What is Shiitake Mushroom Extract?

Shiitake mushroom extract is made from the fruiting bodies of organic shiitake mushrooms. Shiitake mushroom extract prevents collagen deterioration and improves the structure, organisation and quality of collagen, which results in firmer, smoother, younger looking skin.

Shiitake mushrooms, a symbol of youth and longevity, have been cultivated in Japan for over 2000 years (where it is known as Shiitake, the perfumed mushroom). In China, it was considered at the court of the emperors Ming as the ‘long life elixir’. Shiitake mushroom extract is very rich in essential amino acids, and the dense presence of kojic acid, the natural hydroquinone substitute, lightens the skin by fading away the age spots and scars.

Shiitake mushroom extract is packed with antioxidant properties, a totally natural active ingredient for strengthening the skin’s defence system by activating the immunocompetent cells (Langerhans, Macrophages and Keratinocytes cells) which control the immune response of the skin and help it to fight against environmental stressors.

Shiitake Mushroom Extract Benefits

Shiitake mushrooms were called “an elixir of life” in Chinese historical writings and were cultivated in central China during the 12th century.

In recent studies, dried shiitake and shiitake mushroom extract had agents that support immune health, skin health, and more. Often consumers wonder whether they should choose powdered mushrooms or tinctures. While both have many benefits, powders tend to be more bioavailable and concentrated.

The active compounds discovered in mushrooms have prompted studies and further research into their possible health benefits.

  • Support Immune Health

One of the main benefits of shiitake is that it helps to support immune health.* This is primarily due to the polysaccharides called beta-glucans. Studies have shown that these polysaccharides support immune function, overall wellness, and normal, healthy cell growth and turnover.

Additionally, it’s important to remember that a healthy immune system is closely related to gut health. In an article titled “Mushrooms and Health Summit Proceedings,” the authors note, “Preliminary evidence suggests that mushrooms may support healthy immune and inflammatory responses through interaction with the gut microbiota, supporting the development of adaptive immunity, and immune cell functionality.”

In a study conducted with 52 healthy adults, researchers found that regular consumption of Shiitake mushrooms resulted in healthy immunity, as seen by cell proliferation and activation.* 2 While more research and clinical studies are needed, we are excited by these promising results.

  • Support Heart Health

These mushrooms are naturally low in sodium and free of saturated fats. They contain compounds called eritadenine, sterols, and beta-glucans that may help maintain lower cholesterol levels, making them a great addition to a heart-friendly diet.

One study found that powdered shiitake could support healthy blood pressure. 4 Another study in rats fed a high-fat diet showed that shiitake combatted fatty liver and arterial plaque when consumed in five to 20 percent doses. 5 More research and clinical trials are the next step to verify these claims.

Shiitake Mushroom Extract Side Effects and Precautions

While these are edible mushrooms, shiitake dermatitis is a dermal (skin) reaction that appears as red lines or scratches and develops from eating raw shiitake mushrooms. It is a toxic reaction to lentinan (a polysaccharide isolated from the body of shiitake), which decomposes when heated. 4 Always cook your raw mushrooms before eating.

Before using any herbal supplement, you should consult your doctor, especially if you are already taking medications or have a medical condition. Shiitake mushrooms can be an allergen. If you are unsure of an allergy, you can have a test done with your allergist.
