Additional Tips

Lentinus edodes has been used for both food and medicine for over 2000 years in China. Modern studies have shown that shiitake mushrooms are beneficial for preventing high blood pressure and heart disease by reducing both Total & LDL cholesterol levels, building resistance to viruses including the common cold, and a potent extract boosts the immune system to fight diseases such as cancer, Hepatitis B, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Lyme disease.
