Quick Overview

Shiitake is not only a medicinal mushroom but is also an excellent gourmet edible. It is perhaps the most popular and best studied medicinal mushroom. Both the mycelium and the mushroom are commonly used medicinally. The main constituents of shiitake are polysaccharides, but it also contains ergosterol and ergothioneine, both potent antioxidants. Shiitake is immuno-modulating (increases natural killer (NK) cell action and interferon), anti-viral, and liver fortifying. Research indicates Shiitake is useful for fighting cancer, immune stimulation, cholesterol reduction and the treatment of HIV. An extract from Shiitake mycelium has been shown to be effective against type 1 herpes simplex virus. This mushroom has also been suggested for the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
