MaitakeGold is a potent Maitake mushroom extract developed by Dr. Hiroaki Nanba, PhD., the inventor of Maitake nutraceuticals. MaitakeGold represents such a significant improvement in Maitake formulations that it was recently granted a U.S. Patent (U.S. Patent # 5,854,404). The only Maitake product that carries Dr. Nanba's personal endorsement, MaitakeGold is all natural, and is extracted from Maitake mushrooms grown by the Yukiguni Maitake Company of Japan.
The research on Maitake fractions has focused primarily on immuno-modulating properties. Although no controlled human clinical studies have yet to be completed studies involving the use of MaitakeGold for immune support are in progress at Sloan-Kettering. The results of the in vitro research and uncontrolled human clinical research suggest significant immuno-modulating properties including activation of Natural Killer cells.
