After years of studies, this VIP mushroom has proven to be an amazing preventative. It’s so powerful, in fact, that maitake extract is being tested for its cancer-fighting ability. Early tests have yielded promising results, particularly with breast cancer.

 

Maitake can slow tumor growth by inhibiting a cancerous cell’s ability to produce its own blood vessels, slowly starving and shrinking the tumor. It’s also used to curb the nasty side effects that come with chemotherapy.

 

One of the main healing constituents in maitake is beta-glucan, which regulates your immune system to kill off existing bacteria, viruses and fungi. Beta-glucan, which is usually found in oats and other fibrous foods, is currently being studied as an anti-cancer remedy. Preliminary animal studies show that beta-glucan stops the spread of cancer by triggering an immune response to fight off foreign cells.

 

 

Maitake is also a hepatic which means that it detoxifies your body while ensuring that your liver is protected. As the main organ that purifies your blood and detoxifies chemicals and drugs, it’s important for those diagnosed with cancer to keep the liver running in tip top shape (especially for those who have chosen the chemo route). 

 

 

Among it’s many other benefits: maitake is rich in fiber which lowers cholesterol, regulates bathroom trips and can help maintain your body’s insulin response. It’s protein, calcium, and iron content makes for strong bones, muscles and tissues, and its B vitamins and vitamin D2 help your body convert food into energy.

 

 

It also supplies the copper, potassium, magnesium and selenium your body needs to keep up communication within your nervous system. 

 

With all these amazing benefits, adding maitake to your regular diet is a no-brainer… at least for me. It’s completely safe to consume, so you can throw it into your dishes whenever you need a boost!
