Stengler devotes his discussion to a single mushroom type, Maitake Gold 404[R], a medicinal mushroom that is reported to help detoxify the body, lower cholesterol and high blood pressure, provide cellular protection, enhance immune function, and fight cancer. Research has shown that the maitake mushroom has the highest level of therapeutic activity by oral administration of any mushroom. Its therapeutic properties are enhanced through special extraction. Its beta-glucans work against cancer by protecting healthy cells, helping to prevent metastasis, retarding tumor growth, and working in conjunction with chemotherapy.
