About Shiitake

Shiitake (Lentinula edodes, Lentinula edodes) has its homeland in Asia, where it’s also used in gastronomy. It’s said that its taste is 4−10x more concentrated than tastes of other mushrooms, so Shiitake is suitable for flavouring meat, soups, sauces or salads.  Shiitake is a wood-decaying mushroom from the Basidiomycota family growing on fallen trees or stumps.
In Japan, they recognise two types of Shiitake, the more valuable donko with its closed cap and koshin, which has an open cap. Today, Shiitake is cultivated commercially in controlled mushroom farms, as the demand for it is huge. First mentions of Shiitake, date back to 2,000 ago, appeared Chinese medicine works.
It’s said about Shiitake that it’s the “queen of mushrooms” or “life elixir”, thanks to its composition. Shiitake is very rich in the necessary essential amino acids, minerals and B vitamins and also provitamin D2. Other substances found in Shiitake include for example, purine alkaloid erythadenine, polysaccharides ‒ beta gluacsn, which also include lentinans, etc.


  • for health problems: 3–10 capsules per day (we recommend consulting your doctor or Chinese medicine practitioner)
  • for preventive use: 1–2 capsules per day

  • take the capsules on an empty stomach (at least 30 minutes before meals or 60 minutes after meals), wash them down with water or weak green tea
  • when using medicinal mushrooms, we recommend increasing the intake of vitamin C, which increases the absorption of active substances. For example, in the form of a Barbados cherry extract Acerola.
