Mushrooms have meat that is thick and tender, tasty, unlike anything else, and full of nutrients. It is well-known as both a food and a healing fungus. Shiitake mushrooms have a long history of being used to treat intestinal parasites, enhance vitality, and treat colds. Fat, sugar, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals are all present in shiitake mushrooms. High-quality shiitake mushrooms are used to make shiitake mushroom extract, which is obtained by technological fermentation. Shiitake mushrooms contain lentinan, (1→3), (1→6), (1→3)) glucan, as well as lentinan and shiitake adenine.
Studies have shown that shiitake mushroom extract can eradicate the HPV sexually transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer within 90 days and that shiitake mushrooms’ “active hexose” can slow the growth of cervical malignancies.
1. Unsaturated fatty acids found in shiitake mushrooms include ergosterol and fungi sterol. Ergosterol can be transformed into vitamin D in large quantities, which improves the body’s defenses against sickness and helps to ward off colds. Shiitake mushroom consumption is helpful in preventing rickets (particularly in babies), which is brought on by the body’s inability to produce enough vitamin D as a result of problems with blood phosphorus and calcium metabolism, as well as a number of mucosal and skin inflammations.
2. Liver cirrhosis and arteriosclerosis can be avoided thanks to the eriadenine and choline found in shiitake mushrooms. Blood pressure is decreased by butyrate oxidase.
3. Shiitake mushrooms were also used to isolate the serum cholesterol-lowering substances C6H11O4N5, C9H11O3N.
Chitin, which helps decrease serum cholesterol, makes up 80% of the shiitake fiber in shiitake mushroom extract. Shiitake purine, which can lower cholesterol by 5% to 10%, is another ingredient found in shiitake mushrooms. Shiitake mushrooms contain butyrate oxidase, which lowers blood pressure, fights against several diseases like atherosclerosis, prevents liver cirrhosis and vascular sclerosis, and also has some liver-protective properties.
The amount of unsaturated fatty acids in the mushroom extract is very high, and a significant amount of ergosterol can be turned into vitamin D. This has a positive impact on avoiding rickets, which is a disease brought on by a deficiency in vitamin D in the body. Additionally, mushrooms contain double-stranded ribonucleic acid, which inhibits platelet aggregation, induces the production of interferon, has antiviral properties, and strengthens the body’s defenses against sickness and the symptoms of the common cold.
