Shiitake Lentinula edodes

Back

Sometimes known as the chesnut tree mushroom, the shiitake contains essential amino acids and vitamins B1, B2 and D2.

As an edible mushroom, it has been cultivated since ancient times both for culinary and nutritious uses.

In ancient China it was used to treat a wide range of ailments and to increase the qi, or life force.

We use it in our Mushroom Formula for the help it can give in nourishing seasonal health.
