Shiitake Mushroom Extract
Lentinula edodes Mushroom
Black Forest Mushroom
Shiitake Mushroom Known as “Shiitake contains a powder that has been hot water extracted from Shiitake Mushrooms to increase the potency. By removing fiber through hot water extraction, your body can absorb the beneficial polysaccharide more easily than a regular mushroom.
Shiitake Mushroom Extract is 100% water-soluble without any sediment and impurities. It is rich in the polysaccharide. You could add half a teaspoon of powder to your daily shake, smoothie, tea, or coffee. Or, get creative and add half a teaspoon to a favorite recipe.
Appearance: Light Brown Fine Powder
Odor: Characteristic odor
Shiitake as whole foods
You can cook with both fresh and dried shiitake, although the dried ones are slightly more popular.
Dried shiitake have an umami flavor that’s even more intense than when fresh.
Umami flavor can be described as savory or meaty. It’s often considered the fifth taste, alongside sweet, sour, bitter, and salty.
Both dried and fresh shiitake mushrooms are used in stir-fries, soups, stews, and other dishes.
Shiitake as supplements
Shiitake mushrooms have long been used in traditional Chinese medicine. They’re also part of the medical traditions of Japan, Korea, and Eastern Russia.
In Chinese medicine, shiitake are thought to boost health and longevity, as well as improve circulation.
Studies suggest that some of the bioactive compounds in shiitake may protect against cancer and inflammation.
However, many of the studies have been done in animals or test tubes rather than people. Animal studies frequently use doses that far exceed those that people would normally get from food or supplements.
In addition, many of the mushroom-based supplements on the market have not been tested for potency.
Although the proposed benefits are promising, more research is needed.
May aid heart health
Shiitake mushrooms may boost heart health. For example, they have three compounds that help lower cholesterol (3, 6Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source):
- Eritadenine. This compound inhibits an enzyme involved in producing cholesterol.
- Sterols. These molecules help block cholesterol absorption in your gut.
- Beta glucans. This type of fiber can lower cholesterol.
One study in rats with high blood pressure found that shiitake powder prevented an increase in blood pressure (8Trusted Source).
A study in lab rats fed a high-fat diet demonstrated that those given shiitake developed less fat in their livers, less plaque on their artery walls, and lower cholesterol levels than those that didn’t eat any mushrooms (9Trusted Source).
Still, these effects need to be confirmed in human studies before any solid conclusions can be made.
Shiitake may also help strengthen your immune system
One study gave people two dried shiitake daily. After one month, their immune markers improved and their inflammation levels dropped (10Trusted Source).This immune effect might be partly due to one of the polysaccharides in shiitake mushrooms (11Trusted Source).While people’s immune systems tend to weaken with age, a mouse study found that a supplement derived from shiitake helped reverse some age-related decline in immune function (12Trusted Source).
Promising antibacterial and antiviral effects
Several compounds in shiitake have antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal effects (18Trusted Source, 20).
As antibiotic resistance is growing, some scientists think it’s important to explore the antimicrobial potential of shiitake (21Trusted Source<
That said, while isolated compounds show antimicrobial activity in test tubes, eating shiitake is unlikely to have any effect on viral, bacterial, or fungal infections in people.
May strengthen your bones
Mushrooms are the only natural plant source of vitamin D.
Your body needs vitamin D to build strong bones, yet very few foods contain this important nutrient.
The vitamin D levels of mushrooms vary depending on how they’re grown. When exposed to UV light, they develop higher levels of this compound.
In one study, mice fed a low-calcium, low-vitamin-D diet developed symptoms of osteoporosis. In comparison, those given calcium and UV-enhanced shiitake had higher bone density (22Trusted Source).
However, keep in mind that shiitake provide vitamin D2. This is an inferior form compared with vitamin D3, which is found in fatty fish and some other animal foods.
