Hen of the Woods – Maitake – Hui Shu Hua

Maitake and the closely related Umbrella Polypore (Polyporus umbellatus) are delicious gourmet mushrooms, as well as highly regarded for their health benefits. Indeed, the name ‘Maitake’ means ‘Dancing Mushroom’ in Japanese, indicating people’s joy at finding it! 

Most traditional sources do not mention Maitake and it appears that it was often not differentiated from Umbrella Polypore (also known as Grifola umbellata), of which it is said that ‘long term use makes one feel happy and vigorous and look younger’.


500mg vegetarian capsules / powder (250 gram tub)

Grifola frondosa (Maitake) mycelial biomass supplemented with hot-water extract.

20mg Maitake MD-Fraction per capsule.

MycoNutri Maitake uses optimized mycelial biomass, which is grown for us in the USA on sterile grain-based substrate in an FDA regulated facility and contains the full spectrum of active metabolites from the mycelium and young fruiting body of the mushroom, including beta-glucans, other intra- and extra-cellular polysaccharides, phytosterols (including ergosterol – provitamin D2), proteoglycans, lipids and proteins. We then combine it with a concentrated, beta-glucan rich, hot-water extract containing 20% Maitake MD-Fraction for truly full-spectrum activity.

Daily Allowance

One to three capsules per day or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

Health benefits can also be obtained from 3 to 6 grams per day.
