Shiitake

Shiitake mushroom is considered a gourmet food in the US despite it being principally used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years in China and Japan. It is the second most common edible mushroom in the world.

In traditional Chinese medicine it is used to help treat:

  • colds
  • flu
  • heart problems
  • blood pressure
  • viral infections

Studies show Shiitake help fight cancer, increase natural killer cell activity, improve T-helper cell activity and increased survival times in cancer patients receiving injections of its potent extracts.

Studies confirm Shiitake helps fight bad bacteria, viruses and parasites. Other studies show it helps regulate healthy blood pressure and improves cholesterol levels.
