East Rutherford, NJ—As of the first of this month, Maitake Products, Inc. changed its name to Mushroom Wisdom, Inc. According to the company, the new name better represents the company’s diverse line of mushroom supplements, which includes its newly launched Amyloban 3399 Lion’s Mane supplement and other medicinal mushrooms like reishi, turkey tail, cordyceps and more.

Michael Shirota, president and CEO, stated the new name also reflects “centuries-old knowledge in Japan and China regarding the benefits of medicinal mushrooms, the extensive mycological research that our company supports, and the growing number of American consumers who are becoming more knowledgeable about the health benefits of medicinal mushrooms.”
