If I take maitake mushroom supplements, how much should I take?

A Answers (1)

  • Adults (18 years and older):

    Beta-glucan from maitake has been taken by mouth in the form of capsules, tablets, or a liquid extract, however, reliable dosing information is lacking. Reliable dosing information is also lacking for raw maitake mushroom.

    • To improve immune function, maitake extract has been taken by mouth in doses of 0.1-5 milligrams per kilogram, twice daily for three weeks. One drop per kilogram of Grifron-Pro Maitake D-fraction® (Maitake Products, Inc.) has been taken by mouth in three divided doses.
    • To treat ovulation disorders, 18 milligrams of maitake extract (MSX) plus 250 milligrams of dried maitake mushroom powder (Maitake Products Inc.) have been taken by mouth in the form of three tablets, three times daily between meals beginning on the first day of menstruation for up to 12 weeks or three cycles.
    You should read product labels, and discuss all therapies with a qualified healthcare provider. Natural Standard information does not constitute medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
