Ultimate Guide To Maitake: The Sugar Shroom

Ultimate Guide To Maitake: The Sugar Shroom

Maitake, translating to "dancing mushroom" in Japanese, earned its name from the joy it brought to those who discovered it due to its exceptional healing properties.

We’ve decided to nickname Maitake “The Sugar Shroom” due to its powerful anti-diabetic properties & amazing ability to stabilise blood sugar levels, further aiding in emotional stability and entering flow state.

This mushroom functions as an adaptogen, assisting the body in managing mental and physical stress while rebalancing its systems.

Compared to other mushrooms, maitake has demonstrated superior results in preventing and treating cancer and other health conditions. This is because Maitake mushrooms have two key compounds: D-fraction and beta-glucans.

Beta-glucanspolysaccharides found in Maitake mushrooms, are renowned for their ability to modulate the immune system. There has been research that suggests beta-glucans can influence programmed cell death, potentially slowing the harmful behavior of cancer cells.

Maitake D-fraction has a remarkable ability to trigger controlled cancer cell death (apoptosis) and bolster the immune system.

While Maitake D-fraction regulates cell turnover and boosts the immune system, beta-glucans enhance the programmed cell death of cancer cells and control the body's immune response.

Maitake mushrooms are also rich in antioxidants, vitamins B and C, copper, potassium, fiber, minerals, and amino acids.

Additionally, maitake mushrooms are fat-free, low in sodium, low in calories, and cholesterol-free.
