Food Supplement

Lentinula edodes

Shiitake – Xiang Gu - Pyogo beosut - Nấm hương

MycoNutri Organic Shiitake is a professional concentrated hot-water extract and mycelial biomass combination containing 15% beta-glucans together with proteoglycans, arabinoxylans and secondary metabolites.

Traditional hot-water extraction provides high levels of the immune-modulating beta-glucans and related polysaccharides, while the mycelial biomass contains the full spectrum of active metabolites from the mycelium and young fruiting body of the mushroom, including other beta-glucans and extra-cellular polysaccharides, phytosterols (including ergosterol (provitamin D2), proteins, lipids and arabinoxylans.

Shiitake is the second most widely cultivated mushroom, after the common button mushroom. It combines an excellent nutritional profile and exceptional culinary properties with significant health benefits and is the source of Lentinan, a polysaccharide extract.  



Like other mushrooms, fresh Shiitake can be a useful source of vitamin D2, providing it is exposed to sunlight or UV light either before or after harvesting. 



Although traditionally used principally as a culinary mushroom, Shiitake’s health properties have been extensively researched in Japan since the 1960s.

CAUTIONS
Not all food supplements are suitable in pregnancy, breastfeeding or for young children, or if you are unwell, have health concerns or an ongoing illness. If in doubt, please ask us, your herbalist or nutritional therapist, or a healthcare practitioner. If you are taking any medication, please speak to your healthcare practitioner before using this product. Discontinue use and consult a healthcare practitioner if adverse reactions occur. This product should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet or lifestyle. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Do not use if the seal is broken. Because eritadenine’s cholesterol lowering action differs from that of prescription statins, or natural sources of statins such as Red Yeast Rice (Monascus purpureus), Shiitake is often used as a dietary supplement for those already taking statins or for whom they are unsuitable due to the level of side-effects. 

STORAGE
Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat.
