Maitake mushroom supplement benefits also include anti-tumor properties, its ability to boost immunity, as well as stimulating macrophages, which help fight infection. Studies testing maitake against prostate and bladder cancers display promising effects.
Obesity can also be combated by maitake, as it has shown to prevent a particular cell (C3H10T1/2B2C1 to be exact) from converting into adipocytes, a fat-storing cell. But maitake mushroom supplement benefits don’t end there. Maitake is also helpful for those with diabetes by increasing insulin production and controlling glucose levels. Similarly, it is effective in managing high blood pressure and cholesterol. Studies suggest maitake can inhibit effects on the production of lipids, and therefore may be able to lower cholesterol while maintaining good cholesterol levels. This a great natural remedy, since typical drugs that lower high cholesterol (LDL) in turn lower good cholesterol (HDL). For those with abnormally high blood pressure, maitake works especially well when combined with reishi and cordyceps sinensis.
