Maitake Mushroom Extract

Maitake (Grifola Frondosa) is also known as 'Hen of the Woods. Like other mushrooms, it has been used in traditional medicines for many years.

Why Choose Maitake

Blood Sugar Control: Maitake mushrooms aid in regulating blood sugar levels, improving insulin sensitivity, glucose metabolism, and reducing insulin resistance. This can lower blood sugar levels, mitigating diabetes complications and promoting metabolic health. 

Immune System Support: Maitake mushrooms' beta-glucans and polysaccharides enhance immune cell activity, cytokine production, and overall immune function, boosting resilience against infections and diseases.

Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Effect: With antioxidants like phenolic compounds and vitamin C, Maitake mushrooms reduce oxidative stress, their anti-inflammatory properties lower inflammation, promote well-being and reducing the risk of chronic diseases.

Our Extraction Process

Mushrooms are made of a fibrous substance called Chitin, which is indigestible to humans. In order for us to benefit from their medicinal properties, the Chitin cell wall needs to be broken down.

Traditional extraction requires heating medicinal mushrooms in a liquid solvent for long periods of time. Many of their beneficial compounds are heat sensitive, so become denatured as a result.

We use Ultrasonic Assisted Extraction (UAE), which draws out high levels of these compounds at low temperatures. High-frequency sound waves create high-pressure bubbles in liquid, which collapse rapidly, generating intense pressure that breaks the Chitin cell wall and releases the medicinal compounds.

Using UAE, we are able to create a full-spectrum extract that is bio-available, ensuring that you get the maximum health benefits from every extract. 

Our Light Filtering Bottles

We use Miron 'Violet Glass' bottles to contain our extracts.

The unique glass works by filtering out degrading and harmful light and allowing in beneficial light waves. The infrared, ultraviolet and violet lights that can enter the bottle help to prolong the shelf life and efficacy of the extracts.
