Shiitake and Reishi

Shiitake and reishi are Japanese mushrooms with a delicate texture, strong stems, and well-defined undersides.

They’re attractive and have impressive health-promoting properties.

Shiitake contain something that strengthens your immune system by increasing T cell function.

Shiitake mushrooms contain 18 amino acids, 7 of which are essential amino acids.

They’re rich in B vitamins, especially vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), and B3 (niacin).

When sun-dried, they contain high amounts of vitamin D.

Their effectiveness in treating cancer has been reported in a joint study in Japan.

These mushrooms are considered delicacies and are entirely edible.

Reishi have been popular for at least 2,000 years in the Far East.

They were rated #1 on ancient Chinese lists of superior medicines, and were believed to give eternal youth and longevity.

Today, both shiitake and reishi mushrooms are used to treat a variety of disorders and to promote vitality.

They’re used to prevent high blood pressure and heart disease, to control and lower cholesterol, to build resistance to disease, and to treat fatigue and viral infections.

They’re also known to have anti-tumor properties valuable in treating cancer.

The mushrooms are available fresh or dried for use in foods (soak dried mushrooms in warm water or broth for 30 minutes before using), as well as in supplements in capsule, pill, and extract form.
