The Benefits of Shiitake Mushroom

There are many bioactive compounds within the Shiitake mushroom, including the polysaccharide lentinan, which is thought to increase the activity of the immune system.

Beta-glucans and ergosterols found within the mushroom have also been seen to prevent sclerosis (hardening of the arteries), which may support a healthy cardiovascular system.

The Shiitake mushroom may also work wonders for your hair and skin. The mushroom contains large quantities of l-ergothionine, an amino acid that may help to reduce oxidative damage caused by UV light. Many polysaccharides and triterpenes within the mushroom also serve as potent antioxidants and anti-irritants that may stimulate the natiral renewal process of the skin. [1-7]
