Harvest Table Boosters Shiitake Mushroom 160g

Aside from being a natural source of protein, shiitake mushrooms supply niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, potassium and iron and are a natural source of vitamins A, B, and C. When used in their sun-dried form, they provide a valuable dose of Vitamin D, found in very few foods. They contain more than 50 different enzymes, including pepsin, which supports healthy digestion and asparaginase, a substance that may support a healthy immune response. Recent studies have traced shiitakes’ legendary benefits to an active compound called lentinan in these mushrooms. Among lentinan’s supportive benefits is its ability to support a healthy immune system response to strengthen the body’s ability to fight infection and disease.

L-ergothioneine, a powerful antioxidant, has been discovered in mushrooms, thanks to a new analytical method capable of identifying this antioxidant in plant material. In research presented at the 2005 American Chemical Society meeting in Washington, D.C., an American research team revealed that mushrooms contain higher concentrations of L-ergothioneine than either of the two dietary sources previously believed to contain the most: chicken liver and wheat germ. Thrombosis, the formation of a blood clot that inhibits blood flow, is significantly reduced by individuals consuming shiitake mushroom oil. The Department of Agricultural and Biological Chemistry at Nihon University in Japan has demonstrated that the levels of lanthionine found in shiitake mushrooms may inhibit platelet aggregation.
