In the 12th century, shiitake mushroom cultivation began in the mountains of central China. Using fallen trees and then wood logs, early cultivators were able to plant spores and help nature produce a larger crop. A fragrant and delicious edible mushroom, shiitake is now the second most popular cultivated mushroom in the world.
In the 1970’s, the Japanese mushroom industry supported extensive research into the nutritional and medicinal properties of shiitake. The scientist Goro Chihara fractionated shiitake polysaccharides and named the most active fraction lentinan, a pure beta-1-3-glucan.
As a dietary supplement, take one 500mg Shiitake Mushsroom Extract capsule 1-2 times daily.
