Shiitake is the Japanese name that receives a fungus called Lentinula Edodes, an edible, delicious mushroom and according with numerous studies and clinical trials, with highlighted properties, especially to stimulate the immune system and to help against cancer.
Due to its great properties it can be said that Shiitake helps us with:
- Cancer treatment: It helps in cases of cancer and tumours since on one side, has an antioxidant effect (it contains Lentinan, Beta-glucan, the Superoxide Dismutase enzyme, Vitamins A, C, E and Selenium) and, on the other side, strengthens the immune system. Cancer patients use it to increase their defences and therefore, are able to reduce the dosage of chemicals in chemotherapy treatments and to protect healthy cells from the harm caused by drugs.
