    Aside from being a natural source of protein, shiitake mushrooms supply niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, potassium and iron, and are a natural source of vitamins A, B, and C.

    When used in their sun-dried form they provide a valuable dose of Vitamin D, found in very few foods. They contain more than 50 different enzymes, including pepsin that supports healthy digestion and asparaginase, which is a substance that may support a healthy immune response. Recent studies have traced shiitakes’ legendary benefits to an active compound contained in these mushrooms called lentinan. Amonglentinan, supportive benefits are its ability to support a healthy immune system response in order to strengthen the body’s ability to fight infection and disease.

    • Containing more than 50 different enzymes

    L-ergothioneine, a powerful antioxidant, has been discovered in mushrooms, thanks to a new analytical method capable of identifying this antioxidant in plant material. In research presented at the 2005 American Chemical Society meeting in Washington, D.C., an American research team revealed that mushrooms contain higher concentrations L-ergothioneine than either of the two dietary sources previously believed to contain the most: chicken liver and wheat germ.

    Thrombosis, the formation of a blood clot that inhibits blood-flow, has been shown to be significantly reduced by individuals consuming shitake mushroom oil. The Department of Agricultural and Biological Chemistry at Nihon University in Japan has demonstrated that the levels of lenthionine found in shiitake mushrooms may possibly inhibit platelet aggregation.
