What Are Shiitake Mushrooms?
These mushrooms are known scientifically by the name Lentinus edodes, but you likely know them simply as Shiitake mushrooms. They are quite popular in the culinary world and are commonly used in a variety of dishes.
In fact, a Cornell University publication notes that the Shiitake mushroom is the second most-produced mushroom in the world.
However, before this fungus became so common around the globe, it grew on hardwoods in East Asia.
Shiitake spores thrive when they land on dead or fallen trees or limbs. They build a hidden mycelial network that produces fruiting bodies, which is the above-ground part of the mushroom that we forage and eat.
The Shiitake mushroom has a history of use both in the kitchen and in herbalism. In Chinese historical writings it was called “an elixir of life.” This mushroom was first cultivated in central China during the 12th century.
Unlike more unusual-looking mushrooms such as Cordyceps or Chaga, the Shiitake mushroom boasts the typical umbrella shape that comes to mind when we think of mushrooms. They are tan or brown in color and typically measure two to four inches in diameter.
Shiitake mushrooms aren’t just delicious to eat and easy to find. They are also unique in that they contain linoleic acid (an essential fatty acid) and all eight essential amino acids, and they are counted among the few foods that contain vitamin D (primarily vitamin D2, or ergocalciferol).
And, like other mushrooms, the fruiting body of the Shiitake mushroom contains polysaccharides, specifically a type called beta glucans, which have been studied to support immune health and overall wellness.
THE BENEFITS OF SHIITAKE MUSHROOMS
Research has shown that shiitake mushrooms contain several phytochemicals that can protect the DNA from oxidative damage. Lentinan is one of its vital components found in shiitake mushrooms; it protects chromosome damage caused by anticancer treatment. This mushroom is also unique because it contains all of the eight essential amino acids and many other types of amino acids. It is not surprising that this mushroom has proved beneficial to human health in many ways. Here are eight benefits of consuming shiitake mushrooms in your diet.
Some of the chemical components in shiitake mushrooms, such as eritadenine and b-glucan, have fat-reducing properties. Research has proved that b-glucan reduces food intake, increases satiety, and can reduce the level of fat in the plasma.
According to research published in the journal of Obesity, shiitake mushroom was effective in curtailing the weight gain in rats fed with high-fat diets. The results of the study made researchers conclude that adding shiitake mushrooms to high-fat diets is efficient in preventing weight gain. Some other ongoing research is focusing on the efficiency of shiitake mushroom for the prevention and treatment of obesity and other metabolic disorders in man.
SUPPORTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
The high nutrient content of shiitake mushroom, which includes vital vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, makes shiitake a potent immune booster.
A study carried out by the American College of Nutrition made participants consume five to ten grams of mushrooms daily. The test also has a control group that does not consume shiitake mushroom at all. At the end of the experiment, it was found that the group that consumed shiitake mushroom has improved gut immunity and cell-effector functions. The research also shows that shiitake mushroom consumption leads to a reduction in gut inflammation.
KILLS CANCER CELLS
Some research has indicated the potency of shiitake mushroom in fighting cancer cells. Also, lentinan, one of the chemical compositions in mushroom, is thought to restore chromosomes damaged caused by cancer treatments.
In 2006, a group of researchers made a study on the potency of ethyl acetate extracted from shiitake mushroom. The result published in the Alternative and Complementary Medicine shows that shiitake mushroom is capable of inhibiting growth in tumor cells through microchemical actions. Shiitake mushroom was able to induce apoptosis, which is the process of programming cell death. This result indicates that shiitake mushrooms could be a potent natural treatment for cancer.
ENHANCES CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH
Shiitake mushrooms have a family of compounds called sterols that can control the way the liver produces cholesterol. Apart from sterols, some other phytonutrients prevent the blood cells from sticking to the walls of the blood vessels, thereby preventing plaque accumulation. All these features help in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system.
A group of researchers at Tohoku University in Japan discovered that shiitake mushrooms prevent the blood pressure in hypertensive rats from increasing, The study shows that feeding on shiitake mushrooms caused a decrease in VLDL and HDL cholesterol. Only the VLDL cholesterol decreased in the rats that fed on maitake mushroom only.
A study carries out in 2011 at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute in London tested the efficacy of shiitake mushrooms in combating gingivitis. They also compared the results with the top gingivitis mouthwash with the active ingredient chlorhexidine. Gingivitis is characterized by the buildup of biofilm in the gingival margin.
The results show that the patients subjected to shiitake mushrooms treatment experienced a reduction in bacteria and other infectious oral microbes. Surprisingly, shiitake does not affect non-infectious organisms in the mouth. On the other hand, chlorhexidine has a mild effect on all organisms in the oral cavity.
INCREASES ENERGY AND BRAIN FUNCTIONS
Shiitake mushroom has a high level of B vitamins, that is why it does an excellent job of supporting adrenal functions. It also plays a crucial role in converting nutrients from food into energy. They also help improve hormonal balance, increases focus, and cognitive functions. Adding Shiitake mushrooms can help solve the B vitamins deficiency that many Americans are presently suffering. Such deficiency leads to energy slums, cloudy thinking, and unhealthy blood cells, among many other symptoms.
EXCELLENT SOURCE OF VITAMIN D
We all know that the sun is the best source of vitamin D, but you can still get a decent amount of this vital vitamin from shiitake mushrooms. Vitamin D is crucial for healthy bone and teeth formation and minimizes the risk of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases as well as autoimmune diseases. This vitamin is also required for the normal absorption and metabolism of phosphorus and calcium.
Other benefits of vitamin D include support for the proper functioning of the immune system and maintenance of healthy brain functions. It also reduces the severity of asthma attacks and lowers the risks of multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis in women.
IMPROVES SKIN HEALTH.
A combination of selenium, vitamin A and Vitamin E helps alleviate acne and its deteriorating effect on the skin. Do you know that two hundred grams of shiitake mushrooms yeilds about 11.4 milligrams of selenium? This figure amount to 16% of the value you need daily value. That is why shiitake mushrooms is an effective natural remedy for acne. The zink content in shiitake mushrooms also helps strengthen the immune system and improve skin healing by reducing the accumulation of DHT.
