Long used in traditional Chinese medicine, the Shiitake Mushroom (a.k.a. Japanese mushroom) is believed to hold anti-aging properties, promote good heart health, and help boost the immune system.
The shiitake has also been used for prevention of rickets, and some preliminary research shows that these tasty mushrooms lower blood fat levels and counteract cholesterol. In addition, it is now widely believed that these mushrooms can counteract certain cancers and even help slow the progression of AIDS.
Shiitake mushrooms are the second most commonly cultivated edible mushroom in the world and can be found in the produce section of most grocery and health food stores. They can be cooked by themselves or added to other dishes such as stir-fries and soups, or they can be taken in supplement form. They are a great source of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, dietary fiber, the vitamins A, B, B12, C, D, niacin, and the minerals zinc, potassium, selenium, manganese, phosphorus, and copper.
Add some shiitake mushrooms to your diet for health and well-being.
