Although mushrooms like Maitake and Shiitake have been popular in Eastern Medicine for millennia, they have not gone unnoticed by the West. US funded human clinical trials have shown that one compound found in the mushrooms, beta-glucan, may enhance immune activity. Specifically, mushrooms like Maitake have been linked with helping the immune system to better fight infections like the viruses that cause cold and flu (it helps with phagocytosis), as well as helping with immune system diseases like cancer and allergies.
Mushrooms aren't just general immune support, their role in Eastern Medicine is to help balance the immune system and to help it work properly and more efficiently. Maitake has been shown to help on a cellular level, stimulating and enhancing macrophages (and other immune cells). Other research has indicated that Maitake may help with diabetes, since it has a hypoglycemic effect.
