Our shiitake (Lentinula edodes) hot water extract is standardized to 40% polysaccharides, including lentinan, which is known to stimulate white blood–cell production.A traditional gilled mushroom native to East Asia, shiitake is among the most popular edible mushrooms, yet possesses a polysaccharide profile with a wealth of health benefits. Our sustainably grown shiitake are cultivated in climate-controlled greenhouses and further standardized to 40% polysaccharides.
Shiitake contains several therapeutic polysaccharides; lentinan is the most prominent, triggering white blood cell–production for increased resistance to disease. Several other polysaccharides have been shown to improve numbers of CD4 cells that fight infection; this can be of critical use for those with suppressed immune system function.
