Z Natural Foods® released a new Organic Maitake Mushroom Extract powder. With its adaptogen-like qualities, Maitake Mushroom Extract features essential phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals, including vitamin D, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, B vitamins, and amino acids. 

The primary compound (polysaccharide) found in Maitake is beta-D-glucan, which is known to support the immune system and ward off microbes. 

Maitake is a remarkable mushroom traditionally used in Chinese medicine to support longevity. Furthermore, it is widely believed that Maitake helps gut health by fueling the growth of "good bacteria," which may be one of the primary reasons Maitake is so effective at supporting good health.  Rich in antioxidants, it is also believed that Maitake Mushroom helps reduce oxidative stress, possibly supporting brain health and memory function. 

Known for its taste, culinary flexibility, and excellent nutritional properties, Maitake Mushroom may also support a healthy insulin response and cholesterol levels. 

Organic Maitake Mushroom Extract Powder is available in a 1lb. quantity for $37.99, a 5lb. quantity for $164.99, and a 55lb size. Organic Maitake Mushroom Extract Powder is packaged in airtight, stand-up, resealable foil pouches for optimum freshness.
