Reduce serum cholesterol

Shiitake mushrooms have been shown to reduce serum cholesterol. 80% of the mushroom fiber is chitin. It is a sturdy material that makes up hard substances such as flea egg shells and crustacean bodies. In a 1985 paper published in Japan, it was shown that chitin can lower serum cholesterol. Shiitake mushrooms also contain shiitake purine. An experiment in 1971 showed that shiitake purine reduced cholesterol by 5% to 10%. Another type of cholesterol-resistant substance in Lentinula edodes is Lentinan. According to Eastern and Western publications, mushroom extracts have reduced serum cholesterol in the blood of mice consuming high cholesterol by 25-45%. It activates and processes cholesterol in the liver, and experiments have shown a significant hepatoprotective effect on test mice affected by liver injury compounds.

Anticancer activity
