How to find the best Maitake extract.
As you’ve probably already found out, there are a lot of Maitake extracts and Maitake supplements on the market.
And it is a serious challenge to understand what exactly they are selling and if it is the best value and effect.
Even for myself, after a decade of mushroom research in the laboratory, I still have a hard time figuring out what some companies are selling. Especially the biggest companies. It seems that I’m going in an endless circle trying to understand what is in their product and how it is made.
It is not an accident that many companies make it tough to figure out how they are producing the products. Where the mushrooms were grown. How they are quantifying thier claims. And what exact research has been done on THEIR product. NOT on other Maitake products which they try to appear similar to.
A major problem I see daily are companies that “sandwich” their small research results between major research done on other extracts. Making it look like all of that research was done on their product. It’s a clever trick that even some scientific journals did not notice before allowing the publishing of weak research. Every science journal claims to be “peer reviewed”. But things slip throught the cracks.
Anyways what I’m trying to say is, if you are getting confused when trying to compare products and their research support, IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT!
It comes down to business. And companies trying to make the biggest profit by selling cheap Chinese extracts and making them appear to be high value. It’s good business on the sellers’ side.
So the topic of this post is how to find the best Maitake extract.
Luckily there are a few simple ways to avoid low value/high price products.
1) There is only one Maitake extract which is patented from initial discoveries in Japan and then studied and published in American human clinical trials.
It is patent 5,854,404.
2) There are quite a few companies that sell this patented extract, branded under various names. So it is quite easy to compare quantity on a milligram basis across different companies’ products. So we can compare clearly how many milligrams are in a whole box/bottle and divide by the total price. To get the price per milligram.
Price per milligram is the best way to compare these patented Maitake extracts.
3) The research on all Maitake patent 5,854,404 extract is the same. Because it is the same extract. That makes it simple to find the best product.
Now that you know which maitake extract patent is the authentic one and how to compare price on a milligram basis, please go take a look HERE and try to find a better Maitake product (price, quantity or dose wise)
