Benefits

Known health benefits of Shiitake Mushroom:

  • Immune Support: Beta Glucans & other compounds that act as immunomodulators that help regulate the immune system
  • Cholesterol & Blood Pressure support: Eritadenine compound found in shiitake blocks angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), that constricts blood vessels and helps reduce cholesterol & reduce blood pressure
  • Supports Skin & Hair Health: Anti-inflammatory properties & selenium, help reduce acne, rosacea, and eczema. Selenium is actually a natural anti-acne treatment & great for healthy hair.. They are also high in vitamin D, which can help protect against environmental-related problems such as wrinkles or discoloration. In addition, they are high in zinc, which can help boost the immune system and improve the skin’s ability to heal. The dense presence of Kojic acid, the natural hydroquinone substitute, lightens the skin by fading away the age spots and scars. Thus, it delays aging and helps in keeping your skin young and radiant. Shiitake mushrooms are a good source of vitamin D, antioxidants, selenium, and copper, all of which are essential for healthy hair. They also contain a lot of iron, which combats anemia and can therefore prevent hair loss. The copper in mushrooms helps with the absorption of the iron, which can, in turn, assist with producing melanin, the chemical that gives our hair and skin their color.
  • Fight Cancer cells: Shitake contains a glucan called AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) and is widely used in the alternative and complementary treatment of cancer in Japan due to its immune-enhancing functions. Lentinan, a compound found in Shitake, is used as an intravenous anti-cancer drug with antitumor properties. Clinical studies have associated lentinan with a higher survival rate, higher quality of life and lower recurrence of cancer.
  • Anti Microbial : It has strong anti-microbial activity and the highest anti-candidal action among mushroom
  • Super Adaptogens: Known to help the body adapt to or resist things that cause stress (psychological, physical, and environmental).
  • Rich in Antioxidants: These mushrooms scavenge free radicals in the body, thereby slowing cellular oxidation and breakdown. This means less inflammation, less experience with chronic disease, and even graceful ageing

What makes it better

The fruiting bodies of this mushroom contain polysaccharides, specifically a type called beta-glucans, which have been studied to support immune health and overall wellness, as well as normal, healthy cell growth and turnover.* The fruiting body extracts we use contain these polysaccharides, without unnecessary fillers or starches. Shiitake supports immune and cardiovascular health.* Since the 1970s, the Japanese Mushroom industry has supported extensive research into the nutritional and immunosupportive properties of Shiitake.*

Shiitake mushrooms contain many chemical compounds that protect your DNA from oxidative damage, which is partly why they’re so beneficial. Lentinan for example, heals chromosome damage caused by anticancer treatments. Eritadenine substances help reduce cholesterol levels and support cardiovascular health. Researchers at Shizuoka University in Japan found that eritadenine supplementation significantly decreased plasma cholesterol concentration.

Shiitakes are also unique for a plant because they contain all eight essential amino acids, along with a type of essential fatty acid called linoleic acid. Linoleic acid helps with weight loss and building muscle. It also has bone-building benefits, improves digestion, and reduces food allergies and sensitivities.

Active Constituents of Shiitake:  Beta (1>3), (1>6)-glucans; eritadinine, Lentinan

    My family loves this immunity packet. If we feel any kind of sickness or cold coming on we take one packet everyday for a few days and never get sick! We have had a minor cold and that’s it all winter long. Great product!

  9. Tanya Sharma

    I started taking Rooted in December. I’ve been using Shiitake to help manage healthy blood pressure and improve endurance. It’s been especially crucial now for me since I’m also recovering from a bout with Covid in June. 

  10. Umesh Singh

    So i finally finished the pack I bought after missing a week or so. I plan to buy more because this product really helped with the rampant shedding I had. My edges were non existent prior to starting this supplement and when they would try to grow they were thin and brittle. My hair is now thicker and much stronger and growing nicely.

  11. Sanjay Tiwari

    I’ve been reading up on the health benefits of shiitake mushrooms and I wanted to try them in a powder form since I’m not personally a fan of mushrooms. initially tried adding the mix with just water and it was just as I anticipated. It was slightly bitter but not to the point that I couldn’t stand it. The taste isn’t strong either. Excited about the health benefits!

  13. Tanu Gondwal

    Bought this pack for my 14 and 10-year-old daughters. They have been trying multiple brands as none have tasted quite right. These did not win them over either. They have an earthy tone and a bitterish taste. Great price for the quantity you receive though.

  14. Tanuj Jhamb

    A severe lack of Iron in my body caused my nails to chip badly. It may seem like a small thing, but it really bothered me. I have tried castor oil and other home remedies, they worked, not no much improvement was seen. After having Shiitake for a month, there is a noticeable difference. Not only have my nails stopped chipping they have grown longer than they have ever. With that even my hair texture has improved. 2 birds with one stone, It’s a hit!

  15. Ravi Gera

    I love that it is 100% natural and non-GMO and that I do not have to wonder what stuff may or may not be in the supplement that I am taking.

  16. Satish Sihag

    No added sneaky ingredients, just plain potent Mushroom fruit body. Took them for my hair, so far working great, hair fall has reduced and I do feel like they look healthier

  17. Dhanraj Saini

    Glad to find good healthy products like this because I have an autoimmune disease and other ailments for which I’m not taking any medication. I’m always looking for good ways to strengthen my immunity 🙂 Hope it works for you too!!

  18. Dheeraj Rawal

    You simply get hooked on it. Great to have an addiction that’s good for you.

  19. Dheerandar Kumar

    The flavor isn’t great nor awful. Value is good for the number of wonderful vitamins you get to boost your immune system.

  20. DN Trivedi

    At my annual physical last year, my blood pressure & cholesterol were high. My doctor wanted me on medication which I refused. I started taking this product on Oct 26, 2020, 4 weeks later I had a blood test, and my blood pressure, cholesterol were normal. No side effects, my energy is high. I would recommend trying this product before medication and I plan to keep taking it.

  21. RK Yadav

    I purchase this product because I have blood flow problems and someone told me to eat shiitake mushrooms can dramatically change my life around but I don’t like the taste of mushrooms so I purchase this and not going to lie the first couple of days I didn’t feel much but my hands don’t get as numb anymore and now its barley gets numb so this product is defiantly helping me and its only been a couple of days and hopefully in couple months it will help me even more.

  22. Farukh Mirza

    didn’t really think this extract would make a difference, but have found that they actually do make for a healthier head of hair.

  23. Garvit

    I tried this due to its high concentration of Biotin. I tried taking biotin in pill form and it made my stomach hurt a lot, but these never had any side effects. My nails are the first thing I have noticed after taking these every day, they grow so much faster!

  24. Goldy

    I love this brand and can say they truly work. But I never order them from Amazon before and gave it a shot. Didn’t like the experience but the product was worth it. Would continue to buy, but only from the brand’s website.
