I used this as an immune enhancer, it probably worked, because I didn't catch a single cold during winter.

Part of a great combination for modulating blood sugar
Posted by Reviewer2961002 on Jun 19, 2010
After much experimentation I have found that the combination of one NOW Maitake extract gelcap plus one Solgar Blueberry *Leaf* extract, taken before a meal (ideally 10-15 minutes) pack a punch for me in preventing blood sugar spikes in either direction (ie., high earlier or low later). Especially helpful for higher-carb meals. One Maitake extract gelcap taken alone doesn't accomplish much for me in this regard (though it may certainly have long-term benefits; while one Blueberry Leaf extract gelcap taken alone definitely helps, but not nearly so well as when combined with the NOW Maitake extract. The downsides are that this makes a somewhat expensive herbal combination if taken multiple times a day (though cheaper at iHerb than anywhere else!); and that both extracts also contain whole-herb powder -- which may add to the benefit, but whole-herb powder can sometimes contain a bit of lead or cadmium, even with deservedly reputable brands like these...probably not enough to worry about, but I do like to keep it in mind when significantly increasing whole-herb intake.
