Sage, a new natural health magazine in Canada, just published a great article suggesting that 5 grams of shiitake mushrooms a day could keep the naturopathic doctor away.
Shiitake is one of the twenty or so culinary mushrooms that works overtime as both food and medicine, supporting a healthy response to inflammation and boosting immunity when eaten as part of a balanced diet.
Shiitake’s immune-nourishing power comes from an inherent abundance of lentinan, a polysaccharide that supports optimal white blood cell production and activity within the body.
We couldn’t agree more with the article, which is why we’ve included Shiitake (along with five other prized mushrooms) in our stress/immune medicinal mushroom drink mix!
So, what’s is your favorite way to prepare Shiitake mushrooms?
