Boost Your Immunity with Shiitake Gourmet Mushrooms
"The shiitake mushroom proves looks aren’t everything: What
could be scruffier or more taciturn-looking as it hunkers down on your grocer’s
produce shelf? Don’t be so quick to judge, though. This
mushroom-with-an-attitude is a study in contrasts: earthy but ethereal,
unimpressive but magnificent. It performs in a cast of potent fungi known as the
medicinal mushrooms, which number more than 200 worldwide and include others of
sterling repute, such as reishi and maitake. Unlike the Asians and Europeans who
have cherished these mushrooms for millennia, we in North America are just
beginning to discover their merits.
Our friend the shiitake (Lentinula edodes) is one you’ve probably sampled. This
mushroom’s meaty texture and rich, woodsy flavor make it a culinary favorite in
any dish calling for mushrooms, and it is especially good in meatless cuisine.
Originally from China, shiitakes have been cultivated in North America since at
least the 1980s.
Shiitake protects against certain cancers, tumors and infections—the latter
through antiviral and antibiotic actions. How shiitake executes its anticancer
campaign is not fully understood, but a constituent known as lentinan appears
pivotal. Widely studied, lentinan from shiitake is an approved drug in Japan,
used mainly as an adjunct to conventional cancer chemotherapy. Controlled
clinical trials using injected lentinan with standard chemotherapy show it is
effective against stomach, colorectal and prostate cancers. In 1999, a study
published in Hepatogastroenterology found that lentinan increased one-year
survival of gastric-cancer patients to 49 percent compared to no increase
without lentinan. And a trial conducted at the Saitama Cancer Center in Japan
reported that five-year survival of patients with metastatic prostate cancer was
43 percent with lentinan treatment versus 29 percent without it.

Cutting-edge herb research, common-sense prevention...
Medicinal mushrooms enhance the body’s general resilience and vigor, stimulate
the immune system, and confer antioxidant benefits. Since the 1960s, science has
been catching up to tradition, and many clinical studies now demonstrate that
these mushrooms do indeed shore up the body’s defenses against such afflictions
as cancer, infection and heart disease."
