Grifola frondosa is also known as the “dancing mushroom”. In Japan when foragers found maitake, knowing they would be greatly compensated for their discovery they would dance with joy, hence the name. The mushroom was so highly valued in Asia that prior to mass cultivation, the expert mushroom foragers would keep their harvest areas so secret that they would only reveal their locations and their wills.
Maitake has proven itself as one of the most nutritionally rich polypore mushrooms, containing a wealth of health-beneficial compounds like beta-glucans, antioxidants, phytosterols, fiber, vitamins B and C, potassium, minerals, and amino acids. Maitake is the subject of investigation to support the immune system, lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and help the body fight viruses and cancers. We include Grifola frondosa in our Potent Source Blend.
This ingredient was held secret to the ones who coveted the mushroom. One of the most nutrient dense mushrooms available today. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and immune boosting properties.
