What are the benefits of Maitake Mushrooms?

Asked 3 years ago

I've heard about CBD products before but never the same stuff from mushrooms. Are they like magic mushrooms or are there health benefits to them?

Nicknamed ‘hen-of-the-woods,’ this vitamin D-rich fungi has gained popularity due to its supposed health benefits in recent years. Studies suggest that Maitake mushrooms may have therapeutic properties, and they include:

Heart health

Maitake mushrooms are a good source of beta-glucan. These sugars may have the potential to reduce cholesterol levels and improve the general functionality of your arteries, reducing the chances of contracting a heart-related issue.

Improvement of the immune system

The presence of D-fraction may stimulate your body to produce lymphokines and interleukins, improving your response to stimuli.

Cancer management

Researchers suggest that beta-glucan may potentially attack and destroy cancerous cells in your body, reducing cancer risk. Some studies also suggest a combination of D-fraction, MD-fraction, and vitamin C may be effective in cancer management.
