Maitake Mushrooms For your Immune System

Leave a comment

Maitke mushroomMaitake mushroom is also know as maitake D-fraction and beta-glucan. Maitake D-fraction is an extract of this large mushroom which is marketed as a dietary supplement in the U.S. and Japan. There are claims the maitake mushroom boosts the immune system and can limit and may reverse tumor growth. However there is no convincing data available.
There has been some research on the maitake mushroom and its D-fraction extract in Japan in the mid-1980s. Much has been written on it’s magic healing properties.
According to the American Cancer Society , the maitake mushroom itself has been used as food for centuries and is generally presumed to be safe. So far, studies have not shown any adverse effects from maitake D-fraction or beta glucan, but human studies of their effectiveness in treating cancer have not yet been completed.
The study is still out on the benefits of mushrooms although the Asian population have been using them to heal for centuries.
