Host Defense Maitake by Fungi Perfecti
Maitake is considered by many scientists to be the most powerful immuno-supporter in the mushroom kingdom and in promoting normal cell growth, particularly in the breasts, lungs, and the liver. Many fractions of Maitake have been used for immunostimulating effect, but as with most natural compounds, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Maitake, containing all fractions, has been clinically shown to increase Natural Killer (NK) Cell activity by up to 300%.
Maitake (Grifola frondosa) has been the subject of studies worldwide and is known for supporting normal cell growth. Rich in 1,3, 1,4 and 1,6 beta-D glucans, Maitake is a delicious, edible species, with a long history of traditional use.
Organic Mushrooms from Paul Stamets are the finest traditional mushrooms grown anywhere in the world and are the only commercially available mushrooms with a Certified P-Value. P-Value is a scientific term for the genetic integrity of the mushroom. When Paul Stamets, one of the world's leading mushroom experts, selects a mushroom from the rainforest he cultures it in rigorously controlled conditions in his laboratories. The growing mushroom mycelium is absolutely genetically identical with the rainforest mushroom that gave it birth, carrying all of its genetic energy and healing force. Mushrooms not grown in such a rigorous potency-assured manner may be hundreds of generations distant from the purity of their genetic heritage and thus suffer genetic degeneration and a lack of vitality.
