Benefits of Maitake
Maitake mushrooms are a superfood rich in minerals, vitamins and amino acids. They are known for their medicinal healing properties. What sets this mushroom apart is a unique compound called beta-glucan. The beta-glucan protein bioactive helps to activate immune functions within the cells to improve necessary cytokine modulation for a better armed immune system. To do this, the beta-glucan binds to macrophages and either activates or inhibits the release of key cytokines.
Why Maitake Pt78?
Maitake Pt78 is not only a great source of beta-glucans, but is a unique source of the glucan-protein complex, which plays a primary role in the activation of mechanisms that support a healthy immune system. It is also a powerful source of immune boosting monosaccharides.
Maitake Pt78 uses a proprietary manufacturing process that ensures potency and purity of the extract for at least three years and delivers optimal results at as low a dosage as 15mg per day.
Maitake Pt78 is GRAS, Non-GMO, Gluten-free, Vegan and suitable for a wide variety of product applications including multi-vitamin, immune support, travel, stress & sports performance formulas for all ages.*
A 3-week, double-blind human clinical study showed positive immune health results among subjects that consumed this ingredient. When consumed at the recommended dose, the extract helped to activate T cells; increase levels of immune enhancing cytokines IL-2, TNF-a, and IFN-y; and increased levels of cytokine IL-10.1 Previous ex vivo and in vitro pre-clinical research on animal subjects showed similar results with the addition of increased phagocytic activity up to 58%.
