Shiitake & General Wellness
The earliest written record of cultivation of the shiitake mushroom dates back to 1209 during the Southern Song dynasty in China. Native to various parts of East Asia, the Japanese began cultivating this mushroom species in 1930 by cutting shii trees with axes and placing logs by trees that were already growing shiitake. Now widely cultivated all over the world, shiitake mushrooms now contribute about 25% of total yearly mushroom production. Rich in selenium, iron, fiber, protein and vitamin C, these mushrooms are widely hailed for their properties aiding in general wellness.* Immune System & Inflammatory Health
Shiitake mushrooms have been used in traditional medicine as an overall curative herb to promote general wellness and immune system health.* Considered a natural adaptogen as well as a powerful antioxidant, shiitake mushrooms promote healthy immune cells by supporting their production and boosting immune system function and activity.* Shiitake also supports a healthy inflammatory response by regulating proteins that may cause inflammation.* Certifications & Quality
