Planetary Herbals Shiitake Extract is a top-quality alcohol-water extract of the shiitake (Lentinula edodes). It is a very popular agent in Eastern traditional medicine known for its wide range of health-promoting properties.
Support for the immune system
The shiitake mushrooms are a source of many vitamins and minerals, especially niacin and potassium. They also contain many other active components that give them unique health-improving properties. One of them is a compound of the beta-glucan group, lentinan. It exhibits immunomodulatory properties. That way, it enhances the immune response and, as a result, supports the immune system. It reduces the risk of having an infection and supports the organism in the fight against an illness in progress. The effect of the shiitake on the functioning of the immune system is so large that supplementing them can inhibit the progress of such serious diseases as AIDS.
Lentinans contained in shiitake mushrooms are also considered to be an effective form of neoplastic disease prevention. That is probably connected with their ability to stimulate the production of interferons, the group of proteins responsible for fighting and preventing cancer. Shiitake mushroom supplementation is also associated with the inhibition of cancer cell proliferation. That, in turn, can support cancer therapy.
Reduced risk of cardiovascular system diseases
Shiitake mushrooms are extraordinarily effective in terms of supporting the health of the cardiovascular system. They were used traditionally in heart problem treatment, and recent scientific studies confirm those properties. The shiitake help to reduce blood pressure, which can be of great help to people struggling with hypertension. It also prevents arterial stiffness and erythrocyte aggregation, which leads to the formation of clots.
Cholesterol level reduction
When it comes to the cardiovascular system, another important ability of shiitake mushrooms is that to optimise the lipid profile. Supplementing them exhibits efficacy in the aspect by reducing blood cholesterol levels. An important factor in this case is the content of eritadenine, a compound that inhibits fat production in the liver. Reducing blood cholesterol levels complements the preventive properties of the shiitake regarding the circulatory system, reducing the risk of developing atherosclerosis.
Nervous system function enhancement
Because of the high content of niacin, shiitake mushrooms also support energy metabolism in the organism. Providing the right supply of vitamin B3 makes it possible for the body to obtain energy from nutrients efficiently. Niacin also has a beneficial effect on nervous system function and emotional stability; it is also suggested to be an antidepressant substance.
To sum up, Planetary Herbals Shiitake Extract constitutes versatile support for the organism. Its ability to stimulate immune system function helps to increase the organism’s immunity to infections as well as supports the fight against diseases, which makes the extract a perfect solution in times of increased incidence of various illnesses. Its supplementation should also be interesting for every person belonging to the risk group of cardiovascular system diseases and those who suffer from dyslipidaemia. The shiitake extract is also an efficient method of cancer prevention and a natural way to increase niacin supply.
In order to enjoy all the benefits of supplementation, it is recommended to take the preparation for at least a month. In times of particular susceptibility to infections, the daily dosage of the product can be increased in order to boost its activity in terms of immune system function.
