Immune-enhancing effects of Maitake (Grifola frondosa) and Shiitake (Lentinula edodes) extracts. Researchers looked at a maitake mushroom extract and powdered shiitake and found that short-term oral application of natural immunomodulating glucans from maitake and shiitake mushrooms strongly stimulated both the cellular and humoral branch of immune reactions. These activities were significantly higher than those of AHCC, a gluten-rich nutraceutical product found to have significant immunostimulating effects.

Effect of dietary Maitake (Grifola frondosa) mushrooms on plasma cholesterol and hepatic gene expression in cholesterol-fed mice. After feeding mice a combination of maitake and cholesterol,  researchers found that the mice had lower blood cholesterol that those that didn’t eat maitake. They also found that maitake suppressed the genes that synthesize cholesterol in the body.

Grifola frondosa (maitake mushroom) water extract inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor-induced angiogenesis through inhibition of reactive oxygen species and extracellular signal-regulated kinase phosphorylation. Researchers found that a water extract of maitake inhibited the development of new blood vessels suggesting that the mushroom “may be a valuable medicinal food for treatment of angiogenesis-associated human diseases.”
