Maitake mushrooms, like the Reishi, ABM and Shiitake, contain important polysaccharide compounds that are used for illnesses and immune system deficiency treatment. These treatments have shown anti-tumor effects in mice. The polysaccharides in Maitake are reported to activate the body's own effector cells such as natural killer cells and macrophages that filter the blood.

Wonderful February 3, 2012
Reviewer: Gabi Voigt from Mississauga, ON Canada  
I use this in my miso soup.  I break the pieces down 'cause they really swell when rehydrated.  Then they get simmered in water for about 10-15 minutes.  Once the veggies and miso are added the soup is wonderful and full of body.  The texture is 'meat-like'.  Smaller quantities for maintaining health and a bit larger for improving.  I can easily see using this by soaking / simmering then cooling and adding to a salad or side of veggies.  Can't go wrong with this one.
