Touchwood’s double strength extract is Australia’s most potent Shiitake supplement | Made from Australian-grown Shiitake mushrooms
Shiitake mushrooms are one of the most popular, widely grown mushrooms in the world.
And for good reason.
They’re delicious and they boast a range of health benefits. And when you’re not keen on a stirfry (hello, breakfast time), liquid extracts give you access to all the good stuff.
Shiitake mushrooms can support:
- Immune system — thanks to high levels of copper and beta-glucans
- Cardiovascular system — thanks to eritadenine and beta-glucans
- Cholesterol levels — thanks to sterols, polysaccharides, lipids and terpenoids, enzymes which, when combined with eritadenine and beta-glucans, can help lower cholesterol
- Reduce inflammation — thanks to the compound lentinan, which has been shown to be anti-inflammatory (and is widely used in China and Japan to complement cancer treatment). Importantly, only the Shiitake fruit body (which means the actual mushroom, not the mycelium/roots) contains lentinan.
