In 1991, the Maitake Mushroom product was introduced to America by Maitake Products, Inc., founded by Mike Shirota. 28 years later, it is now known as Mushroom Wisdom, a global leader in the development, production and research of mushroom supplements. Mushroom Wisdom supplies the many wonderful benefits of mushrooms to our health. They undergo painstaking and thorough scientific research to discover the miracles of mushrooms and then develop products to offer them worldwide. It is amazing to learn that mushrooms are able to support the immune system, brain function, blood sugar levels, breast health, prostate health and more, and that is Mushroom Wisdom’s purpose. Aside from developing health supplements, Mushroom Wisdom is also a leader in mycological research. The company is a supporter of clinical and laboratory studies of Maitake D-Fraction®, Maitake SX-Fraction®, Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps and their active components. The company has taken on these research studies in partnership with top universities and hospitals like Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, National Cancer Institutes, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Georgetown University, New York Medical College and Indiana School of Medicine, to name a few.
