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. Further, 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[1-3].

The Shiitkae mushroom may also work wonders for your hair and skin. The mushroom contains large quantities of amino acid l-Ergothioneine, which may help to reduce damage from UV light. In addition to this the mushroom is a rich source of vitamin D and also has many polysaccharides and triterpenes that serve as antioxidants and anti-irritants, which may stimulate the natural renewal process of the skin. Therefore this mushroom can be particularly effective in skin care applications that protect agaisnt photoageing and improving skin elasticity [3-7].
