Shiitake Mushrooms have been called the “miracle mushroom” due to their powerful immune boosting and cancer fighting properties. They contain all eight of the essential amino acids and vitamins such as B12, A, D, and C. Shiitake Mushrooms also contain interferons which are natural proteins that have strong antiviral effects on the body.
Interferons have the ability to inhibit the replication of viruses, bacteria, parasites, and cancerous cells. Shiitake Mushroom extracts contain a significant amount of 1,3 beta-glucan and lentinan which has been shown to slow tumor growth, reduce tumor activity, and lessen the side effects of cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation.
Shiitake mushrooms have also been known to benefit heart disease, hepatitis, and auto-immune disorders such as AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, fibrocystic breast disease, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia. Shiitake Mushrooms also can help to regulate blood pressure, lower blood cholesterol, thin the blood, and aid in preventing strokes and heart attacks.
Shiitake Mushrooms contain an excellent bioavailable form of iron which makes them a great addition to help keep your blood strong and to prevent anemia. Shiitake mushrooms are among the few natural sources of germanium, a mineral that has the ability to counteract the effects of pollutants and increase resistance to disease.
Shiitake Mushrooms are also rich in zinc which is highly beneficial for treating viral and bacterial infections, regulating prostate gland functioning, and for healing skin problems. Shiitake Mushrooms are prized around the world for their medicinal and healing properties. They can be added to your soup, salad, grain, and vegetable dishes or taken in supplement form as a capsule, tincture, or powder.
