that the bioactive compound (EPO) found in maitake extract played an important role in the immunomodulatory activity of maitake through inhibiting the production of pro-inflammatory mediators.** 

Chi's Maitake Extract may provide immune support and could be used to possibly lessen side effects related to chemotherapy treatment.
