Shiitake was the first mushroom to be cultivated by humans. The practice dates back to 1100AD and a Japanese woodcutter by the name of Wu San Kwung, who is celebrated in festivals and temples to this day. Shiitake is a prized edible species, and is often overlooked in the West for its great medicinal value.

Studies have shown the benefit of Shiitake in immune function and cancer, skin and hair health, and the metabolic-endocrine system – cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. It has many compounds of medicinal interest – lentinan for example has been a licenced anti-cancer drug in Japan since the 1980s. AHCC is another compound which has been well studied for immune function and again is widely used in Japan in cancer therapy.

Traditionally, shiitake was used to increase stamina and circulation and to treat diabetes, high blood cholesterol, immune deficiency, and arthritis. High in beta-glucans, and vitamin D due to its high ergosterol content – shiitake is a fantastic addition to the line-up of medicinal mushrooms.
