I have had better luck using host defense mushrooms for the polysaccharides for my tendons. I notice a better effect on my tendons (not as much tendinitis and loose tendons w host defense.) I also use aloe for it as well but there might be more in maitake for people with fibroblast issues. Theoretical ideas of course but after two dislocated knees I will try anything

I used this as an immune enhancer, it probably worked, because I didn't catch a single cold during winter. Click on my username for more reviews! If you thought that this review was helpful please feel free to press the 'yes' button.

Been taking 2 capsules daily for a couple of weeks, and while everyone else in office contracted a flu and fell ill, I was spared. I take various other supplements, so I'm not sure how much Maitake helped, but research backs up its benefits, and I've always been under the impression that mushrooms can do no wrong for your health. Price is a little steep though. Will not repurchase if I can find a cheaper, effective alternative to this.
