HOLY SHIITAKE

Connect to your inner radiance with Life Cykel’s Shiitake Mushroom Extract.

The Shiitake mushroom is ranked number 2 in the global mushroom market, for its delicious taste as well as its array of health and beauty benefits [1]. This mushroom has been utilised as an edible and medicinal mushroom in Asia for many years thanks to its immune regulating and anti-ageing actions [2].

The Benefits of Shiitake Mushroom

There are many bioactive compounds within the Shiitake mushroom, including the polysaccharide, lentinan, which is shown to increase the activity of the immune system [3]. Further, beta-gluans and ergosterols found within the mushroom have also been seen to prevent sclerosis (the hardening of arteries), which in turn may support a healthy cardiovascular system [1].

Read More The Shiitake mushroom also works wonders for our skin and hair. The mushroom contains large quantities of the amino acid l-Ergothioneine, which helps to reduce damage from UV light [4, 5]. In addition to this, the mushroom is a rich source for vitamin D [6] and also has many polysaccharides and triterpenes that serve as antioxidants and anti-irritants, which stimulate the natural renewal process of the skin. Therefore this mushroom can be particularly effective in skin care applications that protect against photoageing and improving skin elasticity [7].

The Use of Shiitake Liquid Extract

‌The simple and clean method of extracting the beneficial bioactive compounds from mushrooms in alcohol, to create a liquid extract, is still applicable today. As is the effortless way of incorporating these mushroom extracts into your day to day life.
