Maitake (Grifola frondosa)
Maitake is a delicious medicinal mushroom that promotes a healthy immune system, healthy blood pressure and healthy blood sugar levels. In Japan, it is known as the "King of Mushrooms." Its name literally means "Dancing Mushroom," because upon finding Maitake deep in the mountains the lucky discoverers, often samurai warriors, would dance for joy. Maitake was introduced to America in 1991 by Mike Shirota, President & CEO of Maitake Products, Inc., now Mushroom Wisdom.
