Medicinal mushrooms are types of fungi that contain compounds known to benefit health.
While there is an abundance of mushrooms with medicinal properties, Shiitake mushrooms are one of the most popular mushrooms worldwide.
They are prized for their rich, savory taste and diverse health benefits.
Compounds in shiitake may help fight cancer, boost immunity, and support heart health.
Shiitake may also help strengthen your immune system.
In This study , participants were given two dried shiitake daily. After one month, their immune markers improved and their inflammation levels dropped.
This immune effect might be partly due to one of the polysaccharides in shiitake mushrooms.
While people’s immune systems tend to weaken with age, a study found that a supplement derived from shiitake helped reverse some age-related decline in immune function.
A brief outline of this study discusses the present knowledge of mushrooms containing antiviral factors. Antiviral factors generally do not destroy their target pathogen; rather, they inhibit the development or reproduction of the virus. Administration of mushrooms, also used as dietary supplement extracts or biomass, supplies active immunoceuticals that may block virus cell-to-cell infection, modify viral receptors, prevent the adhesion of the virus to lymphocytes and stimulate interferon which has a general antiviral effect production and may inhibit HIV infection. Current strategies in the therapy of AIDS include antiretroviral drugs and complementary nutritional support considered beneficial. Nutrition is a fundamental part of a comprehensive package of care for people living with HIV/AIDS and mushrooms supply known bioactive molecules that may help HIV positive patients.
Promising antibacterial and antiviral effects
Several compounds in shiitake have antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal effects.
As antibiotic resistance is growing, some scientists think it’s important to explore the antimicrobial potential of shiitake.
May strengthen your bones
Mushrooms are the only natural plant source of vitamin D.
Your body needs vitamin D to build strong bones, yet very few foods contain this important nutrient.
The vitamin D levels of mushrooms vary depending on how they’re grown. When exposed to UV light, they develop higher levels of this compound.
In one study, mice fed a low-calcium, low-vitamin-D diet developed symptoms of osteoporosis. In comparison, those given calcium and UV-enhanced shiitake had higher bone density.
However, keep in mind that shiitake provide vitamin D2. This is an inferior form compared with vitamin D3, which is found in fatty fish and some other animal foods.
