Benefits of Shiitake Mushrooms

Shiitake mushrooms have long been revered in Japan for their cancer-fighting properties. They contain a complex sugar called lentinan. When you eat shiitake mushrooms your immune system goes in overdrive creating infection-fighting cells. Research has discovered that when people with tumors are fed a dried mushroom powder containing lentinan, they can inhibit tumor growth by 70 percent. In addition, these powerful properties are now being studied for the fight against HIV.[1]

Add these dark meaty mushrooms to your meals! They make a great addition to soups, stews, and vegetable dishes.
