Grifola frondosa, also known as Maitake, hen of the woods, is a famous culinary-medicinal mushroom. It was known as the “King of the Mushrooms” by Japanese due to it promotes an overall healthy lifestyle.

Although various kinds of chemical constituents have been reported from Maitake, the vast majority of pharmacological studies have focused on the bioactive polysaccharides (mainly beta-glucan) and protein from Maitake.

The biological activities of Maitake are as follows:

     * antitumor

      *  immunomodulation

      *  hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic

      *  induce hematopoietic cell differentiation

      *  hepatoprotective

      *  improve memory impairment

      *  antidepressant

Our organic maitake extract (20% beta-glucan) was extracted with hot water from maitake fruiting bodies planted in our own organic farm in Qingyuan, the national geographic indication area of Maiake in China.

Membrane separation technology is employed to remove small molecules (such as monosacc harides, etc.), and thus enrich the content of beta-glucan. The product is 100% pure extract without any carriers.
