Explore the potential benefits of the Maitake mushroom. It may: 

✔️ Bolster immune system¹

This product has been tested for pesticides, artificial fertilisers, heavy metals, e.coli, yeast, mould, salmonella and foreign matter. It contains no bulking agents, added sugar, palm oil or GMO. 




Traditionally used to support the immune system by activating natural immune cells, Maitake mushroom powder goes beyond immune support¹. Recent research suggests that it may also possess antiviral and antimicrobial properties, making it an excellent addition to your wellness routine². Additionally, this powder contains high levels of antioxidants, which can help combat free radicals and promote overall well-being³.


Maitake mushrooms have shown potential in helping to regulate blood sugar levels and manage diabetes. Research indicates that certain compounds found in Maitake, such as beta-glucans, may have a positive impact on blood sugar control. These compounds could improve insulin sensitivity and help the body use glucose more effectively².


Research suggests that Maitake mushrooms might help in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels and blood pressure². When included in the diet of animals, these mushrooms appeared to reduce the levels of triglycerides, cholesterol, and phospholipids in their bloodstream⁴. Additionally, they contributed to lower liver fat. Furthermore, experiments found that Maitake mushrooms could potentially help in reducing high blood pressure⁵. 


Maitake mushrooms (Grifola Frondosa Polyporaceae) have been prized in Asia for thousands of years for their health benefits. The Japanese word “maitake” means “dancing mushroom,” a name derived from the reaction of people having found these mushrooms, which are very valuable. Also in Japan, maitake can grow to more than 50 pounds (20 kg), earning this giant mushroom the title ‘King of Mushrooms’.

The Maitake mushrooms that we use for our mushroom powder are grown on wood in China as nature intended and made from 100% fruiting body for maximum nutritional value.

Dosage for Dogs

We recommend starting with a dosage of 0.356 g (16th of a teaspoon) per 15kg of weight for the first 3 days.

We would then look to raise the dosage for serious need to 0.5 g (1/4 of a teaspoon) for every 15 kg of bodyweight per day, or as recommended by your Vet.

Does mushroom powder have any side effects for dogs? 

Mushroom powder is generally considered safe for dogs when used as directed and in appropriate doses. However, as with any supplement or dietary change, individual dogs may react differently. Before introducing mushroom powder to your dog's diet, and if you observe any unusual symptoms or have concerns, we recommend consulting with a veterinarian for guidance and to address any specific health-related questions. 

What is the recommended duration for using mushroom powder? Is it safe for long-term use?

Mushroom powder can typically be used for extended periods as part of a long-term wellness regimen for your dog. It is considered safe for continuous use, but the ideal duration may vary depending on your dog's specific health goals and individual needs. Many dog owners incorporate mushroom powder into their dog's daily diet as part of a holistic approach to overall well-being.

It's essential to consult with a veterinarian to determine the most suitable duration and dosage, especially if your dog has specific health concerns.

How can I incorporate mushroom powder into my dog's diet?

Incorporating Turkey Tail mushroom powder into your dog's diet is typically straightforward and can often be mixed with their regular food. Here's a general guideline:

  • Sprinkle on Food: You can sprinkle the recommended dosage of Turkey Tail mushroom powder directly onto your dog's regular food. Mixing it well with the food ensures your dog consumes it.
  • Mix with Treats: If your dog enjoys treats, you can sprinkle the powder onto their treats or mix it into treat ingredients.
  • Create a Gravy or Paste: Some dog owners mix the powder with a small amount of water to create a paste or gravy-like consistency, which can then be poured over the food.
  • Homemade Dog Food: If you prepare homemade meals for your dog, you can incorporate the powder directly into their meals.

Ensure you follow the recommended dosage based on your dog's weight and health needs. Starting with a small amount and gradually increasing it over a few days can help your dog adjust to the new addition.
