Maitake (Grifola frondosa) is the Japanese name for an edible fungi with a large
fruiting body characterized by overlapping waves. Maitake is derived from the Japanese,
"mai" meaning dance and "take" meaning mushroom, thus many refer to Maitake as the
"dancing mushroom". It is a premier culinary mushroom as well as a medicinal mushroom.
Though mushrooms in general are not particularly known for being nutrient-dense,
medicinal mushrooms such as maitake are increasingly being recognized as a potent
source of various compounds with diverse biological and therapeutic effects with
dramatic health-promoting properties.
Wthin the past two decades, maitake has begun to be cultivated not just as a food but also
as a dietary supplement that may significantly benefit overall health. It very well may be the
most versatile and promising medicinal mushroom supplement, Andrew Weil has said that
maitake appears to be the most effective immune-boosting mushroom of all, noting that
it belongs to the polypore family of medicinal mushrooms that, in the Far East, includes
many mushrooms that "are highly esteemed as medicinal herbs, especially the class of
superior drugs, the tonics and panaceas that increase resistance and promote longevity."
Such adaptogens are often taken on a daily basis to help balance bodily functions and
prevent disease. The maitake mushroom was cultivated in 1985 in China(South of China,
Only in Qingyuan County,Zhejiang Province,Special climate & environment).
