Shiitake mushrooms offer not only an amazing taste that is highly sought after in culinary tradition from around the world, but serious health benefits as well. They are particularly good for the heart. Shiitakes have been shown to lower LDL in mice, they also contain compounds that inhibit the absorption/production of cholesterol in the liver, and also contain phytonutrients, which aid in preventing plaque buildup and maintaining healthy blood pressure and circulation.
Our Shiitake blend contains 25g of powdered Shiitake mushrooms and 50g of Murchies Bombay Chai tea. It is a spicy flavourful tea that beautifully complements the earthy, smoky flavour of Shiitake.
Shiitake mushrooms offer both great taste and an excellent nutrient profile. They are high in protein & fiber, and packed with numerous other vitamins and minerals, including Riboflavin, Niacin, Copper, Vitamin B5, Selenium, Manganese, Zinc, Vitamin B, Folate, Vitamin D, and essential amino acids.
The primary benefit often associated with Shiitake mushrooms is increased cardiovascular health, they contain three compounds that help lower cholesterol; Eritadenine (a compound inhibits an enzyme involved in producing cholesterol) Sterols (molecules that help block cholesterol absorption in your gut) and Beta glucans. (a type of fiber that can lower cholesterol).
