Considered the ‘elixir of life’ by Japanese elders, the shiitake mushroom boasts numerous amino acids, vitamins and minerals. The mushroom contains a high level of copper, which is an essential mineral to support energy production and maintain normal immune function. It is also rich in ergosterol which can be converted into vitamin D2 with UV light exposure. Vitamin D2 is important for the maintenance of bone health. Recent research has also found that Shiitake mushroom contains a cholesterol-reducing agent that may assist with cardiovascular health.
