Also known as the 'Hen of the Woods' Maitake has been enjoyed traditionally for 1000's of years. And get this, in Japan some people call it 'The Dancing Mushroom' because people would dance with joy when they found one in the forest. Do a little dance because you've found it here?
Maitake Extract is rich in minerals, vitamins, amino acids and polysaccharides and has been used for 1000's of years to boost the immune system in a number of different ways.
ENRICHD SUPERFOODS Maitake Extract Powder is derived from the fruiting body and is what's known as SEMI-WILD - It's grown on the right wood in pristine conditions. This makes this Maitake more reliable, potent and superior to others (our Maitake is not grown on oats).
