OVERVIEW: What is Organic Maitake Mushroom?
Maitake mushroom or Hen of the Woods, is a large, soft-fleshed polypore – which are a fascinating group of fungi which form unique fruiting bodies. Growing in northern temperate forests, it’s often found on dead stumps and dying trees. It has been highlighted throughout history and continues to maintain its popularity.
Throughout China and Japan, Maitake mushrooms have been utilized for approximately 3,000 years. In fact, years ago, this mushroom was so highly valued, that it was worth its weight in silver. It wasn’t until the late 1980s that Japanese scientists discovered just how potent Maitake mushrooms were in terms of traditional Asian medicine.
Although a number of cultures have consumed this mushroom over the years, only recently have efforts began to cultivate this mushroom based on its reported beneficial properties. Before 1979, you could only source this mushroom in the wild. Throughout the mid 90s, worldwide production and cultivation increased 40-fold and continues to be utilized for its evidence-based effects.
