Shiitake (Lentinula edodes) has long been revered for its health benefits and immune stimulating properties. It has been used medicinally by the Chinese for more than 6,000 years. Shiitake contain a compound called lentinan which is known to slow tumor growth. Shiitake mushrooms also contain a compound called D-Eritadenine (DEA), which helps lower cholesterol and supports cardiovascular health.
