Shiitake mushrooms are a powerful source of many nutrients and even contain many of the same amino acids as meat. Try adding shiitake mushrooms into your diet for a extra burst of vitamin B5 and copper.

Shiitake mushrooms are one of the most popular mushrooms worldwide.


They are prized for their rich, savory taste and diverse health benefits.

Compounds in shiitake may help fight cancer, boost immunity, and support heart health.


May aid heart health

Shiitake mushrooms may boost heart health. For example, they have three compounds that help lower cholesterol:

Eritadenine. This compound inhibits an enzyme involved in producing cholesterol.

Sterols. These molecules help block cholesterol absorption in your gut.

Beta glucans. This type of fiber can lower cholesterol.

One study in rats with high blood pressure found that shiitake powder prevented an increase in blood pressure.

A study in lab rats fed a high-fat diet demonstrated that those given shiitake developed less fat in their livers, less plaque on their artery walls, and lower cholesterol levels than those that didn’t eat any mushrooms.


Promising antibacterial and antiviral effects

Several compounds in shiitake have antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal effects.


As antibiotic resistance is growing, some scientists think it’s important to explore the antimicrobial potential of shiitake.


That said, while isolated compounds show antimicrobial activity in test tubes, eating shiitake is unlikely to have any effect on viral, bacterial, or fungal infections in people.

May strengthen your bones

Mushrooms are the only natural plant source of vitamin D.

Your body needs vitamin D to build strong bones, yet very few foods contain this important nutrient.

The vitamin D levels of mushrooms vary depending on how they’re grown. When exposed to UV light, they develop higher levels of this compound.

In one study, mice fed a low-calcium, low-vitamin-D diet developed symptoms of osteoporosis. In comparison, those given calcium and UV-enhanced shiitake had higher bone density.


However, keep in mind that shiitake provide vitamin D2. This is an inferior form compared with vitamin D3, which is found in fatty fish and some other animal foods.


Contain compounds with potential anticancer activity

Polysaccharides in shiitake mushrooms may also have an anticancer effect.

For example, the polysaccharide lentinan helps fight tumors by activating your immune system .

Lentinan has been shown to inhibit the growth and spread of leukemia cells.

In China and Japan, an injectable form of lentinan is used alongside chemotherapy and other major cancer treatments to improve immune function and quality of life in people with gastric cancer.


Prostate cancer.

Lentinan is a polysaccharide in shiitake mushrooms that may help fight cancer. Shiitake mushroom extract does not seem to stop prostate cancer from advancing, at least according to a laboratory test that measures prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels. PSA levels can be used to measure the progress of prostate cancer.
