Maitake (Grifola Frondosa)
The Vitalita Maitake 10:1 Capsules, also known as Hen-of-the-Woods, is a polypore fungus that grows near the base of oak and maple trees in Japan, Europe, and North America. For generations, this fungus has been revered for its therapeutic properties.
The mushrooms improve immunological function, manage blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar levels, protect the liver, help with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and aid in cancer treatment.
Beta Glucan Benefits
Beta-glucan, a form of polysaccharide, is the essential component in Maitake mushrooms that is responsible for its numerous health benefits. Beta-glucans boost host immune protection by activating the complement system and improving the function of macrophages and natural killer cells. D-fraction is another significant chemical found in Maitake mushrooms that has been shown to strengthen the immune system.
The beta-glucan in maitake is responsible for lowering LDL cholesterol in the body, which aids with cholesterol maintenance and blood pressure control. They also aid in blood sugar regulation, operating similarly to insulin. Maitake also improves pancreatic function by increasing insulin’s ability to bind to liver cells.
According to preliminary study, ingesting maitake mushroom extract can increase ovulation in women whose periods have ceased owing to PCOS. However, Maitake mushrooms do not appear to be as effective for PCOS as clomiphene.
Nonetheless, combining these two medications appears to be more helpful for enhancing ovulation than either agent alone. The D-fraction in Maitake may suppress cancer formation and spread, as well as improve the efficacy of chemotherapy medicines.
Diabetes medications- Maitake mushrooms may lower blood sugar levels. Diabetes drugs are also used to reduce blood sugar levels. If you’re taking both, keep an eye on your blood sugar levels. Your diabetes medication dose may need to be adjusted.
