What is Maitake for?

Maitake mushrooms grow wild in parts of Japan, China, and North America. They are considered adaptogens, meaning that they contain powerful properties that can help naturally restore and balance the body to promote better health. Though they have been used for thousands of years in Japan and China, they have only gained popularity in the United States over the last twenty years.
