Maitake has a high beta-glucan polysaccharide content which may help detoxify the body and helps to protect the liver by processing toxins.

It is also believed to help absorb micro-nutrients, especially zinc and copper and has ‘Natural Killer Cell’ activity promoting properties, to potentially lower cholesterol levels. 

Maitake grows in wild regions across China, Japan and North America, growing at the bottom of Maple, Elm or Oak trees most commonly during Autumn.
