This super herbal green tea combination offers the king of the mushrooms - Maitake, and the king of the green teas - Matcha. The organic maitake mushroom and premier Japanese matcha green tea are specially blended and prepared to bring out its wonderful taste, beneficial phytochemicals, potent antioxidants and powerful immune compounds to help maintain your good health.*
The following details on these two kings of the herbal kingdom will give you an idea of why Grifron Mai Green Tea is so unique among green teas and popular among tea lovers and holistic doctors.
Maitake literally means dancing mushrooms in folklore. It was said those who consumed Maitake would dance with the joy of good health and longevity. Now recent studies spearheaded by Japanese researchers have confirmed the folklore legends.
These studies have shown that the Maitake Mushroom provides greater effectiveness when taken orally compared to other mushrooms. Maitake’s active constituent is beta glucan, confirmed in studies as having superior properties in stimulating your immune system.*
Studies have also confirmed that Maitake mushroom is more potent than any of the medicinal mushrooms previously studied in terms of PSK and PSP activities as well as the enhancement of your immune system.*
Maitake’s special polysaccharide compounds first stimulate production of cytokines, chemical messengers that signal your immune system to act against a threat to your body.* The higher the levels of cytokines in your body, the more likelihood of a full recovery.* Acting on these messengers, the various components of your cellular immune system including macrophage, natural killer cells, cytotoxic T-cells, interleukins and lymphokines activate to help your body.*
Maitake Mushroom is so strong in its immune enhancing activity that it is being used worldwide for many immune deficiency problems.*

Dr. Andrew Well, MD in his best selling books, "Spontaneous Healing" and " 8 Weeks to Optimum Health" mentions the many health benefits of the Maitake mushroom.
Dr. Peter D'Adamo, ND, author of "Eat Right 4 Your Type", is a long time user of Maitake mushroom and has seen important improvements in various types of patients using Maitake.
Dr. Patrick Quillin, ND, vice president of Nutrition for the Cancer Treatment Centers of America and author of "Beating Cancer with Nutrition" informs its readers of the positive health properties of Maitake mushroom supplements.
Dr. Shari Lieberman, PhD., author of "Maitake, King of Mushroom" writes about a broad range of the healing powers of this extraordinary mushroom.
Matcha is the finest quality of the Japanese green tea family. It is served in the traditional Japanese green tea ceremony. Matcha is considered to be the premier green tea using only hand picked young and soft sprouts.
Chinese green tea is boiled after harvest destroying most of its nutritional value. Matcha Japanese green tea is steamed after harvest to prevent oxidation. Then it is rubbed in various stages and dried. The dried green tea leaves are stored in the freezer for one year at -25°C. These tea leaves are called "Sencha". The Sencha is dried again, and all stalks and veins are separated. It is then grounded with a big stone mill to make a very fine green tea powder (now we call it, "Matcha") which is soluble in hot water.
What makes Matcha very unique is that you drink the green tea powder dissolved in hot water. Other green teas that you drink are actually green tea infusions. Therefore, with Matcha, all the bioactive agents in the green tea can be taken without any waste. As you can see in the following table, you can get a good deal of Vitamin A, B1, B2, Niacin and C from Matcha green tea while you can obtain almost nothing when drinking regular green tea or black tea. Compared to others, the content of carotene (pro-Vitamin A) in matcha green tea is 2 to 4 times more than other green teas and 32 times more than black tea.
Comparison of Vitamin Content (per 100 grams)
|Food source / Vitamin||A (IU)||B1 (mg)||B2 (mg)||Niacin||C (mg)|
|Matcha Green Tea||16,000||0.60||1.35||4.0||60.0|
|Sencha Green Tea||0||0||0.03||0.1||4.0|
All green tea contains catechins (30-42%) which is about 20 times stronger
as an antioxidant than Vitamin E. However, due to the unique process of
how Matcha green tea is made, your body better absorbs its essential vitamins,
minerals and potent catechins.
It is said that drinking Matcha green tea blesses you with good health, happiness, long life and a feeling of tranquility. These are the reasons why Matcha is called "The king of green teas" and regarded as the highest quality green tea of them all. Now you can enjoy Matcha’s mild taste and flavor together with its amazing health benefits and the health benefits of Maitake, "The king of the mushrooms."
The health benefits of green tea have been proven by extensive validated scientific research in Japan, the U.S. and elsewhere. The National Cancer Research Institute in Tokyo found fewer people die of cancer in the Shizuoka area of Japan where green tea is produced and drunk in large quantities.*
Green tea contains four primary polyphenols: Epicatechin; Epicatechin Gallate; Epicallocatechin; and Epicallocatechin Gallate. They are powerful antioxidants.* The researchers at the National Cancer Research Institute in Tokyo found it contains the catechins Epicallocatechin Gallate (EGCG).
Researchers at Case Western Reserve University, Rutgers University and American Health Foundation confirm that green tea polyphenols in animal studies afforded health protection.* Scientists at the Ohio School of Medicine in Toledo also reported on green teas agent.
Research at New York Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center has demonstrated that green tea substantially reduces the frequency of the induction by ultraviolet light or by chemicals.*
Research continues worldwide and more protective healing properties of green tea like those listed above are reported everyday.
The two kings of the herbal kingdom - Maitake Mushroom and Matcha Green Tea - beckon you to enjoy the elegant taste and profound healing benefits of Grifron Mai Green Tea. Remember a wise person honors his body with life giving nourishment.
