MaitakeGold 404® that is exclusively offered by Nutramins, is simply the best Maitake extract in the world. In 1984, Dr. Hiroaki Nanba of Kobe Pharmaceutical University (Kobe, Japan) began work with his team on the development of an orally effective, immune enhancing extract derived from Maitake (Grifola frondosa) mushroom. This led to a critical discovery in the late 1990’s when they found inherent in the Maitake extract a substance or “float” that inhibits the immune enhancing properties of the extract. The Nanba team went on to develop a proprietary process to eliminate this substance from the extract, for which Dr. Nanba was awarded a United States patent (5,854,404). Dr. Nanba has stated this proprietary extract is the most therapeutically concentrated Maitake extract available to date and is marketed exclusively under the tradename, MaitakeGold 404®.
