Corporate History

The company was founded in 1991 by CEO Mike Shirota in order to bring the benefits of mushrooms to everyday healthy lifestyles. In pursuit of that mission it has served as a bridge that links Eastern mushroom tradition with Western scientific research and validation.

Originally named Maitake Products, Inc., in its initial years the company introduced Maitake mushroom extract to America. Its proprietary Maitake D-Fraction® for ultimate immune support and Maitake SX-Fraction® for healthy blood sugar support are now established category leaders.* The company grew steadily with the wide acceptance of D-Fraction® and SX-Fraction® as well as additional products. In 2009 it introduced Amyloban® 3399, a breakthrough brain function support supplement from Lion's Mane mushrooms.*

Recognizing its successful expansion beyond Maitake, in late 2009 the company changed its name to Mushroom Wisdom, Inc. The new name also reflects centuries-old knowledge in Japan and China regarding the benefits of mushrooms, the extensive mycological research that the company consistently supports, and the growing number of Western consumers becoming aware of the healthful benefits of mushrooms.

Mushroom Wisdom enjoyed its history as a global mushroom supplement leader, deeply dedicated to consumers and the healthcare professionals who serve them.
