Functional Mushrooms Take Center Stage
Functional Mushrooms Take Center Stage

Medicinal mushrooms have been used for centuries, primarily in Asia. Functional mushrooms have been approved nutritional supports to standard immune treatments in Japan and China for more than 30 years and have an extensive clinical history of safe use as single agents or combined with conventional therapies.1*

Grand View Research reports the functional mushroom global market size was valued at $31.71 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.2% from 2024 to 2030. The market research firm notes that this “can be attributed to the growing popularity of functional mushrooms as superfoods due to their numerous health advantages.”2

For approximately two decades, Maypro has worked closely with suppliers to identify the most well-researched and innovative mushrooms on the market. If you are looking to capitalize on the “Shroom Boom ” Maypro has three clinically substantiated nutraceuticals and a new partnership with North America's leading functional mushroom supplier.

Champex®: For Detoxification and Odor Reduction


Bad breath, or halitosis, can be a signal that the body needs to eliminate all of the toxic chemicals that wind up sneaking their way inside us via food, air, and everyday environmental exposure.

Champex is derived from champignon mushrooms, a genus that includes white button mushrooms, cremini mushrooms, and portabello mushrooms, which are all widely consumed as food. This extract suppresses odor compounds in the breath via methanethiol and allyl thiol reactions with the phenols of the mushroom.* It also improves intestinal flora by increasing levels of Bifidobacteria and decreasing quantities of putrefactive bacteria).*

Finally, Champex helps neutralize or capture certain toxic and odor-causing substances — such as ammonia, indoles, mercaptan, hydrogen sulfide and amines — from the intestines and the blood.* Not only does Champex combat harsh odors, but it also provides a powerful boost to the immune system.

AHCC®: The Ultimate in Immune Support

AHCC®: The Ultimate in Immune Support

AHCC is a unique, cultured mushroom mycelia extract that is rich in alpha glucans.* AHCC is manufactured through a patented, extended liquid culturing process that makes its active components different from other mushroom extract products.

While most medicinal mushroom extracts have a molecular weight of more than 200,000 daltons, the presence of acylated alpha glucans with a molecular weight of around 5,000 daltons is considered one of the attributes of AHCC that provides it with superior absorption and strong clinical efficacy.

Supported by over 30 human clinical studies, AHCC is used in over 1,000 clinics across the globe. Studies on AHCC have been conducted at some of the finest research institutions in the world, including highly regarded Ivy League universities. It is unique, in that it modifies both the innate and adaptive immune response.*
