Reduce serum cholesterol

Shiitake mushrooms have been shown to reduce serum cholesterol. 80% of the fiber dimension of shiitake mushrooms is chitin. It is a strong raw material that constitutes hard materials such as flea egg shells and crustacean bodies. In a paper published in Japan in 1985, it was shown that chitin can lower serum cholesterol. Shiitake mushrooms also contain champignon purines. A test in 1971 showed that lentinine reduced cholesterol by 5% to 10%. Another type of cholesterol antagonist in shiitake mushrooms is lentinan. According to Eastern and Western publications, shiitake mushroom extract reduced serum cholesterol in the blood of mice eating high cholesterol by 25 to 45%. It activates the processing of cholesterol in the liver, and experiments have shown that it has a significant hepatoprotective effect on experimental mice affected by liver damage compounds.

Strengthen the immune system

Current research mainly focuses on the function of shiitake mushroom as an immunostimulant and its ability to fight many diseases including atherosclerosis, cancer, bacterial and viral infections.

Studies have shown that shiitake mushrooms contain a large number of substances, including LEM, which has performed well in the treatment of virus-infected patients such as HIV and AIDS. The antiviral activity of Shiitake Mushroom LEM may be due to its ability to induce the production of natural chemical substances such as interferon that produce immunity to virus-infected cells.

Shiitake mushrooms have also been studied for their ability to reduce blood clotting; therefore, due to their anticoagulant properties, it is often pointed out that patients must avoid eating too much Shiitake mushrooms for a long period of time when taking blood thinners.

Anticancer activity

One type is called lentinan. Polysaccharides extracted from lentinus mushrooms also have the ability to shrink tumors. Lentinan is currently being used experimentally as an anti-cancer drug to stimulate the production of T lymphocytes and natural killer cells. Scientists believe that lentinan inhibits cancer tumors by stimulating certain white blood cells with significant immune function.
