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.
