Shiitake: Prized Adaptogen
Shiitake mushroom, one of the most highly prized botanicals of Chinese and Japanese
herbalism, is the centerpiece of Shiitake Mushroom Supreme. Traditionally shiitake
was used to improve circulation and vigor and to support a wide range of body
systems. Today shiitake is valued for its delicious taste and as an adaptogen,
and is the number one agricultural export of Japan. Adaptogens are defined as
substances that enhance general adaptive response. They increase resistance
against external stressors, have a balancing effect and stabilize normal body
Beneficial Constituents of Shiitake Mushroom Supreme
Shiitake is a rich source of lentinan, a highly purified glucan extracted from
the mycelium and the mature fruiting body. Shiitake Mushroom Supreme combines
Lentinus edodes mycelia extract (LEM.) with shiitake mycelium biomass and an
extract of the mature fruiting body. The result is a nutrient-rich form of shiitake
that captures the full range of its unique compounds.
Adaptogenic Liver Support
To enhance the effects of shiitake, Planetary Formulas has added another renowned
adaptogenic mushroom, reishi, plus a range of liver-supporting herbs.
- Reishi Mushroom is one of the most highly prized botanicals of Chinese herbalism,
traditionally used to promote longevity, and enhance well-being. Reishi has
been shown to support immune resistance in modern animal and in vitro studies.
SHIITAKE MUSHROOM SUPREME combines a concentrated extract of the mature fruiting
body with the mycelia biomass, to ensure a broad spectrum of constituents.
- Schisandra Fruit is one of the most widely researched adaptogens. It contains
numerous lignans shown to be beneficial for the liver.
- Milk Thistle is a source of silymarin, three related compounds shown to
support liver function and antioxidant defense.
- Turmeric is another powerful antioxidant, traditionally used for liver support.
- Additional Chinese tonifiers include Ligustrum, Lycii, Green Citrus Peel,
Rehmannia and Angelica.
