History of Maitake mushroom extract

Maitake is a large mushroom that grows mostly in the mountains of the Far East, as well as in North America and Europe. Maitake mushrooms, also known as "maitake mushrooms," are known for their delicious taste and health benefits. Japanese legend holds that anyone who finds this rare and precious mushroom will dance for joy. Others attribute its name to the mushroom's overlapping fruiting bodies, which look like dancing butterflies. Historically, maitake has been used as a tonic and adaptogen. It is taken as a food to help promote well-being and vitality. Traditionally, eating this type of mushroom is considered to prevent high blood pressure and cancer, etc., and has become the focus of modern medical research. Maitake extract uses high-quality maitake as raw material and is extracted through technological fermentation.
