Shiitake (Lentinus edodes)
A staple of Asian diets, Shiitake mushrooms have been valued for their health benefits since the time of China's Ming Dynasty. Beyond their delicious flavor, Shiitake mushrooms contain eritadenine, a blood cholesterol-lowering compound that is the subject of a growing amount of scientific research.* Shiitake also contains essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals. In addition to its support of healthy cholesterol profiles, studies demonstrate that Shiitake helps maintain a healthy immune system, liver function, and blood pressure levels.*
