Filled with Life-Giving Nutrients

Our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder is brimming with an abundance of protein, niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, potassium, and iron. Our careful growing process always guarantees that our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder retains the critical vitamins found in the Shitake, such as Vitamins A, B, and C. You will be hard pressed to find a better source of life-giving Vitamin D than in our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder, which is a rare food source of this essential nutrient.

Enzymes are crucial for enabling the body to perform many functions, such as digestion and the building of proteins. Our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder contains more than 50 enzymes, including Pepsin, which helps the body to digest food, and asparaginase, an enzyme that is used in treating childhood Leukemia.

Lentinan – An Immune System Booster

Many of the nutritional and healing benefits of our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder are attributed to an active compound called lentinan, which strengthens the immune system so that it can fight viruses like the flu, and bacteria. Lentinan reduces the ability for cells to mutate, and has proven effective as a treatment for individuals with the HIV virus.

Eritadenine for Lowering Cholesterol

Animal studies conducted recently show that another substance found in our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder, eritadenine, can lower cholesterol levels in the body, regardless of diet. It works dose for dose in combating high cholesterol foods, with increasing amounts of Shitake Mushroom Powder yielding a proportional reduction in cholesterol.

L-ergothioneine – A Powerful Antioxidant

Another powerful component of our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder is L-ergothioneine, an antioxidant that is more plentiful in Shitake mushrooms than the two foods thought to have the highest concentration of this substance, wheat germ and chicken liver. An American research team at the 2005 American Chemical Society revealed that it was, in fact, the best source of this essential phytochemical.

Treatment for Thrombosis

Our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder is a strong defense against Thrombosis, a condition in which a blood clot inhibits blood flow in the body. Researchers in Japan have shown that ingesting Shitake mushroom oil can reduce Thrombosis. Our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder contains the same chemical component as mushroom oil, lenthionine, which slows platelet aggregation.

A Proprietary Growing Process Yields an Abundance of Nutrients

The mycelia of the Shitake Mushroom contain the greatest quality of polysaccharide compounds, so we use this part of the mushroom in our Shitake Mushroom powder. We grow and harvest only long-established and proven mushroom spores, which are cultivated in gluten-free and organic substrates.

The highly nutritive matter that provides a food source for our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder is 100% pure with no additives or fillers. Our Shitake mushrooms develop throughout a carefully monitored process, which ensures that the most beneficial components of the mushroom are intentionally free from heavy metals or toxins that are present in many mushroom varieties.

After harvesting, our Shitake mushrooms undergo a cold drying and cold milling technique that protects the heat-sensitive enzymes, and breaks down fibers in the soft walls of the mycelia to make them more digestible.

Our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder is one of the first of its kind offered in the United States, and is of premium quality.

Try our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder as a tea, mixed with vanilla and honey, or added to your favorite vegetable dishes and sauces. You may also stir our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder into water.

Storage Instructions

If cared for properly, our Organic Shitake Mushroom Powder has a shelf life of two to three years. To preserve the freshness of this product:

  • Avoid exposure to heat. The powder will remain fresh if stored at room temperature or below.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
  • Squeeze all of the air out of the bag before sealing.
  • Seal the bag tightly after each use.
  • Store the powder in a dry place, and avoid all contact with moisture.

Packaging

We package all of our superfood powders in all-natural brown kraft bags, each with a resealable zipper across the top. Each bag has a thin metal lining, which serves as a very effective barrier to light, oxygen, odors, flavors, moisture, and bacteria.

While printed plastic bags with clear windows may look beautiful, studies have shown that the toxins contained in the plastic are absorbed by food that is in direct contact with the plastic. Foods that are raw and all-natural, like superfood powders, are even more susceptible to this type of contamination than processed foods.
