1. Immune System
Shiitake may help boost immunity, according to a small 2008 clinical trial in Nutrition and Cancer. For the study, 21 healthy volunteers took either an supplement or a placebo every day for four weeks. At the study's end, members of it group showed a significantly greater increase in the number of dendritic cells (a type of cell involved in the immune response).
2. Chemotherapy Side Effects
Animal-based research shows that it may help reduce certain side effects of chemotherapy. For instance, in a 2009 report from the Journal of Experimental Therapeutics and Oncology, scientists discovered that treating mice with it helped shield them from chemotherapy-induced liver damage and bone marrow suppression. However, it's too soon to tell whether it may also help alleviate chemotherapy side effects in humans.
Shiitake may help inhibit cancer development, according to a 2006 animal-based study inCancer Immunology and Immunotherapy. In an experiment involving mice inoculated with cancer cells, its treatment significantly enhanced immune response and delayed tumor development.
2. Inflammatory Bowel Disease
It shows promise in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. In a 2007 study on rats (Journal of Nutrition), researchers found that it helped reduce inflammation and enhanced several markers of colon health in rats with colitis.
In tests on mice, scientists have demonstrated that it may help rev up immune response to flu infection. For example, in a 2006 study from the Journal of Nutrition, it appeared to reduce the severity of flu infection and boost activity in natural killer cells (a major player in immune response) in influenza-infected mice.
