Shiitake mushroom benefits:
Japanese scientists have extensively analysed the medicinal qualities of Shiitake over the years, and in 1989 revealed the existence of Active Hexose Correlated Compounds, which is the 2nd most popular complementary medicine for patients undergoing chemotherapy in Far East Asia today. A variety of studies highlight the fact that Shiitake is unusual in containing a large number of beta-glucans in comparison to other medicinal mushrooms.
Shiitake mushrooms are rich in zinc, which has been shown to increase testosterone levels. They also contain a substantial amount of niacin – which helps to open blood vessels and aids the filtration and movement of blood; up-regulating detoxification, which allows us to re-balance our hormones.
Compounds in Shiitake have been shown to help prevent weight gain and fat deposition due to their hypolipidemic effects.
The high amounts of vitamin D in shiitake could help control psoriasis – with a dermatological study from 2011 revealing that vitamin D can help both psoriasis and eczema. As a source of antioxidants like including Kojic acid (a natural skin brightener), Shiitake may aid the skin's ability to heal from acne scars. Shiitake's complex B vitamins might also be useful to help maintain skin hydration levels.
Triple Extracted, 1: 4 Ratio (Super Strength)
We carry out two hot water extractions and a final organic ethanol extraction to gain access to all the bioactive compounds responsible for Shiitake's immuno-modulating, adaptogenic and antioxidant capacity. Many capsules and supplements are shipped across the world in powder form as it is a more commercially viable way of transporting extracted products, however, our tinctures are prepared on-site at a 1:4 ratio (1g of mushrooms to every 4ml of water). Tinctures have a longer shelf life than capsules, provide a faster absorption rate, enable flexible dosage, and are easy to prepare by simply taking one squeeze of mushroom tincture twice per day either directly under the tongue or into a short glass of water.
Fully Transparent & Short Supply Chain
Each bottle of our organic Shiitake tincture contains 128g of Shiitake fruiting body*. Because our supply chain is so much shorter, and we prepare our tincture in comparatively small batches, you can be sure that the extracts you buy from us haven't lost bioactive compounds due to sitting around for a long time or being shipped halfway across the world.
