Mushroom Science Maitake Full Spectrum Extract (Grifola frondosa)

For those people who prefer a full spectrum maitake supplement, Mushroom Science offers the only guaranteed potency maitake supplement on the market. Using hot water extraction as recommended in clinical research, this powerful 30% beta 1-3, 1-6 glucan extract contains all the beneficial ingredients maitake has to offer.

Unlike the standardized supplements, the maitake beta glucan fractions in our full spectrum supplement are left in their naturally occurring mix of amino acids, proteins and minerals. This ensures that nothing is left behind, guaranteeing all the immune benefit that maitake mushroom has to offer.

Traditional Use and Preparation

Japanese herbal references have maitake prepared as a decoction/tea (hot water extract). No references are available from Traditional Chinese Medicine. 

Active Constituents

Polysaccharides (1-6, 1-3 linked proteoglycans extracted from the cell walls of the fruit body).

Extraction Information

All of the published research on Maitake and the Maitake Fractions is based on hot water extracts of the fruit bodies.

Hot Water Extracted: Dr. Mark Stengler N.D., in his recent book, The Health Benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms, made the observation that all of the independent scientific studies on medicinal mushrooms are based on the use of hot water extracts. All of the references from Traditional Chinese Medicine also recommend hot water extraction when preparing medicinal mushrooms. There are two main factors involved:

Bioavailability - The immune-supporting polysaccharides common to all medicinal mushrooms and mushroom mycelium are found inside of the cell walls. However, the cell walls are made from an indigestible fiber called "chitin", the same material a lobster shell is made of. Hot water extraction is the only clinically validated method for breaking these polysaccharides out of the indigestible cell walls. Even soft mushrooms like shiitake are prepared as a hot water extract or a tea when used medicinally.

Concentration - The immune supporting polysaccharides found in the cell walls of mushrooms and mushroom mycelium comprise only 0.5-2% of the total mass by dry weight (depending on the mushroom), not enough to have effect even if they were bioavailable. Most hot water mushroom/mycelium extracts are at least a 20:1 concentration. Hot water extraction dissolves the indigestible fiber (chitin), allowing the fiber to be removed from the extract when the water is removed. This process concentrates the polysaccharides to the effective levels identified in the published research.

Hot water extracts (dehydrated) are 50-80 times more potent than tinctures (cold water extracts) or mycelium biomass.

Each bottle contains 90 vegetarian capsules/300 mg per capsule.

Suggested Use: 1-4 capsules twice daily, AM and PM, or more as recommended by your health care professional. Take on empty stomach.
