Shiitake mushrooms are the most familiar edible mushrooms in Japan and China. Shiitake mushrooms contain mushroom-specific components such as Ientinan (β-glucan) and eritadenine.
Lentinan is known for its antitumor activity, and has been reported to have the effect of activating lymphocytes, which suppress the development and progression of cancer, and the effect of resistance to viral diseases such as colds. Eritadenine has an effect of preventing hypertension, hyperlipidemia and obesity by lowering blood pressure and blood cholesterol.
Shiitake mushrooms contain ergosterol, a component that changes into vitamin D when exposed to ultraviolet light (sunlight), and dried Shiitake mushrooms contain more of this component. Vitamin D helps calcium absorption, strengthens bones and teeth, and prevents osteoporosis. Shiitake mushrooms are also rich in dietary fiber, and are expected to enhance peristaltic movements of the intestine to promote bowel movement, prevent hypertension, and excrete carcinogens generated in the intestine.
Shiitake mushrooms contain vitamins B1 and B2 about twice as much as vegetables, and minerals such as potassium, zinc, and iron are well-balances and are low in calories. Shiitake mushrooms can be said to be healthy and effective for dieting.
